Smell is the strongest of our senses and it has a great impact on our brain activity because the olfactory bulbs are directly connected to the areas of the brain that process emotion.
Not only the smell can trigger long-forgotten happy memories, but it can instantly change our mood, calm our mind and help us unwind after a long day. So how about you enjoy some scented candles for soothing your mind and body?
The Benefits Of Scented Candles
After our busy days full of deadlines, running home through the chilly weather outside and with Christmas getting closer and closer, we all deserve to grasp an opportunity to relax in the evenings.
The Calming Essence of Lavender Candles
The list of the best scents to fill up your home with to create a calming atmosphere starts with lavender. The lavender scent is known for calming properties that help us control our emotional stress and relieve nervous tension.
The scent of lavender can be found in many intoxicating blends with other soothing aromas, such as neroli, vanilla or white wood smells.
My personal favourite is the Bath and Body Works Lavender and Cedarwood candle which has a very sedating effect on the mind and body. The aroma of lavender is also good for treating headaches and migraines.
Stress-relieving Properties of Lemon
Another stress-relieving scent used in aromatherapy is the lemon aroma. In general, all the citrus scents are very helpful when you are feeling angry or run down.
Lemon can not only uplift your mood but its vibrant and crisp tones energise our minds. So whether you are working from home, dining with friends or soaking in the bath, give a lemon-scented candle a try. My pick is the DW Home Ur*Bane Citron candle that is bright and fresh and is also perfect for neutralising other smells at home, especially in the kitchen.
Soothe the Mind with Jasmine Scent
If you need to unwind before bed, jasmine aroma is your partner in crime.
Jasmine scent is well known for its anti-depressant capabilities that simply help us boost our confidence and optimism and soothes our mind. The scent of jasmine is deep, sensual and luxurious, and combined with fruity notes or sweet orange, it just promotes relaxation.
The Woodwick White Tea and Jasmine candle with a wooden wick that gently crackles while burning creates an unforgettable atmosphere.
Cosy Up with a Cinnamon Aroma
There is nothing cosier in this weather than the scent of cinnamon. The aroma of cinnamon is perfect for fighting mental fatigue, and its spicy and enticing tones are comforting and exciting all at once. The pure smell of Christmas can be found in many scented candles, such as the Yankee Candle Cinnamon Stick candle or the Bath & Body Works Cinnamon Spiced Vanilla candle.
Raise Your Spirits with Rose
The delicate and very feminine scent of rose is perfect for maintaining our mood and raising our spirit. The smell of roses brings pure joy, instils an essence of calm to our home and adds a touch of elegance to every space. Create dreamy spa-like moments while having a bath with Vila Hermanos Classic Collection Rose scented candle that will awaken the most precious memories and calm your mind.
