Bionic Lifestyle: Lorain’s Touch Candles

by Bionic Beauty on 09.Jul.2009 · 4 comments

Like many women, I love candles. They make the house smell nice, function as soft lighting, and are great for hurricane season (yep, us coastal folks are always ready), plus in my house- they even function as entertainment for my Betta fishes!

My new favorite candles? Handmade soy candles from Lorain’s Touch.

Each soy candle lasts forever, retains its original scent and doesn’t spew carcinogens into the air. Those are the standard benefits of Soy Candles. But Lorain’s Touch offers an array of aromatherapy type scents to fuse your home atmosphere further. Her candles come in…

  • Focused – Oatmeal Milk & Honey
  • Happy – Vermont Maple Sugar
  • Cheerful – Bergamont & Coriander
  • Creativity – Blackberry Sage
  • Harmony – Green Tea
  • Compassion – Gardenia Blossoms
  • Strength – Lemongrass
  • Enlightenment – Water Blossom & Ivy
  • Abundance – Amber

I’ve got the Oatmeal Milk and Honey which I love for it’s subtle scent. It doesn’t smell too sweet and burns happily while I focus on writing my articles. Plus like I mentioned above, it’s hilarious when I set it next to one of my many Betta tanks. They are completely absorbed by the flame. Granted, me watching the Bettas does not help with focusing, but it is entertaining.

Lorain’s Touch Candles are all handmade and come with lead free wicks. 2 ounce candles are $3.25, 4 ounce $7.75, the 8 ounce is $15.75. Check them out at

So Bionic Beauties, do you use candles at home? Daily or just for that spa-like atmosphere?

“I love candles,” especially ones from “Voluspa.” I light candles whenever I want to relax, or to lift my spirits up. I enjoy floral, fruity, and sweet scents. I also like refreshing scents, such as lemongrass, tea, and euctalyptus.

Kirsten, I haven’t heard of Voluspa before. Do you get them online or a special store? /heads off to Google for research…/

You and I like the same scents I think from here and on our chats! I LOVE tea, lemongrass, eucalyptus, tea tree, etc.

Speaking of… You might REALLY like Marc Jacobs new body sprays/perfumes. They are by Coty- I love the Lemon and Rain one. It’s not citrusy lemon at all, much more lemongrass. I’ll get pictures of mine up and a review soon. 🙂

Candles really help me get in a positive mood to work from home. I sell over the phone and it can get tedious and frustrating at times. When I get this way I just light a candle in my office. I like to use scents that remind me of special places or people. Soy candles are my favorite and they do last forever. Another way to be eco-friendly.

Cheryl, That’s an excellent tip for working at home people! I know I love to have mine lit while blogging. It helps me focus, relax and drive forward on my articles and projects.
