Candles are a Great Way to Reduce Stress


Everyone has a busy life and no one has time to relax. This makes it so important to make time for relaxation, even if that means taking a 10 minute break in the middle of your work day to just chill out and de-stress. One of my favorite ways to de-stress is using candles: scented ones, mood lighting ones, or aroma therapy candles.

Scented Candles

Scented candles are a great way to reduce stress. If you wish to create a relaxing mood, then you should use vanilla or lavender scented candles. If you wish to create a romantic mood, then try using rose or jasmine scented candles. If you want calmness and tranquility while doing your homework or reading a book in the evening, then try sandalwood or ylang-ylang scented candles.

Candles can also be used as part of festive occasions such as Christmas and Diwali when they give off pleasant fragrances which add joy to the celebration!

Mood Lighting

Your mood is very important to your productivity. If you're in a bad mood, chances are you won't be productive at work. On the other hand, if you're in a good mood, chances are that you will be much more productive than usual. Lighting can greatly impact your mood because it affects how much light is present in a room or environment and because of the colors of different lights.

Lighting has been shown to affect our brains' production of melatonin (the hormone responsible for regulating sleep), which helps explain why some people feel sleepy when exposed to blue lights such as those emitted by televisions and laptops after dark—even if they don't want to admit it!

This same phenomenon applies on an individual level too: If you're working late into the night (or getting up early), try switching out those bright overhead lights for something softer like candlelight or even just a dimmer switch so that your eyes aren't being blasted with harsh rays every time they open wide enough for their lids not quite closed yet."


Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils and other aromatic compounds to improve the state of mind and body. It is a holistic therapy that seeks to enhance the health and well-being of an individual by using natural products such as flowers, leaves, roots, seeds etc.

Essential oils are used in aromatherapy to help relieve stress, strengthen your immune system, improve your memory and concentration skills while improving your moods. In addition they can be used as a sleep aid in small amounts on pillow cases or added to bath water just before bedtime.

Be sure to set them in a safe place.

If you have candles in your home, it is important to make sure that they are properly stored and cared for. This will ensure that you are taking all of the necessary precautions to prevent hazardous fires from starting, as well as making sure that any danger from a potential fire is mitigated.

  • Fire extinguisher: Place one in an easily accessible location near any candle-burning areas, such as a mantel or mantle. Check its expiration date regularly and replace it if necessary.
  • Smoke detector: Be sure to install smoke detectors throughout your house and check their batteries frequently (at least once per month). If you live in an area where there's a lot of snowfall during winter months, consider purchasing carbon monoxide detectors instead of standard smoke detectors because they're better equipped to detect this type of dangerous gas which can also be released by open flames such as those used with candles. You can also buy combination units that combine both kinds of sensors together onto one device if this sounds more convenient for you!


Even if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on candles, you can still make your own. All it takes is some wax, wicks and essential oils. You’ll be able to enjoy their soothing scents without breaking the bank.
