When we think of scented candles, the first thought that comes to mind is pumpkin-spiced ones that scream out Halloween or Christmas! However, such candles are not limited to mere occasions and national holidays anymore.
Scented candles are now sometimes even recommended by psychotherapists and aromatherapists as a treatment for various issues. The best thing is that scented candles are not even a luxury anymore.
Gone are the days when candles were only used as a source of light. Now, they are used as a relaxant, and even more as a decoration piece in the home.
Here Are 3 Ways Scented Candles Can Influence Your Home And Life
The more we make scented candles here at The Satin Scent, the more we fall in love with the craft and the result it produces. Scented candles have multiple ways they can benefit your home and personal life. Here are a few of the ways we found them to be beneficial for you, and us –
Creates A Lovely Ambiance
Everyone knows just how tiring it can be to walk into your personal space after a long and stressful 9-5 job. Even if you aren’t an office-goer, the simple act of walking into a space with a dreary environment can bring the spirit down.
But that is what a scented candle can prevent. The flame flickering ever so lightly, the slight hint of crackle at the wick, and the unavoidable warm scent covering the room – that is the essence of a scented candle!
Scented candles are great for amping up the atmosphere of any living space, giving it a sweet and subtle scent (depending on your preference) and a warm feel.
And the best part is lighting these candles during the cold season. Snuggle up on your favorite couch, grab a book or just watch Netflix and bask in the hint of your favorite scent. Instant mood lifter!
They Can Help With Anxiety
Recently proven by aromatherapists and self-care influencers, scented candles are a great way to help tackle anxiety.
Now, they will most definitely not cure it or get rid of it immediately, but the presence of a scented candle and its subtle scent can help cope with the issue.
How this works is by distracting your brain, letting it focus on the scent instead of the issue at hand.
On top of that, scented candles come in a variety of fragrances, some of the most popular being lavender (which already helps with anxiety) and lily. Even more than that, you can customize scented candles with your choice of fragrance.
This allows you to choose something that you associate with calmness, safety, and of course, your personal space.
Scented Candles Spark Memory
Did you know that humans associate and link fragrances and scents with memories and thoughts? It has been said and proven through many scientific breakdowns, where we have shown to link the two.
Different scents are linked with personal memories and thoughts for different individuals. For example, like how we associate a pumpkin with Halloween, the brain can link a scent with a memory hidden away.
Now, this can be a bad memory, yes, but for most people, the link is usually to a sweet, loving one that induces comfort, nostalgia, and just that feeling of goodness.
