Prosperity Candle$28Buy Now
These 100% essential oil aromatherapy candles arrive in a gift box with a story card about the woman artisan who made it–all of them creating their new beginnings after years of living as refugees. The Tranquility collection, in particular, was created with the intent of uplifting the mood and inspiring serenity, and we think it definitely succeeded.
All Otherland candles are free of harmful ingredients like parabens, phthalates and paraffin, and burn without smoke or soot. The Cardamon Milk is not your average pumpkin spice fall candle; instead, it brings together spicy and woodsy notes that make you feel like you just walked into a local coffee shop. Enjoy it with a cup of something warm, especially on a rainy (or snowy) day.
Crafted from a sustainable vegetable wax blend, and elegantly packaged, this soothing lavender, vanilla and sandalwood candle is the perfect gift or addition to your own self-care rituals. If you’re looking to de-stress quickly, this calming scent should definitely help.
With a calming fragrance that balances notes of pine, eucalyptus, incense, oolong tea and geraniums, this scent feels like taking refuge in a peaceful garden. Start your day by lighting this while doing your morning pages, meditating, or just enjoying breakfast.
Beautifully packaged in a reusable holographic container, these clean-burning candles come in four long-lasting scents–each one better than the next! We love the Lush Escape blend, but if you’re going for a more season-appropriate choice, their limited edition Spiced Cedar is probably the way to go.
The Worthington Collection$60Buy Now
These indulgent vegan candles are certified free of harsh ingredients, and serve a dual purpose of also being odor-eliminating. We love the Serene Retreat–not only is it practical, but it will also make you feel like you’re at a spa. Put on a plush robe and a face mask, and enjoy a lazy morning while burning it.
Enhance the ambiance of any space in your home with a Homecourt candle. In a kiln-baked vase that can be repurposed after burning, these candles are sustainably made with people and pet-safe ingredients, and both look and smell incredible. If you’re a fan of floral scents, the Steeped Rose is one you can’t miss out on.
Ellis Brooklyn$65Buy Now
Housed in a recycled glass container and formulated with a soy, coconut and shea wax blend, these eco-friendly candles are an absolute delight. Fable is a celebration of stories, with notes of honeysuckle and violet. Capitalize on that feeling of childhood nostalgia by lighting it while cozied up with a good book, like you did back when you were able to read for hours uninterrupted.
If you like to feel like a queen in your home, look no further than Nette’s Queen candle. With a coconut and soy wax blend in beautiful handmade containers and notes of honey and wildflowers, this scent elicits the feeling of being in a beautiful meadow at sunset. If you want an extra treat, splurge for The Honey Bunch ($105), which includes a jar of their signature 100% raw honey.
