Candles are an amazing way to decorate your home. When you add in the feeling and memories a scent can invoke, a candle can complete a room in a way no other piece of decoration can. There are lots of ways you can decorate your home with candles, so here are our suggestions on how to use Soy Delicious Candles throughout your home.
General candle decorating tips:
- When using scented candles, don’t combine too many scents in one area. It can be overwhelming and may not smell good.
- Try out seasonal scents to add a little something special.
- Follow our candle care tips to help make your candles last longer!
Decorating your living room with candles
Outside of your bedroom, you probably spend a lot of time in your living room – the space where you snuggle up to watch a movie or play board games with friends and family. So when thinking about a candle scent for this room, you want something fresh and subtle that can fill the space. Think of scents that are floral, fruity, or woodsy.
We recommend our Soy Delicious Luxe Home or White Flower Candle for your living room.
Luxe Home is part of our Clean Collection and the ultimate scent for your living room. It creates a deep clean smell that is subtle but refreshing. White Flower is a floral scent that is fresh enough to make you think you have vases of flowers throughout the room, but delicate so as not to overwhelm the senses. Add in some fancy matches and a candle snuffer for another splash of decoration, and your living room will have never looked or smelled better!
Decorating your kitchen with candles
Your kitchen is a space that is often very social and filled with activity, so you want a scent that feels inviting and a candle that doesn’t take up too much space or get in the way. The scent should also help your kitchen smell fresh and enhance the food you’re cooking. Look for scents that are citrus, spice, or food-based (like fresh cookies or pies).
We recommend our Soy Delicious Moroccan Argan or Madagascar Vanilla Candle for your kitchen.
We call these our Gourmand Collection – and for good reason. The Madagascar Vanilla will invoke memories of fresh cookies baking in the oven. While the Moroccan Argan is vanilla and lavender based, inspiring thoughts of comfort food. Plus, both these scents come in travel tin size and will work great in a kitchen with limited space.
Decorating your bedroom with candles
Your bedroom is a haven from the outside world and can be a place of tranquility, relaxation, or romance. A lit candle can bring just the right amount of ambiance to light up a romantic moment or complement a lazy weekend in bed. So think about the type of mood you want when selecting a candle to decorate your bedroom. Consider scents like lavender, eucalyptus, vanilla, or one of your favorites.
Both scents come from our Spa Collection – so they set the stage of letting go of all your worries. You’ll luxuriate in these amazing scents as the stresses of your day melt away.
But if you’re looking for something a bit more sensuous and woodsy for a romantic evening, check out our Musk Collection.
Decorating your bathroom with candles
Candles in your bathroom can make it feel and look like your favorite spa. Add in a luxurious bubble bath using your favorite bath bomb, and it couldn’t get more relaxing! Candles also help your bathroom feel fresh and clean while giving it the right amount of brightness. Look for citrus, linen, or ocean scents.
These 2 candles are from our Tropical Collection, and they’ll make you feel like you’ve been transported to an ocean paradise! Our Capri Candle gets its name from the Italian coastal town, setting a scene of beach, sun, and sand. Our Santorini Candle is the namesake for the island in the Aegean Sea, bringing images of blue waters and tropical breezes.
