A while back (like a long while) I talked about how I really wanted to establish some sort of morning routine to set the mood for the day. I know it’s the little things that make or break your productivity and just wanted something soothing to start off with.
I’ve tried buying a couple essential oils and I just can’t get into them. Because I forget I have them and the process of mixing them, putting them in a diffuser, etc is just more than I want to deal with. Also the diffuser needs to plug in, and frankly with chargers and everything else, it just seems like one more cord in my home. I love the idea of essential oils, I just can’t seem to stick with them. So when I got the opportunity to try out the Chesapeake Bay Mind & Body Collection, candles that are infused with essential oils, I was all for it!
Simplicity is my jam and I have one of these candles in all the main areas of my home! They fit in perfect with my home decor and the scents are ah-mazing. They will be great all year round, but I feel like finding refreshing candle fragrances in the summer is challenging, but these are perfect!
The Mind and Body Collection from Chesapeake Bay Candle consists of 10 fragrances, including the strength + energy, simplicity + hope, balance + harmony, and reflection + clarity fragrances that I have. They actually come in jar candles (what I’ve got), reed diffusers and pillar candles. They were designed for people like me (and probably you) who are into living an overall healthier lifestyle and simplifying life. They’re meant to help you pause and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
I love that message so much and I can tell you that since getting these I’ve done plenty of pausing and enjoying them. They’re so good!
I’ll show you the areas I’ve set these candles up in my home and how I’m using them. Since they’re made with essential oils that have specific purposes, I’ve tried to put each one in the appropriate spot to get the most out of them.
I decided to put the simplicity + hope candle in our master bedroom. I want my room to be a place where I can relax and be happy, so I thought it was fitting. It has a mint basil scent and is perfect for that spot.
I’m also happy to have it here because this is a space I’d been neglecting and had on my to-do to decorate for quite a while. I finally pulled together some things from around the house and I love how it turned out
I put the strength + energy candle in our front living room, the place where I do a lot of work and Graham does a lot of running. He doesn’t need any more energy, but I certainly do to keep up with him. This one has a pineapple coconut fragrance and it miiiiight be my favorite. I’m actually burning it right now. :)
The reflection + clarity jar candle is living in our main living room. We spend the most time here so I think the relaxing sea salt sage fragrance is perfect in here. And you can see the wood lid the candles have – so cute!
balance + harmony is in the kitchen, the chaotic center of our lives. I figured that’s the space we need the most balance in as it’s the place people gather, meals are made, work is done and bills are paid. The waterlily pear scent is so fresh. It sets the perfect tone for the room.
It really is the little things in life. These wellness fragrances from Chesapeake Bay Candle are exactly what I was looking for to enhance my morning routine – and the rest of the day too. They’re easy and smell so good that I’m burning at least one of them most of the time. And I’ll take all the help I can get when it comes to creating calm in my home!
