Bedroom Fragrance Tips

The Right Time to Light Your Scented Candle

We recommend lighting your scented candle in your bedroom about 1 to 2 hours before going to sleep, then turning the candle off when going to sleep. This will make your bedroom smell fresh and create a calm atmosphere.

Consider Room Size

For large bedrooms, you may want to light multiple candles instead of just one to create an appropriate effect. An easy way to check if that's the case is to light up one candle and check after 30 minutes if the scent is noticeable. If not, think of adding a second one for best results.

Choose Quality

If you decide to buy scented candles for your bedroom, make sure to invest in high-quality, premium scented candles. Make sure, they're candles crafted from natural waxes like soy and coconut and organic oils. These candles burn cleaner and provide a more pleasant and lasting fragrance.

At Craft Society, we are proud to produce all-natural candles from a soy-coconut wax blend. All our scented candles are made by hand in Germany and use only the finest ingredients.
