Candles do way more for you then just make your home or a room smell and look good. There are many health benefits that go along with candles. One benefit is how smells affect our brains.
The scent from candles stimulate the limbic system in our brains. The limbic system supports a variety of functions including emotion, behavior, long-term memory and olfaction. Olfaction (the sense of smelling) is one reason we burn candles. Not only do candles look good in your home, the scents and smells coming from the candle can trigger hormones like serotonin and dopamine which help regulate our mood.
We associate candles and scents with a calm relaxed state of mind which help with anxiety, depression, and help promote positivity. Candles symbolize light in darkness and we at Kozy Barn want to help you find the light in the darkness.
