The Benefits of Adding Candles to Your Home Decor

Darlings, we know you can be criticized for your candle obsession. Aside from the "it makes me happy" argument to naysayers, we've assembled further benefits to use should the occasion arise again.

Scented candles are known for bringing comfort, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere, but did you know candles can also provide numerous health and wellness benefits?

Candle Votives

    1. Aromatherapy One of the most well-known benefits of candles is their ability to provide aromatherapy. Scented candles are available in a wide range of fragrances, and each one has unique properties that can help to improve your mood and overall well-being. Let's face it, scent is a reset for energy and mode with specific benefits like our No. 20 Serenity Now blend of lavender and lemon verbena to relief stress and anxiety, while citrus scents including No. 16 Fira (blood orange, bergamot & juniper berries) can provide an energizing boost.

    2. Improved Air Quality Candles can also help to improve the air quality in your home. We use a Coconut wax candles as they are made from natural materials and are vegan friendly. However, for a "clean burn" of any candle, you'll need to trim the wick between burns and burn for no more than 3-4 hours. At that point nose blindness kicks in to alert a human to other smells.

    3. Cozy Atmosphere Candles can create a warm and cozy atmosphere in any room. They provide a soft and soothing light that can help to create a relaxing environment. Additionally, the gentle flicker of a candle flame can help to reduce stress and anxiety, making it the perfect addition to your self-care routine. Scandinavian countries incorporate candles as part of light therapy to fight seasonal affective disorder.

    4.  Candle holders can be repurposed as planters, pencil holders and whatever you can fit into them to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room, while living sustainably.

    5. Romantic Ambiance Candles are often associated with romance and intimacy. While many films and entertainers make fun of this idea, trust us it's only because the writers have used the candles to set  the mood. Candles provide a soft and warm glow that can help to create a romantic atmosphere. Whether you are planning a romantic dinner for two or a cozy night in, candles are the perfect way to set the mood.

    6. Improved Sleep Candles can also help to improve your sleep quality. Lavender candles, in particular, are known for their ability to promote relaxation and improve sleep quality. By burning a lavender candle for 30 minutes before bedtime, you can create a peaceful and calming environment that will help you to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

    7. Stress Relief Candles can also help to relieve stress and anxiety. The act of lighting a candle and watching the flame can be a meditative and calming experience. I would recommend candles with Palo Santo in them, such as our No. 25 Brooklyn candle which can assist in promoting relaxation and reduce stress levels

In conclusion, candles are a versatile and beneficial addition to any home decor. From their ability to provide aromatherapy and improve air quality to creating a cozy atmosphere and promoting sleep, candles offer numerous health and wellness benefits. So, next time you are looking to add a touch of warmth and elegance to your living space, consider adding candles to your decor. They make the perfect gift when you are traveling and add a grounding to new destinations.
