How to Use Candles for Stress Relief

Candles are used for stress relief because candlelight is known to have a calming effect on the mind. This soothing effect can be used to manage stress at the end of a rough day by simply taking a warm, aromatherapy bath while surrounded by a sea of restorative candlelight as you meditate on Scriptures like Walk as children of light for the fruit of the light consists of all goodness and righteousness and truth.
