When Hutwoods candles were first brought to our attention, we originally thought about how they’d make a really thoughtful gift for someone. But, as Sydney returns to lockdown due to the global panini, we realised that these candles actually make the perfect iso purchase as they combine two things everyone loves when stuck at home – scented candles and growing plants.
But how can one simple candle do two amazing things? We’re glad you asked. Hutwoods luxury candle range all come with a little paper disk around the wick full of seeds. You remove the paper before lighting the candle, keep it somewhere safe and then when you’re finished with the candle, plant the seeded paper inside the old candle jar with some soil, water and grow your very own herb garden.
Aside from being a cool two-in-one home decor pick, Hutwoods candles are made with 100% soy wax with eco-friendly wood wicks that crackle when they burn, giving the cosy feeling and sound of a wood wire. The wood wicks also offer a more even burn, which means less tunnelling. The luxury range all come in sartorial brushed brass vessels and have an 80+ hour burning time, equalling to a lot of relaxing nights in with this scented candle.
We were both sent the Cedar Leaf & Vanilla Bean wood wick candle to try, and we’ve been cosying up with them throughout this new lockdown period. Offering the aroma of warming cedar and sweet vanilla, this candle has undertones of zesty orange, refreshing peppermint and vibrant musk.
As well as candles, Hutwoods also offers a range of reed diffusers, solid perfumes, homewares (like cute wooden candle holders) and a range of luxurious bath and body products. You can shop Hutwoods at a range of stockists around Australia or at their online store.
