From September onwards, summer slowly fades away and we start to see the beautiful orange, red and gold leaves falling from the woodland trees.
The longing for Pumpkin lattes, cooler evenings and cosy nights by the fire start to creep in and the indulgent scents of autumn leaves, marshmallow, caramel and pumpkin spice takeover from the sweet smells of summer.
The long days get shorter and snuggly jumpers and fluffy scarfs become your daily comforts. Autumn is a very special season filled with colour and fragrance and the last time to fully enjoy the outdoors before the cold winter.

Ways to relax in autumn
During the summer months we adapt to different ways of relaxing such as sitting in the sun whilst reading a book. As the colder months start to creep in and the darker nights, we need to find different, more cosy ways to relax.
Here are our top tips to relax and unwind this autumn:
Try to wake up earlier than usual
As the dark nights start to creep in, we may start to miss the longer days with plenty of sunlight. By getting up early it gives you a chance to enjoy some sunlight before you start your tasks for the day. It’s also known that those who wake up earlier have a more productive day.
Make time for friends and family
It’s easy to stay indoors while it’s cold and dark inside, but socialising it’s just as important in autumn as it is in summer. Socialising can enhance your mental health, physical health and increase your sense of belonging.
Listen to some feel good music
Listening to music has the ability to improve your mood, and whether that’s to relax, or to have fun and a dance around, it’s sure to keep you feeling positive this autumn.
Choose your food carefully
Sometimes when it’s cold and dark in the evenings and we’ve had a busy day at work, it seems much easier to order a takeaway. However when you eat healthy food this will keep your energy up, and also help your mental health, which is imperative in the darker months of the year.
Go for autumn walks regularly
Autumn is one of the most beautiful times of year! The leaves are changing, the air is crisp and fresh but not too cold. Going for walks is a quick and easy way to boost endorphins.
Run a bath
Running a nice warm bath is one of the loveliest ways to relax on a cold autumn evening. Make it even more relaxing by using a scented bath bomb and lighting one of our crackling wood wick candles.
Invest in some cosy blankets
There’s nothing better than coming in from the cold to a nice warm house with a cosy blanket. Make the experience even more cosy with a mug of hot chocolate or mulled wine. Delicious!
Light your favourite seasonal wax melt
Having your home smell of pumpkin spice, toasted marshmallow or warm gingerbread is one of the most warming feelings in the colder months. Try it and see how often your guests comment on the lovely smell when they walk through your door!
Village Wax Melts have a variety of relaxing products, so why not treat yourself or a loved one this autumn.
