For some romance and ambiance, we love candles. 🥰 But have you heard of the hygge lifestyle from Denmark?
From the beginning of October until the end of March, the lack of sufficient daylight influences the average Dane’s mental health. One of the means that the Danes mobilize against this gloomy period of darkness is the Danish “Hygge”. ”Hygge” is a way for the Danes to establish comfortability indoors.
Candles are an integral part of hygge, and the Danes love to burn candles all year round. Some people say that the concept of hygge started somewhere, with a source of light in the middle, and people huddling together, to keep warm. Togetherness is very much the heart of hygge. It’s common to create a certain atmosphere in your home, and at dusk lighting some candles, and sitting down together, and playing a game, reading a book, or watching tv. The candles are often tealights or scented candles.
We love this way of life to brighten the long days of Winter. And to help keep your indoor air healthier, beeswax is the superior choice since it releases negative ions which help to neutralize pollutants in the air like dust, odors and mold in the air, improving breathing and easing allergy and asthma symptoms.
