Introduction to my Review of an Orange Scented Aromatherapy Candle from Way Out Wax:
This was an interesting review for me… the first time I reviewed this company, I didn’t have the greatest experience. I tried an aromatherapy pillar called Citrus Harmony and I didn’t care for it at all. It didn’t burn very well and I didn’t really care for the scent. A representative from Way Out Wax actually read my review months later and was appalled that I had such an experience with one of their candles. She offered to send me two travel tins and a new Citrus Harmony pillar with the hopes I would have better luck… no strings attached. How utterly cool and I was actually happy to accept because I really dislike writing negative reviews. I think every candle “and” company deserve a second chance.
Wax out Wax specialize in Aromatherapy and I have to say, I have a fascination with the idea of aromatherapy… who wouldn’t want to be relaxed, revitalized, energized, uplifted when you’re stressed out, tired? The idea alone sounds amazing and all because of a candle? I’m in! Way Out Wax has a beautiful website and I enjoyed browsing around through it. It’s very easy to navigate with all their products laid out in a simplistic manner. Great pictures and descriptions which is key for an online shopper.. They offer a variety of styles from votives, pillars, travel tins to small glass jars. Prices are very reasonable as well. I believe these candles are all soy and made with pure essential oils, key to aromatherapy. The candle and scent I’m reviewing was a 6.7oz travel tin in the fragrance Orange.
What did my Orange Aromatherapy Candle from Way Out Wax Look Like?
My candle was a 6.7oz travel tin. There was a label on the entire face of the tin as well as the lid with pictures of oranges on it. The wax color was a natural white and my candle had one wick.
How did my Orange Aromatherapy Candle from Way Out Wax Smell?
Orange… Mmmmm!!!! One of my favorite citrus scents. The scent description from the Way out Wax website is:
“An uplifting aroma that helps to relax and balance the spirit.”
This candle was wonderful!! I could smell the orange but there seemed to be much more to this scent than just a plain orange. It was beautiful, soft and the perfect strength. It wasn’t zesty like some orange scents can be, it didn’t smell like orange juice or rind… it was (I’m admitting it)… uplifting which is a very “aromatherapy” term! As far as scent strength… this scent wasn’t super strong but a scent you definitely take notice of the moment you walk into the room. Did it make me relax and balance my spirit? Not sure but it sure made me smile and happy.
I think the idea of aromatherapy is an amazing concept but I also wonder about the “power of suggestion” too. If any aromatherapy candle was to convince me though… this was the one. Citrus lovers… one word… “wonderful”.
How did my Orange Aromatherapy Candle from Way Out Wax Burn?
My candle burned pretty good. I had a bit of a struggle getting a complete melt pool but once I did, it burned great. Didn’t really have to trim my wicks much either.
Overall opinion of my Orange Aromatherapy Candle from Way Out Wax:
I am so glad I had a chance to try this fragrance again because I loved it! Thank you Way out Wax for sending me a new candle. You changed my mind and opened my eyes (and nose) to the world of aromatherapy. I can genuinely say I’m looking forward to trying more of this brand. I’m not sure if I’ll venture into trying their pillars again but I will try more of their votives, glass jars and travel tins for sure.
If you love aromatherapy, give this company a try and definitely try their Orange scent if you love citrus. It’s beautiful and not your average orange.
Happy candle burning!
