How can candles help your self-care practice?

Candles and self-care go together like lamb ragu and red wine. Match made in my opinion!

Did you know that 53% of women say their stress levels are higher than they were a year ago, and almost half feel burned out? (Deloitte 2022 Women at Work Report).

Looking after yourself and performing some kind of activity that nourishes your heart and soul is more important than ever before. More often than not, we’re all incredibly time poor, and lighting a candle is the quickest and easiest way to influence your mental state.

Candles for self-care and wellbeing

You may not have thought of using candles as a core part of your self-care routine before. However, they can create a multitude of benefits.

The power of scent – Certain scents have a direct effect on the brain influencing mood and emotions. For example, lavender has been shown to have a calming effect, while citrus scents have an energising and uplifting effect. Scent is also strongly linked to memories which can influence our emotions. We carefully and thoughtfully curate our scent combinations to offer you the most effective mood influencers and popular triggers of memory.

Creating ambience – The soft flicker of candlelight can create a calming, cosy and soothing atmosphere, which can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation.

Enhancing mindfulness - Lighting a CLC candle can be a simple way to create a mindfulness practice. By focusing on the candle's flame and the scent of the candle, you can practice being present in the moment and cultivate a sense of inner peace.

Self-care routines – Incorporating our candles into your self-care routine can add a special element to the experience making it feel more indulgent and luxurious. Lighting a CLC candle during a bubble bath, meditation or yoga session can create a spa-like atmosphere to help you feel more pampered and cared for.

Setting the mood – The soft lighting and soothing fragrance of a candle can create a more intimate and sensual atmosphere.

Offering a thoughtful gift – CLC candles can make a beautiful gift for family and friends. The love, care and mission behind these candles offer a personal and appreciated gesture to those you care about.

I know that self-care is hard to fit in. It often falls to the bottom of the pile. It requires consistent effort and support. Lighting a CLC candle is such a quick and effective way of adding an element of care into your day for yourself. You can burn your candle as you work, cook, whatever it is that you need to do, and let the scents permeate the air to influence you. Our candles are designed to be like a warm hug that we sometimes need from our friends and family.

More than a candle studio

Our brand mission centres around self-care and wellbeing, and changing the narrative that it's not a selfish or purely indulgent act but actually, something that is imperative to positive mental health.

That’s why we created a private community group on Facebook to offer resources, tips, laughs and inspiration, so you can stay motivated and connected to other women who are in the same boat as you.

No judgement, just support for your wellbeing.

To join the VIP group, you just need to sign up to the VIP list which can be found below.

Self-care isn't just about the pamper-y type activities (although those are great too!) Sometimes it's just about creating some space in your mind as you go about your day doing the things that need to get done. My goal is to help you achieve that through our range of products.
