Have you ever considered the impact that scent can create in a room?

Creating an overall ambient feeling combines colour, texture and most importantly scent. Scent awakens another undertone of your home and can create a warming, relaxing mood.

Here’s a little food for thought.

The soothing effect that candles or diffusers have are based on how the brain processes smells. The smell of scented candles stimulates our limbic system, the part of the brain that is home to our memory and emotions. Hormones like serotonin and dopamine can be produced to help regulate mood.

This is why it is equally important to create a room that is filled with a beautiful scent that elevates your mood both consciously and subconsciously.

With so many Scented Candles on the market, where do you go? Here’s the thing, there’s nothing stopping you from popping to Aldi or Lidl for a scented candle…but remember that old saying… “Quality over Quantity?”

I hear you saying, “why does it matter? It’s just a candle.”

I’ve been in your shoes before trying out a host of different brands. As I’ve understood more about scent and ambience, I started to explore unique scent combinations to really bring out the best of my room. That’s when I came across EKA.

EKA has beautiful blends pulled together to really enhance the “feel” of a room. The combinations are very unique and certainly make my home feel even more cosy! What better way to see winter in than with an aroma that creates warmth and comfort.

They’re bespoke scented candles are lovingly made in the UK, from 100% natural soy wax with a blend of carefully selected essential oils. I love that the soy wax burns cleanly, with no toxins or carcinogens – plus, if you spill a little it’s much easier to clean up than paraffin wax. The wick is made from natural cotton, too.

What’s not to love! To tie it all in I added the Agate Stone Coasters to my decor and I just love the total combination. I even selected a bespoke message on my candles to make them personalised to me. Check out the video below and let me know what’s your favourite!

There are so many beautiful fragrances available, I’ve pulled together my favourite ones which you can explore on EKA!

It wouldn’t be EKA without Katie who has dedicated so much time in creating these beautiful candles and reed diffusers. Here’s what Katie had to say:

“After years of working in the fashion and gifting industry, I wanted to create my own brand that would make it easier for people to celebrate the simple things in life, and make them smile. I’m as guilty as anybody of getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and I think it is so important to stop and take a moment for yourself. From this new mission of mine, EKA was born.

Inspired by Indian influences in my family, I absolutely love vibrant Eastern block printing and bold colours. I take scents and visual cues from all over the world to create EKA’s collection of bespoke candles and gifts, all designed to evoke a unique feeling of happiness.

Take a chance on really elevating your home to another level! What better way to do this than with a scent that means ONE – EKA. It’s a word that means ‘one’, ‘unified’, ‘no other’ in Sanskrit. Because EKA believes in coming together to embrace all the things that make us different. These beautiful treasures of human nature that make you…well, you. That’s why Katie created a range of personalised and bespoke scented candles and gifts that celebrate the fact that no person, no relationship and no friendship is ever the same. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.”
