[Review] Essence of Jasmine Soy Candles

Hi everyone!

My last post on this blog was almost SIX MONTHS ago which is ridiculously long but I do have a good reason. If you’re following me on social media you’ll know that I got married in December 🙂 It’s been super amazing so far but also extremely busy. With full time work, part time studying and newly married life, it really has been hard to fit time for blogging in.

Today I’m reviewing some of my favorite candles, purchased from a local flea market. I absolutely ADORE candles and am always looking to add new scents and brands to my collection. Essence of Jasmine are a Perth based company that sell soy candles, melts, luxury soaps and other beauty products.

Product description from the EOJ website:

The Essence of Jasmine  Soy Candle Collection will beautifully fill any room with long lasting aroma, and with many fragrances to choose from we are sure you will find a favourite.

All our Soy Candles & Melts are hand poured using 100% soy plant wax & blended with premium fragrance oils to provide the maximum scent throw possible.

Our lovely hand made  collection of candles not only look great but are a natural Australian made product.

I purchased candles in the scents below:

  • Tropical paradise
  • Vanilla slice
  • Blueberry muffin

These candles are gorgeous, and don’t need to be lit to enjoy the beautiful fragrances. From the three candles I picked up, blueberry muffin has the strongest scent. Vanilla Slice is more subtle, but still has a decent scent throw. Tropical paradise is also a really strong scent, and reminds me of being on an island holiday.

The candles have an added benefit of being a skin moisturizer. When lit, the candle forms a melted wax pool. This wax can then be applied to the skin. Be careful that the wax is not too hot though! I have only tried using this on my hands – it’s not greasy but is a bit rich and heavy so I would probably not consider using it on my face.

The candles are $20 and can be purchased from the EOJ website. I have had a really good experience with the candles, so will be buying their soaps next 🙂
