It's the Coziest Winter EVER with the Hygge Collection!
Posted on January 19 2020
Why choose bland and boring when fun is always an option? So many of us (guilty as charged with the rainy, weird January we’re having in the Buckeye state), choose to let winter bog us down and steal our joy. But winter doesn’t have to be so “blah”...
Instead of accepting our fate of being locked inside only to leave, and put pants on, by social pressure, creating an indoor experience for yourself is a great way to make the most of this “hibernation” season. Enter the danish concept of hygge.
Hygge is the concept of mastering coziness personalized to YOU. It’s enjoying the simple things in life and being present in cozy moments. It’s where thoughtful and intentional meets cozy, and it creates GLORIOUS moments in the dreary winter. Hygge is the perfect mix of amplifying coziness indoors and taking life as it comes. Hygge may sound like it means adopt a hermit lifestyle, but it actually encourages at-home entertaining without the superficial stress. In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing tips on incorporating hygge into your home.
Cultivated Candle Co. had it’s first Hygge Collection last year and we loved applying this concept to dull winter months so much that we had to bring it back again this year. Candles are a key part of Danish hygge because of the warm glow and we take our spin on hygge by mixing aromatherapy in. We all know the feeling of going from 0 to 100 in happiness/coziness/contentment/all the good things from the simple spark of aroma.
This year we added a fun theme to our Hygge Collection. Not only did the collection size increase in scents, it’s inspired by the “me decade” of the ‘70s.

The 2020 Hygge Collection incorporates hygge as comparable to the bohemian vibes and self-care of the ‘70s, while still meshing the simple pleasures of floral, farmhouse and modern plant-lady from the 21st century.
The six hand-blended aromas from the Hygge Collection are made to relax, invigorate and enjoy “me time”. There’s a cozy scent for everyone in the Hygge Collection from Minted Lavender, to Oats ‘n Honey, to Grapefruit Grove and more. The signature frosted green jars create a soothing glow while burning and are designed with happy ‘70s patterns perfect for a winter pick-me-up. We got the line-up for you below!
The Dried Eucalyptus Candle blends the herbal aroma of dried eucalyptus, tarragon leaves and bergamot with subtle notes of minty fresh eucalyptus and oakmoss. Dried eucalyptus is a spa-like, herbal aroma different from the well-known fresh eucalyptus. It’s AMAZING and not easy to find in the home fragrance world, so we had to make a Dried Eucalyptus Candle! This candle is fresh, aromatic and clean.
The Grapefruit Grove Candle blends fresh ruby red grapefruit, white grapefruit, mandarin and bamboo for a seriously invigorating aroma. This blend was made to truly share the dynamic aroma of grapefruit with earthy elements. This candle is fruity, earthy and fresh.
The Peachy Eucalyptus Candle blends a strong base note of fresh peaches with the traditional minty aroma of fresh eucalyptus, plus a hint of spearmint. The aroma of juicy, ripened peach combined with a soft mint makes this an extraordinarily unique aroma. This candle is fruity, sweet and fresh.
The Minted Lavender Candle blends earthy lavender flowers with fresh peppermint and spearmint sprigs. It’s a lavender candle for all - Whether a lavender lover or loather. This clean yet floral aroma instantly makes an interior feel more cozy, fresh and clean. This candle is smooth, earthy and clean.
The Oats ‘n Honey Candle blends soft honey, oats, creamy vanilla soy milk and nutty almond. Imagine being in the coziest farmhouse kitchen ever - That’s what the Oats ‘n Honey Candle smells like! This candle is warm, cozy and clean.
The Cedar Forest Candle blends pine, cedarwood and sweet balsam for a true woodsy aroma. There’s just something about the aroma of the woods in the winter and the Cedar Forest candle encompasses this in a big way! This candle is woodsy and fresh.
