It’s been proven that candles can help to soothe us. The gentle, ethereal quality of their light makes them a perfect aid for relaxation and can completely transform our mood.
A candle’s flame will create harmony and soothe your soul – reducing stress and increasing self-awareness. The soft, tranquil light helps us to calm down and can even enable us to reach a meditative state. One of the most powerful ways to enjoy the beauty of candlelight is during a moment of stillness and solitude, when you turn off the world and simply tune into yourself.
But how does a candle flame help to calm us down and quieten our minds?
Your eyes view the soft, gentle light that comes from a candle, and send the image to your brain for processing. Because we naturally associate candlelight with warmth and cosiness, the body begins to relax – changing how we feel emotionally and physically.
A scented candle offers even more benefits, as it reaches yet another one of our senses - smell. We all have our trigger scents; scents that make us feel happy and scents that might remind us of more unpleasant times, so why not create the perfect mood by choosing one of our candle scents and creating a new association between that particular fragrance and the feeling of calm and relaxation.
Once you’ve chosen the scent you like, you can add it to various aspects of your daily routine so you’re able to create a moment of peace and tranquility whenever and wherever you need it.
