Scented candles: transform your mood

Scented candles are an easy way to keep the whole house fragrant!

Scented candles are one of my favorite gifts to give… and receive. They make the perfect present for a house warming, hostess or holiday gift, or birthday present.

I use scented candles throughout my home for various effects. Lavender in the bedroom promotes a restful sleep. Citrus or peppermint in the bathroom provides an invigorating way to start my day. And, vanilla in the kitchen adds such a homey feeling.

And, you don’t even need to light them to gain the aromatherapy benefits! A few tucked in drawer, cupboard, or closet will scent the entire space as well as a sachet. (I keep cinnamon candles in the drawer of my kitchen island, and my kitchen always smells vaguely of fresh baked Snickerdoodles!)

Recently, I discovered homegrown candle company based out of Little Rock, Arkansas called Mail a Candle. And, it instantly became a new favorite! The folks at Mail a Candle are professional candle makers and pour all of their candles by hand. These votive candles are even burning, long burning (14-16 hours) and full of fragrance.

A few of my top choices for votive candles include:

Blue Water. These candles bring the fresh invigorating aroma of spring to your home.  A soft, clean fragrance. (24 candles, $36)

Black Amber. This is a musky, sultry scent with sandalwood back notes. ($24 candles, $15)

Tea Party. These candles have an uplifting scent that include herbal green tea and crisp, fresh citrus. (24 candles, $36)

Although these are my personal picks, the Mail a Candle online shop has so many interesting choices! From Grapefruit, to Red Mulberry, to Dickens Christmas, you are sure to find something you love.

And, the folks at Mail a Candle recognize that fragrance preference is very personal. So, they offer a 100% money back guarantee with no hassles. There’s even free shipping!

To see the entire line, visit Mail a Candle. (Remember, Christmas is only 141 days, 9 hours, and 37 minutes away!)
