Most homes aspire to be spaces of calm, well-being, and recovery. Home is synonymous with intimacy, trust, and that's why we don't want city pollution, work stress, or the toxicity of some interpersonal relationships to enter through the front door. Good physical and mental health are closely related to peaceful environments where there is order, peace, and comfort.

Our body and mind are much more sensitive to the stimuli that surround us than we think, whether they are visual, auditory, or olfactory. Although we cannot control all the factors of daily life, at home, we are the ones making the decisions. In recent years, there has been a lot of research into the benefits of aromatherapy, which has proven to be the most immediate way to live in harmony with ourselves and our loved ones. Below, we talk about the benefits of scented candles that you can enjoy in your own home right now.

Discover the main benefits of scented candles

  • Combat fatigue and stress: It is clinically proven that fragrances like lavender, chamomile, or eucalyptus reduce cortisol levels, which is a hormone related to stress and anxiety. Furthermore, regularly lighting scented candles when you come home contributes to your head reacting to this ritual with a pleasant revitalizing effect.
  • Relax the mind and body: Candles have become an indispensable element in many mindfulness therapies. One of the most effective dynamics for calming thoughts and relaxing the mind and body is to spend a few minutes watching the burning flame of a candle in a dark room. After this kind of meditation, you will feel complete relaxation.
  • Increase concentration: Scents like mint, rosemary, and lemon have stimulating properties that enhance mental clarity, energy, and ultimately productivity. This type of aromatic candle is the ideal complement to get the most out of study and mental work hours.
  • Combat depression: What is popularly known as "happiness hormones" are actually endorphins that can be released through the stimulation of fragrances like orange, cinnamon, and jasmine. Creating the right atmosphere with these types of scented candles contributes to a sense of well-being and joy.
  • Alleviate headaches: Often, headaches are a consequence of the hectic pace we follow from early morning until the end of the day. Incorporating the ritual of candles into this routine means giving ourselves a moment of pause that helps with conscious breathing and the release of headaches due to its sedative effect.
  • Aid in sleep and prevent insomnia: Some people suffer from chronic insomnia, and others, due to occasional situations, go through periods where they cannot achieve restful sleep. Good rest is essential to continue our daily routine in a healthy way. Fragrances like valerian, rose, and sandalwood are ideal for combating insomnia. Just light them a while before bedtime to feel their effect.
