The perfect luxury scents to intensify your meditation session 

candle meditation

In many ways, scented candles lend themselves beautifully to the art of meditation. They’re amazing for transporting you to a state of total bliss, which can be a brilliant first step for the transcendental experience of meditation you may be trying to achieve. We’ve previously published a detailed post on how scented candles can be used in meditation, and this week we’ve gone one step further by recommending some of the most perfect scents to enhance your meditation experience – and the candles that use them!

Lavender

This one is a bit of a no-brainer to start with! The relaxing powers of lavender are well documented, and its sedative powers make it perfect for unwinding at the end of a tough day or week. It’s especially ideal for relaxing right before bedtime, helping all the trials and tribulations of the day evaporate away. If you’re the sort of person who meditates before you fall asleep, lavender is the perfect complement. (Although we should say – make sure you extinguish the candle before you do actually fall asleep, or it could end up being very dangerous!

The candle to choose:

Obviously, it’s Lavender! Replete with all the soothing beauty that you could ever want, our Lavender candle also includes a hint of eucalyptus, which also stimulates your mind and banishes mental fatigue. Our Still candle is another lovely choice – it’s a true spa fragrance that’s effortlessly soothing!

Jasmine and Patchouli

If you’re looking for a stress reliever and a mood booster, you won’t find much to beat this wonderful pair. Like lavender, jasmine and patchouli is amazing for helping to keep your tossing and turning to a minimum, improving your overall quality of sleep. Some people actually prefer it over Lavender, but that’s a distinction we’ll leave to you!

The candle to choose:

You’ll find jasmine and patchouli in our Angel luxury candle, which is well known and loved by our customers for its undeniably heavenly quality! As one of our most popular candles, its scent is accompanied by a celestial pale blue colour as it glows, making it the quintessential choice for a truly transcendent meditation session.

Nutmeg

Combining all the best qualities of the scents above, nutmeg is fantastic for banishing stress and anxiety, improving mental clarity, and improving sleep. To get scientific for a moment, one of the reasons it’s so good at doing this is because it activates several neurotransmitters in the brain, including serotonin and dopamine. Partially for this reason, it’s been used as a treatment for insomnia for centuries, with ancient civilisations such as the Greeks and Romans being amongst the first to discover its rest-enhancing qualities.

Nutmeg everything you need to know

The candle to choose:

You won’t have to look very hard amongst our range to find our Nutmeg and Vivier candle – its spicy, woody perfume makes it a favoured choice amongst many of our customers!

These are just a few of the options available, of course – you can explore our full range of luxury scented candles to find new favourites for yourself!
