Meet my new therapist…SOiL

I have heard of SOiL in the past and had the brand tucked in the recesses of my mind, but I hadn’t visited their site or tried any products before being offered a voucher to try their online store. Since my early blog days when I focused predominantly on natural and organic products I’ve always been on the lookout for any new brands which fall into this category. Even though I’ve branched out I still have a serious soft spot for organic and local brands. Besides being certified organic, SOiL is also animal-friendly (no animal testing!) and supports local communities. It’s one of those heart-warming stories that makes you want to support the brand. 

I ordered what I felt was a variety of products. A burner with soy wax melts (because I have always wanted one), a Coconut Body Wash for myself, and a Treemendous Tea Tree Shampoo for the Moo…because we’re overdue for a Moo Review.

The soy wax melts come in a variety of scents, and I ordered the balancing baobab ones which have sandalwood and rose geranium essential oil. The gift box with ceramic burner and pack of eight wax melts is only R130 and comes beautifully packaged. Replacement wax melts are R50. What really impressed me was that you don’t pay and arm and a leg for the benefit of buying local, organic products. 

The scent of these wax melts is so soothing that I feel like I’m in a spa every time I light it. The scent is also really strong and can fill an entire room – or in fact several rooms. Yankee Candles have nothing on these babies. They also come in Sensual Hibiscus with ylang ylang, patchouli and sweet orange essential oils, and Uplifting Coconut with lemongrass and grapefruit. There are also several other scents to suit every mood. 

I honestly feel that sitting in the room with my balancing wax melts burning is worth about six months of therapy. The power of essential oils shouldn’t be under-estimated. Try it the next time you feel like throwing your flat iron at the closest mirror…it will calm you right down!

I was really impressed with every product I got. The Uplifting Coconut Organic Body Wash is another example of therapy in a bottle…it is fresh, zesty and instantly lifts your mood. It is also creamy and the coconut oil it contains really feel nourishing and moisturising on your skin. So not only does it smell great, it is a really good body wash in general. Each range also includes a bath oil and bath salts (beautifully packaged) as well as a soy candle, body lotion, hand wash and hand lotion.


I really recommend visiting their site if you’re looking for affordable but special gifts, or just want to treat yourself. The online shopping process is simple and easy and delivery is quick.

SOiL has been kind enough to sponsor a R300 voucher for use on their site to a lucky reader.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment letting me know what you would buy if you won, and share this post over which ever platform you prefer. It isn’t mandatory, but if you would like an extra entry you can follow SOiL on Twitter or Facebook. Just let me know in the comments that you have done so, and your twitter name.

Giveaway ends Monday 13th July.

    I’m a sucker for coconut or shea, and Soil does both! So, either way, I’ll be getting my paws on the Coconut Body Wash and their Kenyan Shea Butter! Ooh, and one of their candles. Mmm!

    I thought it would be easy to find something, but there are so many stunning choices! I would defiantly go for a burner and some essential oils, I love how they all have a different function. I would also love the Hibiscus Bath salts, I’m such a sucker for bath salts! Followed on fb and twitter (@Finding_zasha)

    I LOVE SOiL products and have been using them for a number of years now. My absolutely favorite item from them are their soy wax melts (All scents. Have yet to be disappointed with any of their scents I have purchased from them). They smell so divine and make it so ridiculously easy to clean my burner!!

    I am eyeing their electric burner and would love to try out their body products because I have tried those yet. The balancing baobab body products are first on my list to try!

    I am a follower on their Twitter (@FergliciousKate) and on their Facebook (Kate Reynard Ferguson) and tweeted about your competition 🙂
