Serenity Candle Co. {Review}

There’s nothing as romantic as candles. After a long, hard day with the kids, my favorite thing to see is my room lit up in candles, a hot bubble bath drawn up with my favorite book lying right next to the tub, and rose petals strewn about the floor….OKAY, I know this is just silly and over-the-top and has not happened ONCE in our six years of marriage (no fault to my hubby who has done PLENTY of lovely, romantic things for me), but a good smelling candle does do a lot to help my mood and to lift my spirits when I’m home (as well as remove any weird lingering odors from dinner the night before or the fact that I never got around to a shower after my morning workout). I also love  burning “themed” candles, i.e tropical scents in the summer, pumpkin and cinnamon scents in the Fall, and warm, sugary scents in the winter. Thank goodness CandleShop.com has all those and more!

The Serenity Candle Company specializes in making  the only 100% vegetable soy-based wax, clean-burning candle. All Soy Serenity candles feature eco-cotton wicks and are backed by their 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. Their soy candles include such mouth-watering scents as Apple Crumble, Sugar Cane & Vanilla, Gingerbread Spice Cake, Pineapple Cilantro and Oatmeal Milk & Honey. Their Aromatherapy candles feature scents such as Lemon Lavender, Vanilla Peppermint, Rose Bouquet and White Tea & Ginger. Most scents come in Small, Medium, Large and Extra-Large Jars, plus they sell Tea Light Candles, Tart Melts, Soy Melts and Wax Melts all in multiple scents. One of their neatest products is their Jewelry Candles, which is a candle with a piece of silver jewelry embedded in the candle–the jewelry could be worth $15-1500! What a great gift that would make!

I was sent samples of two lovely smelling candles, the Awapuhi Seaberry and the Noni Fruit. Both of these candles have a great tropical scent and made a perfect addition to our house this summer. Soy Serenity Brand Candles promise to have a longer burn time and a stronger scent throw than other candles, and I can tell you this is true! The scents are so strong that even when not even lit, I can smell them from across the room! I have to store them in a closed bag or else the scent is too strong for me…and this is when NOT LIT! Imagine how great your house could smell when the candle is actually lit! Soy Serenity candles light easily and burn prettily, thought you will notice a mottled look when it’s done burning due to the vegetable-based wax. This just lets you know it’s 100% legit!

Soy Serenity Candles can be purchased online at CandleShop.com. Compared to other candle companies, their candles are a bargain.

 One facet of womanhood I failed to mention in my post yesterday occurs when the monthly-surprise-that-doesn’t-come-in-the-mail hits and turns me into a completely different woman, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde style.  I hate how quickly I can become short with my husband and impatient with my sweet boys, while also feeling like I’ve lost energy and have waves of conflicting emotions hitting constantly.

28-Day Hug is a monthly surprise package that comes at just the right time of the month and gives you a pick-me-up via a care package.  In each package, 28-Day Hug includes good quality delicious chocolate, some packets of tea, and an aromatherapy bath salt or shower tablet.  I loved being able to soak in the tub before going to bed on a particularly freezing cold night, and I especially loved trying the shower tablet — I’ve never bought one of these before, and I think that I’m hooked now!  Showers always feel more practical than relaxing to me, but this Relaxing Lavender shower tablet changed all that for me.

One of our absolute favorite times of the day is when the mail comes and my boys run out to greet the mail carrier and collect our packages and letters so they can bring back a “special delivery” for me.  In that exchange, though, I’d rather not have it exposed to the world that I’m ready for a hug — for this reason alone, it’s perfect that 28-Day Hug is sent in a discreet small package.  It’s also helpful to not draw the attention of my two little boys since it’s more difficult to eat my chocolate in the closet when they’re knocking down the door.  🙂

 The best part about 28-Day Hug is their pricing – a monthly subscription costs only $3.99 plus shipping and handling (currently set at $1.99)!   Head over to 28-Day Hug, read through their incredibly witty explanation of their subscription services, and sign yourself up for a monthly hug.
