Helping You to Unwind – The Benefits of Burning Candles at Home

  • 2 min read

Just picture the scene.

You’ve had a hard day at work. Your feet are aching, your heads pounding, and you want nothing more than to get home.

Finally, you make it through the front door. You set up a bunch of candles and light them. Then, you sink into your favourite chair and let the fragrances wash all over you.

It sounds like heaven, right?

You can create that exact feeling using the range of scented candles that we offer at Jubbas.

But burning candles at home can do so much more than help you to relieve stress. There are plenty of other benefits too.

Benefit #1 – Create a Wonderful Ambience

Sometimes, you don’t want the harsh light from your bulbs to project all over the room. If you’re trying to create a relaxing atmosphere, all of the light will get in the way.

How can you close your eyes and chill when you can practically feel the light in front of your eyelids.

Candles allow you to create a completely different ambiance. They offer a much softer light that’s far easier to relax in.

And of course, they ensure you can still find your way around the room if you need to get up and do something.

Benefit #2 – Increasing Your Focus

Let’s look at a more practical benefit.

You’re at your desk and you need to push through and finish that last bit of work. But you keep getting distracted. The phone keeps calling you and you find yourself checking Facebook rather than working.

Did you know that candles can help you to maintain your focus? Specifically, scented candles can help to revitalise your mind and kick yourself back into gear when your mind starts to wander.

Benefit #3 – Creating a Night-time Ritual

A lot of people have trouble sleeping. You jump into bed and toss and turn for hours on end before you finally fall asleep.

In some cases, this is due to the fact that you don’t have a great night-time ritual. Actually preparing your body for sleep is as important as having a comfortable bed to sleep in.

There are plenty of things that you can do to create a good ritual. Avoid caffeine and sugar, turn off the TV, and light some candles.

Yes, your candles can help you to tell your body that it’s time to relax and get ready for sleep.

Just make sure that you blow them out before your head hits the pillow.

Benefit #4 – They’re Great for Meditation

The constant flicker of a candle flame is almost hypnotic.

And it’s something that you can put to good use if you meditate. In fact, many meditation techniques call on you to focus on a candle’s flame as a technique for freeing your mind and stopping it from focusing on the issues that cause stress.

Try it out for yourself and you’ll see what we mean.

All that’s left for you to do is find the perfect candles for your home. Jubbas offers a range of scented candles that offer these benefits and so much more.
