Happy Wednesday everyone!  How are you all?  I'm excited for today's post.  I received these very nice aromatherapy candles from Aurorae Yoga for review on the blog and also to host my first-ever blog GIVEAWAY!  Yep, Aurorae wants to spread the love and treat one lucky reader to a candle of their choice!  Before we get into the details of the raffle, let me tell you about the candles, and a little bit about Aurorae. 

Aurorae Yoga is a fitness and wellness company based in New Jersey.  They sell the best reviewed yoga mats, yoga apparel, and yoga and meditation accessories online. (You can browse their yoga mats, bags, apparel, and other accessories here.)  There are variety of other fitness products too, like sweat towels, on-the-go bags, and resistance bands, which I'll be reviewing soon as well!  

They also have a whole aromatherapy line of products like scented mists and a variety of candles.  The candles are REALLY nice.  They're highly rated on Amazon, and I have to say I can see why.  If you're a candle person, I'd definitely give these a try.  They have 12 scents to choose from, all very rich sounding.  I got to review 2 of them: Lavender and Eucalyptus.  They both smell amazing - a subtle scent, not overwhelming at all.  I'm a huge fan of lavender scented candles to light in my bedroom when I'm winding down for the night.  It's so calming.  The Eucalyptus candle I lit in my dining/living room to give the rest of my apartment a beautiful scent.  I've burned a lot of candles in my life, and these have to be one of the cleanest-burning, low-flame ones I've tried.  Maybe that's because I haven't tried a soy candle before, but wow.  I'm impressed!  And the color of the wax is so rich.  They're really pretty to look at:
