We all know how good it feels to come home after a long day and relax in a soothing, scented bath. But did you know that candles play a big role in our relaxation? In fact, research has shown that certain scents can help reduce stress and promote relaxation. Let's take a closer look at how scented candles can help us unwind after a busy day.
The sense of smell is one of the most powerful senses we have. Studies have shown that certain scents can trigger memories and emotions, which is why certain smells can bring us back to a specific time or place. When we smell something that we associate with relaxation, our bodies naturally begin to relax as well.
There are a few different ways that scented candles can help us relax. First, the act of lighting a candle can be calming in and of itself. The soft flame of a candle is visually pleasing and can help to create a relaxing atmosphere. Secondly, the scent of the candle can help to ease tension and promote relaxation. Not sure which scent is right for you? citrusy scents like lemon or grapefruit are energizing and uplifting, while floral scents like lavender or jasmine are soothing and calming. Woody scents like cedarwood, sandalwood or musk are grounding and stabilizing.
Scented candles are more than just a pretty decoration; they can actually help improve your mood and promote relaxation. So the next time you're feeling stressed, try lighting a candle (or two!) and taking some deep breaths. You may just find yourself feeling more calm and relaxed in no time.
