Obviously, we LOVE scented candles here at Alight Candle Company, but here are 9 reasons why YOU should love them too!
ATMOSPHERE The flicker of candlelight produces a gorgeous ambience that just can’t be replicated. Lighting a few well-placed candles in your home can really add effect and create a lovely cosy and intimate atmosphere. Adding scented candles in your home creates a softness to the light in your room and makes it feel welcoming and warm.
Scented candles are known for their soothing, healing properties and are often used by therapists such as massage therapists, to create a peaceful ambiance in their therapy rooms. Just the act of lighting a candle and seeing its gentle glow can help ease and soothe the mind. The next time you come home after a stressful day, just give it a try. Light a scented candle, watch the flame flicker and simply breathe for a few minutes.
CELEBRATION Scented candles are a wonderful way to mark celebrations such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, retirement and so much more.
Handmade scented candles make perfect gifts and are a nice treat to yourself too! Our beautifully packaged, scented soy wax candles are all hand poured in small batches and infused with a blend of organic essential oils and premium fragrance, making them a really thoughtful present for that special someone in your life.
DECOR Scented candles are a stylish way to add the finishing touch to any room in your home. Candles are very versatile and look great in every room. Bathroom candles provide a spa-like retreat, strategically placed candles throughout your living room make it cosy and calm, candles as a centerpiece on your dining room table keep romantic candlelit dinners within arms reach, and kitchen candles spark the atmosphere where we gather most often and are great for killing any unpleasant cooking odours.
However you use them, scented candles will add something special to any room.
FRAGRANCE Scented candles are a perfect way to add a gorgeous, subtle fragrance to your home. From delicious fruits, calming woods, exotic spices and invigorating florals, at Alight Candle Company we have a great selection of natural organic scents for you to choose from.
Remember, our candles are made from soy wax so are soot free, non-toxic, burn clean, and last much longer than traditional paraffin candles which produce black soot and release toxic carcinogens into the air.
GOOD MENTAL HEALTH Burning candles can be beneficial to your health. Part of living a healthy lifestyle is self-care and taking care of your mental health. Lighting scented candles can really help to induce a sense of calm and well-being, and over time you can associate lighting a candle with a time to relax. If you ever feel overwhelmed by fear or anxiety, burning scented candles can really help you feel better.
MEDITATION Lighting candles during meditation is a wonderful way to support your practice. There are many visualisation exercises and manifestation techniques that involve focusing on the flame of a burning candle while sending your intentions into the universe.
MEMORY Our sense of smell is strongly tied with memory, so we often associate a specific scent with a moment or memory. One of the joys of selling candles is when our customers share memories as they smell our fragrances.
ROMANCE Keep that spark alive in your relationship with a little candlelight: turn any dinner into a romantic, candlelit moment. Always keep candles in the bedroom so when the mood strikes, you can light it and turn up the heat - nothing enhances the moment quite like some soft lighting.
SELF-EXPRESSION Just like everyone has different tastes in fashion and music, everyone has particular fragrance preferences and everybody smells scents differently. Show off your individuality and personality by burning the scents that you love. And just like your style choices, never feel insecure about what you like. Embrace it!
