TIME-AWAY TREATS For me, travel candles are a must – they make any hotel room instantly more relaxed. The 55ml candles in the Soy Lites Travel Lites Gift Pack, R180 for three, have a cinnamon-citrus and organic-lavender aroma. I always pack mine in the centre of my case, in a jersey, just to keep them safe.
