Discover the Soothing Power of Aromatherapy: The Benefits of Using New Zealand-Made Candles

Have you ever wanted to try aromatherapy?

Well, it’s not just about scented candles, specialty soaps, and fragrant oils from your favourite spa. More importantly, it’s not just a typical relaxing, pampering session, it’s a holistic approach to wellness that uses natural fragrances to enhance your physical and emotional health. The practice involves the inhalation or topical application of essential oils through various methods such as massages, baths, diffusers, and candles. Extracted from plants, flowers, and other natural sources, these products are used to create calming and therapeutic effects on your mind and body.


Health Benefits

Using aromatic candles can improve your mood and enhance your overall well-being as the essential oils are burned off by the candle thereby creating that scent that you inhale. Since these are extracted from plants, flowers, and other natural sources, certain scents can provide calming and stress relief. Once your stress levels are reduced, you will feel more relaxed, happy, and content.

Another thing to know is that lighting a scented candle in any room can create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. This can help you unwind after a long day and promote better sleep. With improved sleep, you'll be more rested and ready to take on the next day.


Finding that Distinctive “Kiwi” Scent

The unique aromatic scents used in New Zealand-made aromatherapy candles vary greatly and depend on the specific brand and product. However, essential oils from endemic natural sources are used to create aromatic candles that produce distinctive "Kiwi" scents.
Here are a few of the most popular scents:

  1. Manuka - a floral and honey-like scent extracted from the Manuka bush.
  2. Kanuka - a fresh, woody, camphor-like scent extracted from the Kanuka tree.
  3. Lavender - a fresh and floral scent commonly used for relaxation and stress relief.
  4. Peppermint - a refreshing and invigorating scent often used to improve focus and concentration.
  5. Eucalyptus - a crisp and menthol-like scent commonly used to improve breathing and alleviate cold and flu symptoms.
  6. Lemongrass - a citrusy and fresh scent often used to improve mood and promote relaxation.


So why choose New Zealand-made scented candles?

Unlike other countries, many manufacturers create highly-sought unique items using high-quality natural ingredients that are both eco-friendly and sustainable. These candles are hand-poured, making them unique and special. The unique aromatic scents used in these candles are carefully selected to provide the best possible experience for the user.
