Amoln’s Stunning Candles Will Make Your Home This Winter

With dark mornings followed quickly by darker evenings, we can confirm that winter has certainly arrived. Apart from those few hours of daylight, we find ourselves surrounded by either darkness or overhead lights for a large amount of the day. This can certainly put a dampener on what’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of year. What’s more, before the decorations and festive lights get put up, our surroundings can become a little joyless. With the trees bare and the house cold, is there any wonder so many of us experience the winter blues? Luckily, there’s a small addition that you can make to your home that will instantly take your winter surroundings from dull and bleak to calm and cozy. Here’s all you need to know.

Let’s first address all of that exposure to bright, artificial light. Not only can it cause headaches, but the gloomy overhead lights in our living and bedrooms can be the roadblocks from creating a homely, welcoming environment. Can you really settle into the evening with a glaring light shining above your head? A simple way to transform your living room and ease the mind is to turn those switches off and light a candle instead. The flicker of candlelight produces a unique ambiance that can instantly give a room an atmosphere of calm and intimacy. Something as simple as lighting a candle can be what takes a house to a home. The golden glimmer against the elegant Skye Blue colour of the Amoln candles exudes elegance and transforms a living room into an oasis of tranquility.

What’s more, with energy prices at an all-time high, we might hesitate to turn on our heating to add a sense of warmth to the home. However, not only do candles generate heat themselves, but they help to provide the environment of warmth that we are seeking. Snuggle into the couch with your favourite pair of slippers, a delicate blanket and with the Amoln Blues Away candle lit beside you.

This delightful candle is our personal favourite from the collection. The hand-blended notes of Danish tomato leaf, Italian verbena, artemisia, blackcurrant, rhubarb, moss, and fig tree create an uplifted concoction to sweep any blue feelings away while helping you to relax in surroundings that exude warmth, without the need for a radiator on full blast.

This brings us on to the importance of scent in the home. Amoln’s Scented Candles have been crafted with ingredients that create unique smells to soothe your mind and the minds of anyone who steps into your home throughout the festive season.

Through the power of aromatherapy, inhaling a luxurious scent that appeals to you can instantly ignite your senses while uplifting a room. Choose the scent that best matches the room. Could it be the lively floral scent of the 1945 candle? Alternatively, you might choose the woody scent of Amoln’s candle Barr.

This one has been created with old blasted Swedish pine, fir needles, resin collected from Swedish coastal forest, sandalwoods, cinnamon and a chorus of discrete herbs. Breathe in the scent and be transported to an enchanted forest, all in the comfort of your own home. 

As the cold, dark days creep in, now is the most important time to focus on your home. More importantly, the comfort of your home. With the help of Amoln candles, use that golden glimmer and beautiful scent to transform your home from a gloomy base to a welcoming haven. Impress your visitors throughout the festive season, and impress yourself each time you return home from a day out. 

These candles also work perfect for the prettiest Christmas presents this Holiday season!
