Creating a cosy nook might be reason enough to light a candle and snuggle up on the sofa as we head into Autumn. It's our favourite season when the leaves change colour, the light is softer, and nature puts on its spectacular show.
The scent and glow from candles can lift our mood, and certain smells and fragrances easily trigger specific memories and emotions. Whether you're feeling down, had a busy day or need some inspiration, lighting a candle can make you feel better, and certain fragrances will help relax, soothe and calm the mind.
The flicker of a candle flame can be as meditative as a few well-timed deep breaths.
Candles have been around for thousands of years and have historically been used in religious rituals and ceremonies. Today's fragrant candles are used in our homes and Spa's to help create a beautiful sensory space for us to meditate, relax, or change the mood depending on which fragrance we've chosen.
Lighting a candle or two when you're completing your evening skin-care routine or taking a bath allows you to focus on the time you've put aside for self-care. The scent of a fragrant candle helps with mindfulness.
We spend so much of our day and evenings hooked up to television or technology that the constant blue light that emits from iPads or mobiles can seriously disrupt sleep patterns.
Try lighting a candle to help reset your natural sleep rhythm. Lavender is the perfect herb for encouraging relaxation, whether in a candle, pillow spray or diffuser.
Bergamot is another delicious fragrance with a calming aroma. This lovely uplifting scent - spicy with subtle floral notes; is perfect for home-spa treats.
Cedarwood and Jasmine candles fill your home with an exquisite scent that's earthy & woody and complemented by Jasmine's fresh & floral notes.
Candles have come a long way since their initial use. Today, they are used to celebrate different occasions, create a romantic mood, soothe the senses, and add a touch of glamour to home decor.

All our candles are made from eco-friendly soy wax and gently fragranced with luxury fragrance oils. Each with a silver dust lid, our candles are perfect as a treat or for gifting.
To obtain the best results, trim the cotton wick to 5mm before lighting.
Burn for 2-4 hours, allowing the wax to melt evenly and avoid tunnelling.
Always snuff out the candle and allow it to cool before replacing the lid.
