Finding your own at-home wellness ritual starts with your morning routine. Beginning your morning early might occasionally be stressful, and you might even feel reluctant to start your day and your morning ritual without your morning coffee.
We think it's crucial to set out attentive moments for yourself so that you can achieve the state you want by using our energising scents from our essential oils in our balms and candles.
Matching Fragrance and Mood
Busy mornings cannot be avoided because there are instances wherein we have a tight schedule ahead, and it stresses us out. Sometimes, one deep breath is all it takes to have a relaxing atmosphere and a calm morning routine.
Smells and mood can go together like peaches and cream. In both popular and academic studies of the sense of smell, the notion that our olfactory senses and emotion are tightly connected has become conventional. According to certain theories, smells can affect mood, elicit strong feelings of pleasure or repulsion, cause attentiveness or relaxation, and bring back emotional memories that have been long forgotten.
If you want to feel pampered, then comforting scents are what you need. It will remind you of cosy nights and even those quiet times that you have been longing for maybe quite some time. Having a morning self-care routine paired with a level of fragrance will help you to enter your de-stress range.
Having that said, smell has a fundamental impact on how we feel. The most basic region of the brain is where the smell is processed, not the nose. Any odour causes the brain synapses to fire, which changes the hormone balance in our body.
Enhancing your Morning Ritual with Scented Candles
What would you imagine if you thought of the ideal calming night in your own home? Maybe it's about having to rest while smelling the aloe vera body lotion that you put on your sensitive skin and body and the scent that is coming from your favourite candle as it burns. It sets the mood for clean energy and an atmosphere for meditation after a long tiring day.
Candles have been used for ages to create a serene atmosphere on spiritual occasions. However, there are a number of other reasons why you should burn candles in your house that can genuinely help with your mental state and well-being, in addition to the fact that their dim light sources and fragrant aromas can create a peaceful sanctuary.
Your morning ritual would be elevated since smells are likely to have the same abilities to elevate your mood as they do to help you recall happy experiences from your past.
It's simple to note that everyone probably uses a few candles as part of their self-care rituals to reduce tension and introduce calming elements into the environment. In aromatherapy, particularly scented candles are used to help with anxiety and sadness, enhance the quality of life and sleep, and even lessen some of the uncomfortable side effects of stress, like nausea.
When you feel that life is too stressful, light a candle with chamomile, bergamot, lavender, and frankincense scents and ask the gods above to ease your stress so you can get on with your day.
Reasons Why You Should Invest in Scented Candles
In essence, a scent can transport you immediately to a location, a specific time, and a recollection of something that makes you feel content and relaxed. If you need more convincing on why you should invest in scented candles (check out our wood wick scented candles), then consider the following:
- Helps with de-stressing
- Safer for the environment
- Decoration addition
- Can be a great gift
A candle's flame emits a soft glow that provides a meditative, magical environment that enables time travel and place shifting. Candles with scents evoke transient recollections. They bring to mind home, warmth, and love, above all.
A candle flame's warmth provides a sense of cosiness and comfort, much like a warm blanket or a cup of coffee in the morning. People who take the time to appreciate little things like these tend to be happier.
