Mind & Body :: Chesapeake Bay Candle

chesapeake bay candle // mind & body

Recently I received a lovely assortment of candles and diffusers from the Mind & Body Collection by Chesapeake Bay Candle. The arrival of this new lifestyle collection of home fragrance products couldn’t have come at a better time. Our kitchen remodel has run into some roadblocks that have added additional stress to our lives and we needed a little wellness. The Chesapeake Bay’s Mind & Body Collection offers eight soothing scents available in a range of formats, including jar candles, reed diffusers, and pillar candles in three sizes. And all are very reasonably priced!

The first candle I gravitated to was Peace & Tranquility. I love the simple, yet elegant white frosted glass jar which looks great in any room. Clean, airy and exotic, this candle delivers a beautiful aroma blending floral namely jasmine, cotton blossom, and rose with woody elements including cashmere and sandalwood. I also loved that the soy wax blend candle with a lead-free cotton wick burns cleanly – perfect for the healthy home. This beauty is going to be enjoyed in our new kitchen and a calming reminder to look at the positives in life.
