We have been in lockdown for just over a month and the effects of isolation may be affecting your wellbeing in numerous ways.
Many have had to cancel or rearrange weddings and life events, some are having to ride the lockdown alone and the general lack of outdoor activity may be affecting your mood in general.
Scenting your space ensures your environment is reflective of the mood you are seeking or feeling and you can easily change it to assist in your wellbeing.
We carefully select our scents based on our customer feedback, burn and scent throw capability and most importantly their wellbeing benefits.
Here are some of the wellbeing benefits of some of our scents when deciding what candle to burn when scenting your space during a lockdown.
