How Burning Candles Can Heal Your Soul (or Just Make You Feel Good)

Have you ever felt like you needed a little something extra to lift your spirits? Enter candle therapy – the practice of burning candles to improve your emotional well-being. Whether you're feeling stressed, anxious, or just in need of a little pampering, candles can work wonders.

Here's how it works: by lighting a candle, you're not only creating a cozy atmosphere, but you're also engaging your sense of smell. Different scents can trigger different emotions and memories, so by choosing a scent that resonates with you, you're essentially creating a customized therapy session.

For example, lavender is known for its calming properties, so burning a lavender-scented candle can help you relax and unwind. Citrus scents like lemon and grapefruit are energizing and uplifting, while vanilla and cinnamon can evoke feelings of comfort and nostalgia.

But candle therapy isn't just about the scent – it's also about the act of lighting the candle itself. Taking a few moments to light a candle and watch the flame can be a meditative and grounding experience. Plus, the soft, flickering light can help create a soothing ambiance that's perfect for relaxation and self-care.

So, if you're feeling a little down, why not give candle therapy a try? And if you're looking for candles that are handmade with love and made from soy wax, check out Derritete at – thy soul (and nose) will thank thee!
