Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well and have had an amazing weekend so far. I know it's Sunday (Boo!) which means the weekend is almost over and another week is on the horizon. I have mentioned in previous posts that I love to have a lovely pamper session on Sundays to prepare myself for the upcoming week...plus I think everyone feels so much better after having a little pamper session.
It is not secret that I have a complete obsession with candles, I have every type of brand you could possibly think of and I always love posting about my favourites. This post has been a long time coming as I actually received these gorgeous travel Neom candles as a gift from my friend India from The Jewel Beauty as part of our Chsitmas goodie boxes last year. They came in a cute box all wrapped up and once opened the gorgeous aromas of the candles filled the air. Since receiving these little beauties Neom have recently gone through a complete re-brand so these may look slightly different to what you might find on the website today. I was planning on saving them for my new rooms once our property developments have completed but I couldn't wait any longer...considering I have waiting since Christmas I thought I had done pretty well haha.
When India included the candles in our Christmas goodie boxes I was so excited to finally be able to give the brand a try. I had always seen them prop up throughout the blogging community and was always so intrigued to give them a try myself. I think it always came down to the fact that I couldn't narrow down which scents I wanted to try as the selection is wonderful...India knows me pretty well so chose out some incredible scents.
A little information on the brand themselves, Neom offer a wide range of home treatments such as candles, reed diffusers, washes, lotions and oils...a wonderful selection right?! Neom products to me always seem so classic and I love how everything is organic combined with having glorious holistic properties due to the high essential oil content in the scents. As a brand they strongly oppose using harsh ingredients and want to be able to offer a beautiful collection of 100% natural fragrances for mind and body, that are free from artificial ingredients, all with therapeutic benefits. Every scent is designed to make you feel good and that is something I completely love about the products they offer.
Neom spent two years expertly twisting together hundreds of oils to find a blend that would help induce the perfects night sleep. When opening the gift package one of the first scents that I noticed was the sweet scent of Lavender which I absolutely love. If you know me personally then you know how much I love my sleep so this candle is perfect to light for a few hours just before bed to create the perfect tranquil aroma to help you dose off. The Tranquillity candle uses the sweet scent of English Lavender coupled with sweet basil and pretty Jasmine to create the perfect blend to relax your senses. The fact that there are large amounts of the purest essential oils in each candles, allows them to work to change your mood as they fill the air with natural goodness. Additionally, how lovely are the names of the scents?! Don't get me wrong I am sold on a product on the way it works but I do get sucked in my the sweet names and fun packaging...guilty as charged haha.
The name and the scent coupled together create the perfect boost that really does inspire you. Sadly, I don't think Neom offer this candle anymore after there recent re-brand, however, it is still one I know I am going to love. I noticed that there 'Real Luxury' scent had similar main ingredients so this could be an alternative option to try. Whereas Tranquillity is a more evening appropriate scent with the sweet Lavender that will drift you off, Inspiration is more of an uplifting day time scent and uses a light and pretty scent that will make you feel inspired, confident and motivated. Violet is paired with Chamomile and Cedarwood to create a beautiful sophisticated floral scent. When I noticed that chamomile was one of the main ingredients I knew I was going to love it straight away. Chamomile is a scent that holds many memories for me and the fact I am always drinking chamomile tea. Inspiration used a mixture of Violet, Chamomile and Cedarwood which gives the candle a sultry, woody-based luxurious scent which is wonderful.
Overall, I am so impressed with these Neom candles and I am looking forward to burning them even more in the coming future. As a blogger who is obsessed with packaging, I think I would have loved the travel candles to come with little boxes...for storage reasons so the candles remain clean and fresh whilst I haven't been using them. Never-the-less, I love the fact I can even have these candle out on display in my room and they fill the air with a gorgeous aroma. Now I have had the opportunity to give some Neom product a try I think this could be the start of a beautiful friendship haha. Also, like with all of my other candles, once the candles are finished I think I will keep the containers and glam them up for my new rooms as cute beauty storage!
