Winding Down With Essential Oils

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I use aromatherapy whenever we are home. I choose to use essential oils as a way to purify and cleanse our indoor air. We spend a lot of time at home, so I want our air to smell fresh and clean, without the use of fake scented products.

Using essential oils is incredibly easy as there are many ways to feel the natural effects!

Handcrafted Candles for Every Occasion

 

Handcrafted Candles for Every Occasion_Pink Disco and MinimalistBeauty Brite Disclosure 

One of the simplest ways to update your décor is with candles. They can transform a room with their warm glow, aromatic throw, or elegant packaging. For me, candles let me express my style and help create the ideal mood, or feel, of every room in my home. This time of year, I’m creating a myriad of sensory experiences with the handcrafted candles of Brooklyn Candle Studio.

This independent studio, located in Brooklyn, New York, was founded by in 2013 by designer Tamara Mayne. Her obsession with aromatherapy and candlemaking extends beyond creating beautifully designed candles. It’s also about being eco-friendly. Each handcrafted candle from Brooklyn Candle Studio is made from 100% soy wax with lead-free cotton wicks primed with vegetable-based wax. In addition, each every candle is vegan and free of preservatives, petroleum, and animal testing.

Handcrafted Candles – Minimalist

While I like to burn candles all year long, my favorite time of year to do so is in the fall. There’s nothing like taking a hot bath or cozying up under a blanket while warm, toasty scents fill the air. You can imagine my excitement when Brooklyn Candle Studio offered me to send me some of their seasonal offerings.

I received Apple Cider and Fern + Moss from their Minimalist Collection. Packaged in simple glass jars, with brushed gold lids, their Minimalist Candles look perfect in every room of the house, from the kitchen to the bedroom.

Apple Cider is the epitome of fall. The natural cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, orange, and cedarwood essential oils blend perfectly with the top notes of crisp apple. There’s nothing artificial about this candle either. It’s has a nice, rich throw, without being too sweet or overpowering.

The best way I can describe Fern + Moss is that of a yummy, outdoorsman. In a good way of course. It’s blend of natural sage, lavender, orange, spruce, and pine are heavenly. I can’t get enough of this candle, even though when I first smelled it, I wasn’t sure it was for me. I thought it would turn my home into a den of cheap cologne. Quite the contrary. It has the perfect, woodsy, musky throw.

Now if both handcrafted candles could magically bring me a hot, man carrying warm mugs full of whiskey infused cider…ah, a girl can dream.

 

Brooklyn Candle Studio – Pink Disco

In addition to the Minimalist Collection, I was also drawn to the Brooklyn Candle Studio Limited Edition Pink Disco Collection. This unique holiday collection was inspired by cocktail party season, and features three handcrafted candles in Prosecco, Fireplace, and Cypress. Each candle is hand-poured into a frosted, blush colored jar and then stamped with a gold foil accent.

As a fan of sweet libations, I decided to order Prosecco. Nothing says holiday, cocktail party like a flute of Prosecco. Not only is the candle gorgeous to look at, but it also has a lovely throw. With notes of red berries, wild roses and white musk, Prosecco is the ideal candle for starting your evening, or cocktail party, off on the right note.

Candles for Every Occasion

What I like most about these handcrafted candles is the divine scent they leave long after I’ve extinguished their warm glow. It’s always a treat to walk into the room the next day and still smell their throw. I look forward to burning these Brooklyn Candle Studio gems all season long, as well as picking up some more for myself and for gifts.

 What are your favorite fall candle scents?  How do like to incorporate candles into your home decor?

Everyone in my house is an animal lover. Currently, we have two dogs and seven cats. If it were up to my daughter, we would have our own personal petting zoo. We try to foster animals when we can – hence the seven cats – but sometimes keeping our house clean and smelling fresh is just too much of a burden.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I use essential oils throughout my home religiously! With my daughter starting her first day of preschool soon, I am blasting ‘health shield’ and ‘eucalyptus’ to keep us breathing fresh air and germ-free. While our teachers try their best to keep classrooms sanitized, they can quite kill off every germ, so it always seems as though one (or all of us) fall sick within the first three weeks of school.

One Step Closer to Chemical Free Fragrance in the Home

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It seems that everywhere we look, popular brands are using fewer chemicals when it comes to the makeup of their products, especially when it comes to the fragrance products we use in our homes. This is a huge step compared to years ago when the chemical makeup of a product was irrelevant to the vast population. Majority of people were clueless as to how dangerous these chemicals could be for our bodies as well as the ecosystem. I have to admit I was one of those people. However, I am also a firm believer that if one knows better, they tend to do better. The problem for me is that I really enjoy some of the artificial fragrances you can find in today’s market. Below are a few products I have found that can help start the baby step process of having less chemical filled fragrance products in your home.

Powerful And Natural Cleaning
Beauty Brite Disclosure

When I was pregnant with my son, I realized the cleaning products I was using was not good for my health and didn’t want to put my baby to have to smell or even be around those harsh chemicals. I knew that whenever I cleaned, the fumes would make me dizzy and affect my asthma and breathing. It really hit me when I had cleaned the bathtub with a cleaning product with bleach and here I was giving my son a bath. The thought of the residue left from the chemicals, bleach, and even the smell of everything really bothered me and forced me to look at alternative cleaning solutions.

Are you looking for powerful and natural cleaning solutions that really work? Your cleaning products don’t need to contain nasty chemicals to be effective!

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I tend to go through phases where I love to clean and other times, I just let it go! When I do clean, I like to choose natural cleaning products that are not harmful to our health as well as the environment. A few months, I bought plain baking soda and cleaning brushes to use for a basic scrub for the sink and bathtub. I don’t like using cleaning products with chemicals because they irritate my eyes, lungs, and overall health.

I choose products that are safe to use around my whole family! I am so excited to show you what products I use to go naturally naked cleaning!
