The Best Candles For Mood Enhancement

The Best Candles For Mood Enhancement

It’s the season of blossoming flowers and new beginnings but we all still need a little mood boost every now and again. So we just had to try out the best candles in the market for mood enhancement and it seems like the businesswomen of Yorkshire are leading the way!

Happiness Scented Candle, £45

Neom candles, created by Yorkshire based Nicola Elliott, not only smell wonderful but have wellbeing benefits too. This is where their ‘Scent to Make Your Happy Range’ comes in, which has been specifically developed to boost your mood and balance your emotions.

Neom said:

 Happiness is a journey, not a destination

Notes of neroli, mimosa and lemon are combined with gorgeous essential oils. I loved that this scent was not overpowering and even before it was lit, it filled the room with an incredible fragrance. This candle was shortlisted for the 2016 award for the best aromatherapy product and it’s definitely a winner for us. They even have a cute handbag sized mood lifting treatment with the same scent, £8.

Happy Lime and Black Pepper Mood Candle, £48

Created by Yorkshire businesswomen Fiona Carr and Deborah Wilson, The Harrogate Candle Companies’s Happy range is packed with zesty notes that burst through the wrapping paper before you even open it. The packaging is just as gorgeous as the vibrant scents of limes and warming black pepper oil. Spicy and invigorating, we can’t get enough of this candle and its benefits. Fiona Carr, Director Harrogate Candle Company said:

A candle is simply a candle: it’s what you do when it’s lit that counts

So put your feet up, relax and let the aromatic fragrances surround you!
