The Best Candles for Meditation
Listen…we all know the secret to having a truly accomplished day is to have a truly relaxing evening, and if you didn’t know, well…now you do. If you have trouble calming your mind or getting those thoughts to stop racing, meditation can be a great option. And if meditation sounds like an impossible task to you, don’t worry, we’ve got a list of candles below to help get you in the zone.
Egyptian Linen + Lavender Buds
It should come as no surprise to you that lavender is the first scent on this list to aid in relaxation, making our Egyptian Linen + Lavender Buds candle the perfect fit. Lavender is known to help calm the mind, recharge your brain, and improve concentration. There’s a reason why nearly every spa you set foot in has some variation (yes, there are different varieties!) of lavender in the air. It is essentially the first step in the stairway of relaxation. It can help improve the quality of your sleep and ease a multitude of negative emotions, including anxiety, stress, tension, and physical fatigue. One might feel so inclined as to say our Egyptian Linen + Lavender Buds candle is the one-size-fits-all of candles.
Rosewater + Hibiscus
You might be surprised to find such a distinctively floral candle on this list, but the scent of rose can actually be a fantastic scent during meditation to set your intention of fostering love for yourself and others. Because of this, our Rosewater + Hibiscus candle is the perfect one to have burning when you’re practicing self-love meditation or words of affirmation. The floral notes of rosewater help open the heart to receive love, as well as soothe feelings of disappointment, grief, and sadness. Burn our Rosewater + Hibiscus candle on days when you need to be a bit kinder to yourself and reassure yourself that everything will be okay.
Driftwood + Juniper
While our Driftwood + Juniper candle also contains middle notes of lavender, its base notes includes vetiver, a scent that is widely considered to be grounding and help you stay focused during your meditation. If you have a tendency of getting side-tracked during mediation or letting your mind wander too much, our Driftwood + Juniper candle is for you. The grounding properties of vetiver make it a scent known to relieve stress, mental and physical fatigue, and anxiety. The notes of vetiver, coupled with lavender, make our Driftwood + Juniper candle a one-two-punch solution to any negative feelings you may be facing.
Stress can creep on you anytime during the year, but we know the holidays especially can put a strain on your well-being, despite being considered the “most wonderful time of the year.” So, while you’re planning the stuffing for the turkey and the gifts to go under the tree, don’t forget to take care of yourself too. After all, you need to make sure your cup is full before you go pouring into anybody else’s. Our candles can help refill your cup one deep breath at a time.
