Autumn is in the Air
As always, the warm summer months have passed by all too quickly, and now autumn is here. While this means the days are getting colder and shorter, it’s not all doom and gloom.
With mental and physical wellness more important than ever, it’s worth finding ways to make the most of this amazing season. Sure, it might not be warm, but there are still plenty of things to see and do now that autumn is in the air.
Get out and enjoy nature
Autumn is possibly one of the best seasons for enjoying nature. While summer offers flowers, autumn offers incredible colours and fascinating changes in our open spaces. Even if you only have a local park, it’s worth getting out and appreciating nature in autumn.
If you can, get out into the woods and see the leaves changing colour. Try hunting for mushrooms, as this is the best time of year for them (just don’t touch or eat them). Alternatively, go hunting for some of autumn’s best bounties, such as sloe berries or chestnuts. There’s so much about for you to take advantage of.
Support independent businesses
While this is a good idea all year round, autumn is an ideal time to continue supporting local independent businesses. Whether they’re reliant on tourism or local trade, many suffer during the colder months, as fewer people are getting out and about.
Use this as an opportunity to support local independent businesses, particularly ones based in hospitality or the arts. Perhaps you’re starting your Christmas shopping, or perhaps you just want to treat yourself. Whatever the reason, your money will mean so much more to them than a big corporation.
Stay in and make the most of free time
Autumn has plenty to offer for the adventurous, but it’s also a great time of year to stay in and curl up on the sofa with a warm drink and a good book. If that’s the kind of thing you’re looking for, then why not take it one step further and introduce one of our scented candles into the mix? We have a range of fragrances that are perfect for the autumnal months.
You could try our Cranberry, Orange and Cinnamon candle for the scents of Christmas. With a burn time of 40 hours it should last you the whole season. Alternatively, you could try our Lekki Lifestyle candle. With notes of cognac, tobacco, and oak, it has everything you need to capture the feeling of autumn evenings by the fire.
So now that autumn is truly in the air, why not make the most of it? Not everyone enjoys this season, but it has plenty to offer. As many of us adjust to the shorter days and the lower moods this can bring, it becomes the perfect time to try and lift your spirits in any way possible.
Our range of scented candles are the perfect aromatherapy for doing just this. Whether you’re looking for an autumnal scent to complete the mood, or a refreshing summer scent to remind you of warmer months, we have exactly what you need.
