Best candles for sleep

Scented candles that help you sleep.

If you’re at a loss when it comes to sleeping then I’m right there with you; drifting off has never been my strong point, but having a healthy bedtime routine certainly makes sleeping easier for me.

My personal bedtime routine involves keeping tech out of the bedroom, journalling before bed, listening to brown noise and using scents that soothe and calm me.

Which is where scented candles enter the room; scents have central relaxant and sedative effects; therefore, they can enhance calmness and put you in the mood for snoozing.
