Scents to get us energised

With the days getting shorter, mornings and evenings darker, and the weather colder, it’s easy to feel a little deflated at times. But what better way to pick yourself up than with a zesty, energising scent – guaranteed to put a spring in your step! Whether you’re feeling a little down in the dumps or you want to add a little colour to your home, our scented candles are sure to do the trick!

It’s no secret that our fabulous scented candles are powerful. From comforting you on dark, cold evenings, to enhancing your productivity when you’ve got a list of household chores – they’re useful in just about any scenario! According to aromatherapy expert Beverley Hawkins, scent is the most powerful of our senses and consequently has the ability to alter our brain activity. She explains that simply taking a sniff of scents like lemon, lavender, rosemary, jasmine or cinnamon can improve mood. Scents like these also have the power to boost energy levels, diminish headaches, increase confidence and invigorate the mind.

But what scents should we be taking advantage of right now? What ingredients are guaranteed to make us smile and give us some ‘get up and go’? Let’s find out…

We all get those days where it’s a struggle to get out of bed and wake up our foggy head. On those days you need rosemary. The essential oil helps to improve your focus and concentration.
