Origins Feel Good Candles
Origins Feel Good Candles

Eep! I’m going to address the wonky label straight away – I am assuming that they’re not all wonky and it’s sometimes the case that samples aren’t the perfect version of things. This is a rare slip up in quality control and they’re certainly not lop-sided on the Origins site. However, these come in boxes so do make sure you open the box if you’re buying in store just to check. There are three varieties: Lemongrass and Neroli (above, and heavenly), Pine, Spruce & Orange, and Ginger, Bergamot and Clove. If you choose the Pine, Spruce & Orange, because it is the most seasonal, Origins will plant a tree via Global ReLeaf.

Global ReLeaf is an awesome organisation that has to date planted more than 10 million trees worldwide. It might not sound too exciting but trees are essential to global landscapes for things like protecting villages from tsunamis, expanding habitats for creatures such as orangutans, tigers and tamarins and protecting both human and animal communities.

Apart from the wonky label, there’s nothing not to like about the fragrant candles – they’re made from recycled glass (wine bottles – cheers!) and are 100% soy. You can find them HERE for £28 each. I’m also going to flag up an amazing Cyber Monday offer (my only one) because while investigating wonky-labelgate I happened upon it and it is genuinely incredible.
