Candles & Stress

Candles are a stress reliever! One of the most powerful ways to enjoy the beauty of candlelight is during a moment of stillness and solitude when you shut out the world and tune into yourself. It also helps to add some décor to your candles. You can use seashells, flowers, crystals, etc… This also helps you to set the mood while adding style to your environment. Whatever the choice make sure your candles are in a well-ventilated area. Safety should always be your 1st priority.

Aromatherapy candles are perfect for calming your mind, alleviating anxiety, relieving your stress, and generally uplifting your mood. My best selling candle is my Signature Lavender Jar. The lavender scent is also known for its aromatherapeutic benefits of calming and stress relief. We all go through daily struggles, which is why we have to find positive outlets. Some people do yoga, some write, some shop, while others burn candles. A few will incorporate candle burning into these daily activities. The calming benefits are excellent, but it is evident that not every acclaimed scented candle can give you these benefits. Some are artificially made and are not ideal for getting that aromatherapy benefit because they contain a petroleum-based synthetic compound.

However, Apollonia Candles & Things has been into natural candle making for years with a wealth of experience. I know what it entails to give you the perfect candles for aromatherapy. When you order from Apollonia’s Crafts, you are entitled to get a 100% naturally handmade candle with natural and pleasing fragrances. One of the reasons to order a scented candle today is the benefit of aromatherapy. Your health is vital; a stress-free, less depressed and no anxious mind is a healthy one, make the right choice today and purchase a scented candle.

Here are some ways you can benefit from incorporating candles into your daily routine.

Morning StressMornings

Candles are a great way to kick start your day. Take a few moments to yourself and just focus on the flame while enjoying a hot cup coffee/tea. Start your day off with the peace of mind you deserve.

Consider lighting a candle at your desk, (on your break) if permitted. Taking a few minutes to clear your thoughts can help you relax both your mind and your body. It’s amazing how relaxed you can be by sitting quietly and focusing on the candle’s flame. Just be sure to never leave your candle unattended and don’t place it too close to paperwork, or anything that could cause a fire. 


Stress gradually builds up when you stop taking time out for yourself. Bubble baths are a great way to wind down after a long day. Light a few candles, turn off the lights and listen to your favorite tune while enjoying a hot bubble bath. Everyone deserves to have peace of mind. Relax and put your mind at ease, so you can have a good nights sleep.
