The Best Candle For Mums?
I think I may have just found the best candle for mums…ever! I like candles, yes, but not normally enough to get excited over them like this. I have just discovered a new brand called ‘Mummy Loves Organics‘. The brand has not only made me ‘excited’ about candles, but it’s made me want to talk about them to absolutely everyone I know. Especially mums.
Imagine after a long hard day of soothing a crying baby, or battling with a toddler, you get to put your feet up and light a relaxing, delicious smelling candle. You sit back for 30 minutes, sip on a cup of tea, read your book. After half an hour of pure relaxation bliss, you blow out the candle and use the pool of magical massage oil that the candle has melted into, to give your skin a lovely treat and to soothe all of your sore, tired muscles. Not only that, but the candle you have just lit, will also help you with other ailments you might have. Be it morning sickness, insomnia, stress or anxiety. Or maybe you fancy a candle that sparks some romance back into your life post baby?
I tried one of the ‘romance’ candles out for myself recently and possibly had the ‘best’ date night with my partner. If you’re looking for the perfect Valentines gift, or just gift for a Mum, then these are for you.
Mummy Loves Organics
Mummy Loves Organics is a very special brand that creates diffusers, essential oils and candles with a difference. They also have a new special product called ‘Sleepy Feet’. It’s an oil that’s been designed especially to help babies fall asleep. After seeing the raving reviews, it’s something I really wish I had when Evie was a baby.
Mummy Loves Organics was founded by maternity nurse and baby sleep consultant, Claire Alexander in September 2016. Claire has worked for high profile clients for over 30 years, delivering babies for both royalty and celebrities. She has taken her knowledge and experience and applied it to create wonderful pampering products designed specifically with mums, pregnant women and babies in mind.
Claire spent 6 years perfecting each product and scent that she has created. The ‘melting essential oil body candles’ especially, are something both incredible and unique and after reading more about them, I have a feeling you’re going to be raving about them too.
Claire has created a very beautiful, personal brand. I also love that each heart leaf on her ‘Mummy Loves Organics’ logo, represents a premature baby that she has cared for.
So, How Do The Candles Work?
The Mummy Loves Organics essential oil massage candles are all hand poured using the very best organic shea butters and soy wax, along with the purest pregnancy-safe essential oils. Each candle is completely organic and contains absolutely no nasties. They are non-toxic and burn clean due to the 100% cotton wicks.
They are completely safe to light in the home, around both children and pets. The delicious treatment candles have been scientifically formulated so they warm to the perfect temperature for the skin. To use them, you simply light the candle for 30 minutes. Spend time enjoying the wonderful aroma and allow the candle to form a therapeutic pool of oil.
After 30 minutes you can blow out the candle and allow it to cool for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, simply drizzle the wonderful warm scented oils over any part of your body that’s in need of treatment. The perfect luxurious, hydrating experience, which soothes both body and mind.
‘Romance’ Melting Body Candle
As Valentines Day is coming up, we were sent the ‘Romance’ melting body candle to review (you can find it here). Romance, was designed to be both relaxing and romantic. Claire says it’s a perfect ‘Sunday’ evening candle, as it helps you to unwind at the end of a busy weekend.
I have to be completely honest now. We had the BEST date night recently, thanks to this candle. More about that later.
As soon as I opened the beautiful box it was sent in, I was met with the most intense but relaxing smells. This particular candle is a blend of the essential oils of Lime, May Chang and Rosewood. The scent is such a strong combination but despite it’s strength, it’s really not too overpowering in any way.
Claire also calls this sensational body candle the ‘Baby Maker’. It puts you in the mood for romance with the clever combination of essential oils and scents. If you’ve been dreaming of a date night with your loved one, maybe give this candle ago. We decided to make full use of it and arranged a quiet, rare night together after my little one had gone to bed.
Perfect, Romantic Date Night Candle
We did use this candle on a Sunday evening, in an attempt to get ourselves into a relaxed slumber (something that’s so rare for this constantly ‘switched on’ mama). We decided to have a mini date night and I ran a bath. I lit this candle and a few other tea lights, while my fiancee made us both a cup of tea. We then both soaked in the bath, relaxing and chatting for what seemed like an age. It was so lovely to get some much needed ‘us time’ and to catch up. When you lead such busy lives alongside each other, it can be so easy to forget to take time out for yourselves.
The scents of the candle were so relaxing. After a 30+ minute delicious soak, I blew out the candle and we used the remaining liquid to massage our tense shoulders and back. It was absolute bliss. I felt like I’d been whisked away to an exotic spa and I was being completely pampered.
Thanks to the candle, we got some rare precious time together. It’s actually encouraged us both to do this a little bit more often.
Despite the candle burning for 30 minutes, I still have over 3/4’s of it left. I already can’t wait to use it again. The morning after it was so nice to still smell the oils on my skin and the scents of the candle still lingered in the air about our house.
Other ‘Special’ Candles Designed Just For Mums
If ‘romance’ doesn’t seem like your thing though, Claire has created a whole range of scents and oils that have been designed to aid Mums in a whole range of areas. Whether you’re pregnant, a new mum, or you’ve been doing this mum thing for a while now, there is a candle just for you.

‘Sleep’ (Encourages Calm) – This candle sounds so wonderful. Not only does it calm your mind and promote sleep, but the oils in this particular candle are really helpful for eczema and psoriasis.

Retreat will help to balance your mind, body and soul by helping to ease stress, insomnia and depression – all problems related to pregnancy and new motherhood. I wish I had this candle after I had Evie.

My New Favourite Candle Brand
I would really love to try the ‘Beautiful’ candle next. I’m really struggling to sleep at the moment, so anything that helps with fatigue and stress sounds amazing. I have a feeling that I’m going to get through the whole range at some point. Especially with our plans to extend our family in the future! I also wish I’d discovered ‘Breathe’ when I had morning sickness with Evie and ‘Retreat’ when I experienced PND.
A new product I’m equally excited for is the new ‘Pulse Scents’ range, which is coming soon. The ‘Pulse Scents’ are handbag sized pure essential oils, specifically created to help with hormone balancing, anxiety, morning sickness and insomnia – perfect for when you need a little pick up. They contain the same essential oils as the candles, but are made with watermelon oil. As someone who suffers from bad bought of anxiety, I think these would really come in handy. What do you think?
You can find out more about them and the rest of Claire’s products on the Mummy Loves Organics website.
