Janjira Candle

I’m addicted to candles.

Even better when the wax melts down into a luxurious body oil that can be used to nourish parched hands and feet. So I’m thrilled to be giving away not one but TWO deliciously scented offerings from natural spa and skincare brand Janjira.

I’ve been an enthusiast of this Thai brand for some time. Their aromatic products propel me to a faraway land, plus their ranges are free from parabens, sulphates and artificial colours.
What’s more, Janjira supports elephant welfare – as some of you know I’m a huge wildlife fan. (If you share my passion you might like to read my review of South Africa’s Kruger National Park here.)

Well, now I have two massage therapy candles – worth £32 each – up for grabs in the gorgeous scents of Grapefruit & Tangerine and Jasmine and Ylang Ylang.

Janjira candles

The great thing about these candles is that once you’re ready to blow out the wick you can rub the warm melted liquid (a combination of beeswax, coconut and soybean oil) into the cuticles, elbows, feet or hands to combat dry skin. The consistency is lovely and rich – so it’s perhaps best to do this at night – and the lingering fragrance is beautiful.

To enter the competition simply comment below explaining why you should win and why you’re a candle fan.  Alternatively, answer the question over on our Facebook page and share the competition post.

The name of one lucky winner will be drawn at 8pm on Tuesday 27th February.

The competition is open to UK residents only. Terms and conditions apply.

Good luck!

Please do not worry if your comments do not instantly appear underneath the blog post. They have to be approved and may be held in a queue. The candles can be found at Janjira which has donated the prize in exchange for this post.

    It’s that soothing light in the distant corner, that fragrant smell of lavender and lilac, the beautiful glass jar that illuminates a dark room. The candles are all part of the illusion, the fantasy. The presence of candles creates the magical, soft glow that transforms a fluorescent-lit room into one of mystique.

    I first fell in love with candles whilst undergoing chemo, and in post surgical recovery. The low, warm light really helped me relax and fall asleep naturally. I found scented candles a great help too, if I didn’t have time to clean properly, I could light a scented candle at home, and feel instantly rejuvenated. Massages were also a part of my coping strategy, so it would be lovely to try a massage candle, whilst also being introduced to a new brand.
