Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Be Burning Scented Candles

Scented Soy Wax Candle - Home Fragrance


The use of scented candles have recently become an important part of everyday life for most people during lockdown. With many of us having spent nearly 90% of our time cooped up at home for the best part of a year, we yearned for ways we could add a little variety to what became a very monotonous lifestyle. Something as simple as lighting a candle can drastically transform our whole mood and also the mood around us. Here are our top 5 reasons why you should be burning scented candles.


A well designed, good looking scented candle can be the perfect finishing touch for any room. The texture of the candle jar, the colour, the shape, the size and the overall look and feel can have a huge impact on the overall aesthetic of your space. You should want your scented candle to be versatile, to conform to whatever situation you need it to perform in. Whether it be the centrepiece on your dining table, or helping you to ‘zen out’ while you soak in the bath, or keeping you and your loved ones warm out on the patio, a well designed candle should add a little extra chicness wherever it is placed. 

One of our principals is that form and function are equal. We want to deliver great smelling candles that look good and fit in with your lifestyle. Our candles are designed to be contemporary, understated, intentionally simple and are great for just having out on display. 


From the soft glow of the candle light across the room to the scent that fills the air, scented candles have always been one of the go to items to help create the atmosphere you desire. 

The ambiance of a space plays an undeniable role in shaping the overall experience of its occupants. With a few strategically placed scented candles, you can harness the power of the senses to set the mood and tone you want to create. Think about the last time you walked into a room with lit candles, how did it make you feel? 


Candles have long been an integral part in the promotion of good mental health. Lighting a candle whilst in the bath, meditating or practising yoga is a proven way to reduce stress and anxiety. 

Here are some of the reasons many people light scented candles:

  • Calm the mind
  • De-stress
  • Improve their mood
  • Improve concentration
  • Recall past memories

Whilst these are all great benefits, what is also important to consider is the type of wax and wick the scented candle is made from. Some scented candles that are made from paraffin wax or have a wick that is made from lead, can release harmful chemicals and toxins into the air, which is not great for our bodies. We recommend seeking candles that are derived from renewable, sustainable and vegan friendly sources such as soy wax, coconut wax or beeswax. Cotton, Linen or Wood are also good choices for wicks.


Whether you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary, a graduation or baby, or simply just welcoming a loved one home, a scented candle will ensure that the atmosphere is befitting for the occasion. Our scented soy wax candles are a great little treat for yourself and make for the perfect gift. Celona London candles are hand poured and packaged by us to ensure the highest quality with every scented candle.


Arguably the most important aspect of a scented candle is of course, the scent. The choice of fragrances are vast, from floral to oriental to woody to fresh and everything in between.
