Intro To My Candle Review
Citrus (Zest) was the second candle I was lucky enough to try from myHomeBody. They have launched a candle line powered with essential oils and currently have two scents available. My experience with the Rose candle left me impressed, so I was anxious to see if Citrus would live up to its sibling.
First Impressions of My Candle
I am more than impressed with the presentation of these candles. They are perfect for gift giving as-is. The hinged box made me feel like I was unwrapping a present. And..I was! This candle was just like the Rose one, except the pressed flowers in the glass vessel were yellow ones. There was a single, well-centered wick and the wooden lid tucked in the back of the box.
My cold sniff brightened my day – I smelled a zing of citrus that kind of tickled my nose. Here’s the scent description:
The Stimulating Yet Subtle Aroma of Citrus From Natural Essential Oils to Invigorate Your Day Like A Ray of Fresh Sunshine! This Refreshing Scent Comes From The Best Natural Citrus Essential Oils, Which Are Known For Their Purifying And Cleaning Properties, With Powerful Antioxidants That Fight Inflammation, Bacteria And Fungi, And Boost Energy!
I could definitely smell the citrus essential oil on cold sniff – I thought more lemon initially. It seemed clean and bright. The scent was light, but I was expecting that from the use of 100% essential oils. Time to light up!
I knew based on size I needed to place this candle in a smaller room. I burned this one in a guest bathroom, which turned out to be the perfect spot. Once I started burning it, I could immediately start smelling the citrusy notes and I definitely thought of lemons. It was such a fresh, clean smell – perfect!
As it continued to burn the inner jar got the full wax melt pool in under an hour. The outer vessel glowed while the candle was burning, making for a beautiful backdrop. This candle scented up the bathroom nicely, giving that lemony fresh goodness scent in there. The scent stayed confined to the bathroom area, which was a-ok for me.
How Did My Candle Burn?
Another winner from myHomeBody. This candle gave a clean burn and I didn’t notice any black sooting. The wick was easy to maintain. And the candle burned all the way down without wasted wax in the inner vessel. I LOVED the way this candle glowed while burning. It made for the perfect ambiance.
Closing To My Candle Review
I’m in love with these candles but I do wish I could get a larger jar. Still, keeping in mind what this candle is meant to be – relaxing, eco-friendly, and good for your health – this was a great candle. They would make perfect gifts, as is. I have since found a reuse for the gift box – it is currently holding my collection of matchbooks. And it looks good on my desk doing so! I also found that I can place a small tealight in the inner jar once the candle is gone and get another glowing candle effect. Score!
If you are looking for something fresh and clean, with a great burn and not too in-your-face, this candle would be a good one to try. You can purchase it for a discount if you buy through Amazon.
