Yen Candles - 100% Organic Soy Wax Candle in Lemongrass review
I was thrilled to discover a new company called Yen Candles via Instagram recently, and you are going to want to add this brand to your gifting wishlist ASAP.

I love to give luxury handmade candles as gifts, mainly because of two reasons. Firstly, virtually everyone that I know always enjoys receiving them, and secondly, there's that old shopping mantra of 'buying one for someone else means that I can buy one for me', right?! 

Needless to say, my home is filled with candles from various brands, but over the years I have begun to seek out more of these wax-based beauties from smaller, independent and niche companies because they often specialise in creating candles that are 100% natural. I'll never forget the day when a friend brought me a ludicrously expensive Diptique candle and I had to hide my disappointment when I found out that it was made from cheap paraffin wax and synthetic fragrances (both of which contain known carcinogens, so you know, not the kinda stuff you want to be breathing in or have floating around in your living room atmosphere...).

So if you're looking for a healthier alternative, natural soy wax candles are the way forward. They burn 'cleanly', so no nasty black soot or harmful toxins will be emitted, allowing you to fully enjoy the mindfulness benefits of lighting a candle, or just the simple pleasure of scenting your home.

Yen Candles are made from 100% natural, organic and GMO-free Soy Wax and are hand-poured in my hometown of Stoke-on-Trent. They are also cruelty-free and vegan-friendly, as well as being environmentally sound too; all of Yen Candles' wonderful plastic-free packaging is made from recycled and recyclable materials, and their wooden wicks are sourced from FSC managed forests.

I was kindly sent their Organic Lemongrass Essential Oil Candle and I've been besotted with the scent ever since. Lemongrass has always been one of my favourite Summer fragrances due to its uplifting and zingy nature - it manages to make me smile whenever I smell it, even if I'm having a bad day!

The candle's fragrance is composed entirely from essential oils (so no synthetic fragrances here) and it has an impressive scent throw, even when you take into account its large 340g size. Lifting the lid and lighting the two wooden wicks was such a pleasure, especially as wooden wicks produce a rather satisfying crackling sound which I'm sure is popular amongst ASMR fans. 

Currently, Lemongrass is the only scent available from Yen Candles, but I'm sure more will be in development shortly, so keep an eye on their Etsy shop below.
