Did you know that our sense of smell is the strongest out of the five senses? This is why different scents can greatly impact our moods and productivity, and why aromatherapy and home fragrances are getting more and more popular.
Imagine lighting up a nice scented candle that’s tailored entirely to your liking after a long day of work and snuggling into bed with a nice movie or good book — or perhaps even during a relaxing bath. How would that make you feel?
But where exactly can you get a candle that’s unique to you, and are they really safe? (Some studies have shown that scented candles can be toxic to human health depending on what ingredients are used, yikes.)
To help you answer those questions, we’ve done some digging into the candle making scene in Singapore and came across The Rituals Co. — a handcrafted candle store located along Kreta Ayer Road. Here, you’ll find a variety of candles made from natural ingredients and soy wax — some even infused with healing crystals to amp up the good vibes in your space (plus, they look pretty too!).
At S$65, you can also take part in a candle-making workshop where you’ll learn how to make your own candle step-by-step and go home with your very special Crystal Botanical Scented Soy Candle. Who knows, maybe you can even make use of your new skill and start making even more candles in your own time! Talk about a wholesome hobby.
The duration of the workshop is about two hours, and there is a minimum booking of at least two pax to start a class, so grab some friends to join in the fun!
Of course, if time doesn’t permit for you to partake in the workshop, you can still shop their ready-made candles and other scents like the Yuzu Lavender Crystal Candle with Citrine (from S$13), Peach Oolong Crystal Candle with Peach Moonstone (from S$13), Pear and Freesia Crystal Candle with Green Fluorite (from S$13) and many, many more options. These candles are also all handcrafted and made in small batches, so you know that a lot of love and effort goes into making them as well.
In need of some healing and looking for something fun to do? Visit The Rituals Co. and discover your new favourite scent!
