We Love Candles: 10 Candle Benefits And How Our Candles Are Created

Candles are a fantastic and sometimes essential way to add beauty and ambience to any room in your home. Candlelight is also shown to have many health benefits, both mentally and physically. There are hundreds of candles out there for you to choose from. Still, they all have in common their ability to make the environment around them feel more calming and relaxing. We love candles; of course, we do! We wanted to share our story on how we got started and what it takes to maintain handmade products using only high-quality ingredients like 100% soy wax and essential oils!

A little about The Calm Society and our story of origin.

The Calm Society is a family-run company built on simplistic values. Many moons ago, we found refuge in candles and their ability to transform any room into a calming oasis. Candlelight has been shown to have antidepressant effects and create an ambience conducive to relaxation. This love of candles and their ability to improve our moods led us on a journey to create our own. We wanted to ensure that the ingredients we used were of the highest quality and that each candle was handmade with love and care.

How long have candles been around?

Candles have been around for centuries, with their origins dating back to as early as 3000 BC! They were used in ancient times for religious ceremonies and to ward off evil spirits – yikes! It comes as no surprise that candles have continued in popularity over the years because of their ability to create a warm and relaxing ambience.

What are some benefits of candles?

There are many benefits to using candles, both mentally and physically. Burning those wicks has been shown to help reduce stress levels, create a sense of calmness and relaxation, and improve moods. It can also help enhance the quality of sleep and reduce insomnia. They’re even known for their ability to purify surrounding air by removing harmful toxins!

How are The Calm Society candles made?

Our candles are handmade in small batches using only the highest quality ingredients. We use 100% soy wax, a natural, an eco-friendly and renewable resource. Soy wax is also known to burn cleaner and longer than other waxes, making it a more sustainable choice. We also use essential oils in our candles, known for their therapeutic properties. The combination of soy wax and essential oils results in a candle that burns cleanly and evenly, releasing a beautiful fragrance as it melts. To be honest, you can smell the relaxation already, right?

What makes TCS candles different?

One thing that sets our candles apart from other brands is the quality of ingredients we use and the brand values we adorn. We only use soy wax and essential oils in our candles, which means they are made with high-quality ingredients that burn purely. They’re handmade in small batches to meet our ludicrous quality standards with every single one, getting our loving care and attention from start to finish.

We get asked all kinds of questions here at The Calm Society… We’ve handpicked a few that we think need answering…

Do candles expire?

Candles don’t expire in the same way food products do, but the candle’s scent can fade over time. If you’ve got a candle, make use of it as soon as you can. You’ll thank us later!

Are your candles vegan-friendly?

Absolutely, our candles are vegan-friendly. They’re made with 100% soy wax and don’t contain animal products or byproducts.

Why do candles flicker?

Candles flicker because the flame isn’t a perfect circle. The flickering of the flame is also affected by the wind, so it’s crucial you place candles in somewhere they won’t be disturbed too much.

Where does the wax go once melted?

The wax burned in a candle is vaporized and turns into gas. This gas then burns, which creates the flame in the candle. Voila!

What are some good ways to use candles?

There are many different ways to use candles. Some of our favourites include using them to create a relaxing ambience in the home, providing light during power outages, and using them as aromatherapy. Candles can also be used for wedding ceremonies and receptions or simply make any room feel cosy!

Do you have any safety tips for using candles?

When using candles, it’s essential to follow some basic safety tips. Here are a few to keep in mind:

– Place candles in a safe place, away from flammable objects

– Do not leave candles unattended

– Trim the wick to ¼ inch before lighting

– Keep candles out of reach of children and pets
