One of the things I've missed is scented candles and having a house filled with beautiful scent, rather than some of the less than pleasant odours that tend to accompany small children. For the last few months, every night after the kids are finally in bed I light up a candle, put my feet up and relax. Here are some of current favourites.
1. dusk Artisan Spiced Vanilla Noir.
I can't go past a vanilla scented candle for the kitchen. This one from dusk has the beautiful vanilla scent, but with a tinge of something just a little more exotic. I like to stick with Vanilla for the Kitchen because it doesn't seem out of place around food. There are a bunch of scientific studies that suggest the smell of Vanilla is a natural appetite suppressant to stop you snacking.
2. MOR Deluxe Marshmallow Soy Candle
This candle smells delicious and the light floral and vanilla smell is very feminine. I use this one in my bedroom and sometimes in the lounge room. It's a lovely subtle scent that lingers after the candle is out which is perfect for rooms where you want to relax or sleep and not be overwhelmed with strong cloying aroma.
3. NATIO Coconut & Lemongrass
I had no idea beauty brand NATIO even made candles. Over Christmas I was at my local pharmacy looking for a moisturiser and stumbled across this candle in amongst the beauty products. This is an ideal scent for the summer months with it's Coconut aroma, the Lemongrass adds that something extra to make it an exotic, tropical scent.
