The Top 6 Candles for Anxiety

candles for anxiety

If you are looking for the top candles for anxiety, you’ve landed in the right place!

A bit of self-disclosure: I suffer from extreme anxiety to the point of panic attacks. A companion to anxiety and panic attacks is depression. Through the years, I have tried every therapy known. What does that have to do with candles?

The Benefit of Candles on Mental Health

I have found the best way to help alleviate my mental health issues by using meditation and candles.

I want to make it extremely clear that my methods are used by me and are not meant to be a cure or medically advised treatment. What I can say is that it has helped me cope with my anxiety and stress. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information.

In my worst moments, my blood pressure rises. I can’t breathe comfortably, and my head hurts. Referencing a previous blog, Top 10 Benefits of Candles, scents can trigger parts of the brain responsible for emotions and memories.

For me, I know what to do. I find my quiet place, light a candle(s), and get quiet. I used a variety of our candles to help me quiet my mind. If you would like to try a candle stress relief, try Candle Gazing: a Meditation Candle Guide.

Top Candles for Anxiety

Here are the top six candles to meditate with from Southern Oak Artisan’s current line.

1. Namaste

It’s just like it sounds. I use this each time I practice my yoga. It’s a scent that puts me in the mood for asana flows, nice stretches, and a serene mind.

2. Lavender Fields

Lavender is the number one sought-after candle scent, especially when you are trying to gain some stress reduction and sleep. Perfect for a cozy bath before bed.

3. Water

This soft scent leads your mind’s eye to a bubbling brook or a babbling stream. Either way, it calms you like laying beside a mountain pool of water on a cool spring day.

4. Forest Bathing

Ahhh. Let’s walk barefoot through the forest. Or maybe…a swing or a nice place to sit outside. Close your eyes and picture the sights and sounds of the cool and ancient forest. Such a great relaxation!

5. Cucumber Melon Serenade

What’s a spa without cucumber and melon? Lay back, put on some nice soundscape music, and melt the day away, meditating on the good things in life. Like summer and fruit, and melons, and…well you get the picture. 

6. Wood Nymph

Hear me out. This is our number one most-sold candle in our entire classic line. Nothing says relaxation like our Wood Nymph candle and a glass of wine.

Try Natural Soy Wax for Anxiety

These are our top six fragrances for stress reduction. While these are our choices, we have other amazing scents that can take you to a place where stress does not exist, from fruit scents all the way to the exotic. Like all things, each to his/her own. 

The most important thing here is ensuring we all are doing okay. Wherever we are in life, it’s imperative that we, the collective, are aware of stress and what it can do to someone. 

Being mindful and remembering to breathe alongside a clean scented candle is a great meditation. You can also try the Anxiety Attack 5 Things ground exercise that helps reduce stress.
