It’s the perfect summer day, a breezy 80 degrees with not a cloud in the sky. You have the day ahead of you to soak up the sunshine and the freedom—there’s no work, no chores and no stress whatsoever. Is there anything better? You can experience this every day with Homesick’s evocative summer candles, which are jam-packed with aromatics that can only be described as bright and delightful. The perfect warm-weather day is just around the corner, and all you have to do is flick a match.
Taking a little break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life isn’t just fun, it’s also good for your health, and aromatherapy can help you reach a state of deep relaxation in a real way. In fact, studies showed that aromatherapy can help reduce anxiety, increase sleep and even stabilize blood pressure, leaving you feeling like you do when you’re on day three of a trip to an all-inclusive resort, all without leaving your house. Here’s how to recreate a relaxing summer day simply by lighting a few of your favorite candles.
You start off your day posted up poolside, preferably under the cabana, with a citrus-garnished drink in hand. The air smells like a blend of fruit—oranges, lemons, pomegranate, coconut and pineapple—and bright, blooming flowers. There’s a cool, balmy breeze and the warm sun overhead. Each sip brightens your mood as you sink into a state of pure calm.
It’s lunchtime, which means a backyard barbecue is in order. The smoky smells of hickory, oak and maple mingle with spicy aromas of black pepper, cumin and nutmeg. An ice-cold beer or a glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade makes this midsummer lunch totally unbeatable. You crank up the good tunes (thanks, Summer BBQ Playlist on Spotify) and clink a glass with your best pals.
The afternoon is primetime for some swimming and sun-soaking. You head to the beach, spread out on a blanket and give the universal sign of happiness and relaxation—toes sunk deep into the sand, eyes closed. There’s a fresh, gentle breeze and you smell the sweet aroma of freshly slathered sunscreen and the salty sea.
Achieving a state of stress-free summer joy is easier than you might imagine, no matter the season, if you have the right aroma essentials. These emotion-inducing summer candle scents are sure to help make the stress float away, even if you’re a thousand miles away from a beach, a barbecue or an umbrella-topped cocktail. Remember: Paradise is a state of mind, not a state in the union!
