As a certified morning person, I love it when I get to start my day with a good cup of coffee. It uplifts my mood and definitely helps with my productivity. In fact, pre-pandemic, part of my morning routine would be to drop by a cafe and grab a cup of joe before going to the office. Iba talaga yung feeling when you're inside a coffee shop—the ambience and the aroma of a morning brew just seem to go so, so well together. But since staying home is the best option for now, there's actually another way for you to recreate the same vibe. Case in point: scented candles. If like me, you miss going out for a caffeine fix, read on for a few of our scented candle recos that will take you back to your happy place. :)
