When practicing self care, I encourage my clients to consider all of their senses when they are creating their self care tool box.
Don’t you just love to walk into spa and have the stress immediately slip away as you breath in soothing scents? Although I regularly burn candles, I am always reminded of the power of aromatherapy when I visit my massage therapist or enter a favorite candle store.
Aurorae Spa Soy Pledge Candles provide the same scent you would expect to find as you walk into a spa room. The smell is not overwhelming and is slight enough to center you as you take a bath, meditate or practice yoga. There is a huge benefit from burning soy candles as they are all natural, not toxic, and do not require chemicals to scent them. On average soy candles burn 50% longer than other candles.
Aurorae provides 12 different scents in their soy candles and each comes with a specific intention to focus upon. To be honest when I opened my package to discover I had received the Pine Soy Candle with the intention of growth I was somewhat unhappy. In the past I have not liked the smell of pine candles as they are often overpowering and make it difficult for me to breath.
However, I realized that receiving the intention of Growth went along with my focus of Thrive (my word of the year). I was pleasantly surprised that the candle scent was light and relaxing and nothing at all like the stronger scents of past candles. In many ways it reminded me of walking through the woods right after a light rainfall. I like the small size as this is a candle you can take from room to room and one that I would travel with to the cabin we regularly stay at.
I’m looking forward to trying a few of the other scents such as Lavender (with and intention of Harmony) and Rose (with an intention of Patience). A typical candle will have 30-15 hours of burn time and going along with the eco-friendly theme, the tin is recyclable.
