All Natural Crystal Candle Range and Twin Flame Healing 💕

My loves! I’m back with some new candles. I’m a real sucker for crystals, crystal healing, and all natural products. I wear Amethyst and Rose Quartz around my neck all the time, my meditation room is scattered with Citrine, Amethyst, Tourmaline, Quartz and Turquoise, and I am currently taking a course on crystal healing as well. Crystals are calming and beautiful and really make a difference with ALL THE THINGS. My kids have even taken a keen interest. I decided that because I love my crystals so much, and I LOVE aromatherapy, it just made sense to put the two together and develop some candles that help to heal, look gorgeous, and smell amazing as well. I’ve developed 3 fragrances right now and you can order the first one (11:11) here!

This all natural range uses only the best essential oils and fragrance oils and I’ve included a crystal in each candle. Once you burn it down, you have your very own crystal to use as you like.

First I have ’11:11′ my twin flame candle. This candle promotes love in all its forms, as well as self love and also helps call in your soulmate or twin flame. I personally use it with my twin flame healing meditations when I need to send love, healing, and forgiveness to my twin, and when I want to clear any negative energies and vibrations between us. It’s also a way to help my twin awaken, and to remember who and what they are so they can be the best version of themselves. So they can heal, and be happy and ultimately living their best life. It helps align me to unconditional love in all aspects of my life too.

Lately I’ve been using it to send love and healing to a very toxic person in my life. When I need to remember that the bad vibes they’re sending my way, have nothing to do with me. That I need to focus on my own healing instead of taking on their hatefulness, and regardless of how hurtful and petty they’re being…I can send them love and light, and release all the negativity. Because only I have that power over me 💕

Anyway…the candle is infused with rose musk, Ylang Ylang and geranium, sprinkled with dried rose petals and has a gorgeous Rose Quartz crystal inside the candle. It’s also made with a wooden wick so you get this gorgeous crackling effect when it’s lit!! Sooooo so beautiful. So use this Candle with all the love you can muster, then sprinkle that shit everywhere. Because Spirit knows we need it now more than ever. Just LOVE!! Get rid of the need to be right, and the need to have power over others. Because it’s stupid. Just love my guys. It’s so much nicer, and your life becomes so much calmer too.

Next (although not for sale just yet) I have ‘Nirvana’, this candle is scented with Lavender, and helps to promote calm, balance, peace and sleep. I have included Amethyst crystals as they aid with Depression, and in spirituality growth and contentment. It’s an all encompassing and empowering stone that has SO many benefits. I use this one more when I’m taking a bath. It’s where I can relax, de stress and wash away the worries of my day. I use it with my handmade 100% natural Geode bath bombs, which you can order here!!

‘Happy’ is my Citrine Candle. It’s scented with orange and lemon blossom, bergamot and grapefruit. Citrine represents the Solar Plexus Chakra and provides the user with hope, happiness, courage, and warmth. Citrine is also the crystal used for prosperity and good fortune. And who doesn’t love a little extra cash coming in now and then. Kyle thinks I’m nuts, but I do guided meditations on manifesting wealth…and when he’s worrying about money I tell him ‘I’ve got this, I did my wealth meditation’, he gives me an eye roll, and then I get a big order soon after and he just laughs. It’s all about putting that positive energy out there my guys!! X

That’s all for now, but I’m also working on a range focused more for men. I generally really dislike when products are marketed for men or women only…as I prefer wearing men’s deodorant to women’s and I LOVE the smell of aftershave so this next candle is actually inspired by my manager who asked if I had a more masculine scent, like his favourite aftershaves. So of course I had to see what I could do. So far I have ‘Sauvage’, ‘Invictus’, and ‘Angel’.

I think what I love most about them is the simplicity of the design too. A lovely little Silver tin with a watercolour label, and a crackling wooden wick that just looks so homely . I’ll be lighting up my Sauvage candle so I don’t need to be so weird as to sniff my husbands shirt when he’s on night shift and I’m missing him a little more than usual 😅🙈

Anyway, all these candles will be available to order for Christmas, so please watch this space, subscribe and you’ll always be the first to hear about all my new products.

Thanks my loves, sending you all the love and light I can muster! You ALL deserve it 😘💕

Cake International and Donut Eat Bakery

Hello my loves!! Apparently it’s been 2 months since my last post…and guaranteed, my next blog will be about a week or 2 after this one…when it rains it pours and all that 😉

It’s been pretty hectic here lately. I hate saying that. I prefer calm, but apparently I do chaos much better 😜

I very last minute decided to go to Cake International to get my Donut Eat Bakery brand out there a bit. And when I have my heart set on something…it takes a LOT to change my mind. I’m very strong willed and stubborn in that sense. If I have the vision, I make it happen. No and’s, if’s or but’s about it. And I believe in my product. It’s unique, totally one of a kind, it’s quality and what’s more, they look amazing and smell fantastic! So yeah, I’m beyond excited to get them out for everyone to enjoy 😍

So I booked my table, we managed to get the kids looked after and I booked a little Enterprise Van. I spent hours in the kitchen melting and pouring wax, casting resin and making beautiful candles.

