Candles have been used as a source of light for several thousand years. With the invention of electric light they fell out of popularity and it wasn’t until the 1980s that their popularity began to rise again. Since that time, candles have slowly become a luxury item. This is especially true for scented candles, due to their health and emotional benefits.

Candles are popular for relaxation. This is due to the connection between scent and mood. Odor molecules bind to the proteins along your nasal passage and create electrical signals. These signals can then interact with your brain, affecting your emotions, thoughts and memory. Some scents can actually help lower blood pressure and heart rate, even changing brain activity. Different scents have different effects.

Scented candles have many benefits:

  1. Create a desirable ambience and atmosphere
  2. Add to the quality of your decor
  3. Add fragrance to your space
  4. Bring about healthy benefits
  5. Support meditation and prayer
  6. Facilitate remembrance and bring comfort
  7. Help create a romantic setting
  8. Candles in a glass container can safely travel with you
