Gifts For Relaxing 

Did you know that hugs relax us? It’s true. When we hug our muscles relax, and our body releases happy chemicals (endorphins).  Hugging can also ease aches and pains and relieve depression symptoms. There has been a global shortage of hugs this year. With all the social distancing and PPE, it’s not been possible to hold our loved ones tight. The next best thing could be to give a gift that is relaxing and soothing.

Rose Geranium is loved by Yogis the world over and burns daily in meditation centers. The subtly sweet aroma of a Rose Geranium Essential Oil candle lifts away anxiety. Filling the nose and home with a light floral scent.

Perhaps you associate lemongrass with cooking? This delicious tasting and smelling herb is a wonderful addition to the home outside of the kitchen too. A lemongrass candle can relieve headaches and even migraines. The woody citrus scent helps us unwind and reduces feelings of stress.

Recent studies have found that rosemary can aid memory and reduce cortisol levels as well as a host of other health-positive benefits. It also reduces stress and worry. The combination of a Rosemary And Mint Candle creates a calming atmosphere in which to unwind and relax.

If you are still uncertain about which candle or scent your loved one would like the most, we have two helpful options. The Miniature Candle Gift Set contains three 10 cl candles, in the following fragrances: Take me to Bangkok, Honolulu, and India. Alternatively, you might like to buy them a Boyne Country Candles gift card. Both are available from our online shop.


About Boyne Country Candles

Each Boyne Country aromatherapy candle is handmade using 100% natural soy wax, essential oils and a natural cotton wick. Our luxury candles burn cleanly, and there is no sooty smoke or toxins associated with burning the regular paraffin wax variety. 

Boyne Country Candles is based in Navan in County Meath in Ireland. It was here that owner Denise Nuytten started making soy wax candles for friends and family. Realizing that more people wanted to buy handmade and healthy candles and gifts from Irish producers, Denise soon launched Boyne Country Candles.

Denise’s love affair with travel, holistic health and aromatherapy are the inspirations behind the blends and candles that are handcrafted at Boyne Country Candles. Each candle offers different benefits and is sure to evoke - or maybe create - many happy memories.
