Candle Scents That Scream Thanksgiving

As soon as the leaves start to fall, I love to light candles. They are perfect for a cozy evening, especially in the fall. However, I’ve noticed a lot of seasonal scents are tailored to winter and completely brush over Thanksgiving. This article is an appreciation of scents perfect for Thanksgiving because they deserve love too. Also, Bath and Body Works currently has a sale for $10 off every candle! (as of Nov. 18) They also put on tons more for Black Friday and these are perfect gifts for the holiday season. They smell great, add an extra something to everything, and are so relaxing. You can’t ask for more.
