​Candles to Calm You

Hey there, fellow candle lover!

Let's talk stress relief, shall we? Because, let's face it, life can get pretty overwhelming sometimes, right? But fear not, because we've got a secret weapon in our arsenal: candles! Yep, you heard me right.

April is National Stress Awareness Month, and what better time to dive into the magical world of scented candles and their incredible mood-boosting powers? Trust me, when I say there's nothing quite like lighting up a candle to turn a hectic day into a moment of pure zen.

Now, you might be wondering, "But how exactly do candles help with stress?" Well, besides the obvious cozy ambiance and warm glow they provide, scented candles have actually been scientifically proven to lift our moods, calm our bodies, and relax our minds. Don't just take my word for it; there's a 2009 aromatherapy study conducted by Kathi Keville and Mindy Green that backs this up!

But here's the kicker: different scents have different effects on our well-being. And let me tell you, as the mastermind behind Book Scents candles, I'm all about crafting fragrances that not only transport you to the world of your favorite books but also give you that extra dose of stress relief when you need it most.

So, without further ado, let's take a peek at some of the stress-busting fragrances you'll find in our candles:

- Lavender: Instant relaxation in a jar! Check out our Sunny Window candle for the ultimate chill vibes.

- Clary Sage: Need a mood boost? Look no further than Echoes from Scotland to lift your spirits.

- Cinnamon: Feeling a bit frazzled? Cozy Reading Nook has got you covered with its refreshing cinnamon scent.

- Orange: Stress be gone with Plot Twist and Blaylock, two of our citrusy favorites.

- Lemon: Turn that frown upside down with Slow Burn and Plot Twist, packed with zesty lemon goodness.

- Apple: Keep anxiety at bay with the soothing apple blossoms in our Rocking Chair candle.

- Sandalwood: Find your inner calm with fragrances like Echoes from Scotland, Rehvenge, Phury and Book Boyfriend

- Vanilla: Butter Brew, Slow Burn and Rocking Chair are your go-to candles for a dose of happiness and relaxation.

So, there you have it! The next time you're feeling stressed or overwhelmed, just reach for one of our Book Scents candles, and let the soothing fragrances work their magic. Because who says stress relief can't smell amazing too, right?
