Whether it’s the dark, damp winter nights or the hectic run-up to Christmas, we all need a
little luxury in our lives at this time of the year. For me, coming home from a busy day there is nothing more relaxing than lighting a few of my favourite candles, enjoy the aroma and feel the stresses wash away.
Scented candles and aromatherapy oils were once the preserve of the wealthy – a real
indulgence that many thought was literally a case of setting fire to hard-earned cash.
These days our private spaces have become ever more important – an escape from the
rigours of daily life – and candles are now seen as one of those treats we can all enjoy.
Often described as the “forgotten sense”, smell is our brains way of gathering information about our environment, and according to research we can detect somewhere between 4,000 and 10,000 different odours. Our favourite scents can instantly create the perfect ambience: for example grapefruit can help boost self-esteem and energy levels; while vanilla is ideal to promote relaxation.
I have created my eco-friendly candle collection to express my personality and allow me to share my favourite scents with you.
Heaven by Deborah Mitchell Afternoon Tea candle: With a stunning blend of a jasmine,
grapefruit and white tea this candle has been created to uplift and add an air of luxury.
Heaven by Deborah Mitchell Affection candle: Transform the atmosphere in your home
with the vanilla and coconut for a luxurious and opulent scent.
Heaven by Deborah Mitchell ODE candle: A sensual blend of agarwood, amber and
patchouli warm musk are the perfect cocktail to relax the mind and body.
All of my candles are presented in recyclable glass and are filled in the UK using high
quality mineral eco wax with an eco wick for a long, clean and even burn with no black
smoke. Smaller ones cost £19 and have a burn time of up to 45 hours and the large ones
are £28 and can last up to 220 hours.
