Lemon for Reducing Stress

TLC’s moments of “me time” are all about finding and creating small, yet intentional, times of the day were the health of yourself, whether that be physically or mentally, is a top priority. It could be the Sunday night before a busy week or an evening before a big day, the stress may be kicking in and making the anxiety run rampant. In moments such as these, when the world seems to be taking its control over us and the stress is becoming paralyzing, we must find a way to reduce the pressure. TLC’s moments of “me time” are all about taking these much deserved moments to deescalate and reconnect with the world. Finding a perfect TLC candle to light that will dissolve away your stress and bring your back to the strong, productive, and level-headed individual that you normally are is what these moments are all about and TLC’s wide array of candle scents comes in handy when attempting to find the perfect scent for your destressing moments of “me time.”

Amongst TLC’s diverse collection of beautifully handcrafted candles is a wonderous lemon bergamot candle; Verdant, filled with notes of fresh bergamot, lemon zest, and green tea that mix to form a beautifully airy and light, yet electrified with energy and life, type of scent that is sure to calm you even in the most stressful of moments. Bergamot, sourced from the peel of the citrus fruit citrus bergamia, is believed, in the world of aromatherapy, to have a direct effect on lowering stress levels. In a VeryWell Health article by Cathy Wong, it was mentioned that in a 2017 study, 15 minutes of exposure to bergamot essential oil in a waiting room, increased positive feelings within the test subjects. Many others also say that bergamot essential oils help in boosting confidence and happiness levels while lowering their anxiety and stress about a situation, as well as promoting sleep and easing symptoms of depression. The lively and airy scent of bergamot undeniably influences your mood.

Therefore, next time you find yourself pacing the room the night before a big event or find yourself being unable to fall asleep because of the overwhelming stress, consider taking a moment to light a TLC candle that could help aid in lowering your anxiety levels and bringing you back down to earth so you reconnect with your thoughts and feelings once again. In those moments when the stress of life is becoming too much, strike a match to TLC’s Verdant and take a few moments to feel your emotions and then dissipate them. Anxiety and stress are debilitating emotions that prevent us from performing in the ways that we normally would, so be an advocate for yourself and buy a candle from TLC that will help you reduce those stressful situations and get you back to yourself quicker.

We Have the Best Smells From the Farm

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.
