There is a slight chill in the air.

Autumn Candle candles colors Colour Fall leaves natural wax candle

There is a slight chill in the air.

Have you noticed it yet but there is a chill in the air in North Yorkshire which means the evenings are getting colder and it wont be long before the leaves start to change to the gorgeous colours that Autumn brings and start to gently fall to the ground. I understand that when the leaves change colour its because the tree has stopped growing and does not require the energy (sugars) that the leaves provide so the excess sugars in the leaves ferment and it is that process that brings the oranges, yellows and gorgeous browns that we associate with...

Lavender I think is probably one of the most nostalgic of all fragrances, recalling childhood memories, bright vivid blue summer skies, Lavender bushes alive with bee's clumsily hovering from flower to flower, brushing the stems with their fat little bodies making the bush seem alive and stirring the scent to carry upon the warm summer air, this is what the fragrance of Lavender evokes for me. Lavender is beneficial in other ways too. Essential oil of Lavender has antiseptic and anti-fungal properties it is used in the treatment of acne, psoriasis and other inflammatory conditions. It helps speed up the healing...
