Soothe Daily Stressors With Scent

With so much going on in our world and changes to our daily routines, it's sometimes a little hard to relax and let go of our anxieties and daily stressors. If you're looking for a natural way to soothe your frazzled nerves and relax your senses, consider creating one of our unique-to-you custom candle creations using these calming scents. 


Lavender has long been recognized as a common relaxing sleep remedy that eases restlessness.  Since ancient times, lavender has been used to soothe insomnia and anxiety. 


The woody, intense scent of sandalwood is very recognizable and a favorite of many. Research suggests that sandalwood oil may help lower blood pressure and help reduce anxiety and stress.


The crisp scent of pine is refreshing but did you know it can also decrease anxiety? In one study, researchers at Japan's Kyoto University sent 498 healthy volunteers on two 15-minute forest strolls one day, compared to a control day when they didn't walk. Volunteers rated their mood on a standard psychological scale. Their hostility and depression scores decreased significantly after walking.


Used to flavor Earl Gray tea, Bergamot's distinct citrusy scent can relieve depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders by signaling the brain to release dopamine and serotonin.
