I think everyone can agree 2020 pretty much sucks. With this in mind, we need a candle that means business. We need one that contains no nasty ingredients and can harness the powers of positivity through its exceptional therapeutic components. Basically, we want something that can clear out all the negativity this year has brought and now replace our space with a scent of refreshingly happy loveliness. Here are the best:
1.Cleanse Away Negativity With Sage. Try: Woodwick Sage & Myrrh Hearthwick Jar Candle, £21.99 (16oz), www.candlesdirect.com
Don’t scoff, but sage has been used for centuries to cleanse negativity and evil, whilst drawing in protection – and it is still being used today. Surely, then it is worth checking out. Sage doesn’t have an elegant flowery scent – but that’s okay, it has a job to do. Also combined are the beautiful and calming aromas of bergamot, lavender, myrrh and sandalwood. Together the notes complement each other and encompass your room in a newly decorated picture of peace and tranquillity. Perfect. Also, the burn time is up to 80 hours. Yes!
2.Pure Thoughts Gratitude Aromatherapy Candle, £16 (100g), www.purethoughts.co.uk
It is important that in order to feel positive, you must first be thankful for the good things in your life. This natural soy candle is the perfect way to help you channel gratitude and become more positive.
Combined in this vegan aromatherapy candle is pure lemongrass, which is well-known for its ability to uplift any mood. Burn time is 18 – 20 hours (going on the week I’ve had I’m going to need to buy at least a dozen more, just to be on the safe side). Whether you wish to meditate or simply banish negativity and boost your mood, you are guaranteed to LOVE this candle.
3.ESPA Positivity Candle, £35 (200g) www.espaskincare.com
Who’s up for a bit of soul upliftment? At a guess, that’s pretty much of all of us. Behold ESPA’s Positivity Candle.
