This is the Candle That Fits Your Personality Best, According to Your Zodiac Sign
Let the stars decide.
Whether you’re a mysterious Scorpio, a romantic Cancer, or an organized Virgo, the one thing all zodiac signs have in common is our love for candles. Since aromatherapy can seriously affect our moods, the candles we pick to burn in our homes can be incredibly personal. These fragrances fill our rooms with woodsy, fresh, citrus scents and more, and they can take us from day to night and summer to winter.
As we shop for holiday gifts for our loved ones, it’s important to remember to buy things for ourselves as well, so we’ve turned to the stars to guide us while we do our treat-yourself shopping.
