The Lavender Candle that gives back to mental health.
Why is this the best Lavender Candle on the market you ask? Because it's hand-made with the highest quality vegan wax custom-made just for Retreat. It also uses phthalate and paraben-free fragrances, has an FSC-certified wooden wick that crackles, and comes with a seedpaper bookmark to plant in your candle jar afterwards. OH...and it gives back to kids mental health initiatives. Feel good about what you buy.

Why lavender rocks...
From reducing stress to improving cognitive performance, see below why Retreat's lavender candles are beneficial to have in your home.
Why do you need a Lavender Candle in your home?
The benefits of a lavender candle go far beyond the calming and soothing atmosphere provided by the flickering wooden wick and gentle light emitted from the flame. Here are 6 benefits to having lavender in your home:
1. Helps Fight Insomnia: The regular application of lavender oil on your wrists or bedclothes may improve the quality of your sleep. A study at Wesleyan University used brain scans to monitor sleep cycles. The results showed men and women who exposed themselves to lavender oil before sleeping slept better. Further studies with seniors demonstrated progress with their sleeping patterns: a sprinkling of lavender oil on their bedding enhanced their regular bedtime routines. Additionally, a recent study discovered the scent of lavender boosts the time you spend in a deep sleep state, though the effects were more significant for women than for men.
2. Decreases Anxiety: Evidence suggests lavender may lessen depression and anxiety symptoms when taken in conjunction with regular medications. The refreshing aroma can eliminate nervous exhaustion and agitation while increasing mental activity. The lavender plant grows well in a variety of climates and is easy to maintain. Try growing lavender in your garden for a natural anti-anxiety remedy?
3. Promotes relaxation: The scent of lavender is known for its calming and relaxing properties, which can help reduce stress and anxiety. It can be used to create a soothing atmosphere in your home or workplace, promoting a sense of calm and tranquility.
4.Improves sleep quality: Lavender scent has been shown to help improve sleep quality by promoting relaxation and reducing insomnia. It can also help reduce snoring and sleep apnea symptoms.
5. Reduces headaches: The soothing scent of lavender can help reduce the severity and frequency of headaches and migraines. It works by reducing inflammation and tension in the body.
6.Boosts cognitive performance: The scent of lavender has been shown to improve cognitive performance, including memory, attention, and problem-solving skills. It can also help reduce mental fatigue and improve overall mental clarity.
