March is here and it certainly marks a reason to smile! Not only is it the beginning of Spring but it’s also World Candle Day. A day dedicated to show how candles can be used throughout the year to create a unique atmosphere, from being calming to celebratory.
It is scientifically proven that scented candles play an essential role in the physiological effects of our mood, stress, and overall mental health. The calming effect of candlelight is such a simple tool to reduce stress and the mesmerising flickering light can be incredibly soothing.
Next time you have a soak in the bath, why not turn off the lights and light your favourite candle! Alternatively, try adding one to your working from home space, and spend a few minutes looking at the soothing flame whenever you are feeling stressed or just in need of a break!
So, whatever your reason for buying a candle, here are our top suggestions:
