4 Health Benefits of Candles!

Chris Spowage

Candles are great for relaxing and making things look nice, as well as for a nice lighting effect. But have you ever considered the health benefits of them?
1 - Memory
Science shows that certain senses, particularly the sense of smell, link directly to memory. So if you smell something you've also smelled when experiencing something memorable, you will remember it easily and it will be much more vivid!
2 - Mood
Your mood also directly links to things you smell! Scented candles can directly change your mood - soft smells like lavender and berries can make you feel more relaxed, and more deeply and sharp scented candles like mint can make you feel adventurous and energised !
3 - Sleep
Soft-scented and particularly strong smelling or aromatic candles have been shown to reduce symptoms of insomnia and help people fall asleep faster! Be careful however, as these can prove a fire hazard if left un-attended.
4 - Allergies
Candles such as beeswax candles have been shown to reduce allergy symptoms and clean air, making it not only smell nice but also purifying the air!
There's our 4 health benefits of candles! Be careful, as although candles are fantastic, they do prove to be a fire hazard. Don't leave candles unattended, and if you do leave them in a bowl of water or try to take them away from flammable objects.

    After reading this article I now realize why I can remember certain memories when they are associated with a smell. I remember going to my grandmother’s house and smelling roses around her front door. Even though the roses are gone, I still can smell them when walking into her house. Perhaps this would be helpful tactic when trying to memorize something.
