Diamond Candles Review & {Giveaway}

by Her Happy Balance on October 2, 2013

Maybe about a month or so ago I noticed that a bunch of my Facebook friends were “liking” Diamond Candles Facebook page. I’d never heard of the company before, so I did my research to see what the new craze was all about, and this is what I learned:

“Diamond Candles are made using soy wax, which is different from the paraffin wax used by most candle makers. Soy wax is natural and made from soy bean plants. Our wicks are coated in soy wax instead of paraffin, because we don’t want to make any compromises.

We love knowing that our candles come straight from the Earth. When they are burned the ingredients evaporate into the air, and eventually those molecules make their way back into the ground again through rain water. It is a complete cycle!” – Diamond Candles Website

And all the soy products used in the making of these candles come from the good ol’ US of A supporting our economy and farmers.

Now the fun part about these candles is that when you burn them, they eventually reveal a small aluminum pouch that contains a ring worth either $10, $100, $1000, or $5000 inside!

I guess I should fess up and say that I have an obsession with candles, wall air fresheners, reed diffusers, etc. I just think certain smells can create a more festive (like pine and mistletoe in December) or calming (like lavender) atmosphere. Plus I’m all about aromatherapy and the good that can come from that.

I was allowed to review one of these candles and I chose the lavender lemon scented candle. I like nice clean smells and this candle did not disappoint! Also, because it was a soy candle it burnt so nice and evenly. This was the first soy candle I had ever burnt and I noticed SUCH a huge difference. The wax stays nice and level and doesn’t make those funky shaped depressions from only melting some of the wax. I’m sure a lot of people don’t care about that, but us type A peoples care. Even candle burning makes me happy. What can I say, I’m a Susie homemaker at heart. One thing that I want to point out is that these candles are a bit pricey, but all soy candles usually are. One of these candles costs $24.95. That being said, it’s a pretty big candle, and I imagine it would burn for a loooong time. I’ve put about 10 hours on mine so far and it doesn’t look like the wax has moved one bit.

Now for my ring….

Diamond Candles Ring

Isn’t it pretty?! I’m sure it’s probably one of the $10 rings, but finding it was like the adult version of a cracker jack, but instead of a plastic whistle, I got some awesome costume jewelry! I’m on board with that.

Thoughts??
What do you think of soy candles?
I’m definitely a fan of their eco-friendliness. I’ve heard they’re better for people with allergies.
What is your favorite scent of candle? My absolute favorite is the smell of mistletoe.

Hahaha, Remember meeting my friend Erika? SHE LOVES THESE THINGS! She has like bazillions of them in her apartment! She loves them so much! I love that they’re earth friendly – I had no idea! Your ring is SUPER adorable and so are all of hers! I love when she wears them (again, she has TONS!). lol!
That scent sounds amazing and that cupcake one looks delightful!
I think the reason Erika keeps buying them is because she wants to get that super pricey ring! So cute. 🙂 Have a lovely day bloggy besty! 🙂

Omg, this is too cool!! I love the idea. I’ve never burned a soy candle, but now I really want to!! I love anything citrus-ee. I hate the candles that smell like gingerbread or birthday cake, or something like that haha. I already have a major sweet tooth, I don’t need extra help in that department 😉

Hi lover!!! This is such a cool give away! I wish I could enter it, haha. But I don’t have any social media anything. Oh well. I love the ring – such a cool idea. Candles and incense are awesome but they’re always soooooo expensive and I just can’t bring myself to buy them unless they’re on sale. I love soy candles though. They used to sell them at a salon where I worked. You could use the wax as lotion after it melted. Yes to mistletoe! And to pine! I want Christmas! Haha. <3 I. Gru

the Lavender Lemon sounds heavenly!!!! That’s my biggest pet peeve about candles (when they don’t seem to last very long)

Davida @ the Healthy Maven October 2, 2013 at 4:43 pm

That’s hilarious that there’s a ring inside!!! I’m a sucker for any food smelling candle 🙂

Jess @ JessieBear What Will You Wear? October 3, 2013 at 10:23 am

THAT’S SO COOL I NEED ONE. I am OBSESSED with candles.

Kristina @ Damn Ten Pounds October 4, 2013 at 12:25 am

You inspired me to bust out my holiday candle collection. It’s still hot in San Diego, so it doesn’t feel like Fall yet. Maybe my candles will help 🙂 And after I burn off these naughty candles, I promise to make the switch. I had no idea there were better alternatives!

Cute ring! I am SO down for that kinda crackerjack prize 🙂

I love soy candles. We started using them exclusively on our boat several years ago because they do not give off the soot of a regular wax candle.

I love the surprise ring! I think that’s a cute idea for guys of how to propose to their loved ones! 🙂

That’s actually exactly how this company started! The idea of putting an engagement ring into a candle 🙂
