We talked a lot about Aquiesse Candles around the November-December holidays last year, but burning candles is not just for the cooler months.
Aquiesse is a leader in luxury home fragrances inspired by nature. Founded in Santa Barbara, California, more than ten years ago, they collaborate with designers and perfumers to create their suite of sophisticated and approachable scents.
The lavender candle shown above features spanish sage, dry chaparral, white sandalwood, and (of course) lavender. The scent is definitely lavender, with a touch of what I would describe as woodsy and a bit herby. Sometimes, lavender can seem over-perfumed – this is not that.
These convenient travel candles burn for 20 hours and cost just $6. I use these on my bathroom counter – where space is definitely limited.
The 11 ounce Luxe Tin Candles burn for 100 hours and include matches that are conveniently stored in the lid. The containers are double-walled and stay cool to the touch. And – unbreakable!
My favorite scent is the Luxe Linen shown above. A barely sweet perfect combination of sandalwood and herbal tea is soft and romantic.
Aquiesse Candles are blended using only the highest-grade ingredients, essential oils, lead-free wicks, and pure soy wax. We love everything about these candles and the people who make them.
Here we are, deep into winter. I hope you’re staying warm. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we don’t get the kind of frigid winter that other parts of the country experience. (I lived in New York for a long time – I get it, I really get it. Slush is serious business, right?)
Today, I’m wishing you less stress. More relaxation. A slower existence – even if just for a little time each day. We give so much of ourselves – work, husbands, wives, partners, children. We simply must take time for ourselves. We must rejuvenate.
I have some go-to stress relieving techniques. Big deeeeeeep breaths and I’ve started meditating this year (I think it’s going to stick this time), and one of my tried-and-true-forever-and-ever stress relievers is to light a candle, put on some gentle music, and climb into a hot bath.
I nearly always bathe right before bed. The coziness of it all puts me in the right frame of mind to fall asleep quickly.
Here we are already – the middle of December. Christmas and Hanukkah will be here before we know it.
Some of us here have finished our shopping and are waiting for the big day. Others are still working their lists.
If you’re planning to order for the holidays (and we hope you are), you’ll want to get on that before the end of this week. Between “interesting” weather patterns this time of year and all of us last minute Santas making delivery people so busy, we can’t promise delivery if your order arrives after this week.
We have mindful gifts ready to ship today for everyone on your list.
We recently received a huge order of Leuchttrum Journals. This red one has been selling out all over the place. Perfect for notes, bullet journals, or list making. (Get one for yourself, too.)
And finally, if you’re looking for fun hostess gifts? We’ve got your back.
Brush Dance Weekly Planners are the perfect gift for the organized list-making person in your life. With more than a dozen styles, there is truly something for everyone.
Aquiesse Candles in travel size are terrific for your friends and family members who (like me) need a little spaces of tranquility. With their rich, multi-layered scents and great pricing ($5.99!), these candles cannot be beat. (Travel size shown above. Luxe Tin Shown below.)
