Candles and Diffusers for Your Home

As pretty as they are useful, candles are a great addition to any room in the home. The scented varieties emit a warm glow as well as a lovely muted scent to create a relaxing atmosphere wherever they are lit. For a stronger scent, diffusers are another great option. Both of these scent releasers also come in lovely receptacles that will beautifully decorate floating wall shelves, bookcases or any other flat surface.

Candle Options

There are many gorgeous candle options available at west elm to meet your every need. Choose from a wide selection of filled lights, flameless lights or plain all-purpose lights.

  • Filled candles are all-in-one options that come with a stunning holder and wax candle. The wax is poured directly into the metal or glass canister.
  • Flameless candle lights are a fantastic option for decorating as they do not require matches or a lighter. Simply fill with batteries then flip the switch to create a realistic flickering light.
  • If you already have candle holders that fit your decor, there are also many plain pillars, tapers and votives that can be placed in any holder. Since many are unscented, they can be used to add a warm glow to your dinner table without worrying about a candle scent mingling with your food.

Classic and Modern Diffusers

The secret to a great-smelling house lies with a scent diffuser. Classic versions feature a glass or metal canister and rattan reed sticks. To use, simply place your favorite essential oil and the sticks in the canister, fanning out the sticks for decorative appeal. The oil will soak into the sticks and travel upwards, dispersing the fresh aroma into the air.

There are also some modern electronic versions available. These versions come with power controls that let you adjust the diffusion level at the push of a button.

Decorate your home with pretty and practical candles and diffusers. Shop for an individual decor piece or try a coordinated scent set featuring a candle or two, a room spray and a glass bottle and rattan reed sticks to diffuse a beautiful aroma around your home. Pick up a set for yourself and a few for friends or family to give the gift of a relaxing and great-smelling home.
