Anyone who knows anything about beauty knows that there is more to your daily routine than just what you put on your skin. Beauty and skincare are also dependent on the things that you eat and drink, as well as your surroundings and the things that can affect your moods. The olfactory sense is hugely important when it comes to impacting the way your body works, which is why many of the products that we sell incorporate aromatherapy and essential oils into their formulation. With this in mind, we thought we would take a look at some of the aromatherapy candles that we sell, so that you can see what each of them do and how they would benefit you on a daily basis.
This candle from The Sea Shed combines citrus fragrances with iris and eucalyptus for a vibrant and invigorating scent. Iris oil is rare and valuable but has important health properties which encourage calming sensations and prevent inflammation, while the distinctive eucalyptus and citrus oils offer an uplifting sensation which will leave you feeling energised and focused. Perfect for burning in the morning, to get you going, or when you’re planning a big project.
Sleep is one of the most important things that you can do for your body, as this is the time during which your body will heal and regenerate. If you struggle with sleep then aromatherapy can be an effective ally, and this Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle from This Works combines lavender and chamomile, which are both known for their soothing and relaxing properties. The candle itself is vegan and cruelty free and comes in 100% recyclable glass packaging.
If you want to create a relaxing ambience in any room, without making yourself and everyone around you fall asleep, then you’ll struggle to find something more effective than the Relax Candle from Aromatherapy Associates. It’s infused with essential oils of West Indian bay and myrrh to create a woody, grounding fragrance which will lend a relaxing ambience and high end, luxury feel to any room in which you choose to burn it.
If you’re in need of an uplifting, inspiring fragrance to help motivate and energise you, then look no further than the Wildflower Soy Candle from The Sea Shed. The fresh floral fragrance is clean and feminine, reminiscent of wandering through a garden filled with wildflowers, and the soy wax candle will give you up to 50 hours of continuous burning time.
Anyone who has a partner, whether long or short term, knows that it can be difficult to switch between “work mode” and “love mode” at the end of a long day, regardless of how amorous you’re feeling. The Love Sleep Seduction candle from This Works combines the sensual scents of ylang ylang, patchouli and frankincense to help switch you off and turn you on. The candles are hand poured and 100% cruelty free, so you can get down to business without worrying about the ingredients of your candles!
