What Are the Benefits of Essential Oils?
Essential oils have been used for centuries for a variety of health and wellness benefits. Not to be confused with fragrance oils, essential oils are all-natural and contain unique properties to heal, calm, and invigorate.
The best thing about essential oils is that they are extracted from various aromatic plant material, they are Mother Nature's natural creations; FREE from synthetic fragrance, that can cause discomfort.
How to Choose Your Aromatherapy Candle?
When choosing an aromatherapy candle, you may consider three things:
Where would you be burning the candle?
Where in the house would you use this? For example, if it is for the bedroom, a relaxing scent like lavender would be most suitable, whereas a stimulating scent like peppermint and eucalyptus is recommended for the study room.
What is the season now?
Typically during the colder season, people would prefer a more grounding woody scent such as Cedarwood and Clove Candle. When it is summer or spring, a scent that is more citrusy and floral such as Lemongrass Candle or Rose & Geranium Candle would bring back nostalgic memories of road trips and a romantic stroll in the rose garden.
What kind of aromatherapy benefits are you looking for?
For Better Sleep
Synonymous with calming, lavender’s light floral fragrance has a sedating effect. It’s a common staple in spas and bedrooms because it promotes relaxation and lowers feelings of anxiety. In addition to Lavender Candles, many people choose to diffuse Lavender Essential Oil or other lavender-infused products like massage oils and body washes to relieve stress and sleep better.
One of our most popular essential oil candles amongst students and office workers in NZ is our Peppermint and Eucalyptus Candle. Peppermint is a natural stimulant, providing a cognitive boost and promoting clarity of mind. Eucalyptus is a favorite scent when you’re under the weather because it helps relieve congestion and other cold symptoms. As an added bonus, the antimicrobial properties of each can help to disinfect your home!
Lemongrass is one of the favourites in our essential oil candles in NZ. Studies have found that lemongrass has a “harmonising” effect on the nervous system. It promotes feelings of calmness and puts you more at ease. The scent of Lemongrass Candle is also very powerful for deorderizing kitchen and bathroom!
Citronella and Orange Blossom Candle can be used more than just repelling bugs! Its citrusy scent can also invigorate the mind and lift up your mood. Feel energised and chase away feelings of sadness or depression.
We combined our citronella scent with another citrus favorite, orange oil. Clean and crisp, orange gives you a brain boost and makes you feel happier. After a stressful day or when life throws you a curveball, this powerhouse duo can help to put a smile back on your face.
For Deep Relaxation
The potent, woodsy scent of Cedarwood and Clove Candle makes the perfect companion to the spicy scent of clove. Cedarwood brings an aromatic scent of trees and plants to your space, helping you feel more at one with nature. In aromatherapy, it’s commonly used to get a better night’s sleep. Cedarwood contains a compound called cedrol that can help you turn your mood around and make you feel grounded and in control.
The spicy aroma of clove is rich in eugenol, which helps to reduce feelings of stress. Clove oil is a favourite year-round scent because it stimulates the mind and leaves you feeling invigorated.
