For many of my customers odour control is paramount to their enjoyment of their favourite herbal material and they have tried a myriad of “interesting ways” to mask any odours. I feel their pain and have searched high and low for products to help combat this issue and sell a wide range of goods including the SmokeBuddy, Wild Berry Incense and a variety of candles. 2 types of candles are available with both approaching odours in a different way. Basic candles that work to mask odours via fragrance whilst others work on a molecular level to effectively destroy the odour.
BEAMER CANDLE CO.
Beamer produces candles that fall into either category, odour eliminators as well as the more basic odour maskers. This candle is from their “Smoke Killer Collection’, a range that attacks the actual odour molecules circulating in the air (more on this soon). At the same time a pretty intoxicating scent is also released, providing an extra level of cover. Personally, I love the smell of each and every candle in their range and will be adding more to my range as soon as I can (their range is vast). Lastly, each candle comes in a glass mason jar with a side handle that will make a cool drinking mug when you are done with the candle.
TIP: 90 hours burn time for this candle. 4 hours or less per burn is recommended.
ODOUR NEUTRALISING ENZYMES
This is not your standard nice smelling candle (even though they smell amazing!!) that you would light to mask odour, this candle is so much more than that. Most candles on the market use fragrance (usually artificial) and other chemicals to “mask” odours, these can be harsh/unsafe especially if used repetitively. And let’s be honest they never really remove the odour, just cover it for a period of time. Beamer Smoke Killer Candles DO NOT mask odours but works on a molecular level to break apart chemical bonds of odour molecules. This occurs via natural odour neutralising enzymes and works in the following way:
- Enzymes are attracted to odour molecules in the air.
- Bonds to the chemical compounds effectively breaking them down.
- A new odourless compound is created.
- The odour is gone!
TIP: This candle is made from a Parasoy Blend which is non-toxic, whilst the wick is lead-free.
LET’S TALK RED MOTHER F*#KER
I really wanted to break down the aroma of this amazing candle, but I will admit that I am stumped. As per Beamer the description of Red Mother F*#ker is based upon the classic Blue Mother F*#ker drink (so why is the candle called Red?), so off I went to Google to figure out this drink. Unless I am mistaken (highly probable as I am a herbal girl and stay away from alcohol), it is a cocktail (Citron Vodka, Blue Curacao Liqueur and Sweet and Sour Mix). To be honest when I open the candle and insert my nose I get a sense of Red Raspberries or maybe even a red slushie. A not too sweet but quite nuanced aroma.
Before lighting any candles, you should trim the top of the wick with a pair of scissors. I recommend doing this before each use. This ensures less soot is produced and keeps the glass pristine.
CAUTION: Please never leave any candles unattended or in an area where they can be knocked over. Candle should be placed on a stable heat-safe surface away from any flammable materials/surfaces and not moved whilst lit. Burn within sight and please keep away from children and pets.
