Candles

Warm, woody candles are a must-have for the autumn-winter season. Keep them away from a window so they can burn evenly, and remember to trim them before lighting. Soy-based candles require little to no maintenance, and the glass can also be used to store the essentials after it’s been cleaned.

They also help to set the warm and cozy ambience that we all want to achieve during the colder seasons.
