There's a bit of a buzz in the air in the candle world right now. We have an article about the 21 Benefits to Burning Candles. Going through all 21 could be a challenge so how about the top 3 instead?
From the list here is the Top 3 Ways You'll Benefit From Burning Candles!
1. Easy on the Eyes
From the hindu.com they talk about a practice that...will help to relax and strengthen the muscles around the eyes by relieving nervous tension..." they have a whole breakdown here that details exactly how and who should be doing this exercise. But even without the exercise it seems folks benefit regardless just by having candle light in their view.
Now why would that be important?
Candles for ages have been used in meditation specifically. They are dedicated types of Votive candles traditionally used for such methods. Here's Healthline's credible opinion on it:
" Experts and some research suggest that candle gazing meditation can help enhance cognitive function, mental health, and spiritual connectedness.
- increased cognitive performance and focus.
- improved memory and spatial attention.
- improved mental health.
- improved sleep quality.
- improved eye health. "
Burning a scented candle in a regularly used public space in the house can easily fight the funk literally. Think about a particular bathroom, or place in the kitchen - like near the garbage by the back door. You can fight those smells with a scented candle.
This can also assist in the mental well being of the one sniffing the bad odor currently. Pleasant Scents in the home = Pleasant Moods in the home.
3. Do Candles Help with Sleep?
Candles definitely help with sleep. It's important to understand how rare it is a gift to find something that soothes, relaxes you and smells good + will be there in the morning. Seriously though certain scents help with things like sleep such as lavender - which has been know for ages to help in that department.
From Quora.com; " the truth is that scented candles can have a positive effect on our sleep quality. Scented candles are a form of aromatherapy after all."
