If you’re anything like me, you find yourself looking for home décor trends on Pinterest and other social media platforms so that you can refresh your house every season. And recently, I’ve noticed a big trend that has been standing out on social and that is the body candles trend.
Body candles embody (pun intended) a specific aesthetic is that appealing to many different home décor types. And though many people have seen this trend mainly focusing on the female physique, the trend has grown where there are not quite a lot more types of body types and parts being shown as candles to feed into the different types of people who want to adorn their shelves with this style of candle.
Though candles are meant for burning, the body candle trend is more to decorate your home versus actually burning these candles. Not saying that you can’t and not saying that they don’t smell as fantastic as they may look, you’ll find that many who purchase a body candle get the candle to admire the beauty and for taking those cute “shelfies” that we often see on social media.
Since I’ve been turned onto this trend, I have began digging down in the different types of body candles that are sold by various home brands and on Etsy, and in this post, I’ve rounded up some of the best body candles that you can add to your home no matter your home décor aesthetic.
12 BODY CANDLES TO DECORATE YOUR HOME
With so many different decorations that you can add to each room of your house, it becomes an adventure when you’re open to adding different elements to each of your rooms. For me, I take careful consideration to what each room embodies and the stories it tells. I want people to visit our home to come into a room and see the different pieces that were picked out for the room to have the room not only take on the aesthetic of the entire house, but take on the energy of the room based on the purpose of the room. It’s a constant shifting journey as we decorate each of the rooms in our home (which you can follow on Instagram @simplyleshliving) and I take pride in how we decorate each room including adding some of these stylish body candles:
