We often hear that all we need to do to relax is close our eyes and take a deep breath. While that is a perfect way to start, I like to take it to the next level. My favorite way to relaxall day longis to light a candle.
Plus candles can help relieve symptoms that cause discomfort. A relaxing candle can calm you, making you feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Certain candles contain fragrances that cause headaches due to the use of chemicals and/or artificial ingredients. That’s why the best choice is those infused with the essential oil derived naturally from plant sources. Natural ingredients prevent headaches and other irritation caused by unnatural ingredients.
In modern Europe, aromatherapy is practiced by licensed physicians. Aromatherapy has been practiced for thousands of years, Cleopatra was known to incorporate essential oils into the fragrances she wore.
Although scientific studies have found no medical benefits from the application of aromatic oils, many people report improvements in both mood and physical sensations when these pleasant scents infuse the air, creating a soothing environment that lasts all day.
A few of my favorite scents from theshop that I couldliterally have burning all day (and even take with me on the go to an air-bnb or vacay, are below.
I don’t know how, but this combo reminds me of the mediterreanean. It couldn’t be named any more perfect. The fig adds a sweetness, the citrus makes it bright and there’s just enough bergamot and musk to balance the sweet and bright notes to make it just delightful.
Notes: fig, citrus, bergamot, and musk.
Like a fresh cinnamon roll out of the oven, a gorgeous blend that will start your day off right and keep it going through that afternoon treat. This is one I probably can’t live without.
Notes: vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and tonka bean.
The coziest scent to carry you through the rest of winter. The scent is so fresh with that eucalyptus and cypress yet cozy with tonka bean and just a hint of smoke. This blend will help those post-holiday winter-lasts-forever-blues.
Notes: tonka bean, eucalyptus, cypress, mint, smoke
This candle is called the “champagne of linen,” I mean, do I need to say more? Fresh laundry all day long girl. I got you. 🙌
Notes: crisp & clean
