This little package of luxuary from RAWE Sugar Co. could not have arrived at a better time as I hunker down in my tiny flat with my husband and our dog on the instruction of the Government. My biggest concern right now isn’t whether or not my husband and I will have moments of tension. (I’m sure we will, but that’s ok) but rather that our 1 year old dog Loki will stink the place out. For someone who weighs less than 4kg he not only creates a disproportionate amount of chaos around the house, he also farts like a trooper. If anything is going to make lockdown unbearable it’s dog farts.
Founded in West London RAWE Sugar co. make 100% natural soya melts in six exquisite aromatic varieties made from therapeutic grade essential oils designed to destress, uplift and ease emotional imbalances. Perfect for soothing the soul during uncertain time, and covering up the smell of dog with something much (much) nicer.
Unpacking my lovely little delivery from RAWE Sugar Co. I felt like I was really treating myself. Beautifully wrapped, these little jewels of wax smelt amazing even before I’d popped them in my wax burner and as they burned layers of scent diffused into the air at different times, making the whole experience feel really indulgent. They felt like the perfect antidote to a day of chasing the news and wondering when toilet roll became such a hot commodity.
I’ve been big into candles for as long as I can remember (they also cover up dog smells), but what really sets RAWE Sugar Co’s wax melts apart is that they’re so affordable (my taste in scented candles may be a little fancy) and they’re free from the nasty chemicals that some scented candles can produce. When you’re inside all day every day it’s not nice to think that you’re filling your air with nasties just to cover up canine flatulence, so it’s lovely to know I have an option that is a little kinder.
Obviously to use wax melts you need to use a wax burner. I’ve been using a more traditional burner with a tealight, but RAWE Sugar Co.’s wax melts can be used with an electric heater, meaning that they don’t pose any fire risk, which is always reassuring. One thing you should watch out for when using wax melts is spilt wax, please don’t move the burner while it contains melted wax, things will get messy (my husband learnt this the hard way).
RAWE Sugar Co. wax melts are the perfect little treat in an uncertain world when you need a little time to destress, uplift or just find some balance, and at just £14.50 for a box of eight these little jewels are an affordable luxury.
