Scented candles for Mother’s Day

Don’t say you weren’t warned: Mother’s Day is Sunday 11th March. And scented candles are our top tip for showing your love and appreciation.

Mums are busy people. Even if yours is retired now, they certainly have been busy in their time. So what better gift than one that encourages some relaxation, some downtime?

The perfect accompaniment to a nice meal, a blissful bath, an evening of chocolates and TV or a quiet yoga session, scented candles are great for all occasions.

They are also the gift that keeps on giving – our scented candles have a burn time of 40 hours. So there is plenty of time to enjoy your thoughtful gift.

Choosing your scented candles

Boxed Blooms has scented candles in four lovely aromas: citrus, lavender, jasmine and vanilla. Which one will you choose?

Citrus is an energising, invigorating, fresh scent. Great for living rooms and action rather than relaxation. Lavender is a classic, a lovely warm aroma. A good choice for bedrooms. The delicate smell of jasmine is feminine and sweet. Jasmine would work well for those decadent pampering sessions and long baths. Vanilla is another favourite, evoking baking and homeliness. A nice pick if your mum likes chilling out on the settee watching a good film.

Whichever scent you pick, we are sure your gift will be well used and much appreciated.

All our candles come beautifully presented in elegant packaging, tied with a ribbon. And there’s free next day delivery too.

Best scented candles that men will love too

You might not think that scented candles are a great present choice for men, or something a bloke would be into. But scented candles can be enjoyed by everyone and the benefits can be felt by all.

If you need a little convincing, here are the best scented candles that men will love too.

Men might prefer to avoid the higher, flowery notes of jasmine, for instance, but there are plenty of earthier tones. Lavender is a classic scent. Vanilla is always one of the best scented candles with a relaxing, homely aroma.

Intent on capturing the male market is the Boy Smells brand, featuring scents such as Kush. Yes, that’s right, a scented candle based on the cannabis flower. Complemented with suede, amber and white musk, it’s a distinctive fragrance with a unique angle.

How about the scent of cactus? A pretty unique twist on a scented candle.

Citrus scents are sure to be a hit with menfolk. The energising scent is fresh and well suited to springtime.

Smell is a great memory-prompt and might trigger some nostalgia. It can create a nice atmosphere at home with memories of the past, and be a backdrop to new ones. Everyone needs a bit of relaxation and scented candles are a great way to unwind. They are also great at setting the mood. Both the aroma and gentle flickering can lend a touch of romance to an evening in.

Boxed Blooms has the best scented candles in vanilla, lavender, jasmine and citrus. With stunning packaging and free next day delivery they make a fantastic gift for everyone.

Aromatherapy candles – which scent will you choose?

Aromatherapy candles provide a soothing scent that can be used to set a mood. The scent you choose isn’t just a case of your favourite smell. You can evoke different feelings and sensations with the different scents.

Boxed Blooms has four luxury aromatherapy candles to choose from in classic scents of lavender, jasmine, vanilla and citrus. Find out the unique properties of each variety and decide on the perfect scent for you.

Lavender aromatherapy candles

Lavender is one of the oldest aromatherapy scents and is great for relaxation, relieving anxiety and better sleep. It’s more valuable than ever now, in a time of rising stress levels. A lavender scented candle will help you relax and unwind.

Jasmine aromatherapy candles

Famous among poets and for perfumes, the scent of jasmine is thought to be an aphrodisiac as well as an antidepressant. It is relaxing as well as mood boosting. With a lovely, light fragrance it can perfume a home and work wonders on your mind.

Vanilla aromatherapy candles

Vanilla is another popular scent for the home. It gives a comfortable, relaxing feel of cooking and hospitality. It’s also an antioxidant and thought to have anticarcinogenic properties so it’s great for your body too.

Citrus aromatherapy candles

If you want a bright aromatherapy scent then citrus is what you need. It’s a great air freshener and citrus scents are often used in cleaning products to get that same fresh feeling. Citrus is good for a boost of energy and a lift in mood.

All of our aromatherapy candles come beautifully packaged and are perfect as a gift or a treat for yourself. They have a burn time of up to 45 hours so you can enjoy the benefits again and again.
