There’s something about lighting a candle that instantly transforms the atmosphere. The best scented candles will fulfill your needs whether you’re soaking in the tub and want something calming, working from home and want a fresh and invigorating fix, holding a holiday party and want a festive atmosphere, or snuggling up on the couch with a nice book and want a warm note.
When selecting a Gracie Moon Scents candle, think about not only the aromas you know you’ll enjoy, but also when you’ll want to use it. In July, you might prefer a summer candle with citrus and honey scents over a fall candle with apple, spices, and mahogany scents. You might also discover that vanilla or pine-scented candles are preferable for the summer, while fresh linen scents are perfect for spring or even all year.
It’s also crucial to examine any allergies or sensitivities you may have. Avoid candles with aromas you don’t like, and look for beeswax or soy candles if paraffin wax (which has a heavier scent) bothers you.
Consider how long you want the candle to burn (many varieties have a burn period listed on their website) and how you want the container to look. Some candles come in plain pots, while others can be used as decoration in your home to create a festive touch.
