How Handmade Candles and Homeware Can Promote Wellbeing

At Mysa Homeware, we understand that your home is your sanctuary - a place where you can unwind, recharge, and find peace. The way we decorate our homes and the elements we choose to fill them with can have a profound impact on our wellbeing. This is where handmade candles, luxury homeware, and thoughtful touches as simple as a grey bed runner or soothing home fragrances come into play. In this blog, we'll delve into how these items can enhance your wellbeing by creating cosy, comfortable spaces that promote relaxation and improve your daily performance.


The Importance of a Cosy Environment

A cosy home environment is more than just aesthetically pleasing; it's essential for mental and emotional wellbeing. A well-decorated home can evoke feelings of comfort, safety, and happiness. When you step into a space that feels inviting and warm, your body and mind can relax, reducing stress and anxiety.


The Psychological Impact of a Cosy Space:

  1. Stress Reduction: A clutter-free, well-organised space can significantly reduce stress. When your home is tidy and filled with items that bring you joy, it can help clear your mind and reduce feelings of overwhelm.
  2. Mood Enhancement: Colours, textures, and scents all play a role in influencing your mood. Soft lighting from candles, the touch of a luxurious throw, and the calming scent of home fragrances and handmade candles can elevate your mood and create a sense of serenity.
  3. Improved Sleep: A comfortable and peaceful bedroom environment is crucial for a good night sleep. Elements like a grey bed runner and soothing scents from handmade candles or a luxury reed diffuser can make your bedroom a relaxing retreat, promoting better sleep quality.
  4. Boosted Productivity: When you feel relaxed and at ease in your home, you're more likely to be productive. A well-organised and aesthetically pleasing home can inspire creativity and improve focus, enhancing your overall performance.


The Role of Handmade Candles in Promoting Wellbeing

Handmade candles are a cornerstone of creating a cosy and relaxing atmosphere. They offer more than just light; they bring warmth, ambience, and a touch of luxury to any room. Here's how handmade candles can promote wellbeing:

The Benefits of Handmade Candles:

  1. Mood Boost: Certain scents can help with relaxation or promote mood change. For example, lavender can help with relaxation and sleep, while citrus scents can energise and uplift your mood.
  2. Stress Relief: The simple act of lighting a candle can be a ritual that helps you unwind after a long day. The soft flicker of a candle flame is calming and can help reduce stress and anxiety. 
  3. Improved Ambience: Candles add a warm, inviting glow to any space. This can make your home feel more welcoming and cosy, enhancing your overall sense of wellbeing. 
  4. A Personal Touch: Handmade candles often come in unique scents and designs adding a personal touch to your decor. Handmade candles, especially Mysa candles, are all handmade in small batches with a candle making passion ensuring quality and perfection for every candle. Choosing candles that resonate with your personal preferences can make your space feel more like home. 

Choosing the Right Handmade Candles:

When selecting handmade candles for your home, consider the following:

  • Ingredients: Look for candles made from ingredients like soy wax, beeswax or like we use here at Mysa HQ, a natural wax, a blend of RS oil and Coconut oil. These are more eco-friendly and burn cleaner than paraffin wax candles. If you'd like to read more on the difference in waxes, have a read of this blog here. 
  • Scents: Choose scents that match the mood you want to create, For relaxation, opt for calming scents like lavender, chamomile, or sandalwood. For an energising atmosphere, go for citrus, peppermint, or eucalyptus. 
  • Design: Handmade candles come in various shapes, sizes, and container styles. Select candles that compliment your home decor and add to the aesthetic appeal of your space. Our handmade candles are neutral and minimal so that they compliment any home decor.


Enhancing Wellbeing with Luxury Homeware:
