Holistic Health: Healing Mind Body & Spirit
What is Holistic Health?
Holistic health is an approach to life that considers multidimensional aspects of wellness. It encourages individuals to recognize the whole person: physical, mental, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual. So, if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health.
According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health -- the primary goal of holistic medicine practice -- by gaining proper balance in life.
There are different types of herbal medicine practices such as Ayurveda which originated in India in 6th century B.C. by Sushruta known as “the father of surgery.” It focuses on the five elements of the universe, the seven elements of the body, and the three “doshas” or biological energies that each element represents.
Herbal medicine is the oldest form of health care where you achieve holistic balance and learn about the medicinal properties of plants. Western herbalism originated in Ancient Greece and Rome, then spread to Europe, then North and South America.
Principles of Holistic Medicine
Holistic medicine is also based on the belief that unconditional love and support is the most powerful healer and a person is ultimately responsible for their own health and well-being.
Candles have been used for centuries for many purposes. One of the lesser-known benefits of candles is their ability to improve mental health. The scent of candles can help to calm and relax the mind, making it a popular choice for aromatherapy.
Stress is one of the leading causes of mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression. Candles can help to reduce stress by providing a calming and relaxing scent. This can be especially helpful in cases where stress is causing physical symptoms, such as headaches or muscle tension.
Our therapy candles provide a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both psychological and emotional wellbeing.
Candles have so many uses in the home and are a great addition to a holistic or spiritual lifestyle. Burning a candle can be an integral part of meditation or mindfulness practice – focusing on the burning flame can help ease stress and aid relaxation. Scented candles help fill your home with new aromas and aromatherapy candles release the natural scent of pure essential oils, each of which has their own unique properties and healing qualities.
Our candles are all made with the environment very much in mind. We don't use petroleum products and we make sure that the products are sourced environmentally!
