With the weather becoming cold, end-of-semester papers and projects piling up, and the holidays fast approaching, it is especially important to take time to de-stress and pamper yourself. A great way to relax while adding some festivity to your living space is lighting holiday candles. With notes of cinnamon, balsam, cranberry, vanilla, peppermint, and other festive aromas, holiday scented candles can raise your spirits and help you find peace and perspective in the midst of this stressful time of year.
