7 Homesick Scents That Are Perfect for Your Next Bedroom Candle

Our bedrooms are by far the most personal and intimate spaces in our homes. The bedroom is where we go to unwind, where we go to get some shut-eye and where we wake up to greet the morning. Your bedroom is where you end each night and begin every day. When you think about it like that, you’ll realize how important it is that this space is as dreamy as it is refreshing, as relaxing as it is energizing. But how do you strike the perfect balance between a room that lulls you to sleep and a room that gets you ready to take on the new day? It’s all about creating the perfect ambiance through scent. 

When it’s time to turn in for the night, soothing scents like lavender, vanilla, jasmine and rose can help you doze off with less tossing and turning and actually enhance your sleep quality, too. And when the sun comes up, citrus scents like lemon and grapefruit, or the invigorating aroma of peppermint, can inspire you to rise and shine.  As the purpose of our bedrooms change throughout the day, so should the scents we use to set the mood. This is why Homesick has you covered, with the relaxing and restorative scented candles you’ll love having on your nightstand.

After a long day, there’s nothing better than climbing into bed, snuggling under the blankets and letting your heavy eyelids finally rest.

Just make sure to blow out the wick before you doze off!
