If you must have the glow of a candle, use the battery operated kind, but for scent use essential oils in a diffuser. Not only will you be removing the toxins that come along with burning a candle, but you’ll actually be adding oils to the air that may improve your health, mood, etc.. And the scent combinations are endless!
A few easy choices: x 2-3 drops YL Peppermint and 2-3 drops citrus (such as Lemon, Orange, or Tangerine) provides a clean and refreshing scent x 2-3 drops YL Thieves smells like baking, and, as you know by now, helps kill the germs in your house.
You can also add a few drops of a citrus oil, for a twist. Orange is a nice choice to accompany Thieves. x 2-3 drops YL Stress Away smells like a beach vacation, and Lime is a great addition to Stress Away for a little something extra!
