Hey there! so something a little different today but something i hope to show you all regularly! So back in the spring i posted in a beauty group im part of if anyone could recommend orange scented products, because i was finding that scent seemed to help calm my anxiety. I had a load of suggestions, and one of my friends suggested wax melts, especially the wax melt company bramble wax.
So after a lot of debate (i am not good at making choices!) i bit the bullet, and ordered a wax burner, tea lights and a large box of melts from bramble wax. And months down the line i regularly get a big box of wax melts! i am a complete convert to wax melts, and have indeed found that they help my anxiety a lot, i love a lot of the scents but i have a few favourite scents that i fall back on when my brain is really loosing it.
Bramble wax is a small family run company, you can find there etsy shop here and there facebook page here. All of there waxes are soy based, themed around various pop cultures (movies, books, games, music etc) they also do fortnightly menus of limited edition scents. Normal wax shot pots contain around 35g and cost around the £2 mark (some are £2.10) they do some scents in bigger sizes, and custom pies if you really have an all time favourite!
A very handy thing you can do which is what i do is open up a open box, it lasts for a month and it basically means that any orders you make in that month can go into that box up to 2kg (about 36 shot pots). i tend to do this every month, and am always very happy i do so! filling it with refills of my favourites, and limited editions scents as well.
So, has you can see above i had a rather large haul arrive, this was my first haul in a while as with the heat of the summer i haven’t really been burning too much plus they did have to close for a few weeks due to the heat! i am sorry about the not perfect picture, the sun made them look great but isnt obviously very good for them! anyway, haul.

As you can see, a fair few waxes! now as i said i bought them because i was finding smell was helping with my anxiety and i can hands down say these have really helped. My anxiety is a continuous problem im fighting and anything that helps calm me even a little is good, and these have for sure, some of my favourites are leeloo & hundred acre honey and they are my go my head is a mess help scents.
Honestly i couldn’t suggest wax melts enough, and bramble wax is a brilliant brand to go with if you want to get into them! i plan to show you my wax hauls from now on and i hope you enjoy!
