Candles that Heal, Crackle & Relax

Candles are a necessity in my home so I’m always looking for a deal. Recently, I took advantage of the Bath and Body Works $10 off candle sale. I purchased two of their new scents. The White Gardenia is heavily aromatic and intoxicating. It was a must buy. So was the Wild Sage and Aloe. Sage is one of my favorite scents and combining it with aloe creates a smooth aroma that’s perfect for creating a relaxing atmosphere. Also, the mint green hue of the glass container is gorgeous once the wick is lit.

Years ago, I discovered a line of candles that smell incredible and are potentially good for your spirit. They are Crystal Journey candles which are great for meditation. Each candle is created with a positive intention and includes an inspirational message. I bought Protection which is a blend of  frankincense, sandalwood, rosemary, and clove. Angel’s Influence is comprised of honeysuckle, sweet heather, rose, and peppermint. Peace has a combination of vanilla, clove, myrrh, ginger root, and caraway seeds. The candles are usually found at small trendy stores or you can get them here: Journey Candles.

Like many people, I have an anxiety issue that causes me to grind my teeth. I saw this worry stone and decided to give it a try. It’s basically a smooth stone that fits between my fingers and thumb. I rub it to alleviate anxiety. So far it’s working for me.

Next, I came across a nice supply of WoodWick candles at Marshall’s. These candles crackle as they burn. They’re amazing and extremely calming. I paid $10 for this candle. It usually costs between $26 to $30.

Lastly, I found a LAB flameless candle at Marshall’s. I love this candle. I mean, I really love this candle. It’s made of scented wax and Himalayan salt. There’s a timer on the candle, so it turns on at the same time every night and stays on for four hours. My candle turns on around bedtime. When I walk into my room, I’m greeted by a delicate flowery scent. Once the lights are off, the soft illumination of the candle soothes me to sleep. The best part is the candle cost less than eight bucks. I love a great bargain, especially one that helps this insomniac sleep.

Stay blessed,

Barbie

I named it Barbie's Bookmarks because I love literature, and I love documenting things I find important in my life.. big and small. Thus, these are my life's bookmarks. I look forward to sharing them with you and learning about your bookmarks as well.
