Best scented candles for sleep

There’s a scented candle for every mood and moment, whether you want to feel calm, uplifted or energised; but the most sought after scents are those that help us fall asleep. Sleep is fundamental to our overall wellbeing, and not getting enough of it can be detrimental to our health. In a world that’s designed to keep us awake and ‘always on’, it’s never been more important to find ways to priortise sleep to help us get our best night’s slumber. 

Aromatherapy has been known to promote better sleep, using essential oils to help us drift off peacefully. One of the easiest ways to embrace the art of aromatherapy at home is with scented candles. Not only does the ritual of lighting a candle before bed signal that it’s time to unwind, but this act of self-care can help soothe anxiety and stress after a busy day.
