Lights down low – cockles and heart candle review

Cockles and Hearts candle tins

Handmade gifts for someone you know or for yourself are simply the best gifts. I’ve said it once and I’ll continue to say it because I love supporting small home grown businesses. Cockles and Heart are based in Devon (one of our favourite places in the world) and each candle is hand poured and individually decorated with herbs and botanicals.

As soon as my package arrived I could smell something beautiful and I noticed that as I unwrapped each candle tin from its tissue that dried petals fell in to my lap – such a beautiful little touch to include. I really appreciate it when such attention to detail is taken, and it makes me feel confident in ordering products to be delivered straight to my friends and family who will enjoy the unboxing experience just as much as if I had wrapped their gifts myself.

The rose petals and herbs come from founder Shona who delights in the home grown.

Anyway… I digress. Inside my parcel I received two of the four options for essential oil candle tins. Admittedly these aren’t fragrances I would have chosen myself by name but I was pleasantly surprised with the starry nights frankincense and bergamot blend in particular. It’s with a burn time of 25 hours plus this is filling my home with the most glorious fragrance which is perfect for this time of year.

All of these candle tins are available in 100ml and 250ml sizes and contain pure essential oils with a perfect blend of U.K. sourced extra virgin beeswax, coconut and rapeseed with a pure cotton / linen wick. The tin is reusable / recyclable and the lid contains clear PET which is recyclable.
