I love long-lasting fragrances for the body and for my home, especially this time of year. As the season changes, the sun goes down sooner making the weather cooler, the more I want to stay within the confines of my home. I want to feel the weight of my favorite comforter, the feel of my fuzziest socks, and scents that make being confined indoors completely comfortable.
We attribute specific aromas to certain seasons or festivities like family get-togethers or the few moments we can enjoy hot chocolate in serene silence while watching the snowflakes dance to the ground from up above. Pumpkin spice reminds us of fall. Vanilla cookies remind me of Christmas. Add a candle to each occasion and retain those scents that arouse our sense of connectedness to changes in the weather, the incumbent holidays, while grateful for it all.
For me (and probably for you too), a scented candle makes the season more merry, makes home a little more comfy, and the cold weather a bit more bearable. Ayoka (a Yoruba word that translates to gratitude) offers a variety of luxurious candles, converting any space into a sanctuary of peace during candle season and all year round.
Ayoka Candles not only illuminate your home and release an inviting aromatheraputic fragrance, but they are also a healthy alternative to wax paraffin candles. Ayoka Candles are made with soybeans, coconut, and natural oils to create a soothing smell. Soy candles tend to grasp natural scents better than paraffin candles. The scent lasts longer because they burn slower and release their natural oils gradually.
What I also noticed about the Ayoka Candles I received was they each were a different scent but they all were the same color. Colored candles might be pretty and match your home's decor, but the dyes used to create those colored candles contain toxic compounds that may be dangerous if inhaled. Some colored candles use natural dyes and safe artificial pigments. But why would you want to have to guess if your candle is going to impact your health?
Purchasing an all-natural candle from Ayoka Candle Co., removes the guesswork and allows you to burn your candle with the confidence of knowing you are not exposing yourself or your family to anything toxic or harmful.
I couldn't pick a favorite Ayoka Candle; I loved each one and you will too. Please click the video below for a full review of Ayoka Candles and my reaction to each scent!
