How a simple little luxury can enhance your life
Scented candles are an essential for your home. The softness of candlelight aids relaxation and romance and a delicate fragrance completes the recipe for sensual atmosphere. But did you know what swapping your usual candles for soy wax candles could bring added benefits? Here are seven ways that soy wax candles can bring you joy:
A relaxing soak
Immerse yourself in a deep bath drizzled with your favourite bubble bath or bath oil. Surround the bath with aromatic candles and enjoy an indulgent 45-minute soak. Soy candles are clean burning so they won’t leave stains on bathroom walls. And the slow release fragrance means you’ll enjoy your fragrance for longer.
Time to chill
After a long, hard day, put on your favourite tunes, switch off harsh lights, lie back on the couch and surround your living room with your favourite scented soy candles. Keep distractions such as TV and phones turned off and lose yourself in music and fragrance for one perfect hour. Soy candles last 50% longer than paraffin candles so you can rest assured they’ll keep on burning.
If you’re enjoying an early night, or a little romance, candlelight is the best way to create a sensual atmosphere in your bedroom. Light a few soy candles with your favourite scent and enjoy. You don’t have to worry about your partner getting a headache, soy wax do not produce chemicals that cause many users of paraffin wax to complain about headaches.
Dinner party ambience
If you’re having a dinner party, light gourmet soy candles one hour before guests arrive to fill your home with a warm, welcoming scent. In the dining room, opt for a subtle fragrance that complements the food you are serving. An exotic dish may call for a fruity-floral, while a Chinese dish may suit a musky scents. Remember to blow out scented candles before serving food.
A calm, creative working environment
Inject an inspiring atmosphere into your workspace by using citrus scented soy candles, which enhance alertness. Far better for you than gallons of coffee and more conducive to creative thinking. And you don’t need to be distracted by your green conscience – soy candles are made from hydrogenated soybean oil, which is natural, renewable and biodegradable.
A tool for house sales
When it comes to selling your house, you need all the help you can come up with. So de-clutter, put on some fresh coffee, fill the house with fresh flowers and light a few scented soy candles. Your home will be a cacophony of colour and fragrance – working its seductive spell on potential buyers, with soy candles you are sure your potential buyers do not smell a “burnt petrol” smell.
Romance & drama at a wedding reception
A candle lit reception is the ultimate romantic touch for a wedding. Scented soy candles in elegant glass jars dotted around the venue will add sparkle to the occasion. Once the tables have been decorated, light the candles for at least an hour before the guests arrive to fill the room with a romantic scent.
