Introducing, SAD GIRL SEASON
Smells like extra therapy visits and comfort food.
While we may not able to cure seasonal depression, this blend of Basil, Moss, Patchouli, Floral, and Citrus, along with a few helpful tips can uplift and support you through this season.
Since daylight savings has robbed us of an hour of sunlight, we have to work a little harder to get our daily dose of Vitamin D. Simply opening your curtains to let the light in, stepping outside for fresh air, and checking in with your physician for the proper intake of vitamins can boost your mood significantly.
There is absolutely no shame in needing to get on your therapist’s schedule a little more often during this time of year. Establishing your support system and coming up with a plan of action is key to combating the winter blues.
Although it may be easier to curl up under your weighted blanket and hibernate the cold months away, prioritizing your social activities could greatly improve your mood (introvert or not). Community can be incredibly healing and supportive during this time. Grab your girls and have a pajama and movie night, actually go to that Friendsgiving party, or even make time to check in with someone who could use a heartfelt convo just as much as you.
We all know how crucial self-care is to our overall wellness. This winter, be sure not to skip out on treating yourself. Stimulate your senses with essential oils, comforting meals packed with warming herbs and spices, and rich moisturizers to soothe your skin. Most importantly, offer love and grace to yourself as you move through this season.
All of our candles are made with safe, non-toxic, and natural ingredients. After suffering with migraines for years, I realized that my favorite candles were the culprit. I didn’t want to give up my candle habit, though, so I created candles that everyone can safely enjoy.
We use only wooden or natural cotton wicks. The wooden wicks will crackle when lit. Each candle is 10 oz and has a burn time of 75-80 hours. Since they are all made out of natural soy wax, they have a slower burn time than most commercial candles.
To optimize burn time and prevent tunneling, be sure to create a “burn memory” the first time you light your candle. Burn until the wax is melted all the way to the glass sides. This usually takes about 2 hours. Then extinguish. Never burn your candle for longer than 4 hours at a time.
To ensure even burning, only burn your candle in still air. If there is a draft that cannot be avoided, periodically turn your candle so that it will burn evenly. Candles burned in drafts will often smoke. So be aware of the air currents in your home.
Proper storage will keep your candle burning bright. Soy wax candles are very sensitive to heat and light. Store your candle in a cool, dark area. Avoid overly warm storage options, like over the stove or near a heat source. Always store candles upright.
Respect your candle! Trim your candle wick each and every time before you light it. It is important to trim the black ball or blacked end after use. Trim at least ¼ of wooden wick ends. Trimming will ensure that the candle does not burn hotter than it should and also prolong the life of the candle. Do not trim the wick too short or it may not relight.
Our beautiful jars can be repurposed and used around the house for cotton balls, makeup brushes, pens, and more. Get creative and keep enjoying your candle for years to come.
