A scented candle turns any evening into something special. Burn one in the bathroom and it becomes a luxury spa. Burn one in the bedroom and it becomes a romantic night away. Burn one in the kitchen to hide kitchen smells and keep things fresh. Use real essential oils and enjoy the benefits of the differing aromas to lift your spirits, or calm and relax.
Add in some pretty herbs and you create a visual delight too – great for a gift idea that everyone would love.
