There’s a reason that candles are one of the most popular item to give as gifts – because everyone loves them. Here are 4 ways you can use candles in your home.
When it comes to gift giving for holidays, birthdays, or really anytime, candles are often one of my go-to’s. Everyone loves a pretty candle and no matter the situation, they’re useful. But in addition to just being pretty, candles can serve some great purposes around a home. Today I’m sharing 4 ways you can use candles in your home.
I admit, I’m totally guilty of not burning some candles because I want them to last forever because their container is so pretty. Using candles as decor in a home is an easy way to use them, especially when you have beautiful glass jars like these from Chesapeake Bay Candle.
I’m loving all the colors of the frosted glass in the Mind & Body Collection. Each candle not only comes with a purposeful scent, but also a purposeful colored jar to continue the ambiance of the theme. The soft colored frosted jars also allow the light of the flame to shine through when the candles are burning – making them an even more beautiful home decoration.
This simplicity + hope Coffee Table Jar Candle inspires simplicity and hope with it’s Mint Basil fragrance that elevates spirits in it’s simplicity. Each of the Chesapeake Bay Mind & Body candles contain natural essential oils and a soy wax blend which delivers a clean burning candle that looks as pretty unlit as it looks lit, especially thanks to the natural wooden lid.
The candles not only make beautiful gifts because they’re just that, but also because they’ll look beautifully in any home decor.
A flickering candle always evokes relaxation from me, but especially when they evoke feelings of balance as does the balance + harmony Large Jar Candle from the Mind & Body Collection. It’s Waterlily Pear fragrance contains Orange essential oil and is my favorite to burn when I’m taking some time to myself for yoga to start my mornings more centered.
Besides my morning meditation time, I also love to light a candle when I read late in the evening. I’m telling you, there’s just something so relaxing about the flickering flame.
My favorite fragrance for these times is the Oak Moss Amber in the confidence + freedom Large Jar Candle. That might seem like a surprising choice to wind down with but the hints of lavender in the fragrance make it so perfect for pairing with a book.
While I doubt the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of candles is motivation, it should!
Sometimes I have such a hard time getting motivated, especially when the weather outside is so cold and gloomy like it has been for the past few weeks here in East Tennessee. When that’s the case, I just want to lay in bed wrapped up in a blanket. But alas, there’s work to be done and thank goodness for the focus + patience Medium Jar Candle. I admit, it’s probably the one I burn the most often, because it’s the one I need the most right now!
It’s easy to find moments of wellness and restore my ability to focus with the calming and inspiring notes of black tea, cinnamon bark and cedar, wrapped in smoked birch and musk in this candle from Chesapeake Bay’s Mind & Body collection.
Candles used to be used solely for light sources before they became super fancy and fragrant and you can go back to that any time!
There’s nothing my girls love more than turning off on the lights and eating, reading, and even playing a board game by candlelight. It’s romantic, fun, and a way to slow down and find peace in whatever you’re doing. So not only are those candles on your shelf a beautiful decoration, they can be used as a light source anytime you need it!
While most can appreciate a candle for it’s beauty, it’s good to remember that they can provide so many uses in your home too! You’ll want to be sure to have your favorite scents from Chesapeake Bay Candle on hand when you need motivation, relaxation, or just light!
