How Soy Candles Can Improve Your Life

Candles have been used for centuries in so many different ways by cultures around the world. Some candle lovers burn them as an alternative to electricity, while others simply enjoy the soft glow of the candlelight. Whatever the reason, there are approaches that can improve your life overall.

1. Aromatherapy

When we break down the word aromatherapy, we get aroma and therapy.  Aroma means scent, while therapy means treatment, and together aromatherapy can improve your health, and overall well-being. Whether it's taking a whiff of a juicy orange when you peel it, or sampling a beautiful bouquet of flowers, these wonderful fragrances often take us back to times of which we are often fond. Taking a walk through our memories is not the only positive outcome of aromatherapy. There are other benefits as well. Inhaling the right fragrance can reduce stress, improve your mood, give you more energy, ensure a good night's sleep or soothe your soul.

2. Candlelight

When you light a candle, sure you may love the fragrance, and even the way the candle appearance enhances your home's décor, but the gentle flicker of the fire has so many therapeutic benefits. Candlelight is calming, soothing, and relaxing. The flame's soft glow touches the soul, warms the spirit and eases the mind. Incorporate the tranquil and healing light of candles into your daily life and you'll see what I mean.

3. Feng Shui

Feng Shui, the ancient art and science developed in China, is a multifaceted body of knowledge that demonstrates how to balance the energies of any given space to promote good health and good fortune to those inhabiting the space. One of the basic principles of Feng Shui is the principle of five elements: Wood, Earth, Metal, Water and Fire. Candles are the strongest expression of the Fire element in your home. Candles evoke the energy of inspiration and purification. They warm up the energy in your home and help release daily stress.

4. Toxin Reduction: Soy vs Paraffin

While enjoying candles you should be aware of what chemicals you may be exposing yourself (and your loved ones) to. Paraffin candles release chemicals like toulene, which is linked to the development of cancer. Additionally, paraffin wax contains petroleum, which is not a renewable resource. When selecting your candles, chose candles made with soy wax. Soy wax is biodegradeable; is a renewable resource; and burns slower and cooler than paraffin wax, creating a longer burning candle. Now that you know what to look for, there's just one more important thing. Be sure they are made with pure soy wax, not a blend. You may see candles that are a soy blend but these candles usually contain soy wax AND paraffin. Make sure your candles don't contain dyes, chemicals or synthetic fragrances. These additives can also be harmful to your health.

At Mila Rose Boutique, our soy candles are made with 100% pure soy wax and free of any dyes, chemicals, toxic materials or synthetic fragrances.

Start improving your life and get ready to enjoy the benefits of soy candles.
