Today is Day 9 of my 12 Days of Bijou giveaway series! I am excited to share my cozy day routine with you involving Yankee Candles – one of my favorite candle company brands.
Their holiday collection is quite delicious as far as candles go! Do you ever smell a candle and think “wow, I would eat this if it wasn’t a candle”? Well that’s ALL of the candles featured here.
The holiday season is a wonderful time to light candles in your home (safely, of course) and enjoy them while you go on with your day. They are a wonderful way to make your space more cozy and warm.
How I Use Candles In My Daily Routine
If I am the first to wake, I light a candle in the kitchen so I can wake with the pleasant smell of baked goods or frosted pines. It’s a wonderful way to start the morning and it makes everything feel nice and cozy.
I go about my morning with the candle lit, making sure to always have it in my sight so that the cats don’t get into any sorts of trouble with it. Obviously keeping the candle away from anything flammable and away from pesky cats in places they can’t get to.
There’s something quite homely about listening to the radio while washing up dishes or cleaning. So I often turn on my news radio station (my favorite way of staying up to date on the latest world news) and go about my day if I’m doing any housework.
When I get into working for my clients, I like to work at the pitching counter. At this point changing the candle is based on how I’m feeling. If I need to feel more energized that day, I might go for a fruity or citrusy candle.
During the holidays, the scents I tend to burn the most are definitely the holiday scents. Yankee Candle always has the best ones because they’re very classic and not overpowering at all. I am very sensitive to scents and the sweeter/musky types of holiday candles some companies have out there are just awful for my headaches. Yankee Candle never fails to impress me on this matter. I never have headaches with their candles.
Are you someone who often finds themselves being sensitive to certain candle scents? I’d love to hear from you and what your experience has been and if you’ve tried Yankee Candles yet. Leave your thoughts in the comment below.
