Self-care has become more important in recent times as people have become cognizant of their mental health than ever. Creating the right ambiance could go a long way in determining how effective one’s daily routine is, which is why candles and fragrances are the new favorite in self-care.
This month, top beauty influencer, Jackie Aina, launched a brand new line of scented candles called FORVR Mood. Each scented candle has its own unique blend of good vibes and positive moods. They are eco-friendly, made of 100% coconut soy wax that burns up to 65 hours and are free of sulfates or parabens. Each candle scent has a message and attitude.
FORVR Mood is a woman-owned, self-care afro business for the regular-degular girl. The brand is in about self-care embodied with fragrance. For Jackie, it is really about a particular lifestyle, teaching women how to take care of themselves first. According to her, “you can’t help someone else until you’re good. So get good, and then worry about other people.” She says, “I feel, especially as a Black woman, we need to care more about self-care. We take on so much in our day-to-day lives. I’m used you seeing ‘rise and grind’ twitter messaging everywhere. Adding that, “A big part of what’s helping me get through the pandemic are candles.”
Here are the four candles as described directly from FORVR:
