Christmas countdown: the Living Light candle collection

I first became aware of the Living Light candle range several years ago, when it was quite hard to find but well worth the effort. I instantly fell in love with the very gift-able collection, which is sitting pretty here as a high point on my Christmas Countdown for 2012.
For starters Living Light candles are New Zealand-made, as well as all-natural plant, beeswax and soy-based and completely luxurious – clicks all round! And now they are a heck of a lot more accessible too, with a brand-new online shopping website and reportedly stunning new flagship store in Auckland’s Takapuna that I’m yet to poke my nose into.
There are lots of options to choose from if you’re looking for a Christmas gift for the scented candle-lover in your life as well, from the Bell Lantern (crafted from the top of a recycled wine bottle) to the Granite Rose (a beautifully handcrafted candle that burns out through its petals) and the Mini Globe Lantern, which emits a soft glow when the tea light is burning and is also floatable, making it perfect if you love a candlelit bath like me.
As the signature range, their Granite Pillars are long burning, soot-free and have great fragrance throw, and are my pick for on the outdoor Christmas table once the sky starts to dim.
And last but not least - for the eco lover in your life you can’t go past the Living Light New'd range, which combines recycling with sustainability. The New'd Soy in Recycled Wine Bottle boasts 100 per cent soy wax in recycled wine bottles, and is available in four gorgeous fragrances and three shades of recycled glass.
Check out the full range of Living Light candles at or pay a visit to the beautiful new flagship store at 60B Hurstmere Road, Takapuna, Auckland. I know I will be very soon!
