Winter is here again, and as much as I love the halcyon days of Summer and endless sunshine, the colder days bring a nice return to cosy, and embracing everything the Danish encapsulate in their word ‘hygge’; a term for feeling in a mood of cosiness and contentment, and enjoying the things around you.

There’s something very comforting about relaxing in front of a warm, crackling fire on a cold Winter’s night, enjoying the warmth of blankets and cushions in soft fabrics, and the subtle scent of your favourite candle burning. Bliss!

My favourite scented candle at the moment is the St Eval Winter Thyme Candle Tin

a scent reminiscent of earthy winter woodlands, combining a fresh blend of rosemary and thyme.

I’ve always been into home scenting – there’s no nicer way to welcome guests into your house than with the beautiful aroma of your favourite scent. Similarly, a quite night in alone also warrants the gentle flickering and delicious scent of a candle to make it that little bit special. They are also my ‘go to’ gift, and the online store stocks a range of candles, diffusers and room sprays to suit different budgets and tastes.

I appreciate that buying scented candles can sometimes be a hard task to do online, which is why I started sampling our candles to our customers. So don’t be surprised if you find a little candle to try in with your order! It’s also just a little thank you from me for bringing your custom to my business.

How do you embrace Winter?

With my best wishes from my home to yours,
