Inspired by the featured Stay by Renee candle of the month- Stay Open: Eucalyptus and Peppermint
Stay by Renee created the Eucalyptus and Peppermint candle with one thing in mind- complete peace and solitude. Stay open is great for bath time because of the wealth of relaxation-inducing ingredients such as Eucalyptus and Peppermint.
Eucalyptus leaves are found on an evergreen tree that originates from Australia. The aroma of eucalyptus leaves provides a source of calming energy. Eucalyptus contains eucalyptol, which is known to reduce symptoms of anxiety. Furthermore, we found multiple research studies that indicate eucalyptus reduces patient stress levels in individuals when faced with stressful health and life situations.
The peppermint plant is actually a hybrid of two plants; the watermint and spearmint plants. These plants are native to the Mediterranean region but are also prevalent in other areas of the world. This scent isn’t only reserved for bathtime, peppermint is also known for being uplifting and energizing. Put down the coffee- some even report that peppermint is a natural stimulant, known to boost energy levels and increase mental clarity and stamina. Much like eucalyptus, it is also known for relieving stress and anxiety.
When you bring the two together, side effects may include the following:
- An intense calming sensation
- Reduced stress and anxiety levels
- Increased mental clarity and focus
- Increased positive energy
