Scented Candles Stress Relief

In this beautiful 21st century that we live in

We have everything the we could ever want, things are so much easier than they used to be in the past our lives are filled with all sort of technology that make our life so much simpler then it was in older times but sometimes we do have one of those days that just puts us down and makes us lose our focus and accumulate stress.

There are so many ways of dealing with one of those special days where we feel like the world is crumbling around us, but as proven by many in the past including from my own experience none of them work as well as aromatherapy does.


Officially this technique dates back to 1937 when Rene-Maurice Gattefosse coined the term, although that was the first time someone named it this practice has been around for thousands of years in some cultures being used as a medical practice.


Nowadays having one of these relaxing sessions is much easier that in the past as so many candle companies provide a variety of aromatherapy candles the come in different scents such as lavender. But stay calm is that is not your thing you have a variety of scents to choose from according to your own tastes.



Does this work?


I can give you a whole big complicated explanation about this whole process and how it interacts with the human body but realistically we don’t have time for that the short answer is YES it does work, and it works like a charm.


As strange as it may seem this method is truly one of the best there is out there by targeting the scent receptors in our brain these particular smells help in releasing stress and calming the nervous system down.


This practice has an immediate effect and it is completely painless with absolutely no side effects to our body except the positive ones in which we feel so much more relaxed and prepared for life.


Best scents for stress relieve


I can honestly say that as a person living in the 21st century I have my fair amount of stress and using aromatherapy is my favourite thing to use after a long day and out of all the different scents I have tried only three have stood out and work wonders for me and I would like to share them with you, those scent are eucalyptus, lavender and ylang ylang.

Each of them has its own particular properties and can be used in different ways.


Eucalyptus is a scent that will work wonders on your respiratory system and if you are one of those people that have some breathing difficulties like I do that will be the perfect scent for you. If you pay attention to your next stress moment you will see that your breathing will change. Eucalyptus will help you breathe deeper therefore it will help you calm down and relieve some of that unwanted stress.


Lavender has the property to relax the nervous system when it gets overworked and when you are stressed out. It will also help you go to sleep a lot easier when you are in those stressful moments of your life and as we all know when we are stressed going to sleep can sometimes be a problem well lavender is the best solution for that.


Ylang Ylang has probably the best effect out of the three this scent interacts with your brain to make you feel happier and help you be more optimistic, that is a wonderful effect as we all know that the two feeling directly counteract the feeling of being stressed.
