TAKE IT EASY

My favourite part of the day is definitely when I can indulge in some home comforts. Part of this routine involves this little candle. I came across the Cowshed boutique at Bicester Village and found the Cowshed soothing room candle at a discounted price for £18. I find it really hard to buy candles as some are either overly floral, sweet, musky or just smells too much like air freshener. This one is not overpowering and quite a clean fragrance with calming chamomile, sandalwood and jasmine essential oil. Unlike some candles, I can leave it burning for several hours and it's not overpowering. It's really soothing, relaxing and has become one of my favourite things after a long day at work. It's great to come home, burn this, get in my PJs, grab a cup of tea and spend the evening catching up on blogs, watching an episode of a favourite drama/tv show (I've finally started Breaking Bad) or reading another chapter of a book. Perfect. Do you guys have any favourite routines, I'd love to know!

  2. I do LOVE a good candle. Candlelight is magical and scented candles are part of my favourite way to relax. My current favourite is Kobe by Astier de Villatte but I shall certainly look into trying this one. I am partial to sandalwood!

  5. Aw, this sounds lovely! We got a aromatherapy humidifier not too long ago, and I've been putting in a few drops of essential oils before going to bed. I always wake up feeling so refreshed now! :)

  6. They definitely do - they just make everything seem cosier. I don't opt for baths very much but I am so lighting a candle or two the next time I take some time out :)

  7. Candles are so calming aren't they, especially when you find a scent you love. I'll definitely have to check out the Kobe one!

  9. It's lovely! I've had some lovely candles in the past but sometimes they are just too strong and give me headaches after 10 mins. This one is perfect x
