5 Benefits of Burning Candles and Wax Melts

The popularity of scenting our homes with candles and wax melts has only been enhanced in recent years, with the increasing amount of brands offering such a variety of products.

Lighting candles and wax melts in your home can provide a range of benefits that go beyond the immediate benefit of making your house smell lovely; they can have a significant effect on how we feel in our space.

Here are 5 benefits of burning candles and wax melts in your home:


Our sense of smell is so often tied with memories; certain smells can act like a time machine, transporting us back to a period where that scent meant something special.

There's something magical about people relaying their own memories that are attached to fragrances, even the most simple, like the lady who once told me that our Rhubarb and Strawberry wax melts remind her of times spent sipping Rhubarb Gin in her garden!


The items you place in your home form part of your self-expression. Whichever brand of home fragrance you choose can impact your home décor and show your sense of style, alongside your personal scent preferences. Showing off what you love can enable you to feel a sense of pride.

We think our botanical wax melts give an elegant look and feel, and our patterned ceramic wax burners make a beautiful statement piece in any home.

Health Benefits

Burning candles and wax melts can offer several health benefits and improve your mood. When included as part of your self-care practice, they can help you to unwind, de-stress and create a sense of calm and well-being.

Taking care of yourself is so important. Whatever your relaxation involves, home fragrance is a welcome addition.

Ambience & Atmosphere

There's nothing better than the soft lighting produced from the flickering flame of a candle to get you feeling warm and cosy in your space!

Our pillar candles provide such an enchanting burning experience. Watching the tulip candle as the flame illuminates the petals is such a beautiful sight, and will transform your space into one that is both warm and welcoming!


Whether it means lighting a candle to signal the end of a busy day and the start of a cosy night in, or lighting your favourite fresh-scented wax melt after a mammoth cleaning session, making home fragrance part of your daily ritual can help to slow down your day, encourage healthy habits, and ultimately aid your self-care.
