HoYo Botanicals haul + giveaway!

Whilst promoting our blog, I was aware that I have a few friends who work in the creative industries. Amanda Muddimer has recently set up her own candle and skincare company called HoYo Botanicals. She makes and sells eco-friendly soy candles made with 100% natural soy wax, a range of olive soaps made with organic olive oil from the Qadisha Valley (UNESCO World Heritage Site) in the Lebanon, as well as a range of other goodies.

I asked Amanda if she would be happy for me to purchase some items in order to review them. She offered to gift me a hand salve instead, but the more I looked at her website, the more I realised her products were my vibe and the more I wanted! I ended up ordering a few items and she hand delivered them to me the following day, along with the promised hand salve plus a couple of extra soaps. (Thanks Manda!)

You can watch me reveal the haul on our first-ever ‘on camera’ YouTube video where there is a giveaway (UK only) which is free to enter. The rules are listed in the video description.

The soy wax candles are presented in jute bags.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, HoYo means ‘hug’ in Japanese.

Please visit HoYo Botanicals to discover the whole range (there is currently a sale on!) and help support a North Devon business. I’m really looking forward to fully testing these products, so as yet I can’t give a full opinion on them, but they sure look and smell great!

Success! You're on the list.
