Introduction to my First Way Out Wax review…

I recently went on a shopping spree on for some aromatherapy candles. They offer a wide selection of brands and are pretty much an aromatherapy one stop shopping website. I’m trying to branch out more into aromatherapy since they’re so popular. Carolyn is also a huge fan because of the soothing and therapeutic effects they create so I figure I better get with the program.way out wax,way out wax candles,way out wax candle,candle way out wax,candles way out wax,aromtherapy candle way out wax,way out wax aromatherapy candle,citrus candle way out wax,citru way out wax candle,candle way out wax citrus,way out wax aromatherapy candle

The only negative (I think) about aromatherapy candles is that they’re usually on the expensive side but if you find the right brand, they’re very well worth it.

Way Out Wax is a brand I had never heard of till browsing through so I definitely wanted to give them a try. I chose a pillar in the fragrance Citrus Harmony. It sounded like the perferct scent to test out as my first “aromatherapy” experience.

Way Out Wax candles are handcrafted from the Green Mountains of Vermont. They use pure essential oils and a blend of beeswax, fully refined high grade paraffin, vegetable waxes and hemp oil in all of their aromatherapy candles. I’ve never burned beeswax before so I was really looking forward to trying this candle.



What did my Citrus Harmony Pillar look like?

My candle was tall and skinny (2″ & 4 1/2″) pillar. The wax has a natural honey color to it. It doesn’t look like any colorants were added.



How did My Citrus Harmony Pillar smell?

When I first smelled this candle, it didn’t really smell citrusy to me. It was very herbally and complex. I decided to burn this candle in my powder room since it was such a small pillar, I had the feeling it was going to burn light because of it’s size. I was totally right.

After I lit my candle and came back about 30 minutes later, I came back to a wax-tas-trophy! It was burning so fast, the wax was just oozing down my candle and even overflowed off the stand I had it on. I blew it out, trimmed the wick, cleaned up the mess and relit it. The fragrance in the room by the way was extremely light and still smelled very herbal to me. Here is the scent description on Sensia.coms website:

“Awaken to the glow of sunshine. Stimulating clove and uplifting citrus help to revive a cloudy emotional state. Contains Orange, Grapefruit and Clove.”

That sounds lovely but I really wasn’t detecting anything in that description. The scent was pleasant but still on the herbal side. I’m wondering if I may have received an older candle from Sensia?



Overall opinion of my Pillar and Way Out Wax:closing to my review

I think if I order this brand again, I’ll try a travel tin instead of a pillar. This was not the best experience for me. I went on Way Out Wax’s actual website and it looks like they offer a lot more in fragrances and sizes than offers. I may go that route next time.

So, in closing, I’m kind of “iffy”on what I think of these skinny little aromatherapy pillars but I have a few more to burn from other brands so we’ll see. I’m keeping an open mind and trying to take in the whole “aromatherapy” experience. I’m sure I’ll find my favorite somewhere out there.

Happy candle hunting!
