There’s no denying it: we are living in stressful times. And as if we don’t have enough to worry about, such as the crazy crime rate, intermittent load shedding, gender-based violence and inequality, we are now *also* in the grips of what President Cyril Ramaphosa has declared a ‘national disaster’, COVID-19. This has resulted in much of the South African workforce going into self-isolation and working from home to try and prevent this disease from spreading. Something that you can do to help ease your mind and elevate your home office is to light up some scented candles. And we’ve got suggestions!

Keep calm and put a candle on

Candles are great, especially the sweet-smelling variety. Not only do they come in handy when Eskom decides to flip the switch, but they can also improve your mood, help you to gain mental clarity but also make your pad smell like a dream.
