Candles Mothers Day

When I think of Moms and Mother's Day, I often think of flowers and bouquets of flowers. After all, what mom wouldn't love a bouquet of flowers to grace her kitchen table or coffee table? 

But let's face it: fresh flowers can be pricey and they never last as long as you may want them to. Plus, if you live far away from mom, it can be difficult to have a bouquet of flowers sent to her door because she needs to be home to get the order.

So let's talk floral scented candles for a minute because here's a way of gifting mom with the aroma of fresh flowers in her home, not just for a few days but for months. 

While both floral scented candles and fresh flowers are lovely and have their own unique benefits, here are 3 Benefits of Gifting Floral Scented Candles over a bouquet of fresh flowers:

  1. Longer lasting scent: A floral scented candle can provide a long-lasting and consistent fragrance, unlike a bouquet of fresh flowers which can wilt and quickly lose their scent or even start to smell a little rotten. With a floral scented candle, mom can enjoy the aroma for weeks, even when the candle isn't lit. 

  2. No maintenance required: Fresh flowers require maintenance such as trimming the stems, changing the water, and removing wilted petals. With a floral scented candle, there is no maintenance required other than lighting the candle and enjoying the fragrance.

  3. Safety: Some types of fresh flowers can be toxic to pets, especially cats. By choosing a floral scented candle, mom can still enjoy the beautiful scent of flowers in her home without the risk of harm to her furry friends.

Here are a few reasons why floral candles make the perfect gifts for moms:

  • Floral Candles Create a Calming Atmosphere

The scent of flowers has long been associated with relaxation and calmness. Floral scented candles can provide a sense of serenity and tranquility, making them perfect for moms who need a break from their busy lives. The gentle aroma of flowers can help reduce stress, anxiety, and promote relaxation. In fact, many types of floral candles such as Rose and Lavender have aromatherapeutic benefits, as they contain natural essential oils known to improve mood. 

  • Floral Candles Bring Nature Indoors

Floral candles allow moms to bring the beauty of nature indoors. They can evoke memories of warm summer days spent in a garden or walking through a field of wildflowers. They can also be a wonderful way to brighten up a room and add a touch of color.

  • Floral Candles Offer a Wide Variety of Scents

Floral candles come in so many different scents mom is sure to love, including A Dozen Roses, Lavender, Gardenia, Plumeria, and many more. Each scent offers unique benefits and can evoke different moods and emotions. For example, lavender can be calming and soothing, while rose can be uplifting and romantic.

  • Floral Candles Make a Great Gift

Floral scented candles make a great gift for any occasion, and Mother's Day is no exception. They are thoughtful, beautiful, and useful gifts that moms will appreciate, especially if you pick her favorite flower or one that reminds you of her.

Plus, they can be paired with other items like flowers, bath products, or a relaxing book to create a complete self-care package she's sure to love (and probably really needs!).
