How to Create a Relaxing Space with Candles

Creating a relaxing space at home can significantly improve your mental and emotional health. Here’s how to use candles to achieve this:

Strategic Placement

Place candles in areas where you spend most of your relaxation time, such as the living room, bedroom, and bathroom. Grouping candles of different heights can add a decorative touch while providing ample light.

Choosing the Right Candles

Opt for aromatherapy candles with scents like lavender, eucalyptus, and bergamot to enhance the calming effect. Soy candles are a great choice as they burn cleanly and release their fragrance slowly.

Combining Elements

Enhance your relaxation space by combining candles with other calming elements such as soft music, cozy blankets, and comfortable seating. This multi-sensory approach can help you unwind more effectively.


By thoughtfully placing and choosing your candles, you can create a relaxing oasis in your own home. Light your favorite candles, sit back, and enjoy the tranquility.

Consider creating your very group by visiting the candle making studio at Honest Art in Ardsley, NY.
