A scent can take your mind on an adventure, dig up precious memories, and alert your senses to a new high. Whether it’s a familiar scent or a brand new one, there’s nothing more relaxing than savoring the fragrance of life. To make your home and your space a soothing atmosphere, candles are the classic way to deliver scents that fit your personality or give you the qualities you need at that moment. Chesapeake Bay Candle has been providing consumers with a wide array of candles, fragrance carriers, and accessories for over 20 years, making them one of the most popular candle brands around the world.
The Back Story
David Wang and Mei Xu embarked on an entrepreneurial journey after leaving their day jobs to start a gift and home decor business. After a successful show that prompted the most interest in their candles and left them with an overwhelming number of new customers and orders, they were selling their products quickly and passionately.
Once they decided to start creating bold colored candles with a mottled texture, based on the design inspiration they found at a gift show in Germany, they needed to find a brand name that would stand out just as much as their striking candles. Chesapeake Bay Candle was named after the beauty and peacefulness of the Chesapeake Bay shoreline near David and Mei’s home.
Over a short period of time, the brand grew quickly and sold countless amounts of products, earning them recognition by Inc. Magazine as one of Americas fastest growing privately owned enterprises. They are now excited to be working right in the US with their Maryland based factory that was established a few years ago, bringing genuine tribute to their namesake.
Chesapeake Bay Candle currently has four collections:
One of their newer collections is the Mind & Body, that we love for so many reasons. Available in eight different scents with products ranging from reed diffusers to pillar candles and more, you can establish the ultimate soothing environment in your home or office space with any fragrance from this collection.
Mind & Body Collection
The health and wellness trend that has been sweeping through the nation also has landed on home products, specifically candles and smell-goods. Chesapeake Bay Candle has harnessed the power of aromatherapy, along with the characteristics that today’s women and men want to achieve in their wellness journey. Naming each product to go alongside its multi-note scent stirs up a mindset for the person enjoying the fragrance, allowing them to experience “Peace + Tranquility” or “Reflection + Clarity”.
The Reed Diffuser Set in Balance + Harmony is a refreshing and harmonious blend of tropical fruits and coconut, fresh flower petals, and orange essential oils. Unlike many reed diffusers, where it’s near impossible to remove the plug on the bottle, this set simply contains an empty frosted bottle and a separate twist off bottle containing the fragrance. Pour the fragrance into the bottle, and the wooden lid softly sits on top.
Place this diffuser in your bathroom for a pleasant greeting every time you enter, or in your living room to restore balance and harmony to the space.
The candles in Chesapeake Bay Candle’s Mind & Body Collection all tell a story, one that is reflected in both the complex fragrances and in the frosted glass containers.
The “Peace + Tranquility” candle emits a soothing fragrance of cashmere jasmine, while the white glass color stands for a symbol of purity, tranquility, and a safe space.
The “Reflection + Clarity” candle fills the air with the refreshing scent of sea salt sage, while the blue glass represents the sea and sky, which is always soothing to the mind and body.
The “Joy + Laughter” candle gives off a sweet, fun smell of cranberry dahlia, and the pink glass is mood-lifting, bringing you happiness and a youthful spirit.
All the jar candles come in various sizes, and are a soy wax blend with a lead-free cotton wick, delivering a clean burn. The natural wooden lids with the burned in Chesapeake Bay Candle logo give an earthy vibe and a polished, finished look to a perfectly giftable candle.
It’s time to make every room in your home a soothing spot to be, and the simple act of lighting a candle can do just that. Breathe in the love, and exhale your renewed spirit.
