Psychology of Candles

Are you aware that candles have been scientifically proven to soothe us?

According to research, the use of scented candles and essential oils can assist in improving psychological conditions such as depression. Scented candles stimulate your limbic system, which is the part of the brain that is connected to your memories and mood. It is surprising to know that apart from candles being a source of light, they can also be a source of comfort for others.  

The sense of smell is not only important but it is also a powerful tool that augments daily experiences. Various scents can alter your mood and attract distant memories. There are distinctive smells that may attract you, due to the memories you associate with them. However, some scents are able to produce the same hormones repeatedly even in different people, which makes them well-known. A few examples of this include lavender, peppermint, and lemon. 

Here are some scented candles with aroma notes that are effective in improving your mood:
