I don’t know about you, but taking off my makeup, soaking in a warm bath, listening to my self-love zen playlist on Spotify while my favorite scented candle is lit is probably the best time on a regular weekday. With the nice and relaxing aroma calming down your stresses from the day, finding inner peace is easy with the kind of atmosphere that scented candles set. Which is probably why I’m obsessed with them.
So if you’re as into this as I am, I know where you can get your soy candle fix that are definitely more eco-friendly than the standard Paraffin wax candles. Not to mention the added bonus that soy candles burn longer, giving you more bang for your buck. The scent is stronger, making sure that your room fills up with a beautiful aroma of your choice. So if you want to grab your soy candle for a night of relaxation, check out some of the local shops below.

Finn the Label’s beeswax candles are made of locally sourced beeswax, locally sourced cold-pressed virgin coconut oil, and pure essential oils in a glass vessel with cleansed crystals. Many people believe in the healing energies of crystals, and combining them with a candle can enhance energy work and increase the vibrations being sent forth. As the candle burns down, the wax with essential oils will heat up and activate these crystals. Available online.
