Candles are something that can completely change the energy in a room. From the scent to the warmth of the light it brings to the room, we love a candle to create a space of our own, particularly in times of stress or imbalance.

Scent can be hugely influential on emotions and your mindset – it can invoke memories or past feelings, certain ingredients have properties that can energise, calm or cheer you and candles are one way to utilise this.

The Velvet Peony Candle from Urban Apothecary is one that we’ve been particularly drawn to recently.

You can’t help but find yourself drawn to the scent of this. It’s absolutely stunning – with sleek, elegant packaging to match.

Urban Apothecary describes this candle as one that “encapsulates the heady bloom of velvety peony when it is flourishing. Succulent, delicately sweet top notes of peach and raspberry open out into a heart of blushing rose, powdery violet, ylang ylang and fresh, blooming peony. To create seductive contrast, resinous amberwood creates the perfect base for the fresh petals, instilling sumptuous spice and beautiful balance.”
