Why turning off the lights and turning to candles is beneficial

In today’s world, we are constantly surrounded by technology and modern amenities that make our lives easier and more convenient. One of these amenities is electric lighting, which has thankfully become the norm in most households. However, there are still many benefits to using candlelight instead of electric light.

Candle light provides a warm and cosy atmosphere.

The soft glow of a candle creates a relaxing and calming environment, which is perfect for unwinding after a long day. The flickering flame of a candle also creates a mesmerising effect, I see it as a little life, which can be very soothing and great for meditating.

candle light is much more aesthetically pleasing than electric light.

Candles come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colours, which can be used to create a beautiful and unique ambiance in any room. They can be used as decorative pieces to team with your interior or as functional lighting. They can be arranged in different ways to create different moods and atmospheres.

Candles can be made from natural materials, such as beeswax or soy wax, which are renewable resources. We are a vegan company so don’t use beeswax, although I am a beekeeper The containers in which candles sit can be recycled or reused, read our blog on Recycling old containers here which reduces waste and helps to conserve resources.

Candles can be used as aromatherapy.

Many candles are scented with essential oils, which can have a variety of therapeutic benefits. The heat of the candle gently scents your space. Lavender oil is known for its calming and relaxing properties. Peppermint oil is known for its energising and invigorating effects.
