Eco Edit: Soy Candles



The other week while I was in Chichester, I stumbled upon Parkminster's candles in the store Bloomingville, the first thing I did of course was pick them up and smell them....ahhh they were all so amazing! The shop owner then told me that they were Soy candles, and began explaining why they are much better than regular candles...
So why Soy? Well, they burn for longer, are cleaner for the environment and your health, and Soybeans are a renewable source and are biodegradable. 

....Winner winner chicken dinner.

And all of their products seriously smell amazing! They come in lots of different fragrances; coconut, fig, grapefruit, lemongrass...and so much more. Mine is Meadow and it has a smell of fresh grass which fills the room with a really lovely natural scent, that's not too overpowering. I'm definitely going to be buying more of these candles, I also want to try out their saltscrubs, the grapefruit sounds amazing!

Let me know below or tweet me at @dimplesdiaries if you already use Parkminster, or now have them on your wish list!

Thank you for reading!

  1. Yup, they're so lovely. I'm especially fond of the fig, rose and grapefruit scents. They're made in the South East too so they're a local supplier :) Another big tick on their eco credentials!
