Keep Calm & Head For The Beach!
Island Thyme Soap Company Beach Inspired Intention Candles - With A Sassy Twist
Those crystal and stone infused candles popping up all over in the market? They’re called “Intention Candles.” Some people believe the earth elements that embellish the top of the candle give off an energy that attracts all kinds of wonderful things like money, love, and health. The concept is fairly simple. When you light the candle, it illuminates your intentions, and when you meditate on your intentions, it releases your energy into the universe to manifest your wishes and desires.
But we’ve given the Intention Candle a slightly irreverent, slightly sassy twist.
We believe the power to improve your life lies not in the beautiful stones and shells that embellish our Beach Inspired Intention Candles, but in actually spending time on the beach! It’s not magic. It’s science!
Surf and Sand. Good for the Mind.
It’s no secret that spending time at the beach makes people happier and improves their physical and mental health. There is nothing more relaxing than a colorful beach sunset and walking barefooted while listening to the sound of the waves. In fact, research published by the NIH demonstrates the relaxing effects on the senses from the swell’s ebb and flow actually changes our brain waves’ frequency and puts us into a mild meditative state. According to psychologists, listening to the waves activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for slowing us down and allowing us to relax and feel more engaged. Scientists call it “Blue Space.”
The smell of the ocean also contributes to your feeling of beach bliss. This may have something to do with the negative ions in the sea air that you’re breathing in. A study published in the Journal of Alternative Complementary Medicine suggests that negative ion therapy could even be used to treat symptoms of seasonal affective disorder.
Be Mindful. Get your Vitamin Sea.
You don't need magic to improve your life. You just need some inspiration. Our first two Intention Candle fragrances, "Beach, p l e a s e" with notes of mango and coconut milk, and "Shell YEAH!" with notes of coconut, cocoa butter and amber are intended to do just that: inspire you to plan a trip to the beach!
And don’t forget your sunscreen
