What do you love most about summer? Those delicious barbecues? Ice cream on the beach? Or perhaps the beautiful blooming flowers and vibrant landscapes are more your thing… Whatever features in your summer, we’re pretty sure you’ll be spending some of your time savouring the scents and flavours of mandarin, apricot and peach. From munching juicy mandarins out on the lawn to tucking into peach cobblers, there’s a lot to love about these fruits – which is why we’ve feature them in our scented candle collection.

The benefits of our fruity summer scents

Mandarin Oil

This zesty oil comes with many health benefits. It can be used as an antiseptic, antispasmodic and digestive aid. It’s also great for relaxation and can function as a sedative – which is great for those who struggle to unwind and sleep. Mandarin oil is also known for its power to help the body de-stress and unwind.

Apricot Oil

Apricot makes a great base for our scented candles, enabling them to deliver their fantastic de-stressing function. When used in its oil form, it’s also great for the hair and skin, providing that much-needed nourishment we all need in the summer months. Apricot oil has also been praised for its anti-aging, anti-bacterial and antioxidant benefits.

Peach Oil

Peach is one of our favourites to include in our summer scents. It’s bright and delicate and does a great job at reducing stress levels and anxiety in the body, while boosting the immune system at the same time. Could you ask for anything more?! It also helps to maintain good vision and skin, as well as healthy bones and teeth – making it our top summer scent.
