Being handmade and ethical is a pretty unbeatable combo. These orange blossom-scented tea lights are hand-poured in Berkshire and, being made of soy wax, they’re 100 percent vegan too. Made by Native Fragrance, they were apparently inspired by a stay at an elegant hotel in Bel Air, in which the rooms were filled by ‘a warm blend of sweet mandarin and fresh blooming orange blossom flowers’. Each tea light burns for about four hours and, thanks to this ripe deal, your home could soon be filled with exotic, LA mansion-like smells for well under a tenner. (Amazon)
