The Minimalist, Clean Soy Candles That Energize Me at 5AM: Brooklyn Candle Studio is Life-Changing


August 21, 2023

Like everyone else in the world, I consider my room to be my very own personal haven. I'm particular about how I like it, too; the temperature has to be just right, the lighting has to be not too bright or too dark, and the music needs to be the right mood.

It may seem like a hassle, but all things considered, it's where I spend much of my "me time", which is quite a necessity. There's many things that I consider to be essential for keeping my room cozy and comfortable, but I never expected the one thing that would become the biggest game changer: candles.

Specifically, the beautifully minimalist candles that look (and smell) just out of a Pinterest daydream from Brooklyn Candle Studio.

Mind The Wax & Say Yes To Soy

One of the most important things that I consider when it comes to candles it not just the scent, but its ingredients. A lot of candles use toxic paraffin wax, which can be harmful for both the health and the environment.

With Brooklyn Candle Studio, I feel so much more relaxed burning safe candles that I can trust. The brand places emphasis on making products that are true to its missions of sustainability and clean ingredients, and its practices completely reflect that. I love that their products are petroleum-free, cruelty-free, phthalate-free, and 100% vegan- and I love that I feel good lighting it to enjoy the scents.

"For our candles, we use 100% soy wax derived from American-grown soy beans for an eco-friendly, clean burn and lead-free cotton wicks," says the brand. Not only that, Brooklyn Candle Studio uses fragrance oils that are "derived from both natural and high quality synthetic ingredients" and "source only phthalate-free fragrance oils, which means they are non-toxic to burn."

A Dreamy Aesthetic For Dream-Time

One of my favorite things about Brooklyn Candle Studio is their gorgeous aesthetic that feels timeless and classic. Just by their glass, tin, and ceramic vessels, you just feel so cozy and at home, no matter where you are.

Although the design has a minimalist aesthetic, the fragrance is completely uplifting and vibrant. "Our dreamy scents are inspired by nature and travel, moments and memories," says the brand.

If you're looking for iconic core scents that are classically nostalgic and uniquely uplifting, the Minimalist set is perfect for you. Below is our favorite candles from the Minimalist collection that you'll simply fall in love with:

Woodsy & Wild Healing In A Jar

Certain places hold such a special place in our hearts, and can evoke the best rejuvenating feelings; Palo Santo captures that healing spirit in the best way possible.

If you're looking for a scent that feels like you're taking a brisk hike somewhere in the depths of the wild forests, Palo Santo embodies the reviving energy with an herbal, smoky scent.

"We spent months collaborating with perfumers on a scent that truly recreates and honors the deep, woody richness of the sacred Palo Santo (“holy wood”) tree native to Peru, Ecuador, and many Central and South American countries," says Brooklyn Candle Studio, "Since the Incan era, the fragrant wood has been ritualistically burned to cleanse a space of bad energy, and the oil is said to have purifying and healing properties."
