Zing Organics Cinnamon Bark & Austrian Pine Candle


Zing Organics Cinnamon Bark & Austrian Pine Candle

When you think of popular candles the one brand that springs to mind is Yankee Candles. In my world those things are evil. Full of toxins and artificial fragrance, that’s the reason they generate soot on the glass jar and walls. Let me introduce you to Zing Organics*, who specialise in making eco and organic candles. Their candles are free from synthetic waxes, artificial scents or toxic ingredients. Zing kindly sent me a travel candle in Cinnamon Bark & Austrian Pine from the ‘Nude’ collection. 

The candle packaging is eco friendly and has a luxurious feel. As the wax is made from sustainable rapeseed it burns clean with no soot around the glass. I love the fragrance. Cinnamon is a firm favourite for me and the pine gives it a hint of freshness. If you don’t like sugary, cookie scents associated with Yankee Candles, you may favour this. When the candle is burning the scent is light, giving wafts of cinnamon but not overpowering. 

I recommend that people consider switching to a "healthier" candle and Zing Organics is a good place to start. The travel candle (80 ml & 12 hour burn time) pictured above costs £12.50. Other scent are available - Fennel & Silver Fir, Neroli & Lime and Ylang Ylang & Eucalyptus. Have you tried Zing Organics? Do you have a favourite eco-friendly candle? What scents do you enjoy in your home?

  1. I don't burn a lot of candles, but when I do, I use 100% beeswax ones. They don't give off as much of a scent as scented candles, but I love the beeswax smell!

    1. Up until recently only ever burnt a candle to take away cooking smells. The few I have are soya based wax. Interesting about beeswax I will have to have a look around for some.

  2. I know Yankee Candles aren't the greatest but I do love them. I am going to try experimenting with other brands when I've used some of my YC collection up though.......probably be about 2015 time lol

    1. It's a cult product, personally I have a tendency to develop breathing difficulties with highly fragrance products. I think you will get a shock when you switch the aromas are not as strong but will be fresh and natural not artificial. Come back to me in 2015 as I probably will have some more recommendations by then lol x

  3. I've got to admit I did not even consider how toxic some candles are and have gone through lots of Yankee candles, not even thinking about the black soot on the glass. Thanks for this, I would definately like to try Zing and will be switching to more eco friendly, non toxic candles.

    1. I'm glad I can share this with you. It can't be good for our lungs breathing in the synthetic perfumes. It's also better for the environment not using a paraffin wax candle. Let me know if you try Zing or any other eco brand :)

  4. Seems like a great company and the scents sounds amazing, the neroli and lime combination is definitely tempting too! x

    1. Totally agree, I think there are some lovely scents available, I imagine the neroli & lime would be nice citrus fragrance.

    1. There does seem to be a lot of love for Neom but it nice to be able to share other companies out there :)

  6. I hateee the smell of cinnamon haha but the candle itself sounds very interesting! Only really occurred to me recently that some candles might not actually be very good for you haha, I'll need to do some research and compile a list of the 'good' ones! I have a few Yankees and they absolutely stink when you blow them out, whereas my WoodWick one only smells slightly smokey! xx
