Did you know that having a healthy night's sleep can help you live longer? According to a 2022 Canadian study, getting the right amount of sleep can help you live up to 2.6 years longer compared to getting too little or too much sleep. This means getting between 7-9 hours of sleep if you're 18 - 64 years old or 7-8 hours a night if you're over 65. This sounds good to me, but it's not always easy to sleep well.
The Harvard Medical School Guide to a Good Night’s Sleep recommends a variety of ways to help you have a good night's sleep, such as making your bedroom a cosy sleep environment, having a regular sleep-wake schedule, and having a calming routine before you sleep, like burning relaxing scented candles.
Calming scents can help you unwind from the busy day and prep your body for a good night's sleep. Try lighting one of these candles for a few hours as part of your nighttime routine to have a restful night's sleep.
Lavender is a popular calming scent and one of my most requested candles. Lavender Kiss is a beautiful lavender blend which will help to calm your mind and body. Lavender's calming aroma helps reduce anxiety and worry, helping your whole body relax before bedtime.
Vanilla is a comforting, soothing scent that can help you feel good and relax before bed. Studies have shown that vanilla helps boost serotonin and dopamine levels, making you feel less stressed and boosting your mood. The Saturday candle has feel-good notes of sweet vanilla cream, coconut, caramel, and brown sugar. It's the perfect vanilla-scented soy candle.
Rose is all about self-love, harmony of mind and body, and soothing the nervous system. The Roses candle has notes of rose, jasmine and amber, and is a calming, nurturing scent that helps to release feelings of stress or tension. Famously known as a scent for love, you can burn the Roses candle as an aphrodisiac to help set a romantic, sensual mood. This soft, relaxing candle is perfect for helping you feel calm anytime.
Whether you choose lavender, vanilla or rose, getting a good night's sleep has never smelled so good! Bring home a candle that's perfect for your bedtime routine today by visiting our shop.
Remember to always blow out your candles before going to sleep. Never leave a burning candle unattended and always follow the safety warning on the bottom of your candle.
