Do you know about the benefits of candles?

Candles are known for their soothing, healing properties and are often used by therapists, such as massage therapists, to create a peaceful ambience in their therapy rooms. The sheer act of lighting a candle, its lovely flicker and the gentle glow it creates, helps ease and soothe the mind.

HEALTH
Burning candles can be beneficial to your health. Part of living a healthy lifestyle is self-care and taking care of your mind: lighting candles can provide the perfect atmosphere to induce calm and a sense of well-being. If you ever feel enveloped by fear or feel anxious, burning candles can help with anxiety. Some health benefits are much more direct: candling is used to get rid of earwax buildup.

MEDITATION & PRAYER
Lighting candles during meditation is a wonderful way to support your practice. There are many visualisation exercises and manifestation techniques that involve focusing on the flame of a burning candle while sending your intentions into the universe. Candles are also used during prayer.

Candles make perfect gifts and a┬ánice treat to yourself! Our candles at Chiliandginger candles are luxurious, affordable and sustainable.
