Can Scented Candles influence your mood and mental health?

Updated: Aug 16, 2022

"It is scientifically proven that scented candles can play an essential role in the physiological effects of mood, stress, working capacity, and overall mental health," Chryssa Chalkia, accredited clinical integrative psychotherapist and cognitive behavioral therapist.

Our sense of smell plays an important role in the way our body reacts to stress.

Fragrances have been used for thousands of years to assist in treating physical and psychological well-being of humans.

Different fragrances work on our brain in different ways.

They can act to improve your mood, and reduce anxiety, fatigue, stress or tension.

I guess this explains why we desire and enjoy different fragrances, it depends on how we are feeling on that day which fragrance will have the biggest effect.

At Classic candles of Stroud we offer Australian Hand Made Soy Candles in a large range of luxury fragranaces based on essential oils, which we are sure will provide a suitable choice for your emotional and mental health needs.

I found this table on National Candles Association website so thought I would share. Hope you find it useful in choosing the right frangrances for improving your mood and mental health.
