5 Ways Burning a Candle Can Benefit You

The benefits of scented candles go well beyond just the smell. The right scented candle creates a multi-sensory experience that not only lifts your mood but will help to solidify memories too. After all, scent is one of the best memory triggers.

Our Ibilẹ Collection is perfect for setting a mood and satisfying multiple senses. Here are our favourite candle burning tips.


The benefits of aromatherapy candles in a romantic setting are numerous. Whether it’s a romantic meal or simply a relaxing evening at home, our Ibilẹ candles all feature wooden wicks, which gives you the feeling of sitting by a crackling fire.

How you set the mood is up to you, but we recommend scents such as our Lekki Lifestyle or Turari scented candles for the perfect combination of warmth and spice.


Scented candles are ideal for adding that final touch to your interior décor. They shouldn’t just be about adding scent, but the right candle will compliment your aesthetic too.

All of our Ibilẹ Collection candles come in stylish hand-poured concrete jars, meaning each one is unique. Not only that, but the wooden wicks burn bright and add sound to the experience too. We always recommend trimming wooden wicks before each burning to ensure you get the best flame.


Burning the right candle can be beneficial for your health, particularly your mental well-being. Whether you want energising or to relax, there are plenty of benefits of scented candles for lifting your spirits.

All our candles are made with soy wax, which is better for your health than paraffin wax. For a relaxing healthy atmosphere we recommend our Jade Orchid and Lotus Blossom, or for an energy kick, we recommend our Enjoyment candle.


Smell is one of the best ways to trigger memory, and so is a great way of remembering loved ones. You might find a scented candle that reminds you of lost loved ones, or something like our Cinnamon and Apple candle is perfect for bringing back memories of winter holidays.

You could also use a candle at a special event (such as a wedding) to help jog your memory of it in the future. The scent you choose for this would depend on the atmosphere you want to create. We always recommend trimming candles before you burn them, as this helps the wax to melt correctly.


There are plenty of benefits of aromatherapy candles in meditation practice. Scents such as our Osun or Jade Orchid and Lotus Blossom are perfect for creating a relaxing and mindful atmosphere.

Not only that, but the wooden wicks are ideal for visualisation techniques that require you to focus on a flame. They burn bright and consistent, and the crackling sound helps you focus your mind.


Burning a scented candle can have numerous benefits depending on your situation. Not only are they ideal for self-expression, but they can also help focus or energise your mind. Hopefully these candle burning tips have given you some ideas for how to heighten experience.
