Stress is a part of our everyday. Sometimes we need to soothe our senses and clear our minds with the help of a little aromatherapy.
Our coconut and mango, green tea and cucumber or snow capped candles are beautifully crafted for ultimate relaxation. They can help to create a calming atmosphere in your quiet place.
A warm bath to melt away your stress is a great start. Ensure that the water is warm enough to relax your tense muscles. Maybe add some bubbles or bath salts to complement your aromatherapy.
Light a few scented candles and focus your attention on one of the mesmerising flames. This will clear your mind and focus your senses.
Now gently close your eyes and turn your attention to your breathing. Inhale and exhale slowly to the count of three. If your mind begins to wander, let the stray thoughts flow out of your mind with each breath.
Relax and sink down into the bath as your body lets go of all your daily stresses.
Candles can be used in harmony with something that you already do to relieve stress, like taking a relaxing bath. But if you read books to relax yourself, set up candles next to you to enjoy the calming benefits of aromatherapy while you read.
You might even find that aromatherapy alleviates the stress of tasks that you might not enjoy, such as paperwork.
Or if you use relaxation techniques such as Yoga, Tai Chi or Meditation you might want to burn a candle to help enhance stress relief.
It's about finding what works for you.

Subscribe to our newsletter and always be the first to hear about what is happening.
Milly And Eugene was dreamt up by two young creative sisters with a passion for all things beautiful.
The decision to call their new venture, Milly and Eugene, evolved from the nicknames they were called as young girls. Hailey, was often referred to as Milly by Mum, Jude, as she named her after the famous 60's actress, Hayley Mills. Kate, was given the nickname Eugene, by her older brother, Martin, who thought it was funny to call her an "uncool name" (at the time) and enjoyed the torment and reaction he received whilst using it.
It was after an inspiring family holiday and both having recently completed home renovations, Hailey and Kate's desire to start a homewares company was in the making. Owning a chain of restaurants and retail businesses between them, the sisters are no strangers to hard work and the success that comes with it, so combining their passion and talent, it's no doubt, Milly and Eugene had captured the hearts of their fans. Milly and Eugene has evolved over the years, starting out as a small online business run from the garage of their homes, into their very own retail store and now into wholesaling, their beautiful wares to some of the best retailers around Australia.
It's Hailey and Kate's aspiration to bring you unique and desirable pieces, that have been hand selected from around the world, into your home.
