Candles provide the ambiance consumers need to unwind

Since March, consumers have sought products that offer a sense of comfort to make their at-home time feel more cozy. Candles, while always a popular category, have captured consumers’ attention even more to provide that comforting ambience. It is estimated that the COVID-19 impact on the scented candles market is “likely to touch $4.22 billion between 2020 and 2024,” according to a report by Market Research Future (MRFR). The report indicated that other factors are adding to the expected market growth as well, such as an increased use of candles as aromatherapy to help with relaxation and stress relief, and shoppers are spending more on home décor investments.

Here is a selection of candles that will provide a comforting scent to your store and customers’ homes, or as the new Stonewall Homes candles attest, these candles will ignite your sense of adventure.
