Updated: Jan 5, 2021

Candles and wax melts are a great addition to any home. While many people love burning candles and wax melts for the scent, the feel, or to add a relaxing touch during their weekly self-care session, there are many other benefits that candles can provide. Candles are generally viewed as an aesthetic addition to a home, more decor than anything useful. However, burning candles and wax melts is providing you much more than a beautiful scent, here are the scents that we recommend for boosting your productivity, mood and more:

1. Lemon (Found in our Sparkling Lemon Candles and Wax Melts).

3. Jasmine (found in our Night Blooming Jasmine Candles and Melts) Like lavender, jasmine it is also used to calm nerves, but this oil is also commonly used as an anti-depressant because of its uplifting capabilities that produce a feeling of confidence, optimism and revitalised energy.
