Introducing LoveSpoon Candles

Disclosure: I received a product sample to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

The Cornerstone Collection Candles have wood wick!
They burn clean, smell good, and they crackle!

Have you ever heard of a LoveSpoon? In Wales, "a LoveSpoon is a wooden spoon decoratively carved that was presented as the best wedding gift which ultimately symbolized romantic intent." Because of their beautiful and intricate detail, they are no longer used as functioning spoons, but rather are presented as housewarming or wedding gifts, or are given as a gift to a woman. And that is from where the name derived.

LoveSpoon candles are 100% soy, and they smell really good! They're also very solid, and their classic look fits well with most any style of room. You can choose from two different kinds (with varying scent options for each). There is the Cornerstone Collection that comes in a decorative tin and burns with a wood wick. the descriptions says these wicks crackle when burning. How soothing would that be while taking a bath, or lounging on the beachside patio at night, doing nothing but kicking back to relax??! Oh wait, I'm daydreaming, there are no beaches around here, but you get what I'm saying, right?

The Monogram Series comes with a cotton eco-wick.
This is the one I tried, in the Lime Cooler scent.

LoveSpoon also offers the Monogrammed Series that comes in a glass jar. The eco-wick on these candles is made of cotton. A large number of fragrances are available to choose from, and I got a random sample of Lime Cooler. This tropical citrus and fruit delight begins with the scents of tart lime, refreshing orange, and crisp apple. Our Lime Cooler candles have the best fruity, flroal heart with rose, black currant and sweet vanilla plums.

Such a nice glow when the lights go out!

The Monogram Candle provided such a nice glow when we turned off the lights! It was impressive, and instantly changed the atmosphere. Funny how something simple like a candle can do that, I know.

This is after burning it for half an hour.
Very little amounts of the soy wax melted.
That means we'll get a lot of use out of this candle!

The 100 % soy wax burns slowly, which I like. After half an hour of burning, only a small amount of the candle wax was gone. That means we'll get a lot more use out of it in the future.

The Monogram Series LoveSpoon Candle burns clean.
This picture was taken while it was being blown out.
Notice, no icky smoky residue to wave off.

The Monogram Series Love Spoon Candle burns clean, and doesn't release chemicals that might be found in traditional paraffin candle wax. You can see in the picture above that when we blew it out (and this picture was taken immediately upon blowing out the flame) that there is no smoke produced and lingering when the candle goes out. I like that...nothing ruins the pleasant experience of a candle burning faster than blowing one out and being left with obnoxious, lingering smoke fumes.

Don't Forget Valentine's Day!

Don't forget too, that Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. Check out the many great scents and see if you might find one that would be just right for your holiday gift giving (and of course, these are good for any time of the year as well).

LoveSpoon Candles is one of those companies that gives back too (in terms of charity), and of course that is something we all like to see going hand-in-hand with a business. You can learn more about their charity efforts, product, and such by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Candles are one of my passions. I love my house smelling good, and candles is the way I do that. Being that they are soy wax.... I bet you can use the warm wax for a wonderful hand cream. I do that with my soy candles.

The candles sound exceptional. I like my house smelling like a french brothel.
A guy at the farmers market makes eco friendly incense. I really stock up for winter because the market is closed but he does live in town and I have his card. I gave Terry some when she was here. I wonder if she liked it.

Kimberly said...

I stopped using candles when Scentsy came out. It was around the time my son was born and I thought that it was safer to have. I miss candles though. It doesn't create that same ambiance that candles do. Now that my son is older I think that I want to go back to actual candles. I'll have to look at these! Thanks for sharing this company :)
