Christmas 2021: 8 festive candles for the holiday season
With Christmas just around the corner, we take a look at some of the best natural + non-toxic Christmas candles to help you (and your home!) get in the festive spirit this holiday season...
This limited-edition scent from NEOM Organics (available in a 2 or 3 wick candle) features a soothing and traditional natural fragrance to help you create a warming and calming vibe in your home during the busy Christmas season.
NEOM combines fruity mandarin, spicy cinnamon and comforting tonka bean, plus 10 other essential oils to create a wonderfully spiced citrus scent. In other words: it smells like Christmas! Plus, all of NEOM's candles are made using natural wax for a clean burn.
Another limited edition festive scent: the Sapin/Pine Tree Candle from diptyque is reminiscent of a beautiful, fresh Christmas tree, with green, earthy notes of pine tree, Guaiac wood and moss, which combine to create an emblematic winter aroma.
Alongside the rich scent, the candle container is also speckled with real gold and a deep green shade, making this a seriously luxurious candle for the holiday season.
diptyque has also created a gorgeous home fragrance advent calendar, to help you countdown to Christmas in fragrant style. Click here for more information!
Give each of the days of Christmas its own atmosphere with this trio of votives: one each for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day! The Christmas Eve candle features rich notes of spiced orange & red berry, the Christmas Day candle smells like festive orange & clove, and the Boxing Day candle is scented like warming fireside embers.
The candle trio is beautifully contained in bespoke illustrated packaging, featuring a festive streamer design, accented in seasonal red foil. Perfect for Christmas gifting!
Plastic-free tea company, Bird & Blend Tea Co., has branched out to create two eco-friendly Christmas candles that are perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth!
Following the success of last year's Fairy Dust Soy Candle collab with Brighton-based candle business Jiminy Wickit, the duo have teamed up again to create two new festive scents - Salted Caramel Lebkuchen and Christmas Gingerbread Chai. The delicious-sounding candles are made using natural soy wax, which is hand poured into reusable glass jars.
If you want to have your candle and drink it, Bird & Blend also offers both of these festive options in tea format!
This budget-friendly beauty from Avgusta Aromatics Co. features zesty notes of orange and lemon, alongside warming cinnamon and nutmeg, along with rich plum and vanilla. The result: a Christmas candle bursting with a rich, spiced and fruity aroma.
Each candle is hand-poured into a recycled glass jar, using high-quality soy wax and fragrance oils. Decorations of dried herbs, cloves, anise, and orange peel are then added to create a beautiful statement piece.
Safety note: when burning a candle with dried materials on top, be sure to always supervise the candle, to ensure the materials do not catch fire. On the first burn, ensure all ingredients become coated in the liquified wax. This will prevent them from catching fire on subsequent burns.
Made from 100 per cent natural pure beeswax, this Gift Set from Sarah Raven includes three beautiful Christmas Tree candles. Not only is beeswax beautifully coloured and scented, but it also neutralises pollutants in the air, eliminating dust, mould and any unpleasant odours.
The adorable Christmas tree shape makes these a perfect addition to your festive decor this winter. They can either be left unlit as decorations or lit while on a drip tray, to collect any melting wax.
This is one for the mulled wine fans! Made with natural soy wax and pure essential oils, this festive candle is the perfect balance between fresh Scandinavian fir tree and zingy orange citrus peppered with fragrant star anise, clove bud & cinnamon bark.
With glass jars and cotton wicks, these candles are a great eco-friendly choice. Bouclé has also created two other festive fragrances for the holiday season: Petitgrain, Siberian Pine & Frankincense Winter Candle and the Stem Ginger, Rosemary & Clove Winter Candle. All candles are available in three different sizes, including a double wick candle.
This large candle from Adamo Home boasts an impressive 60+ hour burn time! We particularly love the minimal style of the neutrally-coloured stoneware jar.
The festive candle features spiced notes of apple cider and cinnamon, along with fresh-cut Christmas trees, all on a base of based cookies, orange peel and clove. Perfect for creating a cosy Christmas atmosphere in your home!
