CT River Candles has exceeded my expectations with this one! They have combined two of my favorite things. Soy candles and and animals. (NOT real animals!) They have a very unique product I’ve never seen before. These are plush stuffed animals, dipped in soy wax.
I know what you are wondering. Why would they do such a thing, and what is the purpose? Right?
Well I’ll tell you this – you do NOT burn these like you would a candle. You don’t even melt them. They arrive in this super cute packaging – clear cellophane bag with raffia bow and a card telling you about your plush wax pet. As soon as you open the bag, the aroma very quickly fills the air with the most incredible scent! They have a lot of different scents you can choose from. I received the adorable little kitty in the Sunwashed Linen scent. It is AMAZING.
So you stand your little plush pet on it’s wooden stand, and the fragrance fills your room. It’s an air freshener! Who would have thought?
This is the adorable little kitty I received:
You can see the wax that hardened all over it. But when you squish it, you can still feel the plush pet under all that wax.
This will freshen your room for about 6 months. After you stop smelling the fragrance, just get a hair dryer and warm up the wax all over it, and let it harden again. It will last about another 2 months after that! So you are getting about 8 months of fragrance! Candles (even soy) do not last nearly that long. They last just so many hours, and when they have burned down, that’s it.
I had received a candle from CT River Candles about 3 years ago (it was Caramelized Pecans scented) and it knocked my socks off. Their candles are top notch! I’m very partial to soy, because it’s so much better for the environment, it’s a natural product, and it lasts so much longer than paraffin.
And quite honestly, I’m just in awe of this product. My little soy wax kitty is sitting on a table across the room and it smells like it’s right in front of me. I can think of so many occasions this would make a great gift for! These would be perfect for kids’ rooms and even nursing homes – to freshen up the smell in the room without the risk of a flame. And then for holidays – Easter (which is coming up very soon!), birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, Christmas, the list is endless! ANYONE who loves candles and animals will appreciate this – or even if it’s just someone who loves making their home smell wonderful and inviting.
