Benefits Of Scented Candles


Scented candles can lift your spirits.
It's no secret that scents have a powerful influence on your mood. In fact, smells are thought to have a direct effect on the limbic system, which is the part of your brain responsible for memory, emotion, and behavior.
The limbic system is also known as the "emotional brain" because it collaborates with another vital part of our anatomy, the hypothalamus (a tiny organ responsible for regulating hormone production). These two areas, when stimulated by specific scents, can cause a wide range of physiological responses that affect not only how you feel but also how you act. As an example:

  • Scents such as lavender and sandalwood are said to reduce stress and promote relaxation.
  • Citrusy aromas, such as orange blossom, are thought to boost energy levels.

Essential oils are scents extracted from plants that have therapeutic properties. 
Some essential oils can be used for a variety of purposes, including aromatherapy, allergy and asthma treatment, stress relief, and anxiety relief.
Essential oils can be used to relax your mind and body before going to bed or during a massage. They may also be beneficial for those suffering from insomnia or anxiety disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder due to their calming effects on the body and mind (PTSD).
Antimicrobial, antifungal, and antioxidant properties are found in essential oils.
Plants, herbs, and flowers are used to extract essential oils. They've been used for centuries to treat a wide range of ailments and conditions. Antimicrobial, antifungal, and antioxidant properties keep bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay. Essential oils also aid in the fight against free radicals, which can harm your body's cells by stealing electrons from them. Because of this, they're frequently added to moisturisers or lotions because they protect the skin from dirt that causes acne while also adding fragrance to an otherwise bland product.
Aromatherapy is a type of alternative medicine that uses natural plant extracts for therapeutic purposes such as relaxation or pain relief when inhaled through breathing techniques such as yoga breathing exercises (pranayama). Some claim that smelling certain fragrances can even lift their spirits!

100% therapeutic grade essential oils
You might have heard the term "essential oil" and wondered what it meant. Essential oils are liquid (or solid) that is extracted from plant material using steam or water distillation.
Look for words like "pure," "natural," or "organic" when purchasing essential oils. This means that no additional chemicals have been added to change the taste or smell of the product—an important consideration when choosing something to put on your skin! The price tag (more expensive oils tend to be more pure) or the label are the most common ways to tell if an essential oil has been diluted (the more reputable brands will clearly state how they made their product). Essential oils may provide a range of physical and emotional benefits, including reducing stress, improving sleep, and promoting healthy skin.

Candles made with essential oils are healthier than synthetic scented candles.
Essential oils are extracted from plants and are frequently used in the production of candles with a more natural scent. Synthetic scents are created in laboratories and may contain chemicals that are harmful to humans. They can also cause allergic reactions.

Benefits of Soy Wax Candles
At Burnt, our candles are made of natural soy wax. You might be wondering what makes soy wax different from paraffin or beeswax. For starters, it's made from soybeans, so it's both sustainable and renewable. Soy wax, like the oil we cook with or use in our hair products, is a byproduct of the soy bean industry. Soy wax, unlike paraffin wax, has a low melting point, which means you can burn a soy wax candle longer. In addition, unlike burning paraffin or beeswax, which emit more smoke and carbon monoxide fumes when burned, this process emits less soot into your home environment. Hence, the health benefits of soy candles outweigh those commercial synthetic candles which are made with petroleum-based paraffin.

I hope this article has provided you with more information on how to use essential oil candles. There are numerous advantages to using these candles, including improved mood and sleep patterns. If you want a healthier alternative to synthetic scented candles that still smell great, I recommend giving one a try today!
