Set your intentions: 5 best UK crystal candles 2021
Both crystals and candles are associated with positivity, serenity, and relaxation. For this reason, crystal candles have become increasingly popular over the past few years, with many crystal lovers and candle lovers alike jumping on the trend. With this in mind, we've rounded up our favourite natural candles which are embedded with healing crystals...
What are crystal candles?
Crystal candles are candles that have embedded crystals either within them or on the surface of the wax. The idea behind these candles is that, when lit, both the candle and the crystals will amplify any intentions you make.
How do you use crystal candles?
Most crystal candle makers suggest you close your eyes, set an intention, light your candle, and imagine the candle and crystal are amplifying your positive thoughts. For best results, try setting an intention that suits the aromatherapeutic properties of the candle, and the healing properties of the candle.

We love these crystal candles from Hoof and Paw (from £18). Each one is handmade in Oxfordshire, using soy wax, pure essential oils, and ethically sourced crystals.
The company creates a range of different candles for different moods and purposes, by matching crystals and scents with similar properties. For example, the Amethyst Candle is scented with a soothing blend of Lavender, Ylang Ylang & Clary Sage, because amethyst is believed to calm the mind and promote balance and peace.
If you're looking for other spiritual items, Hoof & Paw also sells a range of crystals, oracle decks, and books.

We love the Rose Quartz Candle, which is delicately scented with rose and features a beautiful pink crystal that is associated with love. It would make the perfect gift for a loved one!
