All about the Hansel And Gretel candle from Bookworm Candles (Plus discount code)

With the Christmas lights down and the scents of the festive season a memory, the first months of the year can feel like a dark and miserable time. I was sent a candle by the lovely people at Bookworm Candles, and it turned out to be just the thing to brighten the dark days. 

Regular readers know how much I love fairy tales, so this was the perfect choice for me. I am always looking for bookish bits and pieces and this candle sits so nicely next to my fairytale collection. 


What do you think of when you think about Hansel and Gretel? For me it is the sweetie house. This candle smells of buttery-biscuits and is sprinkled with hundreds and thousands. It brings to mind those biscuit walls all studded with sweets and decorations. 

The candle is a generous size and it is 100% soy. (Great news to a veggie like me.) The tin is beautifully decorated with images and phrases related to Hansel and Gretel, and I love the ribbon decoration tied around the lid. 

This would make a lovely gift for all your bookish friends.
