How do CBD candles work?
Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is a naturally occurring, non-psychoactive substance found in hemp plants. Following a recent surge in popularity, research is underway to better understand the amazing benefits CBD can reportedly provide for the mind and body. Studies suggest that CBD can bind with serotonin (the ‘happy’ hormone) receptors in the brain, to naturally lift our mood. Like CBD, candles are also used to calm the mind and reduce stress levels, so it makes sense that the market has recently seen a rise in CBD candles.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite CBD-infused candles, all designed to soothe the mind and body…
Woodies UK creates a wide range of wellness products infused with CBD. The Pineapple Express Scented CBD Candle (£29.99) harnesses the healing power of CBD while infusing your home with gentle and refreshing fragrance. Woodies creates each candle using natural soy wax and coconut wax, along with a high concentration of CBD (100mg).
Epoch London creates a range of soy wax aromatherapy candles. The new Sandalwood and Patchouli Candle (from £14) is infused with premium 5% full-spectrum CBD oil. The distinctive, fresh scent of CBD pairs with rich earthy tones to create a calming candle, designed to promote relaxation and mindfulness. Epoch London hand-pours each candle into apothecary amber glass jars, before packing them in fully recyclable packaging.
Nay CBD creates a range of luxury skincare infused with CBD. We love the Moonlight Massage Candle (£39) which acts as both a candle and a conditioning body oil. Simply light the candle then extinguish it once a pool of wax has melted. Then massage the melted oil into your skin – or pour it into a bath! Nay CBD infuses the candle with coconut oil and CBD oil, along with sandalwood, lavender and jasmine essential oils. Luxury skincare at its most relaxing!
Raised Spirit creates Organic Hemp Candles (£24.99) which contain full spectrum CBD, along with a bespoke blend of 6 organic essential oils including cedarwood and lavender. The candle uses sustainable rapeseed wax, slow-burning hemp wicks, a glass jar, and a bamboo lid, making it eco-friendly too!
Liminal Beauty creates luxury CBD candles (£40). The candles contain 500mg CBD, which Liminal Beauty extracts from organically grown Cannabis plants. The CBD is blended with a coconut wax blend, and lightly fragranced with either rose or sandalwood.
