Zakiyah Candles: Review + Giveaway!

**SPONSORED BY Zakiyah Candles**

Lighting candles throughout my apartment is one of my favorite ways to stay warm during the chilling Boston weather. Coming home from work and stepping into a room that ACTUALLY smells like pumpkin spice (and everything nice) is one of the highlights of the winter. Your home will start to smell like home. There's nothing better than feeling *extra* cozy at home ESPECIALLY during the holiday season. My goal was to discover the BEST candles and I am sharing one of the best CANDLE SHOPS of 2016: Zakiyah Candles. Here's Why:

#1 Scent-sationally Strong

Using 100% soy wax, Zakiyah creates her candles completely naturally rather than manufacturing them in a factory. All candles are hand-poured by Zakiyah and scents are created with essential oils. The scents carry natural tones rather than artificial tones. For instance, the Pumpkin Candle smells reminiscent to actual pumpkin pie, rather than artificial pumpkin scents that commonly populate the shelves of stores. If you want a candle with a naturally delicious aroma, rather than a falsified one, definitely look into Zakiyah Candles.

#2 Quality Consistent With ALL Scents

Some candle companies AKA one-trick-ponies, have 1-2 high quality scents while the rest of the collection fails to reach that level of quality. Thankfully, this is ABSOLUTELY NOT the case with Zakiyah Candles. I received three scents to test the consistency of quality. Two scents were food-fragrances both vanilla and pumpkin while Love Spice consists of floral and spice notes. Surprisingly, Love Spice had a strength in quality comparable to Pumpkin and Vanilla. I lit the candles in my bedroom for the same duration of time, at different periods, to compare the lasting nature of the scents. Each scent remained, even when the candle was NOT lit. Everyday that I lit a Zakiyah Candle, I came home to amazing aromas that automatically put me at peace and comfort, after a long day of work.

#3 Options Galore

Zakiyah Candles offers a wide range of scents including:

  • Love Spell
  • Gardenia
  • Lavender
  • Vanilla Cinnamon
  • Chai
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla
  • Pumpkin and Pumpkin Spice
  • Apple Spice
  • Sandal Wood
  • Nag Champa
  • Frankincense and Myrrh
Zakiyah Candles come in two DIFFERENT types and sizes: Apothecary Jars and Tin Cans. The Tin Can Soy Candles have one wick while the Apothecary Jars have two wicks. The Apothecary Jars are larger than the Tin Cans so they burn longer than the Tin Cans. Thus, Apothecary Jars are priced slightly higher than Tin Cans, but there is NO difference in overall quality

#4 "Smell The Love, Feel The Love"

When you inhale a nice aroma like your mother's cookies in the oven or a Pumpkin Candle, positive emotions fill your body and soul. The smell of a Zakiyah Candle causes a change in your mindset, in your atmosphere, and your overall day. A huge part of my routine involves stepping into my bedroom after work and lighting one of my candles. The scent fills the room and puts me in a peaceful state of mind that prepares me for sleep. Even on stressful days, smelling the scent, whether Pumpkin or Vanilla or Love Spice, boosts my mood and brings me comfort. Theses candles are made with love and positive vibes and you can truly notice that in the quality of the scents and the impact that they have on your well-being.
