We Like to Light Up Your Life

And just like that, it’s winter. The official start is a handful of weeks away, yes, but it certainly feels like it especially at night here on the West Coast when the temperature hovers near zero degrees. Our friends on the East Coast have been taking photographs of the first snowfall, a light dusting to be sure but it’s a sign of things to come.

One of the best ways of making things cozy at home is lighting a couple of candles. Not only do SeaLuxe’s candles smell out-of-this-world, but they also burn clean so there’s no tainting the air you breathe with nasty chemicals.

Our candles are made from soy which is natural and burns cleaner than regular candles. You’ll know if your candle is paraffin as they’re inexpensive, yes, but they produce a horrible soot that leaves a black mark on your wall or furniture from the burning wick.

Soy candles have a lower melting point and release no known carcinogens into the air. Those familiar with our soy candles will notice there is more of a liquid max pool around the wick as they have a lower melting point than paraffin. In that liquid wax pool is where the lovely scent of essential oils evaporate.

Soy candles burn 50 per cent longer than regular paraffin candles, too, so they’re more cost-effective in the long run. SeaLuxe candles have a burn time averaging 40 hours.

Did you know SeaLuxe is now offering your favourite scents in a hand-made ceramic vessel? You definitely need to check these out if you haven’t already. If you’re the sort to get an early start on your Christmas shopping, look no further as these make wonderful gifts (for others or yourself, of course!). Once the candle burns away, put this pretty vessel to good use!

The Tradewinds candle with geranium and peppermint comes in a neutral and dusty rose vessel – one of our favourites. We’ve received rave reviews about our Westcoast candle as its scents of cedarwood, fir, birch, and pine are loved by outdoorsy folk. This one comes in a neutral and black glaze ceramic vessel. Our Echo candle is a beautiful and feminine combination of lavender, rosemary, and vanilla – another favourite – and comes in a white glaze ceramic vessel. The Anchor candle is heavenly with its fig and almond scent. It’s also a favourite (I know, we keep saying that because we love them all!). In SeaLuxe customer Asha Y’s words: “The fig and almond candle is the best smelling candle I have ever had the pleasure of burning and it’s eco-friendly!”

We have a limited number of rusted tin candles left in stock (the ceramic vessels replace these) and you can find those right here.

So if you’re looking to bring a little light into your life, look no further!
