The health benefits of lighting candles

Hello everyone!

Candles have been used for centuries in homes all over the world. Of course, before electricity, they were necessary to light homes in the evenings. Today, a candle is not just a piece of decor or a source of light. Candles can instantly add a beautiful fragrance and a soothing vibe.

So what are the benefits of lighting candles in your home? Here are some of them:

Creates ambience - Lighting a candle for prayer (or meditation), a bath, or dinner is a common practice for setting the right mood. 

Create a warm glow -The flickering of candlelight produces an ambience that simply cannot be replicated. Adding candles will instantly make a home feel warm and welcoming.

Calms the mind - Lighting candles can provide the perfect atmosphere to induce calm and a sense of well-being. Burning candles can help with anxiety

Stimulates memory - Our sense of smell is strongly tied with memory, so we often associate a specific scent with a moment or a memory.

Supports a restful sleep - The blue light admitted from the screens can make you feel less tired and more anxious. Switching your light off earlier and lighting candles can help you feel calmer earlier in the evening and reset your natural sleep rhythms. 

Alleviates stress - Aromatherapy candles release a calming fragrance that will help you feel rested and peaceful. They are also a way to subtly add fragrance to your home.  

Candles are great finishing touches to any room of the house. 



Safety first!

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Burn candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Do not light candles on or near anything that may catch fire.
  • Protect surfaces, which may be damaged by heat.
  • Burn candles away from any draughts.

Candles made from soy wax are soot free, non-toxic, burn clean, and last much longer than traditional paraffin. Due to the lack of soot and toxins released into the air, soy wax candles have a stronger scent profile than paraffin wax candles. 

Have an awesome day!
