Chesapeake Bay Candles

Happy Monday everyone!

Do you use candles for decor? Not only do candles give a wonderful aroma but I believe it also sets an atmosphere. I have teamed up with Chesapeake Bay Candles because it is a brand that I love and stand by! These candles are therapeutic and displays mindful relaxation. I also admire that Chesapeake Bay Candles are made with soy wax and essential oils! Safe and soothing.

I recieved my first Chesapeake Bay Candle from my aunt for Christmas. Specifically, the Balance + Harmony. The scent was incredible! I would have to say it is my most-lit candle, the smell of pear and waterlily is so refreshing! Chesapeake Bay Candle provides scent, style, and ambiance.
