Diwali, a yearly five-day Hindu festival of lights, takes place this week in celebration of the victory of good, virtue of wisdom and anticipation of hope. Inspired by this illuminating and inspiring tradition, Rituals have introduced their new Diwali Winter collection which is designed to light up and ‘purify body and mind with the mesmerising fragrance of Indian spices.’ I love to see something different on the high street, especially when it celebrates different cultures and inspirations; Rituals have an incredible story and are inspired by so many different scents and spices, making this a natural progression for the brand. The collection includes a ‘Diwali Delight’ foaming shower foam (One of Rituals’ most iconic products,) that offers the scent of patchouli and cardamom for an awakening and energising morning experience. I love the lightness and the opulent texture the foam provides, ensuring a rich experience that leaves your body feeling pampered.
There’s also a ‘Sacred Fire’ candle that includes white patchouli and cedar wood for a spicy, slightly festive scent that’s perfect for Autumnal evenings. It comes housed in a dark red glass pot and the berry shade of wax melts to leave a lingering sense of comfort in every room. The Rituals candles provide incredible value for money, offering a beautifully packaged product that smells delicious and costs only half the amount of similar brands – £19.50 is a small price to pay for something so stunning. The candle would make a fab addition to any home now the nights are drawing in and getting chillier, especially as the spicy scent is reminiscent of Christmas. I love what Rituals have done with this mini collection and hope to see many more celebrations of other cultures in the future too. What do you think of this Diwali duo?
The Diwali Winter Limited Edition Collection is available now, in store and online (although it’s sold out online!) priced £8.50 for the Shower Gel and £19.50 for the candle.
