It’s Monday, and Monday is often one of those days. You know those days. Days on which you have exhausted yourself. Days on which you have had to push just a little too hard. Days on which sitting down on your couch and emptying your mind are the only things that keep you going. On those days you need some extra comfort, and mine usually consists of a good candle, a blanket, a mug of herbal infusion (my consumption of ginger infusion has reached the level of self medication), and a dozing cat. If you are ever in need of a candle for this occasion, take a look at Aromatherapy Associates Comfort Candle.
Aromatherapy Associates Comfort Candle is supposed to smell like damask rose and ginger (now you see why I needed to try this). It comes in a very sturdy cardboard box, and container itself is lovely frosted glass. It doesn’t state how much it weighs (I’m really sorry, but I forgot to weigh it before I started burning it), but it should burn for approximately 30 hours.
Aromatherapy Associates Comfort Candle smells predominantly of roses. In the beginning I couldn’t smell the ginger, but eventually I was able to detect it lingering in the background. I am a bit obsessed with ginger (I guess growing up in Taiwan has that effect on people), but I can also see how it is not always easy to strike a balance between the warmth and sharpness. This candle does a great job in that regard!
So far the candle burns clean and fills the room quietly with its aroma. I may have said that my preference lies with candles that contain essential oil, so Aromatherapy Associates Comfort Candle is a big winner in my book! I am also looking their Indulgence Candle which contains jasmine and geranium, but let me first enjoy this while it lasts!
Have you tried anything from Aromatherapy Associates? The brand also offers a pretty extensive line-up of skincare products. Maybe I’ll venture into them soon!
