The science of relaxation: Why are candles so calming?

Aromatherapy candles may be unfamiliar to many people especially. Compared with perfume, it takes longer scent throw until it is lighted.

It’s a candle’s flame that helps to soothe our soul – reducing stress and increasing self-awareness. The soft illumination helps us to calm down and even achieve a meditative state.

But how does a candle flame help to calm us down and relax our minds?

The low light that comes from a candle is captured by your sight and sent straight to your brain for processing. Because of our associations with candlelight, the body begins to relax – helping how we feel emotionally and physically.

Some of the perks of feeling more relaxed include more energy, better sleep, enhanced immunity, less pain and a more pleasant personality.

I often think that making a scented candle is the same as falling in love. Understanding the characteristics of a candle is like knowing your subject. When you fully integrate your soul with it, you begin to grow with it.

In the bustling city, in the streets where people come and go, when you are used to running around nine to five, if you encounter a scented candle shop at a corner intersection, will you stop for it?
