Few things are as captivating as watching the flame of a burning candle. The rich reds and oranges soften the wax, giving way to the fragrances hidden inside. Candles infuse fragrance into our lives and have the ability to improve our mental wellbeing. Their scents can have a positive effect on our mood, stress level, and can ease us into a more relaxing sleep.
Pick out your favorite candle, strike up a match and relax in its aroma.
