Kiss the Moon Luxury Rose & Frankincense Soya Wax Candle.

Hello Beauties & fellow candle lovers!

In the crazy days of the social media circus so many of us find it almost impossible to stop out minds from racing and being able to switch off so we can sleep, it is hard because when you turn your computer off and reach for the tv controls and the blue light from tv’s, computers, phones, this blue led light is a huge part of keeping us awake on top of the stresses of modern day life.

This is my second Kiss The Moon candle now and they are just fantastic for scenting my bedroom beautifully at bedtime and helping me to switch off. Made with 2 fragrances I absolutely love … Rose which is so soothing, it benefits the mind and the soul. It is mellowing on your mind cutting down stress and it is soothing too, a cup of rosey lee made with rose petals can help with stress, we use it in face oils, face mists and all aspects of Soothing our body and skin, it is also extremely beneficial on the mind too.

“Rose is sent to earth by the gardeners of paradise for empowering the mind, the eye and the spirit.”

Plus a real favourite of mine Frankincense which is renowned for helping to banish negative thoughts, helps balance out the mind clearing space to allow you to get a better nights sleep. It is also a superb healing oil on skin too and has been used for centuries to heal wounds it is very medicinal.

The combination of these 2 powerful natural essential oils in this candle are a real winning combination, the fragrance is addictive, so rich and enticing and truly is good for the soul in so many ways. I also have it in a room mist too haha! Oh and a bedtime hand cream so nourishing at bedtime and as we sleep with out hands close to our faces so as the cream warms the beautiful oils we inhale the wonderful scent again. It is enticingly romantic and beautiful!

So now I get to talk about the glass!! The glass is a stroke of real genius in my opinion because it looks like a very dark navy/black but when your candle is lit you can see the lovely warming, clean, healing yellow flame through the glass, it flickers and dances around the glass and the logo like a big old moon moon dancing in and out of the clouds in the night sky. It is mesmerizing and in my opinion this is what takes this candle to another level.

I find some bedtime candles too bright, I don’t know why, but they can hurt my eyes when I am tired. With this glass I get beautiful blues and purples and some pinks coming from this glass when I am watching it in bed from different angles.
It really is stunning and for that reason along with the heavenly fragrance makes this a real winning candle for me and a scent I will keep going back to because my body and mind love the fragrance too.

Kiss the Moon are an Eco Luxe brand that specialise in sleep products, they have used the best soya wax in this candle and high grade essential oils and it shows. The wax is beautifully creamy and you can see the quality of the oils within the wax.

I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love this candle, the packaging is also exquisite, you just know by look and feel that this is a very special candle!

Hello fellow beauty addicts,

They recognize that everyone is different, has different needs in todays never ending stressful world. For some like me it is pain & anxiety that affects my sleep, for others it is stress, jet lagged or you just cannot switch off.

I can’t get enough of this bath oil from Kiss The Moon, the fragrance of LOVE Rose & Frankincense is utterly heavenly and I can think of no better way to take the day off bathing in a beautiful oil like this it really does help me relax and the scent is so mood lifting, it really is from first smell.

The Rose, Frankincense, Palmarosa, Ylang Ylang fill my bathroom & flat with the soothing essential oils that are so mellow & soothing while coconut oil & Jojoba nourish & hydrate my skin skin.

What I love about this is it is a light oil formula, it does nourish your skin but it doesn’t leave your bath like an oil slick and I much prefer that to a heavier oil.

I also have this in a hand cream which is coming to an end (sob) and will need to get some more because it is the most fabulous night treatment for hands. Super nourishing but again very easily absorbed into the skin and the wonderful scent relaxes and calms the mind to help me get off to sleep.

These products are treatments to help aid sleep and I love them, they are high grade quality oils and all natural too.
All Kiss The Moon’s products are vegan, cruelty free,paraben free, natural,Leaping bunny accredited!

At the moment there is a free LOVE hand cream with every offer, I highly recommend it, truly beautiful and so hydrating & soothing.

Jo Malone Amber & Lavender Bath Oil

Hello fellow beauty lovers ,

I had a massively stressful week last week with the flat beside me being ripped apart and put back together again in a totally new format, walls knocked down, new walls put in, the sheer non stop drilling and racket on 2 sides of me had my teeth rattling it was so bad!


So thank heavens i had this Jo Malone Amber & lavender bath oil for my bath to have lovely relaxing soak in because i really needed it!

It smells amazing with top notes of Petitgrain giving a freshness and a hint of sharp orange, heart note of rich luxurious spicy Lavender which i truly love and adore, finished off with lovely heady warming Amber for a truly heavenly bathing experience.


Being oils i wasn’t expecting any foam but there was a little and once the oil hit the running water and steam whole bathroom transformed into haven of fragrant tranquillity.

This is a masculine scent but to me its very unisex  for bathing, can be used by men or women, for that relaxing bathing experience and after a 20 minute soak in this normality had resumed to my wee flat, the stress was gone, the aches and pains were gone too and i felt so much more relaxed!

The almond, Jojoba seed and Avocado oils left my skin well hydrated and it was lightly scented too with all the wonderful ingredients!


I would love this scent for all over my bed linen, it would be so amazing to get into bed and this relaxing exquisite fragrance wafting all around you as you got into bed .. heaven!

Have you tried Jo Malone Yet? I have tried a few of her fragrances now and they are always in a league of their own, very beautiful with a price tag to match but oh so worth it …

Elemis Quiet Mind Relaxing Bath Elixir

Hi everyone :-),

When i need my head clearing, my fibro pains are bad, or i just  need to regroup, chill and relax, this is the scent i love to relax in!

The heady scents of Eucalyptus, rich and spicy Lavender ,  patchouli, ho wood and shea butter make it an addictive combination that i keep coming back to time and time again, for me its like a treatment for body and mind as it can really help both so much.


I associate this scent with pure relaxation. it really does soothe an achy body and ease a stressed mind, this is one of my products i will not be without, when i finish a bottle….i am always making sure i have another lined up, for me it is pure decadent luxury and it is highly addictive 🙂

Once  capful of this hits the hot water and the aromatic oils  fill not only my bathroom but the whole flat with that wonderful scent , i know it really is going to ease my pains and my mind and hopefully let me get some sort of nights sleep,  the scent just sends me to a happier place …Eucalyptus is really known for clearing the mind and easing it, high grade Lavender oil really has the most wonderful spice kick to it to relax and aid sleep


I have the Temple Balm too which i use on my temples and wrists so i can keep getting a whiff of the scent all night long, it is a pretty powerful head clearer, great to use on a stuffy head, blocked sinuses or a cold even, it a real head clearer!


I olso have the pillow(lol) spray too but i don’t think i can get the pillow spray anymore for some reason *sob*,  which is a shame because as you can tell its a scent i am pretty much hooked on lol, makes your bed linen smell amazing!


Well those are my thoughts for today! What clears your head, relaxes you and helps you to get some sleep over a period of stress ?

Bye for now
