Coriander is the Marmite of the herb world, you either love it or you hate it. However, talking from personal experience the Coriander Candle by L:A Bruket might make those of you who’d rather not have that particular herb cross their palette, think again. This powerful scented candle will energize and refresh any room with it’s citrus and mint notes.
The Samphire Candle by Laboratory Perfumes makes use of a number of herby scents including Basil, Lavender and Rosemary. Rosemary is a woody herb with a slight piney and tea-like aroma.
Herbs have been used for their medicinal qualities for millennia. Whether its using thyme to relax respiratory muscles or mint to cure hiccups, their uses go a lot further than just perking up a sad chicken breast. Yes many of them taste fantastic, but it’s the memorable scent each one gives off that we find so special.
The earthy sweet scent of Basil pairs perfectly with citrus notes – try Citrus & Basil by Hobo Soy Candles – a beautifully balanced and uplifting scent great for lighting when a headache looms.
Many of our candles use Mint, whose refreshing menthol notes are fantastic for waking up the senses. The Peppermint & Eucalyptus Candle by East Wick has been a godsend for me recently as I battled a blocked nose – not great when you run a candle store!
