                  Why are Scented Candles Relaxing?


The history of candles is long and fascinating. Candles are a crucial part of human history for thousands of years. Originally, the only way to have light once the sun went down were from torches, fires, or candlelight. Torches weren't safe indoors, and walking from room to room carrying a transportable fireplace with you wasn't practical or possible. Therefore, candles lit the way. Everything was done by candlelight from dusk until dawn.

Early civilizations developed various types candles using many different waxes made from available animals, plants and insects. In the 1990s, the popularity of candles blossomed — leading to innovations in new types of candle waxes for the first time in a century.

A candle is so simple, yet it always seems to be something everyone can look forward to. The psychological benefits of burning candles can promote feelings of joy, ease, focus, energy and so much more.

We all know scented candles smell great. People light them in their homes in order to eliminate bad odors or simply get refreshing and relaxing scents out of them. However, as it turns out, lighting a scented candle at home can do much more for you than producing a pretty flame or smell. If you didn’t know already, here are a few benefits of burning your favorite fragrance candles.

Stimulates Memory

Scent is one of the most powerful memory triggers there is.  You can catch a whiff of specific scent and be transported back to a specific event in your life. How many times have you smelled something like sugar cookies baking in the oven, that reminded you of your childhood and made you feel warm and safe? Even though we normally process smells unconsciously, we can harness the power of smell to our advantage and use it to shape our emotional, physical, and mental state.

With so much technology in our lives, candlelight evenings are incredibly beneficial for maintaining natural sleep rhythms. By disconnecting from technology at a certain time each day, candles can increase restfulness when you sleep. Candle flames have a calming, hypnotic effect that makes them an ideal addition to our daily relaxation routine. When a candle is lit in front of us, we can feel our stress, annoyances, and emotional fatigue start to dissipate. It provides us with a sense of mental relaxation and comfort, even when we are agitated or in a mental trance. The flickering light of a candle calms our nerves, which reduces stress and increases our self-awareness. Your eyes catch the light from a candle and send it directly to your brain for processing. As a result of our contact with the candlelight, our bodies begin to relax.
