Citrus for Happiness

March 15, 2021

TLC citrus scents

Sticky sweet fingers and sweltering humid days, the imminent coming of summer brings a new revival of life to the world around us with a rejuvenation of energy. Summer brings with it a new energy that blossoms with happiness that cannot be compared to the earlier months of the year. With this new breeze of happiness comes excitement, love, passion, and a new hidden drive for all that is within your life. Without constant small reminders and bursts of happiness in our worlds, life becomes a little dull. When we are not happy with ourselves or the position in life we are currently in, it's hard to be there for the ones that we care about, support ourselves and our dreams, and simply find joy amongst the small moments in life that deserve appreciation. Such as your morning coffee, being able to drive with the windows down, goodbye kisses, wiping the sticky citrus juice from your child’s hands – without happiness, we cannot appreciate all that life gives us on a daily basis and can neither give nor receive the love the world so desperately needs. However, just as TLC always promises, a little moment of “me time”, and a light of a specific handmade TLC candle, will undoubtedly help bring a little bit of happiness back into your world.

The aroma of citrus is an identifiable one with is mixture of both tangy sour and sickly-sweet scents. Adorned brightly with fluorescent colors and brimming with the overpowering scent of refreshing fruit, the smell of any citrus fruit brings with it memories of carefree times and when the scent in the air was refreshing and revitalizing. Candles filled with notes of citrus are perfect for replicating the intoxicating scents of citrus fruits and the carefree feeling of innocent happiness that they bring forth. In the world of aromatherapy, citrus is known for both energizing and manifesting happiness. Citrus scents, with their strong tangy aromas, stimulate activity in the brain and the production of serotonin, the hormone most closely related to the feeling of happiness. With increased mental functioning and a boost of hormones, the smell of any citrus fruit will leave you feeling confident and happy with your life. TLC’s Citrus Tree, with notes of tropical citrus fruits and exotic mountain greens, and Farmhouse, filled with mandarin, bergamot, and orange, are both perfect choices of TLC classics that harness the powerful scent of citrus fruits while contrasting them with something heavier and duller to make a beautifully elegant and calming scent that will certainly bring a gust of fresh air into your life to boost your happiness on the harder days.

During those times of life when you may be feeling a little burnt out or exhausted, and need a boost of reassurance and happiness, considered lighting either of TLC’s citrus adorned candles: Citrus Tree and Farmhouse. Happiness is the key to a successful and fulfilled life. We all must find happiness in the relationships and path of life we are on to continue living and pushing forward. So, when the days are starting to feel long and you need a moment to readjust your thinking, set aside a time for a moment of TLC “me time”, and light one of TLC’s citrus infused candles that is meant to uplift your mood and begin stimulating the production of serotonin in your brain. We all lose our gratification and happiness at times; however, TLC hopes that by striking a match to Citrus Tree or Farmhouse, one of their candles can help in bringing back some light into your life.

When we say we have candles that are “the best smells from the farm”, we’re not talking about the animal barn or what’s in the dirt in the fields. We’re talking about what’s beyond that, the roots of farming. Fresh produce, leathery musk, and the flowery smell that can only be found out in the fresh air. That’s all at the core of farm life and, for so many people, that’s home.
