Do you also get a headache from chemical smells (such as air 'fresheners' !, itching from nickel and other annoying substances, then read this blog, because I have tips for you.
In the spring I received a scented candle from the Swedish brand Klinta, with the request to test it. I loved the fragrance, garden mint (trädgårdsmyntha). But what I especially liked was that I could also use the candle oil on my skin.
I read on the site that you only need to light the candle and then after a few minutes you can already dip the oil with your finger from the glass, or pour it in your hand. The result is a wonderfully smelling skin cream, which absorbs quickly and works very well.
As you would expect, I have sensitive skin, with an eczema-like nickel rash (metal buttons, for example, are disastrous). I don't want to use a hormone ointment for that and I am certainly not a disciplined 'smearer', but of course I want to get rid of this itching.
The Klinta scented candle test proved to work very well and the irritated spots on my skin disappeared. Meanwhile, I even use the scented candle as a face cream!
Organic scented candles from Klinta
I decided to visit Klinta at a fair in Denmark and had a long talk with Lisa Thrane Stevens (she gets her last name from her English husband; long story…). I was curious about her story, the ingredients and the possibilities of Klinta.
In the photo you can see me sniffing the scents to make a choice from about 40 different scents. Smelling coffee beans now and then appears to neutralize your scent. And here too I noticed that it was no problem to smell all those scents, while entering a perfumery is already a 'no go' for me.
This is undoubtedly because the scented candles from Klinta do not contain any additives, but only natural ingredients.
The candles consist of 96% oil and are completely organic. No parabens, paraffin or other additives. And the scented candles have not been tested on animals ♥.
Use scented candles from Klinta as a massage candle.
Because that is also possible! Watch the short video below. The oil remains lukewarm and is ready for use almost immediately. Enjoy a mild fragrance while your skin and muscles are cared for with the oil from the scented candle.
