Mood Boosting Candles to Help Make Life a Little Brighter
If you’re looking for a natural way to boost your mood, surrounding yourself with invigorating scents that you love is a great place to start. Sometimes the best way to get rid of the blues is to stimulate your senses with something unexpected, like a smell that you associate with a beloved memory or your happy place.
Since one of the strongest of your five senses is the sense of smell, holistic approaches to health and wellness like aromatherapy are very popular. There are several benefits to mental and physical health that are thought to be associated with aromatherapy, including:
Reduced anxiety and depression
Better quality of life
Better emotional and mental health
Many people use candles to promote calm, relieve stress from a busy day, or to make their home cozier and more inviting. Whatever your reason for lighting scented candles, the right scent can help boost your mood and energize you physically and spiritually for whatever the day holds.
If you’re interested in giving yourself a daily mood boost with a new scented candle that also happens to have a jewelry prize inside, one of the Jackpot candles listed below might be the perfect choice.
One reason you might need a mood booster is because of the seasons, especially if you live somewhere where it snows more of the year than not. If you’re in a winter wonderland wishing for spring to hurry up and get here, then the Sweat Pea candle will lift your spirits. Physically you might be in your living room but mentally you’ll be in the season of rebirth and rejuvenation as you soak in your candle’s rich undertones of fresh berries and the scents of a sun filled garden.
If you like Sweat Pea or are looking for another garden-style treat for your senses, check out our Lavender and Lilac candles too.
If one of your favorite memories is of a fun Sunday filled with breakfast treats and day drinking with your best friends, then the scent of our Sunday Brunch candle will help get you out of an emotional slump. With fruity top notes of apricots, peaches, and pears and a base of sugary sweet vanilla, all the best elements of brunch combined will be the mood boost you need to get energized an enjoy your day, even if it’s only Tuesday. . .
Nothing is a better of reminder of summer fun at a picnic, family reunion, or your annual 4th of July party than the taste and smell of a juicy watermelon. If you’re feeling down the signature scent of summer might be just what you need to boost your mood. Jackpot’s Watermelon Sugar candle releases an aroma of fruity watermelon layered with sweet vanilla that will restore you mentally and turn any room in your home into a summer sanctuary.
There are few things that will brighten up your day like a glass of chardonnay, especially when you’re ready to wind down for the night or wind up for a fun evening with friends. Recreate that feeling of bubbly magic with the scent of citrus and elderflower layered with notes of sandalwood. Whether you want to relax and unwind or invigorate and boost your mood, the scent of a sparkling chardonnay will trick your nose-pallet and transform your environment.
If boozy aromatherapy sounds like a good choice to boost your mood, the Pinot Noir candle is a great alternative if you prefer red wine to white.
If you dream of escaping the challenges of your busy life and have fond memories of a dreamy tropical vacation, then the scent of the Bamboo candle is going to boost your mood and transform your space. This candle combines the scent of white florals and sparkling citrus with lush greens and fresh bamboo for the ultimate aromatherapy, spa-style experience.
