A scented candle is the perfect way to fill up a room with fragrance while giving off a relaxing glow at the same time. Candles made from natural wax and essential oil emit less toxins into the air and are healthier for your home. Lotus & Lapis Calm White Candle is made with sustainably sourced coconut and rapeseed wax, with a dreamy woody scent of geranium, cedarwood and vetiver. While Hastings Soap Company’s Crystal Botanical Candle is a natural soy candle and comes in a variety of scents including lavender, orange flower and white patchouli.
Remember to always trim your candle wick after each use (down to half an inch) and make sure it burns enough so that the top layer of wax completely melts, so that there isn’t a dip in the middle (known as ‘tunnelling’).
Another home fragrance option is a reed diffuser. These gently emit scent throughout the day and don’t require the constant vigilance of a candle (making them a good option if you have pets or small children at home). The scent you get from a reed diffuser is more subtle than a candle, but unlike candles you can leave them to their own devices. So you can get home from work and instantly walk in to a pleasant-smelling living space. You can dial the fragrance up or down by adding and removing reeds – turning the reeds every few days will make the scent stronger too.
For a relaxing aroma, try Lotis and Lapis Calm Diffuser with a soothing essential oil blend of ylang ylang and patchouli. While Pure Savvy’s Call It A Night Reed Diffuser is perfect to keep by your bed, to help promote good sleeping patterns with its stress-busting scent to help your brain wind down and switch off.
