A decorative piece that we feel is of absolute necessity within our living spaces for all things self care related– candles. There is a strong association between smells and our mood as smells can trigger memories. So with the simple act of incorporating a candle into our self care routine, we can be transported to a happy state of mind by filling our heads with thoughts regarding those fond memories. It’s the closest thing we have to a time machine when we are stuck cooped up in doors, giving us further reason to invest in these. While we definitely have our fair share of budget friendly candles from our local stores, we have taken the time to put together a list of four brands that we are obsessed with that are splurge worthy in our opinion, that’ll get the job done on any self care Sunday!
