Re­set with a can­dle

Prima (UK) - - Your Wellbeing -

Many of us use scented candles as at­mo­spheric ‘wall­pa­per’ as we zip round the house, but they can pro­vide so much more. ‘Aro­mather­apy candles can help perk you up or wind you down,’ says Lara Mor­gan, CEO of Scen­tered. Try her sim­ple rit­ual, it’s bang on the money! Pick a fra­grance combo to im­prove your mood. Lara has a whole menu to in­spire us…

Clary sage and rose­mary to im­prove men­tal clar­ity.

Orange and grape­fruit to im­prove pos­i­tiv­ity.

Laven­der, ylang ylang and pal­marosa to help you to re­lax.

Cedar­wood and san­dal­wood to help you feel grounded and con­fi­dent.

‘Once the can­dle has been burn­ing for 15 mins, stop ev­ery­thing and sit qui­etly,’ sug­gests Lara.

Re­peat a pos­i­tive mantra to stop men­tal chat­ter, such as, ‘If at first you don’t suc­ceed, try, try and try again’.

Con­cen­trate on breath­ing. Take a short in­hale, hold for twice as long and re­lease with a slow ex­hale. Re­peat 10 times. THE RE­SULT? ‘You will be in a much bet­ter place, Christ­mas or no Christ­mas,’ says Lara. Try it and you’ll see. Find aro­mather­apy candles at scen­
