Using Candles to De-Stress

Lighting a candle to relaxDo you need an easy, enjoyable way to de-stress at the end of the day? We’re here to fill you in on a scented secret—candles! Our pure, plant-based soy candles are the perfect way to unwind and uplift.

Crafted with all-natural oils, candles have proven health and wellbeing benefits. And right now, they’re needed more than ever before.

The term “aromatherapy” dates back to 1937, but the use of essential oils to promote healing, enhance meditation and cleanse energies has been around for centuries. And it’s been gaining ground ever since. A study from 2009 reports that imbalances of psychological wellbeing such as depression can be improved with the use of scented candles and oils. That’s because certain fragrances can positively affect your hormone production, brain chemistry, and stress levels. It’s been found that scents stimulate the part of the brain connected to memory and mood. Some therapists even use scented candles in therapeutic rooms, in holistic methods.

With a blend of elevating fragrances and low flickering light, candles are incredibly relaxing. Increase your sense of calm by lighting a candle during a warm bath, while reading your favorite book, or while practicing yoga and meditation. Choose a fragrance below to suit your mood.
