Here's the thing. God created for us, an intricate plan to keep us healthy: mind, body and spirit... so replacing harmful things in my home & choosing a more natural, holistic approach to healing & wellness just made sense to me. So I began to do a little research. It all began with some of my favorite things, in my home and even in the church office. Where do you think I began my research?
Yes... you guessed it! It was with candles!! I mean really, who doesn't love candles?
Okay so now that we agree that everyone loves candles, let me ask you: When you think of them, how does it make you feel? Snuggly? Warm? I used to be OBSESSED with candles. I had them in every room. Used them daily!
Those feelings you get when burning candles are usually linked to those smells. The limbic system (the emotional center of your brain) is strongly linked to scent. Scents are connected to memories good + bad, so when we smell them it can bring back those same feelings that are imprinted on the limbic system.
