Every month, your candle comes wrapped in a square of fabric.
This month’s fabric felt a little lacking – I think it’s just a cut-up terry cloth towel.
Each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month:
Now, on to the candle!
Socal Candle Co. Oceanside Travel Candle – Value $12
This is a 4-ounce soy candle, with a burn time of 20-25 hours.
The fragrance is a mix of coconut and lime – it feels very beachy! You know how there are some scents where you sniff and immediately think of vacation? This is one of them.
True Lemon/Grapefruit Packets – Extra
OK, I wasn’t too excited for this extra item until I looked up uses for True Lemon. Apparently, it’s a great ingredient to use when cooking to replace salt. (My husband Eric and I are on month 2 of cutting out added sodium from our diets, so this could be a game changer for us!)
And the ingredient list is simple – just citric acid, lemon oil, and lemon juice!
Verdict: VellaBox typically comes right in at cost, and it did again this month. ($12+ value) I think that’s fair, and I love that there is an inexpensive candle box that works with lots of independent candle makers! And I’m LOVING my candle scent this month! (But very much hoping for a classic fall scent for September!)
