Start Lighting Your Candles!


We all know that candles make a great addition to your home. While many of us love burning candles for the scent, the feel, or to add a relaxing touch, there are many other benefits that candles can provide that you may not have realized. Can’t wait to share them with you! 

If you enjoy a candle burning around you while you are doing house chores/work, you are already ahead of the game! Candles can actually help increase focus and productivity. This benefit goes hand-in-hand with the benefit of aromatherapy, since the scents are what help boost your level of focus. Some scents that can help with your focus include cinnamon, mint, orange, lemon, and rosemary. 

Certain scents have actually been shown to improve mood as well. If you are feeling down and need a pick-me-up, light some lemon or citrus scented candles, close your eyes, and relax for a while. You will be feeling better in no time!

Since candles are able to help you feel better and boost your mood, it makes sense that they can also help you alleviate stress. Many people include a candle in their self-care time because they feel as though they help them relax and destress, and they are right! The aromatherapy from candles can help reduce anxiety and depression while allowing you to relax. Scents like lavender, chamomile, and white lilac can help calm your mind, ease anxiety, and reduce stress. Destress after a long day by lighting some candles and closing your eyes for a few minutes.

Another aromatherapy benefit that candles can provide is improved sleep. Since many fragrances can help you destress and relax, it only makes sense that these scents will also help improve your sleep. Light a candle before bed, relax and meditate, and enjoy the scents of these calming essential oils. Just make sure to blow the candle out before you fall asleep!
