Over the past few years it is fair to say the world has seen many, many challenges, with the COVID 19 Pandemic, cost of living crisis, Ukraine war and of course the general feeling that things are pretty bad at the moment, which of course really affects mental health and in effect physical health as well.
Life is hard for many people, but with all of the events over the past three years things can seem much worse for everyone, and this has been proven by the drop in sales for high street and online brands over the past couple of months, which means people are spending less money because they are genuinely worried about how they will be able to afford everything they need as time goes on.
And this of course means people spend less on themselves, which can often affect their mental health because they can’t look forward to the little treats that they so dearly love and need.
When you are faced with difficult decisions in terms of money then the natural reaction is to cut back on the things that are considered treats or luxury items and just focus on making sure you have the basics and essentials.
This theory is of course very true and real, but in effect, by cutting out the things that make you feel good or give you a little perk every now and then and we include wax melts in this sentence, you are never really giving yourself something to look forward to and as we say, this really can hammer how you feel both mentally and physically, which can just lead to a vicious and endless ongoing circle of feeling low.
Wax melts are a popular choice for millions of people around the world and are probably now just as popular as candles if not more so, as more and more people switch over to wax melts because they are generally cheaper and you can have more choice of the scents and fragrances you want to burn. With a candle you are stuck with one scent until it finishes, but with wax melts, you simply empty the wax from your wax melt warmers and then replace it with a new fragrance, offering you a huge choice of options.
This is why wax melts can really help to improve your mood, because you can melt a fragrance that suits your mood, the time of the year or just simply something you love the smell of, and this can really help to relax you and help you mentally unwind from the day to day stresses that we are all seemingly absorbed by at the moment.
Whether you burn a lavender wax melt to help you feel really relaxed or you burn a really fruity wax melt to perk your spirts up, there are thousand of different choices currently around, so you will never be spoilt for choice. You can find an aroma that you love and stick with it or work your way through loads of different ones just so that you can build up a bank of the ones you love to burn and then rotate your favourites depending on how you feel.
Make sure you choose natural wax melts made of natural wax like Soy Wax or Coconut and Rapeseed because these types of melts contain only natural ingredients, so there are no nasty paraffins or chemicals that are not good for you. And make sure you go with a brand that has a load of good reviews, as you really do not want to spend your hard earned money on a load of wax melts that don’t smell very good or last a decent amount of time.
