An average week day morning for our family goes as follows:
The kids come into our bedroom at 6am and ask if they can go downstairs to watch TV and eat cereal- we say yes. My husband’s alarm then goes off at 7am and he hits the snooze button. It then goes off at 7:30am and he hits the snooze button again. Ten minutes later I wake up in a panic like, we need to get everyone ready to leave now!
We then hustle to get the kids dressed, get lunches made, make coffee and barely have a few sips before racing out the door. I walk my daughter to school and then stop at the park for my youngest to play. I then pry her away from the playground twenty minutes later to get back home so I can get things done in the house.
When I get through the door, what I see is not far from catastrophic. The kids’ pyjamas are strewn all over the floor. The kitchen is a mess from breakfast and making lunches. I am on high alert as I create my to-do list and then realize I still have work to do for Maturing Mama as well.
In a moment like this when there is so much to do and I don’t know where to start. I first light a candle. It seems counter productive but I kid you not, it increases productivity. Usually it’s a morning smell that makes the air smell clean and makes me feel energized.
This smell changes my surrounding and helps me calm down and focus. It even makes my home seem less overwhelming and more inviting.
After lighting a candle I am more inclined to focus on writing for Maturing Mama without being distracted by the mess. I’m also more inclined to clean because my home doesn’t seem as chaotic. This candle will literally change the atmosphere in my home, as candles should.
One candle with this intent in mind is Elevated Ambiance, created by Adriona. Here she is to tell us more about Elevated Ambiance and how her scented candles can elevate your home, surrounding and mood.
- In today’s world, why do you believe it is important to elevate the mood in our space? (Especially in today’s world).
Although a lot of people aren’t necessarily living in quarantine like we were when COVID first started, a lot of us are still spending more time at home than we usually do. For that reason, it’s important to do whatever we can to spice up the atmosphere to make it more enjoyable and comfortable.
Even for those who aren’t spending more time at home these days, it’s still important because with everything going on in the world today, whatever “home” is should be our safe place where we feel the most comfortable and at peace.
Lighting a good candle (and playing a song that coincides with the scent) can help us achieve that.

- What can customers be assured of in terms of quality of your products?
Elevated Ambiance candles are always made with 100% soy wax, non-toxic fragrances, and cotton wicks.
Using those materials ensures that toxins won’t be released into the air when the candles are burned. Soy wax also burns slowly, so the life of an Elevated Ambiance candle will be longer than a traditional paraffin wax or soy blend candle.