I packed up the van on Thursday, and headed out to Birmingham. My GPS told me 7 hours….I finally arrived after 12. Mostly because of a wrong turn on my part…but also, the M8 was a nightmare…or was it the M6?! I still don’t think I’ll ever figure that out. All I know is the motorway is scary. Especially as I really do not like driving in the dark…on foreign roads, sandwiched between lorries, going 80mph, in lashing rain.

When I finally found my hotel, I started bringing all my boxes in, and realised I left a VERY important box at home. I was gutted. And when you’re exhausted, and starting to doubt yourself and allll the money you’ve spent on your dream…you get a teeny bit overwhelmed. And it felt like my whole world was falling apart. I slept for 3 hours before I had to be up to prepare some things I hadn’t had time to do before I left home. And then I left for the National Exhibition Centre.

The roundabouts in Birmingham are beyond comprehension. I missed the turn off twice so a 6 minute drive from my hotel turned in to a 45 minute journey. At one point, I put my hands firmly on the steering wheel and SCREAMED on the top of my lungs out of sheer frustration.

When I finally made it, I posted a wee message to my Facebook Collaboration group, and within minutes my cake family arrived to rescue me. Vicki and Sarah give THE best hugs and along with some other fantastic gals, they had me all set up and ready to go in no time. Coffee included!! I was so moved and get choked up just thinking about it. They really came through when I was feeling so alone and vulnerable. Thank you ladies. You are amazing 😍

You must go check out their pages. Sarah makes the most BEAUTIFUL wedding cakes at Eat My Muffin Bakery and Vicki from Tiki’s Bakehouse is the Queen of Collaborations. Such a beautiful woman, always taking on so much more than any of us are capable of, for her love of the craft 💕

My beautiful friend Victoria who I met in Ireland and hit it off straight away, came up from London to support me. She came up with her husband and sweet baby boy. I mean, how fantastic is that?! I really am so blessed.

So the first day went ok. But I felt unprepared, and tired, so I think that reflected…a lot. I went back to the hotel that night and slept for 10 hours. So the next morning I was feeling refreshed and so much more optimistic. And I sold much more. People were LOVING my products, and it felt GREAT! I even made it to the event in 10 minutes 🙌🏻 getting those roundabouts sussed 😉

Day 3 was quieter but I got to meet some amazing people, including Claire from http://bombshellbakes.com/ and she did some coffee and tea runs for me too. She also won an award on her cake and she’s only just started in AUGUST?!! Wonderful talent 😍

I even managed to do a wee bit of shopping. And with my Frostinator from Evil Cake Genius, I’m bound to get perfectly sharp edged buttercream cakes like PaddyCakes UK. Erm for real, those edges could cut steel! Such a great guy is Patrick and I’m so delighted to have met him. Check out his stunning work at PaddyCakes.uk

I had to get some sprinkles off my neighbours at Sweetapolita too. Beautiful gals and just so lovely. It’s the Canadian in them ya know 😉

I’m so excited to try the sprinkles on my next cake! 🙌🏻

I added 5 new fragrances to my line too…

Gingerbread

Banana Nut Muffin

Holiday Magic

Apple Cinnamon

Pumpkin Spice

And I can honestly say, I can’t choose a favourite of the 5. They’re all pretty delicious. You can order them HERE!

So, I left for home on Sunday at about 7. I had to stop at a few service stations on the way home just to make sure I didn’t fall asleep at the wheel. I got pretty cosy on my route back, and got a few kips in. Thankfully there were numerous Starbucks’ on the way, and eventually…got a bit weepy when I saw the massive Saltire 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Sign. I was on familiar territory again.

I finally made it home at 10am. Had a wonderful bath, dropped my rental van off, and then picked the kids up from School. I missed them enormously. And I missed their daddy too. So much. I fell asleep that night with the kids at 730….and slept straight through to 7am the next morning. Was it worth it? I think so. Will I do it again? Probably. On my own?! Nope. I will never do that journey alone again. I will say I’m so incredibly proud of myself for doing it. For believing in myself, for knowing that I have it in me. That I’m capable. And that I’m not going to let anything or anyone stand in the way of my dreams. Because life is too short for others to dictate how you live it. So take the chance. Do you. Because I know that I’d regret it if I never tried.

And the connections I made, the people I met. The progress I made. It was all meant to happen. The universe works in mysterious ways. I know it was all part of the plan x

Thanks for reading my loves. I’ll have a new post out shortly. Because there’s so much more to tell you that I just didn’t have time for in this post! And I’ll have Christmas Gift sets up in the next few days so watch this space!!!
