Even life on the farm can feel a bit hustle and bustle during the autumn months as we ramp things up for Christmas! Since we’re feeling the rush we though it might be a great time to slow things down and focus a bit on self-care.

We’ve selected these things to help you relax and take-in all that autumn has to offer!


Journalling, particularly as the leaves change, can be such a healthy way to escape, a way to acknowledge our thoughts and feelings, and even to vent if we’re feeling frustrated.

Autumn is the time of year that most represents change, and is a perfect time to take a look at your life — did you accomplish what you set out to this year? Do you need to declutter to feel more at peace? Or change your work habits to give yourself more work-life balance?

Ultimately, it’s up to you, but give your self space and time to make the change you want in your life. Be patient and keep pushing!

And if you’re looking to stimulate your journaling have you thought about doing it by candle light with the magical, starry Nocturne Scented Candle?

Unplug for one day

This is a big one for us, since we’re open 7 days a week there’s hardly a time when we don’t have our phones on to take orders, answer questions, or handle deliveries! But, even with all of that sometimes, we have to shut the phone off.

We know life can move so fast these days and to help stay focused balanced and present in the moment it can be important to schedule times when your phone is off. Spend it with family. Spend the time journalling. Spend the time reading your favourite book. Basically, anything but being on your phone (don’t worry we’re all a bit guilty here).

Unplugging from technology can be scary, but it can also help you relax and refocus on what’s really important in your life. We highly recommend you try it to see if it works for you!

It may be difficult to adjust at first, but, if you’re finding it difficult to sleep why not try some of our favourite candles to help you get a good nights sleep! Try our Lavender candle if you are looking to spend your evenings relaxing and remember to blow it out before you go to sleep. Our candles are so flowery and fragrant the smell can last for hours after being extinguished.

Take a candle lit bath

One of the best self-care practices is creating that in home spa-like feel! What better way to do that than with a warm bath lit by your favourite Melt candles? Our fragrances can transport you to deep in Forest, bring back feelings of Christmas time, or even have you reminiscing about the sweet and subtle smells summer, like with our Dance candle.

Baths are sort of like journaling and can help give you time and space to think about your life, and where you’d like it to go.
