Welcome Back to That’s What Pea Said… Have you checked out my recent post: My Week In Pictures 002. You may, or may not be aware that earlier this year I launched a new business: Aventurine Dreams… Today I wanted to take this opportunity to share our biggest and most impactful candle: Buzz Off
I’m a stong believer in the importance of ethical and clean burning candles, as candles which contain toxic ingredients can be particularly damaging to our respiritory systems and to our homes and decor… This is something I experienced first hand!
I’m super excited to share with you our beautiful 400g ‘Buzz Off’ wood-wick, soy wax garden candles. These candles have been consciously curated to include a beautiful blend of 100% pure essential oils which smell delightful to humans, but to bugs not so much… Legally, we can’t advertise them as bug repellant, however I can share from my own experience these are an effective and enjoyable detterant.
Over the next few weeks, I will be introducing the other additions to our beautiful collections and I hope you’ll love using them as much as we love making them. Each candle is hand poured with magical intent & lots of love ♡

These beautiful candles are scented with Citronella, Lemongrass and Peppermint. Due to the potent nature of citronella it is advised that you don’t burn these candles indoors as they can irritate your eyes. I do occassionally burn one on the windowsill, but I would suggest using your judgement…
All of our candles are made using 100% Pure Soy Wax and Buzz Off are fragranced using 100% pure essential oils… If you’re not sure why you should choose soy wax, here are some simple reasons why:
♡ Soy wax burns cleaner and has no pollutants
♡ Soy wax is both biodegradable and water soluable
♡ Soy wax is made from soybeans which are a natural and renewable source
♡ Soy wax burns with zero carbon soot, unlike petroleum
♡ Soy wax burns 30-50% longer than traditional paraffin wax candles
We have also chosen to use wood wicks as they have a much cleaner and balanced burn. It is advisable to burn your candle across the top during the first burn to ensure an even burn and prevent pooling from occuring. If pooling occurs, it’s not the end of the world – however this will potentially change the asthetic of your candle which may or may not be an issue for you. Once again, this is purely advisable – you do you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my post! You can follow Adventurine Dreams on Instagram where we are in the process of uploading photographs of all our current candles and melts. If you have any questions or would like to place an order, please reach out in the comments below ♡
