You will probably remember Vellabox from my past holiday gift guides, offering health conscious candles via a subscription service that are delivered exclusively to your door each month. The Vellabox Candle Curator has some strict guidelines that she adheres to when choosing candles to place in the box. In order to continue along the same health conscious guidelines the company was built on, they do not place beeswax candles in the box in order to stay as vegan as possible. A lot of what you’ll find in their box are soy, coconut or vegetable based waxes. They do not place paraffin candles in the box nor do they allow lead wicks. When possible, they look for candles scented with 100% essential oils, but will allow for phthalate-free fragrances. A box redesign now features more natural look and artisan style and is made from recycled material from a manufacturer that works to minimize waste throughout the entire product life-cycle.
Vellabox offers three subscription options to fit your budget and your needs.
This Vellabox featured a Kin & Care Fern & Tobacco and a Sugar & Huckleberry candle. I was not sure what I would think about the tobacco scent, but it is nice and woody, very calming. Sugar & Huckleberry has a bright berry scent with the slight sweetness of the cane sugar, a match made in heaven. As always this Vellabox included a little something extra, a Loofah Kitchen Sponge made from 100% luffa gourd. Just allow it to soak and expand in water and scrub your dishes clean. 100% biodegradable, when time to dispose they can be composted. A lot of smaller candles do not have two wicks, but I really like this because it helps them burn more evenly. The candles burned evenly and completely and did a great job of covering a fairly large area for a smaller candle.
