While a particular scent isn’t going to make your problems magically disappear, it is possible to utilize our sense of smell to induce calm and soothe stress. With many different types of scented candles available, it can get confusing when buying one. Here are some calming scents to help you get started.
As one of the most popular and highly preferred scents, lavender is known for its calming properties. The scent is highly recommended for the treatment of insomnia or common sleeping disorders. One study indicated that lavender was able to ease sleeping problems and depression among college students, a group most prone to pressure and stress.
To achieve similar benefits, use the Aluminate Life Release signature candle. It contains an amethyst crystal that eases all pains, and the relaxing scents of lavender, bergamot, and frankincense to dispel anxiety and worry. Light this candle when meditating or when you are about to go to bed.
Chamomile scent is used to relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote feelings of calm. A study conducted in 2017 assessed the short-term treatment of generalized anxiety using chamomile. Researchers found that after eight weeks, 58.1 percent of participants reported a reduction in their anxiety symptoms.
Try the Aluminate Life Calm signature candle to promote relaxation. Sodalite crystal calms the mind while the delicate scents of chamomile, floral Horwood, and grounding sage oils enhance peace of mind and serenity. Meditate with sodalite to let go of daily concerns and to focus on simply being.
Known for its fine fragrance, rose provides calming and relaxing properties. One researcher studied the effect of roses vs rotten eggs on women’s dreams – the results weren’t surprising. Women who were exposed to rotten egg smells were more likely to have nightmares while those who were exposed to the rose were likely to have happy dreams.
To achieve these benefits, use the Aluminate Life Sleep Signature Candle. This candle contains rose quartz crystal and the calming scents of rose, lavender, and vanilla. Light the candle during your evening bath to promote relaxation!
Used in calm candles, sage is known to cerebrally, emotionally, and spiritually clarify the mind. It also exhibits a soothing effect on the senses to ease negative moods such as fatigue. A 2016 research project for the University of Mississippi established that the scent contains compounds that activate brain receptors that are responsible for reducing stress and even alleviating pain.
The Aluminate Life Calm candle tin will help you achieve tranquility. It contains sodalite crystal that calms the mind and delicate chamomile, floral Horwood, and grounding sage oils to promote peace of mind and serenity. Meditate with Sodalite to let go of daily concerns and to focus on simply being.
Bergamot has a calming effect and can help reduce anxiety. A study conducted in 2013 reported that aromatherapy with bergamot can relieve depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders by signaling the brain to release dopamine and serotonin.
The Release candle tin will offer similar benefits. It contains an amethyst crystal that eases all pains and relaxing scents of lavender, bergamot, and frankincense to dispel anxiety and worry. Light the candle before you go to bed for relaxation and better sleep.
Super-relaxing candle scents may be helpful if you are struggling with stress, anxiety, and insomnia. But if you are living with severe mood problems or clinical anxiety, it is important to consult a doctor in addition to using the candles. Good luck!
