You know it’s happened to you before: a particular perfume evokes memories of a certain person or the smell of saltwater brings to mind a fond memory of a holiday by the beach. Scents trigger memories, which is why you should create beautiful memories at home with the right room scents. Make that possible with scented candles, but don’t just get any brand — we have several Malaysian scented candle brands to introduce.

One thing you’ll realise about these local scented candle brands is that they’re made of soy wax. What makes them better than the commercially-made paraffin candles is that they emit fewer toxins, are not as likely to trigger allergies, and burn at a lower heat. Soy candles are also vegan, as they’re made of plant-based materials instead of petroleum, like paraffin.

A growing trend in handmade candles is also wooden candlewicks. Instead of the regular string candlewicks, wooden candlewicks allegedly burns evenly, eliminating the blackened soot flames that usually happen with the former. This also means that they don’t require trimming.
