I switched from regular candles to soy candles about a year ago as I wanted to be more environmentally friendly plus I’d read a few scare stories about buying cheap candles and their potential health risks.
My favourite place to light candles is in the bath, there is nothing better than going into a candle lit bathroom after a long day!
The flicker of soft light always soothes and relaxes me within seconds, easing away any stresses.
The Upcircle soy candle smells lush, made with used chai tea spices and hand poured in London.

Midz Top Tip
To avoid your candle from tunnelling, the first time you light your candle allow the wax to melt fully, reaching the edges of the glass jar.
It is thought candles were invented by the Egyptians 5,000 years ago!
Upcircle have done phenomenally well over the last 5 years, they have taken eco skincare to another level. I have followed them for a number of years and watched their business grow from strength to strength.
Meet William & Anna the brother and sister team who launched Upcircle in 2015 or Optiat as it was formally known.
After a conversation about used coffee grounds they realised just how much was going to landfill, this prompted to do something about it!
Wanting to repurpose those coffee grounds they started collecting them from just one London coffee shop, as they have grown so has the number of coffee houses they now collect from!
Each product in the Upcircle range has been rescued or repurposed from other industries, it’s recycling at its finest!
