Old Factory Candles Review and Giveaway!

I am a self-confessed coffee lover and candle lover. That is why testing this product is like hitting two birds with one stone! I was so excited when I received the candles. I specifically chose to order these scents mainly because I haven’t yet bought a candle with a coffee scent.

The packaging is really cute. The box and bottles are something you can reuse afterwards. One box comes with 3 candles, each with a different scent. The ones I received are Coffee Bean, Hazelnut and Chai Tea. They are collectively called as Coffee Shop. πŸ™‚

These candles are hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. According to the company, the candles burn clean and even for 20 hours. It has always been my preference to choose clean burning candles so that’s plus points for this product.

I have tested each and I’m now burning the Chai Tea while I’m writing this. I’ve noticed that they do burn clean. Because the candles are made from natural soy wax (produced from soy beans), they produce very little soot and they are less likely to trigger allergies than artificial waxes. The scents are spot on. The strongest scent out of these three is Hazelnut. It filled out the room with its scent right away when I lit it. The Coffee Bean scent smells like a mild scent of coffee. The most calming of them all is the Chai Tea.

These are candles that I would definitely buy. These candles are also perfect gift ideas. There’s a scent available for every room in your house. Old Factory offers the following scents:

Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil + Giveaway!

I have this habit of checking out the ingredients of almost everything that I buy and you can find tea tree oil as one of the most common ingredients in bheauty products. So I was pretty excited to receive one bottle of Apothecary Extracts Tea Tree Oil for free and to share one free bottle to my readers. πŸ™‚

So what exactly is tea tree oil? It comes from the Melaleuca Alternifolia tree and it has been a medicinal tradition in the wilds of Australia for centuries. Below are some of the modern uses of tea tree oil:

– skin care
– first aid
– household cleaning
– hair care
– aromatherapy
– feminine care
– chronic illnesses
– dental care

The one above is the bottle I received from Apothecary Extracts. It’s packaged air tight in a dark colored bottle for a reason: light and air exposure are enemies of the tea tree oil. Storing it in a dark colored bottle allows the oil to stay as close to its original state. I did a skin test when I received this product and good thing, I did not experience any skin irritation or any other side effects. The product comes with an ebook “53 Uses of Tea Tree Oil” with complete steps on how to make your own body scrub, deodorant, lip balm, shampoo, conditioner, itch relief, toothpaste, mouthwash, oil diffuser, air freshener, bath salts, detergent, toilet cleaner, dryer sheets, oven cleaner and a lot more!
