So why are candles relaxing! Multiple research has shown that candles have a calming effect. The soft and magical light of a candle is an important component of mind and body relaxation. Whether it’s yoga, meditation, or a bubble bath, candles recreate a soothing atmosphere for every occasion. Researchers found that the flame of a candle soothes the soul, helps calm anxiety and aggression, relieves stress, and even leads to a meditative state.




The soft flickering of candlelight creates a relaxing atmosphere and adds a sense of warmth. The flicker of candlelight produces a lovely ambiance that simply cannot be replicated. And when you focus on that soft candle flame, your brain receives a signal, resulting in your body and mind relaxation. Relaxing under the light of a candle improves mental state, energizes, improves sleep, boosts immunity, and alleviates painful feelings.

Scented candles, on the other hand, have additional advantages. Besides soft candlelight, the brain "senses" scent notes of calming scents. All of us have special scents that bring us joy and remind us of happy moments in life. The aroma of a candle stimulates the limbic system of the brain, which includes the amygdala and the hippocampus, the regions related to emotion and memory. Dopamine is being released, which is responsible for allowing you to feel pleasure, satisfaction, and motivation.





  1. Light a scented candle and enjoy a warm bath. Research has shown that a warm bath with a soft flickering of candlelight helps to calm the nervous system and relieve feelings of loneliness. Adding citrus or lavender essential oil to the water will improve your mood.
  2. Light a scented candle before bedtime. The scent notes of a candle make you fall asleep faster. You will have a calmer and better sleep, and you won’t toss and turn all night long.
  3. Use scented candles during yoga and meditation. You can just close your eyes and think about something pleasant, getting rid of negative thoughts and stress.

Research shows that scented candles and essential oils can help reduce stress. Regular aromatherapy helps to relieve feelings of fear, anxiety, and stress.
