January is a strange month when you think about it. It’s all about fresh starts, resolutions and kicking off the year with positive vibes. However, it comes at the gloomiest time of year, just after the well deserved festive break that many of us could have got very used to! No wonder it can bring on some serious SAD.

We have collated our favourite scented candles to help banish the blues and give you a little pick-me-up. In this collection you’ll find beautiful scented candles filled with bright and uplifting fragrances – the perfect way to cleanse your home of the big bad blues, and fill it with positivity.
