I just love to light a candle and smell the aroma throughout the house during the day! It’s a small way to bring a little change in the environment and add a small touch of personalization for anyone that walks by.
I’ve always had a hard time finding candles that I trust are sourced and manufactured sustainably so I’ve made a list of those that I found and always use around my house.
Follain Candle No. 2
Follain pours their candles in the USA and this one is made using sustainable vegetable wax and a cotton wick. It’s definitely a great gift or for use at home.

Goop Edition 01 Church
I love the outdoorsy, woodsy type of fragrances to contrast the sweeter, citrusy, ones. This Edition 01 candle from Goop will burn up to 65 hours and makes me feel like I’m outside taking a long stroll through a temperate forest looking a fields of moss and lichen everywhere.

Lite + Cycle Birgamot
Oh yes, the smell of Lavender! It’s one of those fragrances that brings me to imagining I’m walking through fields of flowers on an European countryside! This is a delicate and not over powering fragrance. Made from soy, lavendar, and has a cotton wick, not metal.

This candle from Credo uses a mixture of natural fragrances and comes in three scents. I like the Annica because again a quieter, more calm scent that reminds me of some floral and woody notes like hazelnut.

One of my favorites. About 50 hours of burn time, this is a floral and flower scent that burns clean and leaves me relaxed and with tranquil thoughts after a long day.
