5 Reasons You Need More Candles. Spoiler: the benefits are basically endless.

Fragrance. Greenery. De-cluttering. Meet the key ingredients to a calming atmosphere.

Imagine: You’ve had a super long day and all you want to do is get home, kick off your shoes and chill…but you get there and your place just doesn’t give off the right vibe. That’s why we created a guide to help you create a relaxing atmosphere and while we were at it—we added a tip on how to energize it, too (wink emoji).

  1. Try some aromatherapy

    Introducing an aromatherapy fragrance into your routine (and room) is a fab way to help create the feeling of a stress-free ambiance. We recommend taking a peek at Eucalyptus Spearmint—since it’s available in both home fragrance and body care essentials, you can add it wherever you want. Body scrub. Candles. Shower gel. Wallflowers fragrance refills. No matter where you use it, you’ll be glad to have it.

  2. Consider the role of the room
    Think about what you want each spot in the home to accomplish. For example, you’d probably like your home office to feel super productive, but at the same time, you wouldn’t want to use it as a space to unwind. Once you know which room you’d prefer to relax in, it’s time to make it feel extra cozy. The easiest way would be to add a few of your go-to scents around it. Did you know they can actually help bring happy memories to the surface? Light a favorite 3-wick candle

  3. Freshen up your room and declutter

    Having a clean and organized space to chill in is super important…the less mess you have, the easier it can be for you to settle into a relaxed state. Plus, the act of cleaning itself can be pretty therapeutic as well! Once it’s cleaned up, spritz a calming fragrance like Lavender Vanilla—whether you’re using it as an everyday scent or occasional aromatherapy essential, you’ll love this tranquil goodie.

  4. Add some plants and color
    Greenery totally helps to liven up every room and, honestly, when looking at plants, it’s hard not to smile. If you’re not quite ready to be a plant parent, add a few scents that remind you of nature—think floral, woodsy, etc. P.S. You can totally use these candle jars as plant pots once you’re done with them, too. Check out the other tips in 5 Ways to Repurpose Bath & Body Works Products for more home décor inspo.

  5. Bonus. Get a little pep into the room
    A.k.a. the best way to add a little energy. Using sweet or citrus scents, like invigorating Orange Ginger, can help perk up your senses and get you going (or keep you going) on your day.
