Busy bee candles


Over the last few months I have started to really enjoy burning candles, but always seem to get frustrated that the scent doesn't seem to last very long and that I very quickly find that I can no longer smell them. During a recent #bbloggers chat over on Twitter, Gemma from Button's Blog told me about Busy Bee' Candles and how much she liked their wax tarts and so I quickly had a look around on their website and decided to make an order.


Postage from the website is £3.99 and each wax tart is £1.25. They each come individually wrapped in little sealed bags with cute little stickers with the name of the scent on. They arrived very securely packaged, wrapped up in little bundles of bubble wrap. Even though they are completely sealed, you can still really smell them through the little bags. 

The tarts I decided to pick up were: mint choc shock, rum & raisen, cinnamon sticks, cinnamon buns, black cherry, ameretto nog, pink lemonade, gingerbread, lush liquorice, peppermint kisses, sherbet lemon and ginger apple. They also included 'vanilla dream' - I'm not always too fond of vanilla scented things and this wouldn't have been one I would have picked but after smelling it, I think it may become one of my favourites! I also picked up a cute mint coloured wax burner from Sainsburys and some unscented tea lights from Tesco.

I've currently had 'pink lemonade' melting for around two hours and the scent is still very strong and fills the room really nicely. So far I am very pleased with this company!


Wax tarts: Busy bee candles £1.25. Wax burner: Sainsburys £3.50. Tea lights: Tesco £2.00 for 100.

Have you ever tried this company? Which scents would you like to pick up?

  1. I haven't tried these, I normally use yankee candle wax tarts and find them AMAZING! You bought so many, I definitely might have to try these as some of them sound lovely!

    1. I thought since I'm going to be paying £4 for the postage, I would pick up a few and then I can see which one I like and which ones I don't :)

    1. I headed straight for Sainsburys when I decided to get one, they have a pretty good selection of candles and candle related stuff!

    I love burning candles too, I have a Daisy one that i bought from Tesco that smells gorgeously floral at the moment that is in a small glass bowl and it was only 80p!

    I've made a note of this website, great post!

    1. I've found the Daisy ones to burn a lot better than the Air Wick ones, for example. I was really impressed with them, especially since they are so cheap! :)
