Regardless of the events, seasons or festivals, scented candles are the no-brainers of gifting. Everyone loves to receive candles, even if it means gifting a few to yourself. Candles with scents that connect with you have a way of transferring all of your energy into relaxing your muscles, calming your thoughts and letting yourself move away from the stress of everyday life. There are so many ways to bring candles into your lifestyle. While the classics include the ones you light during a relaxing bath or after a long day’s work, there are a great bunch of options in the market that evoke beautiful memories and moments in your life (more on this later).
It is said that focussing on the flame of a scented candle helps you meditate on days you feel a bit restless. When you experience a time crunch or are just buried in deadlines, the fragrance will actually help you focus. If you have kids in the house, especially babies and toddlers, candles are a great way to help them sleep better. It helps adults sleep well too. Also, candles are deemed positive and they bring out our favourite memories and good energy whenever we light them up.
Here is a list of the most deliciously scented candles we’ve curated for you to pick from.
