The self-care item making people 'feel like they're in a day spa'

Discover how a simple candle can turn your space in to a self-care haven.

Self-care doesn't have to mean lengthy massages or expensive spa treatments. Candle scent is a great way to promote a specific mood, whether it's helping you relax and unwind, or be uplifted and energised.

Different aromas are proven to have an impact on your state of mind, and shoppers have discovered a range of candles that are perfect for stimulating their senses and enjoying some me-time.

"It makes me feel like I'm in a day spa," wrote one blissed-out customer who's been using Caitlin Louise Collection candles in her home. "It creates such a calming ambience."
