Neom Organics Intensive Skin Treatment Candle

Neom Organics Treatment candle packaging

I am so excited to write about this product.  I have to confess that I’ve been a massive fan of Neom for several years now.  The company was founded by working mother and former magazine journalist Nicola Elliot, who for a hobby trained as an aromatherapist, and then decided to pursue it full time by launching Neom with business partner Oliver Mennell (the name Neom is a combination of their initials).  If, like me, you are a believer in the powerful therapeutic effects of essential oils then you will probably love this range.  Their bath oils, reed scent diffusers, and candles are dotted all over my house.  And, when I’m stuck for a gift for someone, a gorgeous three wick Neom candle in a scent that I feel will suit them is always just the right size!

Now on to my current squeal-worthy product… Neom recently launched an Intensive Skin Treatment Candle. The candle ‘wax’ is made of Cocoa Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Rapeseed Oil, Soybean Oil, and pure essential oils for fragrance.  It is solid like any regular candle at room temperature, but it has a very low burn point and liquifies quickly.  After burning the candle for 15 or 20 minutes, you pour the warm wax (it isn’t hot, I promise, see me pouring below!) into your hands and then smooth it onto your skin.  This is where the magic happens…

The smell is Heavenly.  Powerful.  AMAZING.  I can’t-stop-sniffing-my-arms amazing.  The-gorgeous-scent-seems-to-go-right-into-my-SOUL amazing.  I wish there were a scratch and sniff area on my blog so you could smell this for yourself.  If the scent alone didn’t have me doing cartwheels, the effectiveness of the treatment would.  I don’t use body lotions on my skin because they rarely work on me, and they are often full of chemicals I’d rather avoid (Instead, I use coconut oil, sesame oil, almond oil, and a few Dr. Hauschka and Weleda body oils).  What I’m impressed with about this product is that the next day, I can still feel it on my skin, which is especially surprising on my always-dry legs.  This is a superb product for me because it ticks all the boxes:  it smells INCREDIBLE, it works better than anything else I’m using, and it is luxuriously natural.

The treatment candle comes in two scents; the one I have is the Real Luxury scent (Jasmine, French Lavender, and Brazilian Rosewood) which is created to be de-stressing, and the other scent, Tranquility (English Lavender, Sweet Basil, and Jasmine) which is meant to be a sleep aid.  They are both gorgeous, but I have a slight preference for the Real Luxury scent over the Tranquility one.

Given my gushing review, I feel I have to add that I am not being compensated by Neom in any way, nor was I given these for a review (Although, Neom, if you’re reading, I’m very open to future freebies 🙂 ).  Like everything on this blog (like it or not) the opinions expressed are 100% my own and ain’t nobody can buy my opinions (that’s my Southern coming out; it usually only happens when I’m tipsy).

So, are you as crazy for aromatherapy and candles as I am?

    That’s a great idea! My aromatherapy candles end up gathering dust but I think I’d use this one.

      Think of it as a body treatment rather than a candle 🙂

    I have only used natural oils on my face for many years now so I’m already a fan. Your scrumptious description of the fragrance has completely sold Neom to me, I’m up for anything that smells Tranquil!

      I’ve burned the regular Tranquility candle in my son’s room since he was born; I find it very calming, and I think he does too!

    Quite an evocative post! I can almost imagine Imperial Roman women enjoying a similarly sybaritic treat…

    I hope I can get here in France:) I mean, it sounds fantastic! I’ve never tried anything like this. I’m a huge fan of aromatherapy on my skin, and in my bath, so that sounds appealing. And the way you described the smell etc, one can really feel it …

      You can check on their website for stockists, or worst case scenario, they ship to France for £10, Abby. If you like aromatherapy, you’ll appreciate the quality of their stuff. xx

    This wax sounds amazing. I must admit I hadn’t heard of it here in the UK. Like you, my legs are always dry. The doctor’s prescribed a cream to rub all over my flaking older skin, which works in the short-term, but soon wears off. The best I’ve tried is olive oil sprinkled with salt for a scrub and moisturize.

    Definitely give this a try, Francene; it is super heavy and moisturising. xx

    Why can’t I have a liquid candle treatment right now??? Not sure how I stumbled on your post, but you certainly inspired me to check out this product. There’s one question I have for you. How you would best describe the Real Luxury scent? I am drawn more to that product as well, but haven’t always been a pure fan of lavender. ( I do LOVE, almond, however 🙂 )

      I’m not always a fan of pure lavender either; I think this one has enough rosewood and jasmine in it to make it more woody and floral, without the risk of smelling like a lavender sachet. The Tranquility scent is definitely more lavender than the Luxury scent. For pure almond scent, I can confidently recommend the Dr Hauskchka Almond Soothing Body Cream. It smells like you’ve just had a swim in pure marzipan! It isn’t quite as hydrating as this candle, but it is the only lotion that I own at this point (more for scent than functionality). Let me know how you get on, Maura xx

    At first I was confused, like how does a candle treat your skin but it sounds absolutely amazing! And the packaging is beautiful so it would look great sitting in my bathroom.

    Great post as usual!
