We are in a new house and finally getting settled. The first thing on the to-do list? Revamping mine and my husband’s personal spaces. In this house, we decided to turn our fourth bedroom into a man cave. He’s stoked. For me, I’m turning my space into a minimalistic blogging slash yoga work area. I always have too many things on my desk so I’m hoping my plan will help maximize my space and minimize my stress.
The one item that I knew I needed in my space was Chesapeake Bay Candles. Chesapeake Bay Candle has curated a Mind & Body line of home fragrances that were inspired by our ever-evolving health trends. Chesapeake Bay Candle believes that everyone needs to slow down and find time for themselves. Their overall goal is to help people reach a state of balance and peace inside themselves. From yoga to organic products to an outdoor adventure, Chesapeake Bay Candle has hit the nail on the head.
The Mind & Body Collection
When I received my box of the Mind & Body collection candles and cut the tape, the aroma of the line immediately grabbed my attention. They all smelled amazing and calming all at the same time. Every new candle I pulled out had me falling in love over and over again. The line comes in different sizes and scents and are perfect stress reducers. Best part? These candles are made with an all natural soy wax blend which means they burn clean! Oh, and the natural wooden lids and frosted glass couldn’t be more up my alley.
Side note, all of these candles are designed, made, and poured in the USA. Whoop, whoop! They also have a lead-free wick. #cleanair
Confidence + Freedom – Oak Moss Amber
Confidence + Freedom is a more musky scent with aromatic lavender and sage being brushed by white cedar and oak moss. Intensified with warm amber, oriental spice, and sensual patchouli, the fragrance reveals a touch of elegance and confidence. The candle contains all natural Copaiba, Fir, Lemon, and Patchouli essential oils as well. This was one of my husband’s favorite candles and he couldn’t wait to light it up!

Simplicity + Hope – Mint Basil
If you’re anything like me, you’re reading this and thinking mint basil? Really? Yes, really! I never in my life would have even considered sniffing this candle but I’m so glad I did. Simplicity + Hope is an invigorating, herbal first impression of mint leaves and lime elevates spirits. All natural essential oils like Orange Terpenes and Patchouli paired with lavender, rose bloom, aromatic eucalyptus, green foliage, and spearmint revive the soul. Its beautiful green frosted glass is the perfect color to evoke the beauty of nature when lighting this candle.
Balance + Harmony – Water Lily & Pear
Balance + Harmony is a combination of juicy tropical fruits, ripened peach, and delicious pear. This was my husband’s other favorite scent. I really loved the scent of creamy coconut and the aqua color brings a sense of balance to your interior. With Orange essential oil, rose, violet, water lily, and cyclamen all wrapped up into one, you can bring the outdoors in.
Strength + Energy – Pineapple Coconut
You all KNOW this has my name ALL over it! Strength + Energy couldn’t be more perfect for my yoga practice. I smelled this candle and couldn’t put it down afterward. Take my favorite scents of mango, pineapple, coconut, grapefruit, bergamot, and verbena to energize the senses. Surprisingly this fruity fragrance is actually based with an amber and musky vanilla. The orange, grapefruit, and lime essential oils bring a burst of energy to any room.
If you’re interested in picking up the line for yourself, please do. You can embrace your mind & body with such ease with Chesapeake Bay Candle. My little workspace has found its balance and I couldn’t be more grateful.
