Candles for Hope: A Gift That Keeps on Giving #Review and #Giveaway~ CAN 12/30

At this time of year, a lot of people are focused on getting everything ready for Christmas .  You know, getting the tree trimmed, parties, decorating the house, etc.  The Christmas season is also known for a time when people think about giving to others to help make their lives a little bit better.

Candles for Hope, an organization focused on spreading the message of hope and well-being for those suffering from mental illness, tries to make this happen by offering artisan candles for fundraising and wholesale purchase. They have  eco-friendly soy and natural beeswax candles to choose from that are scented with essential oils.  They are also Phthalate (a toxic thickening agent) free.

Pamela Buffone started Candles for Hope when one of her friends from childhood committed suicide.  Candles for Hope wants to highlight the importance of mental illness, as well as taking care of yourself by rekindling your own spirit.

When I received the Luxury Spa Candle that has been poured into a copper hammam, or bathing bowl, all I could do was smell the sweet essential oils this f the natural soy candle was scented with.  The hammam can  also be used long after all of the wax  has melted away.  It was so soothing and relaxing, I could not wait to light it up and use it!  I also liked the wooden gift box this candle came in, and Candle of Hope’s inspirational blessing, “May your life be blessed with health, love and happiness” made me smile.  For me, it’s always nice to know that someone is looking out for your well-being, regardless of where the well-wishing is coming from.

In order to properly test this product out, I decided to carve out an hour for my self one weekend and pamper myself by giving myself a mini spa hour, using Candles for Hope’s Luxury Spa Candle to help set the calming ambiance in my room.  It was one of the nicest moments I had to myself in a long time!  Illuminated,  the Luxury Spa Candle gave off an even better smell than when I had received the box, and it gave my room relaxed, cozy feel.   My mini spa hour was truly a success!

Disclosure:  I received the above mentioned product to review.  All opinions are honest and my own.
