I can’t believe it’s already the middle of July; it seems like just weeks ago we were counting down to the new year. The older I get, the more I realize how quickly time flies! It’s funny because sometimes the days can feel like they drag on forever, but the weeks seem to go by so quickly. Kind of a paradox of sorts. In this day in age, things have been moving at lightning speed and so efficiently that it can be easy to forget to take a step back. Our mental health could really benefit from making time…

This month has been one of those months where everything has just been so hectic. I don’t know what’s in the water lately but business has picked up immensely! It’s just the art director and me that make up the design department at our company, and we have two very large web design projects going on simultaneously.

A few weeks ago, I noticed I was feeling a bit more stressed than usual and was losing sleep because of it. Desperate to find a (natural) cure, I googled some ways that I could help myself feel more calm. It didn’t take long before something stood out immediately: aromatherapy. The idea of aromatherapy was very intriguing – could certain scents really help me feel at ease? How could I introduce myself to these scents without being overwhelmed by how strong they can be? What’s waxy, smells good, and lights up a whole room? Oh yeah…a candle. While looking around online for natural…
