Candles are scientifically proven to soothe us. The gentle, mesmerising quality of their light makes them a perfect aid for any relaxation routine.
The low light that comes from a candle is captured by your sight and sent straight to your brain for processing. Because of our associations with candlelight, the body begins to relax – helping how we feel emotionally and physically.
Some of the perks of feeling more relaxed include more energy, better sleep, enhanced immunity, less pain and a more pleasant personality.
A scented candle offers additional benefits – reaching yet another one of our senses, smell. We all have our trigger scents; scents that make us feel good and scents that remind us of unpleasant or unhappy times.
By choosing a scent we find relaxing, or a scent known for its calming properties, you can enhance your candlelight experience.
You can also use scents to energise you or help you focus, or simply just to have a beautiful smell around your enviroment
