Having a cosy and calming environment is essential for my productivity when studying and it makes the whole process more enjoyable and less stressful. I always have scented candles burning in my study, but I recently came across Sassy Wax melts and I think I have been converted in to a wax melt lover! This post is NOT sponsored, but I just had to share it with you all because I am genuinely so impressed.
How does scent influence how we feel?
Here is some scent science for you! Behavioral studies show that scent can trigger memories even more strongly than pictures, leading to increased activity in the limbic system. In the same way bad scents can make us feel uncomfortable or stressed, scents we associate with positive memories, relaxation and happiness can positively affect our mood and productivity!
Creating a calming study environment
There are certain smells I associate with feeling calm and happy. Lavender and incense is something that reminds me of my Mum and cosy nights in at home, so I was delighted when I realised that Sassy Wax do a Lavender and Nag Champa scented wax melt, a combination of beautiful incense and the flower. I have it burning right now in just one room and the whole house smells beautiful! I feel less stressed and more motivated at the end of a hard day when its burning.
I like to have lovely fragrances because of the ambiance it creates and I have been extremely impressed with the quality of these melts. As i know how to make candles and wax melts myself, I know the effort and time that goes in to getting it “just right” and I am so happy I have found a place that make affordable and luxurious scents that I would happily use over and over! Sadly, I do not have as much time because of working and studying to make my own melts, so I am incredibly happy to have found somewhere I can trust will make them to a high standard.
Room Sprays: Halls friendly
Don’t worry if you live in halls and are not allowed candles or wax melts, because they also sell room sprays! I have mountain air and marshmallow which I like to use for the bathroom and living room!
All about Sassy Wax
Sassy Shop Wax is run by Keely, a young entrepreneur, Mum and overall girl boss who spotted a gap in the market for wax melts scented like her favourite bath products. From there, she has grown a flourishing business with employed staff and creates so many incredible scents, ranging from classics like Sandalwood and Patchouli to things like Marshmallow and Praline! There is even a scent which smells like Snow Fairy and Avo Bath from Lush!
The wax has a distinct colourful appearance with biodegradable glitter that creates a magical wax pool when melted and gives off strong and long lasting fragrance. There is nothing worse than a candle that doesn’t smell like anything and you can be assured that you will get a very strong scent throw with Sassy Wax. I created a bundle for three friends and my Mum and they are all now equally obsessed.
The Sassy Wax Community
Something I did not expect about this company was the community. I have never, ever seen a community of such lovely people, coming together not only for their love of the brand, but to actually support one another through all of the things life throws at us. It adds something special to the brand that you just don’t get with chain companies and it gives off such positive vibes. There is a Facebook page of nearly 10,000 people (click here) you can join and it is sure to brighten your day. I won a £200 gift voucher in my order and was totally shocked at the generosity and loveliness from the company and its owner Keely.
