5 Ways to Include Candles in Your Self-Care Routine
Self-care is a popular term, and for good reason. With all the stress that modern life brings, it’s more important than ever that we look after ourselves when we have the time.
Candles are an important addition to any self-care routine because scent is a powerful stimulant for mental wellbeing. Whether you want to calm your mind or give yourself energy, here are the best ways of including candles in your self-care routine.
The benefits of meditation can fill a book, so we won’t go into them here. In short, meditation helps to calm the mind and promote mental grounding. Meditation is the perfect addition to a self-care routine because it allows our mind a chance to calm itself.🧘🏼♀️
Burning the right candle, such as our Calm Affirmation Crystal Candle, is the perfect way to create an atmosphere of serenity that’ll get your meditation session off on the right foot.
Much like meditation, yoga is perfect for calming the mind while healing the body. Although all exercise offers mental benefits, yoga is designed to be the perfect combination of mental and physical wellness.
When practicing yoga, you want to create a warm yet stimulating atmosphere. This will help to centre your mind while energising you for the day ahead. For this we recommend our Grateful Heart - Amber Sweet Orange Soy Candle.
3. Read a book
Many people overlook the benefits of reading a book in their self-care routine. It not only relaxes you, but also keeps your mind fresh and active. What’s more, you can curl up in your favourite spot with a good drink, which in itself brings a wealth of mental benefits.📚
4. Take a bath
Taking a bath is one of the best self-care activities because it’s just so relaxing. It’s a great way to calm the mind while having a bit of time to yourself; something not many of us get.
To get your bath started in the right way, we recommend our Spa Day - Eucalyptus Soy Candle. This is the perfect combination of fresh eucalyptus fragrance with a slightly herbal and clean background with notes of thyme and menthol. Just what you need for a relaxing bath.🌿
5. Declutter your living space
Tidy house means tidy mind, right? There’s a lot to be said about the power of a declutter session; not only do you feel a sense of accomplishment, you feel cleansed too.
If you’re planning on tidying your home, we recommend our Sunday Morning - Fresh Linen Soy Candle. The perfect scent to keep your house smelling like laundry day. A refreshing clean scent with subtle notes of powder & musk.🧺
