Uplifting Candles To Get You Through Winter

There is nothing quite like the unbridled joy of lighting a scented candle on a cold winter evening. Within the light of a wick, you can totally transform a room – and your mood too. You see, certain candles have the power to melt away stress and worries, in turn fending off the January blues.

To awaken the senses, ESPA has blended a trio of pure essential oils – peppermint, eucalyptus and lime – into its Energising Candle, £23. It makes for the ultimate reviving aroma to leave you feeling focused and ready for the day ahead.

For floral fans, the latest candle from much-loved brand Diptyque fills the air with a truly addictive yet graceful scent. Rosa Folia, £44, is a fragrant profusion of wild ivy and Turkish rose, enhanced by a touch of galbanum. Oh, and the packaging is pretty incredible too.

And with Blue Monday looming, what better way to inspire a positive state of mind than via Neom’s Happiness Candle, £45. Its heavenly fragrance of white neroli, mimosa and lemon is awakening, uplifting and energising.

Strike a match and enjoy…
