With the darker mornings and cooler weather, some of us might feel the “winter blues.” The changing seasons can affect your mood, and sometimes it can be a struggle to get through the day.
Try lighting a candle in the mornings to start your day on the right foot.
Studies show how aromatherapy can increase your mood and decrease stress. Aromatherapy triggers smell receptors that send messages to your brain to boost your mood. Selecting a candle with the right aromatherapeutic scent will help you get your day started off right.
If you need a little more pep in your step, light a citrus candle to improve your mental health and boost your energy. Scents like orange or lemon can remind your brain of sunshine and summer to re-energize your mindset.
