  1. Benefits of Wax Melts

    Posted on

    Wax melts are a popular alternative to traditional candles, and there are several reasons why people choose to use them:

    1. Long-lasting fragrance: Wax melts provide a longer-lasting fragrance than traditional candles because they slowly release the scent over time. This means you can enjoy the aroma for longer without having to replace the wax melt.

    2. Safer: Wax melts are safer than candles because they don't produce an open flame (if using an electric burner). This makes them a great option for people with children or pets, or for those who are concerned about fire hazards.

    3. Easy to use: Wax melts are simple to use. All you need is a wax warmer or burner, and you can quickly and easily change out the wax melts whenever you want to switch up the scent.

    4. Wide variety of scents: Wax melts come in a vast range of scents, from floral to fruity to spicy and even novelty scents too. This means you can find a scent that suits your mood or your home decor.

    5. Cost-effective: Wax melts are an affordable alternative to traditional candles. Because they last longer, you won't need to replace them as frequently, which can save you money in the long run.

    Overall, wax melts offer a safer, easy-to-use, cost-effective, and long-lasting way to enjoy fragrance within your home.

  2. Home Fragrance Tips

    Posted on

    Home fragrance is an essential part of making a house feel like a home.

    The scent of a room can affect the mood and ambiance of the space and those in it. But don't let that feel like a daunting task as finding the perfect fragrance can be a fun and enjoyable process. In this blog post, we will explore the different types of home fragrances available (and i'm not just giving Leaf & Lake Co product options so as to give more variety and choice to you) and provide tips on how to choose the right scent for your home.

    Types of Home Fragrances:

    1. Candles: Candles are one of the most popular home fragrance choice, globally. They come in a variety of scents, sizes, and shapes. Candles can be placed almost anywhere in the home. And, if well made then the scent can last for several hours. Some popular candle scents include lavender, vanilla, and citrus.

    2. Reed Diffusers: Reed diffusers are a popular alternative to candles. Especially for the homes which have children in and so want to minimize risk by not having an open flame around. Reed diffusers consist of a bottle of scented oil and reed sticks. The reed sticks absorb the oil and release the scent into the air. Reed diffusers are a great choice for those who want a continuous fragrance without the need to light a candle.

    3. Room Sprays: Room sprays are an easy and convenient way to freshen up a room quickly. They come in a variety of scents and can be used in any room of the home. Although room sprays provide an instant burst of scent, using them as a way to fragrance over longer periods of time would be unsuccessful.

    4. Wax Melts: Wax melts are similar to candles but do not have a wick. They are placed in a wax warmer, and the heat from the warmer melts the wax, releasing the fragrance into the air. Wax melts, like the ones at Leaf & Lake Co are on the rise in popularity amongst those who wish to inject home fragrance as part of their home style. 

    Choosing the Right Home Fragrance:

    Choosing the right home fragrance can be a daunting task. Here are some tips to help you find the perfect scent for your home:

    1. Consider the room: Different scents work better in different rooms. For example, lavender or chamomile scents are great for the bedroom, while citrus or floral scents work well in the kitchen or living room.

    2. Think about the season: Seasonal scents are a fun way to add a festive touch to your home. For example, pumpkin spice or cinnamon scents are perfect for fall, while peppermint or pine scents are great for winter.

    3. Test different scents: Before committing to a scent, test it out first. You can do this by purchasing a small candle or reed diffuser to try out in your home. Or, at Leaf & Lake Co, a sample pack of melts.

    4. Consider your personal preferences: Ultimately, the scent you choose should be one that you enjoy. Don't be afraid to try out different scents until you find one that you love.

    5. What mood do you want: Using scent to influence and create the right mood can be a real game changer for your space. Have a look at this handy guide for tips on what scent you should choose for the mood you want to have.

    In conclusion, home fragrance is an important aspect of making a house feel like a home. With so many options available, it can be a fun and enjoyable process to find the perfect scent for your home. By considering the room, season, and your personal preferences, you can find a fragrance that creates the ambiance you desire and give your home character at the same time.
