Breathe candle , was designed with many points in mind. I wanted to make the candle good for stuffy summer and winter rooms. Plus there is always those times, when you just need to take a few moments to yourself and inhale and exhale the days stress away.

It can also help to keep insects and flies away in your home, so great for summer!
