Back to Normality!

Back to Normal

And just like that, we are seemingly back to normal. Shops are open, countries are opening up, bars and restaurants are welcoming us back….it’s almost as if Covid never happened. Well that’s not entirely true. Here in the wax world, things are still taking time to return to normal. There are still huge delays in the supply chain, meaning that supplies are taking longer than ever to arrive with suppliers. There is still a glass and wax shortage and some things seem impossible to get hold of.

Christmas Planning

Is it too early to think about Christmas? Not here at Mind Retreat! Pre-orders have already been taken for our sell out advent calendars and our huge Christmas candles. The wax melt production line has already started and the workshop is bursting with autumn and winter fragrances – we haven’t even finished the summer holidays yet! I never thought I would spend my summer preparing for Christmas!!

Gift Ideas

We have some exciting gift ideas lined up for this year, alongside our usual treats and gift sets. We are launching a wider range of Christmas scents this year too. We normally try and stick to 3 or 4 key fragrances, however, feedback from the advent calendars last year shows that you all really do have different tastes when it comes to fragrance! This year we will try to cater for a wider range of scent preferences, so you can all have your homes smelling super festive.

Fragrance Restock

This weekend we have restocked the website after taking a couple of weeks off to spend time with the family. Some old favourites have made a return. Japanese Honeysuckle is finally back in stock! After being discontinued, it has been reformulated and restocked, which is amazing news for those of you who were desperate to see it return. Spa Time is also back in stock following a sell out after it’s launch earlier in the summer.

Make sure you follow our social media pages for updates on new fragrances and all of the exciting products and scents we have coming out over the coming months.


Spring Has Sprung!

Spring Has Sprung!

Spring has certainly arrived at Mind Retreat as testing of our new fragrances is well under way. We have been experimenting with some fresh, zingy fruity fragrances ready to fill your homes with the scent of spring. If you take a look on the website, you will see the addition of Wild Mint, a brand new gorgeous scent that we know you will just love.

Wild Mint

Wild Mint is a mix of crushed mint leaves and white tea. This is a deliciously fresh scent, ideal for burning in the kitchen. As all of our wax melts are on the 3 for £10 offer, you can treat yourself to a couple of packs, or mix and match with your other favourites.


Lighter nights have arrived, milder, drier days are here and the lockdown restrictions will hopefully soon be lifting. To lift your spirits and prepare your mind, try our second new scent – Grapefruit. This is a citrus, zesty, slightly sour fruit scent. Another perfect scent for spring and also on our 3 for £10 deal.

As much as we love our candles for the cosy winter nights, we have to admit we are a huge fan of wax melts during the summer months. They are strong, powerful little cubes of fragrance heaven. With the windows open and the scents flowing throughout your home, wax melts really do come into their own at summer time.

Monthly Subscription Box

Our popular monthly boxes contain 3 different wax melt snap bars in limited edition scents. They are delivered through your door each month, an exciting little treat for yourself or a gift for your friends. Take a look on the website to subscribe today.
