What was inside our Charming Candle? #notjustacandle

By | June 4, 2017

A couple of weeks ago, D reached the grand age of 13.  I know! Where HAS the time gone?

She was extremely excited about becoming a teenager, but not a “naughty teenager” (her words). I enjoyed looking back in a blog post, she has taught me so much about issues I might otherwise not have known about (SN education, mental health and of course, autism, the latter I don’t think I’ll ever stop learning about).

On her birthday, she rode about on her new scooter, enjoyed her cards and presents – although she later told me she’d really wanted a tennis racquet, I need to add mind-reading to my list of things “to do” and we had the chance to try out a luxury jewellery candle from The Charming Candle Co.

This is most definitely a candle with a difference, not only did it smell absolutely wonderful and has been hand poured in the UK but, waiting to be found after the candle has been lit a while, was a piece of jewellery – which D simply couldn’t wait to see!

Once the candle was lit, we waited a while and, can you see the foil-wrapped package starting to appeal in the melting wax? All the while with the most wonderful scent (Paradise Beach) delicately wafting.

The box has clear instructions that you:

– Burn the candle until your gold foil package is revealed 

– snuff (or puff by the birthday girl) out the flames, remove the foil with tweezers and let the package cool

(There we are, above, the white disc held the package onto the side of the candle)

– unwrap the foil to discover your beautiful jewellery surprise 

(Very secure wrapped, with two layers of foil and the jewellery piece in a tiny plastic envelope)

So, what did we find?

A lovely little ring which D was overjoyed with, I don’t know if you can see in the second picture but the ring has hallmarks which makes it perfect for my sensitive girl – she, like me, cannot wear gold/silver plate, we’re (swishes hair a bit) “worth it”!

Isn’t it lovely? I can imagine these being absolutely perfect as bridesmaid gifts or an anytime gift for someone special, you have the option on the website of ordering a candle with either a ring or charm bead waiting to be discovered and with over a hundred different designs, the surprises are endless.  It’s nice to know that by buying these, you’re supporting a U.K. business too.

Disclosure: we were sent a candle for the purpose of this review, my views and words are my own.
