Getting to the bottom of scents in the home with Jo Glanville-Blackburn
Ever wondered why your candle always pools in the middle or why they send up smoke signals even before you blow them out? Well, todays guest shares all!
If you’re going to ask anyone about which scents work best in the home it’s got to be a beauty editor. Today’s guest has written countless features on fragrance. She knows her Chypre from her Fougère and has just launched her very own candle collection JOGBliving.com. Just wait till she shares about blending the aromas and the effect they can have on your mood. Jo shares so much about the way we can improve our well being in this lively episode which was a pleasure to record. I learnt so much from Jo and only ever burn natural candles after this discussion. Have a listen and you’ll soon see why.
