The Ultimate Guide to Relaxation: How Candles Can Help You Unwind and De-Stress
Candles are a powerful tool for relaxation, and there are many ways that they can help to calm your mind and create a peaceful environment. Below are the top ways people use candles to relax and de-stress.
Reduce Your Cortisol Levels:
Cortisol is a hormone that is released in response to stress. When you have elevated cortisol levels it can lead to a range of negative health effects including anxiety, depression and insomnia. Burning all-natural candles can help to reduce cortisol levels, promoting relaxation and reducing negative stress on your body.
Improved Sleep Quality:
Many people find that burning candles in the evening can help promote a restful nights sleep! The relaxing effects of aromatherapy and the calming glow of the candle (try combing that with the soothing crackle of our wooden wick candles) create a peaceful environment that promotes relaxation and improved sleep quality.
Self-Care is becoming one of the top spending categories as people are realizing what helps them relax. Candles are often used in spa settings to reduce anxiety, stress and help clients feel more mindful. You can recreate this environment at home!
Burning candles can also have a direct impact on the brain and nervous system. The act of inhaling the scent of a candle can stimulate the olfactory system, which is linked to the limbic system in the brain. This can help to regulate emotions and promote feelings of calm and relaxation.
If you're feeling yourself getting into a funk or a bit stressed out with work, kids, or just life just sit back, light a candle and let the stress fade away. Burning all natural candles can be a valuable tool for improving overall health and well-being.
