I absolutely love scented candles and their calming effect. By creating a cozy atmosphere, just its glow can be comforting.
But mind, they are many differences in terms of quality and it is advisable to buy one made of good ingredients as some candles might produce smoke laced with toxins.
I recently came across CALMING PARK scented candles that are produced in Grasse, France, the world capital of perfume. They are made of organic palm wax and paraffin with a 12% perfume concentration. Their scents are absolutely gorgeous!
The classic range is available in 5 different fragrances:
The calming note of cactus, the pure transparece of water flowers and aloe vera on a background of precious woods.
The exotic soothing trip to India, the woody notes of patchouli and cedar mingle with precious incense and myrrh balms.
The cut grass, the leaves of the green fig tree and the gourmand wood notes accompanying the pure and calming bamboo.
The relaxing sandalwood note, , fresh pink berries associated with zesty notes of lime and tangerine spiced with cinnamon bark and clary sage.
SPA DE PROVENCE
The calming scents of the dew from a provencal garden, clarity leaves of green tea and fig, powdery notes of mimosa and heady jasmine on a wooden background of olive and orange leaves.
