Don’t Forget to Pack These When You Travel

When we say “September,” what comes to mind? For some, it’s a visit to the 9/11 Memorial, to others it’s the Music Festivals, Fashion Week, Burning Man, and other events. 

But did you know that September is also World Candle Month? Let’s take a closer look at this interesting tidbit.

S M A L L business Instagram is hard, but it's a fact that to succeed as a small business you have to take part… like it or not it's a 21st century fact. So, if like me you've got this far as a tiny little empire, pat yourself on the back and remember these things . . Always be courageous and strong, and be fearless, what's the worst that can happen. Build up your weaknesses until they become your strong points and learn from mistakes… because you will make them. . . If you feel lost, despondent, hesitant or disappointed, return to yourself, to who you are, return to your product and remember how great it actually is … look how far you've come, take a break and start tomorrow as a new day. . . Life's challenges are not supposed to destroy you, they help you discover who you are and how great you can be . Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need one good reason why it will. . In the words of #winstonchurchill "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts" . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #flatlaylove #flatlay #flatlayoftheday #flatlaynation #flatlaysquad #flatlayphotography #flatlaytoday #flatlaystyle #flatlayinspo #flatlaygoals #flatlays #flatlaystyling #darlingweekend #selfcarelove #minimaliststyle #communityovercompetition #thevisualcollective #makersmovement #momentsofmine #mycreativebizl #creativesofinstagram #pursuepretty #herestothecreatives #alliseeispretty #thatsdarling #soywaxcandles #veganfriendlyproducts #candleseason #plasticfree

The uses of candles have since then become broader and specific as years went by. From simple illumination, to ceremonies, symbolism, meditation, and even just for fun, candles play such big roles in our lives.

In reality, some people can’t even sleep without lighting candles. This could be a problem when checking in hotels. Thus, the travel candle was made.

Travel candles are small, travel-size candles that can set the mood even if you are far from home.

Why is there a need for travel candles?

As there are some things that can be out of our control when we travel, such as stale air in some B&Bs, and stuffy toilets and bathrooms, we can take the extra step to make sure that our time spent away from home is spent wisely. That is, not worrying about unwanted smells or inadequate mood settings.

This is exactly the kind of security that a travel candle brings. Wherever you decide to stay for accommodations, you are guaranteed a mood lifter or a fragrant scent when you pack a travel candle in your luggage. Just remember to confirm with your hotel for rules about candles.
