What are the benefits of therapeutic candles?

Are you craving more harmony and balance in your life? What better way than to reap the benefits of therapeutic candles. Almost everyone can agree that coming home to a nice smelling environment is important. Scented candles can cover a multitude of sins by releasing a pleasant aroma. Some people simply include them in their home as a form of decoration on their coffee table, put them on top of a cake as a symbol of celebration or light them to signify romance. But can scented candles do more than just that? The answer is yes and we are about to show you how…


Candles, and in particular, therapeutic candles are created with a combination of essential oils. By burning therapeutic candles a small but continuous stream of aroma is released into the atmosphere as the herbal and floral essential oils evaporate. Depending on the particular blend of essential oils in the candle, the scent can trigger or enhance different emotions and moods. For example, a combination of Chamomile, Neroli and Mandarin has a de-stressing effect or a mixture of Grapefruit, Lemon, Myrtle and Spearmint creates an uplifting atmosphere.



How do therapeutic candles help your sleep?

A good night’s sleep is one of the most important things you can achieve in your day. How well you sleep is usually reflected in your well-being, productivity and energy levels the next day. So what can you do to ensure you are getting the best z’s you possibly can? The answer is therapeutic candles. Lighting a scented candle as you are winding down for bed can cast a soft light across your bedroom can evoke a sense of warmth and light that can eliminate the need for a harsh electric light bulb. Combine this with the infamous sleepy scents of Lavender, Ylang Ylang and Palmarosa and you have a winning formula. All of these benefits can be found in our SLEEP WELL Aromatherapy Candles, so what are you waiting for...

As with everything else in life, we all have our own opinions and favourites. Some people love pineapple on pizza, some people don’t! And scented candles are no different. Just because your friend doesn’t like your Sandalwood, Frankincense and Lime Candle, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. Through scent association, the aroma of your favourite therapeutic candle can make a space your own. By using a scent that you love, you can turn a space into a home. Adding a touch of nature's pure perfume to surroundings is a perfect way to add your individual touch.


How do therapeutic candles benefit your health?

Essential oils are well-loved in the beauty community for the benefits they can bring to your skin. If you want to learn more about their benefits you can read our blog on the ‘20 Essential Oils You Need in Your Skincare Routine’. In additional to the topical uses of essential oils, they can also be used in scented therapeutic candles with the benefits being reaped through the inhalation of their aroma. Mental health is an important aspect of our overall health and taking care of your mind is just as important as taking care of our body. Lighting a therapeutic candle can promote a sense of well-being and calm, as well as being a powerful anxiety and stress buster. If you ever feel overwhelmed with these negative feelings, the soft candlelight and the scent of essential oils burning can centre your mind and allow you to feel calmer and more relaxed. Our DE-STRESS Candle includes all three calming essential oils; Chamomile, Neroli and Manderin.


Romance

The soft flickering lighting given off by a candle casts a romantic atmosphere that no lightbulb can compare to. With scented therapeutic candles, this feeling of love can be enhanced by aromatherapy. The particular blend of essential oils Rose, Patchouli and Cedarwood create an aroma that enhances sensuality and emotional connectivity. What could be a more perfect companion for times when you want to feel connected with your loved ones physically or emotionally.
