How to Choose the Right Candle for Different Moods & Settings

How to Choose the Right Candle for Different Moods & Settings

Candles are like a secret weapon for the vibes of your environment. They can change the atmosphere of any room, enhance any mood, and set the scene for any occasion. But with so many options, it can be tough to choose which candle is best for each situation. Don't worry, we're here to help you navigate the world of candle vibes and help you pick the right candle for your situation.

First and foremost, let’s consider the mood you're trying to set. Are you looking for a candle that will help you relax & unwind after a long day? Opt for a candle with Eucalyptus as a key ingredient. Eucalyptus fragrance is well known for promoting relaxation and elevating your mood. At Thomas Brothers Candle Co, our Eucalyptus + Mint candle would be the perfect candle to unwind & relax with.

Want to create a romantic atmosphere for a date night? Light up a candle with calming and invigorating floral notes of Lavender, Jasmine, or Rose with a touch of Sandalwood or Amber. At Thomas Brothers, we have the perfect candle for your romantic setting: Lavender + Amber. It’s so good, we guarantee you’ll get a yes for another date if you burn our candle on your date (Just messing, we can’t guarantee that - BUT we feel confident it will help a lot 🤪).

How about a candle for focus, concentration, and work? Any candle with a citrus fragrance paired with a spice or green fragrance will do the trick to help put & keep you in a state of flow. Our personal recommendation would be our Peppercorn + Citrus candle or our Citrus + Basil candle. We heard rumors that if you consistently burn our candles while working from home, you’ll at least 2-3x your income over the year (JK - but maybe not JK? 🤔😎).

Lastly, how about a candle for just vibing and hanging out? We’d recommend snagging a candle that has any combination of warm woods, bright citrus, pine & evergreen, or leather & mahogany. Last shameless plug here - we have 2 candles that we think fit the vibing & hanging category perfectly (so much so, that these 2 candles are our personal favorites and some of our top sellers). Leather + Suede and Bergamot + Oud. Trust us - you won’t be disappointed. 

Choosing the right candle is all about understanding the occasion, mood, and setting. So next time you're shopping for your next candle, take a moment to think about what kind of vibe you want to achieve. 

Whether you're looking to relax, set the mood, focus, or make a statement, we’ll have the perfect candle for your needs at Thomas Brothers Candle Co. Made only with the highest quality & 100% organic ingredients, we think you’ll find your next favorite candle with us (and support amazing non-profits doing super cool things across the world!)
