At Home Pampering
- Light Them UpYou probably have scented candles lying around or displayed in your home. If you’re one of those people who are not into scented candles and you have received them as a gift, you probably did not know what you’re going to do with them and just left them untouched and unused. Well now is the time to take them out of the box and light them up.Set up a relaxing mood in your room with the help of scented candles. If you don’t have scented candles, you can easily get them in stores and they come with very affordable prices. Choose scents that are calming such as lavender. It is best to pick soy or coconut wax-based candles as they produce a cleaner burn and one that is not harmful when inhaled.
