Issue N°12: 3 Ways to Spark Self-Care with Candles

Issue N°12: 3 Ways to Spark Self-Care with Candles

Did you read that article in the New York Times last Sunday? Severe stress makes women age prematurely because stress causes the DNA in our cells to shrink until they can no longer replicate. So when we're stressed we look haggard. This is just women not men.

..... Oh, my God! See what I mean? I need a vacation!"

- Amanda (Cameron Diaz) The Holiday (2006)

Cameron Diaz's movie quote maybe alarming but unfortunately ... it's TRUE! Recently, Secret teamed up with Refinery 29 and discovered what is the reality of modern stress among millennial women. Their study found some unhealthy trends that impacted self-care and our ability to cope. "A survey of 1,000 millennial women ages 18-34: 43% Feel Unmotivated When Stressed and 27% Believe Stress Fuels Them To Do More".

No worries here! Because we have the most versatile tool you can add to your self-care tool box! Adding the Sophie Blake NY Home collection of scented candles to these three environments can refresh your self-care routine with added health benefits.

1) PLACE SCENTED CANDLES IN YOUR WORK SPACE 

Beautifying your work area with a luxury candle can bring a pretty yet subtle fragrance that can keep you focused throughout the day. Try SOPHIE BLAKE HOME's candle scent in Green Tea + Lemon. Powerful citrus scents like the lemongrass notes in this canda le help brighten the mood and increase concentration ... perfect for keeping boss babes focused!

2) FRAGRANT CANDLES TO PERFUME YOUR LINENS

Infusing your linens with the scent of luxury candles that smell good enough to relax you can add another layer of comfort and pampering. Try the SOPHIE BLAKE HOME Egyptian Amber Candle. The soft and warm scent has an inviting blend of jasmine and lavender. Both scents work together to relieve stress, depression, headaches and insomnia.

3) LIGHTING CANDLES FOR YOGA AND MEDITATION 

Create a sacred and inviting space within a darkened room lit by candles. Try the SOPHIE BLAKE HOME Oak Moss Candle. The deep and woodsy scent of oak moss and amber have restorative properties that are ideal for massage treatments and soothing irritation. The base note is anchored in sandalwood, which mimics the same benefits that people claim to receive from meditation. This candle is a perfect ten for getting you to a place of zen!
