Self-care means looking after yourself so that you can stay strong and keep going. When we're busy with work or parenting or caring responsibilities, sometimes we forget about our own needs for a while. But self-care has never been more important.
You don't have to plan an elaborate home spa day. Self-care can be something as simple as a 15-minute coffee break. It's about what makes you feel happy, relaxed, and more like yourself. We've picked out four of our favorite candles, diffusers and room sprays to help you take care this week.
A little taste of chocolate always makes us feel better. This delicious candle by Montale gives out a rich cocoa scent, with subtle notes of orange, vanilla and dried fruits. And it burns for 40 hours - plenty long enough to read your favorite book, enjoy a hot bath, or just sit back and enjoy the evening!
Fill your house with this gentle spring/summer scent from Parfums de Nicolai. Fleur de Tiaré is designed to remind you of sunset on a tropical beach, with notes of coconut, citrus and ylang ylang. If you can't travel right now, at least you can bring the scent of the beach home!
We love Montale candles for their rich, luxurious scents - and Aoud Night definitely delivers. Rose and patchouli are traditionally romantic and calming scents, with an invigorating touch of sandalwood. This is a candle to be savored!
Need a quick pick-me-up? We recommend this room spray, another hit from Parfums de Nicolai. Un Soir en Sicile perfectly recreates the fragrance of an evening on old Italian streets, with citrus, bergamot, jasmine and mint. Spray around the house or on your pillow for a clean, calming scent.
