For many of us November is No-thank-you-vember. Memories of summer are fading, the days are getting shorter and colder, and Christmas and the holidays still seem far away. But, with a little inspiration, November can be a month that you look forward to, rather than look forward to the end of. Here at Eva Candles we believe that our design philosophy of light, flame, scent and warmth can brighten up even the gloomiest month, from aroma candles to autumn home decor, so in this blog we'll look at how to turn No-vember into Yes-vember and get the most out of this time of year.
With the nights drawing in earlier and earlier, November is the month to make your home cosy with charming lights. The Scandinavians know this, and it's an important element of hygge in their autumn home decor, and in turn the significance of candles in hygge, which we talked about in a previous blog. The key is to have a lot of sources of warm light placed around your home or your room, to create an intimate, cosy atmosphere, and the easiest way to do this is with candles. Combine this with table lamps and reading lights, and you'll look forward to the sun going down so that you can transform your home into a cosy and comfortable wonderland.
If you're lucky enough to have a real fire in your home then you already know the magical power of flame to create a soothing, cosy atmosphere. The flickering, always changing light is hypnotic and makes us feel snug and warm. For those of us who don't have a real fire there's good news - you can create the same effect with candles. Even better, aroma candles like our Cosy By The Fire Scented Candle, or our Evening Escape Luxury Candle Gift Set, also deliver scents that are reminiscent of the most captivating aromas of a real fire, without any of the fuss.
November is full of amazing scents, whether it's the aroma of pumpkin soup bubbling in the kitchen, or the scent of the leaves rustling underfoot in the crisp autumn air. What better way to appreciate November than to go for a walk in nature to work up an appetite, then come home to a delicious meal of autumnal flavours. We looked at this in our previous blog - That Golden Feeling With Autumn Candles. When it comes to autumn home decor, why not bring some of those red and gold autumn leaves home with you - when pressed and dried they make wonderful seasonal decorations. Another great way to accentuate your appreciation of autumnal scents is with aroma candles such as our Black Orchid Scented Candle, Pandora's Box Scented Candle, and Japanese Bamboo Scented Candle.
Thinking about these great ideas makes us feel warmer and cosier already. Now is the perfect time of year to treat yourself to some little luxuries and add some warmth to your home. On our products page you'll find a delightful range of scented candles that will add a special touch to an otherwise grey month and shine some light on a lacklustre time of year. It's easier than you might think, so why not bring some light, flame, scent and warmth into your home and say "Yes please!" to November.
