Although not needed in today’s modern age, living by candlelight in the evenings helps quiet the mind and as the Dane’s would say give you that Hygge feeling.
When we introduce candles into our daily life we can control the pace of our mind and our environment.
Candles + Self Care
Some Reasons To Keep Burning Your Candles
1. CALMS THE MIND
Floral aroma like lavender and herbal aromas like peppermint have been proven useful in the treatment of various physiological disorders through aromatherapy - specifically burning an aromatherapy candle. The body and mind react significantly to scent.
2. IMPROVES MOODS
Scented candles can induce calm and alleviate stress. Some candles are even specifically created to support positive moods.
3. STIMULATES MEMORIES
Scent, emotion and memory are inexplicably intertwined. Scent can trigger the limbic system in the brain that is home to memory and emotions. It's truly amazing what our bodies/brain can do and remember. Even down to the smallest scent triggering memories.
Burning candles as part of your daily ritual can have a positive impact on your mental health.
