Is there a better feeling than lighting a scented candle while you take the most relaxing salt bath after a long day or after cleaning the house? Or simply as a self treat? If you feel me, Hulu* got you covered.
Hulu is an independent family business from the UK that makes luxurious soy wax candles, melts, reed diffusers, bath salts and bath bombs. All their products are vegan friendly, carefully sourced for recycleability and from cruelty free suppliers.
They come in different scents, one more exquisite than the other, ranging from traditional fragrances such as vanilla, lavender and peach, to unique combinations like sweet fennel & jojoba, kiwi & apricot, apple pie & custard, Thai lime & mango, and many more! (I’m tempted to give you the full list because they all sound SO GOOD lol).
In my case, I was given three beautiful items: (click on titles to go to their respective product page <3)
FRESH PEACH SOY WAX MELTS
First off, how cute are these?! These heart-shaped soy wax melts will last over an hour each and fill the room with the nicest fresh peach fragrance. What I love about peach is that you feel the sweetness but not in a traditional floral way. The sweetness of peach fragrance is more subtle and shy, yet absolutely captivating.
I mean, who wouldn’t want a cute bag with twelve lovely hearts bringing that outdoor summer feelings to your room? Especially during these times, this would make a wonderful, ten out of ten gift.
LIME, BASIL & MANDARIN SOY WAX CANDLE
I could’ve never thought of such an interesting combination, and man I would’ve been missing a lot. Basil gives such freshness, and I feel like lime is the perfect link that connects the notes of peppery basil with that tropical mandarin.
The candle itself lasts forever (like, I haven’t finished it yet!) and again, the fragrance is perfect for summertime because of its citrusy notes and the garden-fresh basil. I’m totally in love with it. Winner combination.
«NEW YOU» PINK HIMALAYAN SALTS WITH EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OILS
Another unique combination, this time for bath salts, brings together these visually gorgeous pink Himalayan salts with a strong eucalyptus fragrance. That fresh, minty scent of eucalyptus feels ideal for the hottest months.
It is said that Himalayan pink salt is a powerful detoxifier as this ionic salt solution helps to extract the toxins out of your skin and tissues. It penetrates your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and nourished. Also, one study found bathing in warm water for 10 minutes can reduce fatigue, stress, and pain and increase feelings of contentment and emotional health.
On the other hand, Eucalyptus is particularly amazing at clearing toxins, from both the air and our bodies. The minty smell of this plant will also clear your chest and breathe easier.
All in all, this whole set is a 10 out of 10. These hand poured candles and bath salts not only smell beautifully, last for hours and surprise you with clever combinatons, but this set in particular is PERFECT for summertime.
We usually associate candles with Autumn but Hulu proves us wrong and gives us different products suitable for any season. Make sure to check them out and give them a follow on Instagram. This time more than ever we should be supporting small businesses and Hulu totally deserves that.
