The Secret To Glowing Skin? This Scented Candle

Scented candles are often more of a winter indulgence, but there are a special few designed to freshen up a hot summer's evening that are worth investing in too.

One to watch out for is from luxury Thai spa brand Janjira - the Therapy Massage Candle, which is loved for its crisp yet exotic lemon and coconut fragrance.


It's main purpose is to lift the spirits and calm the mind, but this candle has another USP - it doubles up as a soothing moisturiser for your skin.

Made with ultra-nourishing ingredients including beeswax, coconut oil and soybean oil, the warm melted wax can be poured into the palms and used to treat particularly dry areas like the cuticles and elbows, or simply as a relaxing massage oil.

It's also a cheaper alternative to booking a hot wax treatment at a spa and the brand tells us Sienna Miller is a big fan of this multi-tasker - just more proof coconut oil is the most popular natural skincare products of the moment.

This oil is also a brilliant conditioner for hair, it can be used to improve oral health and the lauric acid found in the healthy fat in coconuts also has antibacterial properties making it great for boosting the immune system.

Yes, coconut smells amazing in candles, but this stuff's even better news for your body.

The Therapy Massage Candle is available from for £34.
