Two things which I’ve always adored having at home are undoubtedly candles and crystals. There’s something so comforting about the soft light and wafting fragrance which a scented candle emits around the home. And crystals are another welcomed addition as not only are they beautiful to look at but they also provide any space with an uplifting vibrational energy.
So when I was contacted by Sukha & Sage to try out one of their crystal infused candles, I was intrigued and excited. I’ve tried many candles but have never seen one with crystals! Sukha & Sage is a boutique Australian brand which offers more than just candles. One look at their range and you will discover they also offer scented reed diffusers, crystals, and crystal essential oil rollers – all guaranteed to either uplift yourself or your home.
Back to my new favourite candle – the Fig & Melon infused with Amethyst. This lovely candle was packaged very carefully, so there was no chance of it becoming damaged in the post. Before I even pulled the candle out of the packaging, I could smell the delightful melon scent. It’s one of the most delicious and mood enhancing scents I believe you could ever hope to find in a candle – I only wish a wider range of candlemakers used this scent so that more people could discover it!
Opening up the opaque lid, I was sweetly surprised to discover beautiful amethyst crystals and glitter adorning the top of this lovely soy candle. This candle truly looks so unique and is like a work of art for any bedroom or coffee table. After quite a bit of time with my nose in the candle taking in the entrancing scent, I realized I was faced with a dilemma which every candle devotee faces from time to time – to light, or not to light?
You see, it’s just so pretty that I can’t bear to light it yet! The scent is powerful enough without being lit, so I could leave the lid off and the fragrance of fig & melon would easily permeate throughout my bedroom. It’s the sort of scent that instantly uplifts my mood and transports me to a happier place, of warm weather, sunshine and relaxing afternoons. Plus this candle looks lovely sitting with my own small Amethyst crystals at home!
Amethysts are renowned for being quite powerful and are one of the most popular crystals worldwide, for very good reasons. A member of the quartz crystal family, this Master stone has many uses; from providing a stronger connection to the divine, assisting to open up the third eye, increases intuitive and psychic ability and is widely used by many healers. The birthstone of February, it has connections to the Roman god of the seas, Neptune, and is also believed to protect against intoxication and over-indulgence.
Sukha & Sage also have other candles in their range, in various sizes, such as Watermelon infused with Rose Quartz. The scent of watermelon combined with pretty in pink rose quartz sounds like bliss! For an energizing fragrant experience, their Citrus & Sage with Moss Agate candle would be the perfect choice. I was also impressed to see the Brazilian Kyanite x Brazilian Sodalite candle offering, particularly as I have kyanite at home.
I also found a candle which I’m sure would invoke pure summertime bliss in their mango blossom scent. You can choose between the Limited Edition Citrine & Clear Quartz or the soft Rainbow Moonstone crystals, to pair with the Mango blossom candle. Citrine & Clear Quartz are two other crystals I have in my collection and adore, yet Moonstone is so soft and feminine – so a very tough choice to make between the two options!
For now, I’m going to enjoy my lovely fig & melon with amethyst candle from Sukha & Sage. It’s lovely to look at & smell… and when the time is right, to eventually light!
