Benefits of Crystal Candles

Lighting your favourite candle can instantly create an ambience and set the stage for relaxation in your home. At Jade + June, we wanted to take this concept a step further by infusing our handmade, soy candles with the energy of crystals. The result is a unique sensory experience that promotes well-being and balance.

In this article, we’ll explore how crystal candles work, their benefits, and how to use them to elevate your space.

How Do Crystals Work?

Crystals have been used for centuries in various cultures for their reputed healing properties. Each type of crystal is believed to emit specific vibrations that can influence our energy fields or aura. 

This concept is rooted in the idea that everything in the universe, including our bodies, comprises energy. When crystals are placed in our environment or used in personal practices, they can help to balance and harmonise our energy, promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

What Does a Crystal Candle Do?

A crystal candle is more than just a source of light and fragrance; it’s a holistic tool that combines the soothing effects of aromatherapy with the metaphysical properties of crystals, offering a unique and enriching way to enhance your space and well-being.

As your candle burns, it releases a beautiful fragrance into the air creating a calming or uplifting atmosphere (depending on your chosen scent). Meanwhile, the crystals inside the candle are believed to enhance its effects by infusing their unique energetic properties into your space.

This ritual can become a part of your self-care routine, providing not just sensory pleasure but also spiritual nourishment.

What Are the Benefits of Crystal Candles?

Each crystal has its own unique properties and benefits; some are great for relaxation, whilst others are more uplifting. When creating our candles, we’ve taken care to pair each fragrance with crystals that complement and enhance their effects.

Here are some examples of the benefits of crystal candles, plus our top choices from the Jade + June range:

Enhanced Relaxation and Calm: For those seeking relaxation, our Luna candle featuring Lavender + Tonka Bean is a perfect choice. Luna is paired with Amethyst known for its calming properties, which can help to reduce stress and anxiety. Combined with the soothing scent of lavender, this crystal candle is ideal for unwinding after a long day and is a great addition to your bath or pre-bedtime routine.

Increased Focus and Positivity: Our Flora candle, featuring Australian Florals + Honey with Citrine, fills your home with the fresh, uplifting scent of native blooms, whilst Citrine is often associated with abundance and positivity. This combination helps foster a positive mindset, making it perfect for workspaces or areas where creativity flows.

Grounding and Protection: For those seeking protection and grounding, our Maia candle, featuring Sandalwood + Clove with Tiger’s Eye, is a great choice. Tiger’s Eye is known for its grounding properties and can help to protect against negative energies. The rich, warm scent of sandalwood complements this stone’s protective qualities, making it a great addition to your meditation space.

Energy Cleansing: Our Yara candle is a blend of Lemongrass + Lime with Smoky Quartz and is perfect for those who want to cleanse and refresh their space. Smoky Quartz is believed to dispel negative energy and detoxify your environment. Meanwhile, the fresh, zesty fragrance of lemongrass and lime enhances this cleansing effect to leave your space feeling revitalised.

How Do You Use Crystal Candles?

Using crystal candles is simple and intuitive. Here are some of our favourite ways to use crystal candles in our daily lives:

Set Your Intention: Before lighting your candle, take a moment to set an intention. This could be anything from seeking calm and relaxation to inviting positivity and abundance into your life. Hold the intention in your mind as you light the candle.

Create a Sacred Space: Place your crystal candle in a space where you can enjoy its benefits fully. This could be your living room, bedroom, or a special meditation area. Ensure the space is clean and clutter-free to promote positive energy flow.

Reflect: Sit quietly and focus on the candle’s flame. Watching the crystals emerge from the wax can be a meditative experience, reminding you to stay present and appreciate the small moments of beauty in your day.

Meditate: Incorporating crystals into your meditation practice can be a powerful tool to amplify your intentions. Close your eyes and go within. Allow the fragrance to fill the room and breathe deeply. Visualise the crystal’s energy surrounding you and enhance your intention. 

Keep Your Crystals: Once the candle has finished burning, you can keep the crystals and place them in a pouch next to your bed, in your handbag, or even in your car. 

When there is about 1cm of wax remaining, carefully use a heatproof utensil (like a spoon or tweezers) to extract the crystals. Then, place your crystals in a strainer and run under hot water to remove any excess wax, and allow them to dry naturally. Cleanse your crystals regularly in the moonlight to recharge their energy.
