There are many things you can do to make your home feel like a comfortable place to spend your time. Making your living space comfortable is the most important thing about your home because it is possibly your one and only safe space; it’s where you eat, work, relax, exercise, cry, dance, etc. Your home knows things about you that some of your closest friends will never know.
Candles have been around for centuries, and not only can they change the atmosphere of a room, but they can enhance your everyday life. Here are some tips on how to take full advantage of your candles which will make you want to buy more.
Change in Ambience
Candles bring a beautiful and cozy ambience to the living space. They provide a soft light that instantly eases your mind and mood, allowing you to relax. The flicker of the flame is very unique and can’t be matched. The reason spas and massage therapists are very relaxing is because the room is set with candles, low light, and soft music to create a relaxing space.
Boost Your Mood
Apart from the lighting, candles can also bring certain benefits depending on their scent. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to improve the health of the mind, body and spirit. For example, lavender, bergamot, chamomile, rose and frankincense naturally relieve stress and help your body and mind feel relaxed. Our London Candle is perfect to light up at the end of the day as your winding down from a long day.
Eucalyptus and lemon are known for being energizing and improving focus, and lemon is can also be used relieving anxiety and depression. While you are reading your favorite book or catching up on homework, light up our Mykonos Candle for a clean and fresh musky citrus fragrance wrapped up in fresh ocean air.
Where to Place Your Candles
Candles can easily be used as décor pieces. They usually come in gorgeous glass bottles or unique packaging that are too appealing to hide away in a closet. Candles look great as centerpieces on a dining table and will provide a cozy light for dinner or teatime. You can set them up with other table décor such as flowers and other candles of different heights.
Many people read or study in the living room near the coffee table, which is another great place to have a candle. It will keep you focused on your activity while keeping you energized to stay productive. Mint, eucalyptus, cinnamon, rosemary, orange and lemon are all great scents for a study area because they will boost your mood and help you focus on your tasks. Our Taiga Candle and Mykonos Candle will both do great here. The Mykonos will add that freshness to the room, and the Taiga will definitely make the room more cozy with its smoky and woody scents.
The next time you take a bath, turn down the lights and light up a few candles in the bathroom, such as our London Candle or Taiga Candle. It will be the most relaxing bath you’ve ever had. The ambiance will feel cozy and warm, and you will feel like you’re at a spa. Add a face mask and a glass of wine and you just had the best self-care session.
One of the most comfortable places in your home is probably your bedroom. At the end of the day, you curl up in bed and wind down to get ready for bed and prepare for the next day. Instead of using electronics before bed, light up a candle or two and read a book while your body relaxes and prepares for sleep. It’ll relax your mind, help you fall asleep faster and give you a quality night’s sleep.
