Candles are one of those things I buy myself for self-care. I like my coffee, books, an occasional glass of wine, and my candles. They make me happy. Scented candles are the best, but I’m very picky. They have to be great quality since I use them for aromatherapy.
Candle scents create a mood which is important in self-care. Smell is one of the most important senses and scent can be used to create an environment to uplift your mood or help you find balance.
I love the Chesapeake Bay Mind & Body collection. Mei Xu, the co-owner and CEO of Chesapeake Bay Candle says,
“With the rise of the new technologies our lives have become super organized, but we are not happier. We need to slow down and find time for ourselves. I wanted to design a home fragrance collection that helps people to achieve a state of balance and peace inside, so they can share their joy and energy with others. The Chesapeake Bay Mind & Body collection invites you to pause, to find a moment of stillness and to enjoy the simple pleasure of fragrance.”
One of my favorite candles is the Love + Passion Large Jar Candle, which has a Grapefruit Mango scent. The scent is uplifting and instantly makes me happy! It actually contains natural essential oils of orange and lemon. The soft coral colored frosted jar candles allow the light of the flame to shine through when burning.
Even my husband loves the candles. His favorite is the Focus + Patience Candle which has a Tobacco Cedar scent. It contains the essential oils of birch tar, cedarwood, and patchouli. You can find moments of wellness and restore your ability to focus with the calming and inspiring notes of black tea, cinnamon bark and cedar, wrapped in smoked birch and musk. Nurture you mind and body with good intentions and let this noble earthy fragrance slow down the pace of life and add a sense of patience.
We keep candles in every room of our house, even the kitchen and bathrooms! Coffee table jar candles are perfect for keeping balance in my office and of course on the coffee table in our living room.
The cashmere jasmine scent of the Peace + Tranquility Coffee Table Jar Candle is incredible. The essential oils in it are ylang ylang, lemon, and cedarwood. The scents are fresh smelling with airy notes of lily of the valley and bergamot do not betray the relaxing nature of this fragrant aroma. Escape into the comforting arms of exotic jasmine, cotton blossom and rose as they soften the atmosphere. This peaceful floral combination pleasantly rests of delicate cashmere woods, white musk and sandalwood.
Another fragrance I loved was the cranberry dahlia scent of the Joy + Laughter Coffee Table Jar Candle. It had some of my favorite essential oils – orange peel, lemon, and cedarwood. The fragrance description reads “a blissful fruity top of cassis, cranberry and plum nectar smiles at the crest. Rose and dahlia meet in the middle with pink peppercorn as a note of a full-bodied red wine sings sweetly of past memories and family gatherings. Cedarwood and mahogany ground this fragrance as a touch of spice adds complexity to an overall light and gleeful air.”
The candles from Chesapeake Bay Candle have excellent quality and I’m already looking forward to trying new scents and getting more of the ones I’ve tried. Have you tried any? Let me know what your favorites are so I can try them out.
