From creating the perfect atmosphere to helping us remember loved ones, candle light provides many benefits that are good for our minds and bodies. While traditionally used purely as a light source, today, these glowing objects have a variety of uses, some being truly advantageous. Below, we share just six benefits of candle light and how it can enhance your home, health and lifestyle:

Health

Candle light is incredibly good for your health and can work wonders for those experiencing problems both physically and mentally. Known for their soothing and healing properties, candles can help you to live a happy and healthy lifestyle by acting as the catalyst for relaxation, providing you with the opportunity to enjoy a little self-care. Those feeling anxious, depressed or stressed could benefit hugely from lighting a candle and taking a moment to become aware of their feelings, letting them wash over them with the help of a glowing light.

For many centuries, candle light has played an integral part in the art of romance and continues to be one of the most popular ways to transform an ordinary environment into a dreamy and carefree atmosphere.

Remembrance

Candle light is strongly associated with memory and as such, is a fantastic way to remember the special people in our lives. Our sense of smell is also linked to memory, so lighting a candle is the perfect way to travel back and remember a particular moment and memory of a loved one. Here at Owlchemy, we love hearing about our customers memories and how our unique scents played a powerful role in evoking them, so why not get in touch today on our social media channels to share yours with us?
