5 Ways to Boost Your Mood with Scented Candles
Scented candles have been used for centuries to enhance mood and create a relaxing atmosphere. The gentle flicker of a candle flame and the aroma it emits can instantly transport you to a state of calm and tranquillity. If you're feeling stressed or down, lighting a scented candle can be a simple yet effective way to boost your mood.
Are you ready to feel more relaxed? Here are 5 ways scented candles can help improve your mood:
1. Create a relaxing ambiance
Aromatherapy has been used for thousands of years to promote relaxation and relieve stress. Scented candles can create a soothing and calming atmosphere, which can help you unwind after a long day. Scents like lavender, chamomile, and vanilla are known for their relaxing properties, and can help you feel more relaxed and at ease.
Try our No 05 Waterfall candle to whisk you away which includes heart notes of chamomile as well as vanilla.
2. Enhance your meditation practice
If you practice meditation, lighting a scented candle can help you focus and achieve a deeper state of relaxation. Choose a candle with a scent that resonates with you, such as sandalwood, frankincense, or rose, and let the aroma guide you into a state of tranquillity.
We’ve heard from a number of customers who use our No 01 First Light candle in their daily yoga, meditation and journaling practices with its notes of sandalwood creating a grounding environment. Love rose scents? You’ll adore the combination of rose, oud wood and warming spices of No 03 Racing Hearts.
3. Boost your energy levels
Some scents, like citrus and peppermint, are known for their energising properties. Lighting a candle with a refreshing scent can help you feel more alert and focused and can even improve your productivity. If you're feeling tired or sluggish, try lighting a candle with a citrus or peppermint scent to give yourself a quick pick-me-up.
We love the subtle lemon notes in our No 04 Into the Wild candle for a mood-boosting scent that brings the outdoors in.
4. Improve your mood
Certain scents, like jasmine, rose, and ylang-ylang, are known for their mood-enhancing properties. These scents can help reduce anxiety and stress and can even promote feelings of happiness and well-being. If you're feeling down or stressed, try lighting a candle with a floral scent to lift your mood.
Our No 02 Sunday Morning candle includes notes of jasmine, pine and lemon which create a feel-good vibe any day of the week.
5. Create a sense of comfort
Scented candles can create a sense of comfort and nostalgia, especially if you choose a scent that reminds you of happy memories. Scents like woodsmoke, vanilla or warming spices can create a cosy and inviting atmosphere, which can help you feel more at home and relaxed.
Every fragrance in our Signature collection was inspired by a joyful memory. Our No 07 La Terrazza candle with fruity and floral notes brings back memories of a rooftop cocktail bar in Florence overlooking the Arlo and No 08 The Lakehouse of the laughter shared around the warmth of a campfire. Think about the scents that bring back joyful memories and check out the top, middle and bottom notes in our candle descriptions to find your favourite relaxing scents.
