As the long, hot summer days give way to shorter days and cooler nights, lighting fall-scented candles during this season will transform your home into a haven of warmth and coziness.
Autumn is the season to take a step back from the rushed, frenetic pace of summer and embrace the hygge lifestyle. If you haven’t heard of hygge, this is a Danish concept that embraces the idea of slowing down, cozying up, and indulging in some feel-good-all-over self-care. Candles are an integral part of the hygge lifestyle, especially during fall.
