Just like your morning coffee, we all have our favourite candles. No two candles are the same. You might be attracted to one for the healing properties of its essential oils, or the scent might have you burning them every day. When you’re shopping for gift candles for sale in Singapore online, it can feel a little different.
While shopping online comes with its perk, it creates a different experience when buying candles. We’re sharing the things you should consider when choosing the perfect candle for you. At Ambiroma, we’re the home of natural scented candles in Singapore. Our candle gift sets and individual candles are the ultimate way to add a touch of ‘hygge’ to your home.
- Soy vs. Paraffin vs. Beeswax
While it’s easy to get caught up in the scent of your candle, the type of wax it’s made with is just as important. The wax will determine the type of burn that you get from the candle, as well as how sustainable the candle is.
At Ambiroma, our candles are made using 100% soy wax that is natural and renewable. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly candle, soy wax should be top of your list. It’s easy to remove the last bits of wax to repurpose the container once you’re finished. Soy wax also gives you a clean burn for your candle.
Other popular types of candle wax include paraffin and beeswax. The issue with paraffin wax is that it produces more soot, while beeswax adds a honey aroma to your candle set.
- Burning time
One thing you’ll notice in the description for candles – or on their boxes – is their burning time. This figure will give you an estimate of the total burning time you can expect to get from your candle. We recommend avoiding burning candles for longer than 4 hours at a time, but you will see candles with a longer total burning time than this.
Some luxury candles can offer you up to 60 hours or more of burning time. You’ll want to think about how you intend to use your candle, whether it’s for daily use or with your weekly bath.
- The scent
Candles are famous for their wellness benefits. They’re not just a decoration for your home or a way to add a little atmosphere. Whether you’re looking to boost your productivity or get a good night’s sleep, a candle can be the answer to all your wellness needs.
The scent you choose will determine the wellness benefits you can get from your candle. As one of the leading providers of essential oil candles in Singapore, we focus on nature-inspired scents that will help you energise and de-stress.
Lavender promotes relaxation and can tackle insomnia, while citrus clove can help ease headaches. We love using our lemongrass sage candle as a natural mood booster. Our rose sandalwood and ylang cedarwood candles are the perfect choices for light for the ultimate self-care day
