There’s something about the simple act of gift giving. A gift builds your relationship with others and expresses your thoughts by more than just words. This simple gesture can express love, respect and appreciation to another person. 

Nothing is more meaningful than to receive a gift the receiver remembers for a long time instead of another White Elephant. Choosing gifts can be a stressful process no matter if it’s for your friend, lover, family or colleague. 

However, there is one gift that makes it perfect for everyone on all occasions and that is scented candles. Here are 6 reasons why candles make great gifts:

  1. Aromatherapy 

Aromatherapy is the practice of using aromatic essential oils for therapeutic benefit and has been used for centuries. When inhaled, they result in calmness, relaxation and increased emotional well-being.

A few popular essential oils with aromatherapy benefits are such as:

  • Lavender - used to relieve stress and insomnia
  • Patchouli - uplifts mood and promotes mindfulness
  • Sandalwood - calming and helps with focus
  1. Self Expression

Like perfume, scented candles are very individual as each person has their own taste and preferences. Our living space is a sanctuary and at the same time reflects who we are. 

Choosing a scent to express yourself at home, not only calms the space; this will be the scent your guests remember you by. At Borneo Candle Studio, we have a variety of scents to express just that and there is guaranteed a scent to match every personality and your story.

If you’d like to take gifting to the next level, you can add your recipient's name on the candle to include a unique personal touch.

  1. Invoke A Memory

One of our most sophisticated senses is our sense of smell. A sniff of a familiar scent brings back memories, emotions and places.

Studies have shown scents will bring back a memory in a matter of seconds. How does this happen? 

Incoming smells are detected by our olfactory bulb in our nose which is connected to the brain. Unlike other senses, the olfactory send signals directly to our amygdala and hippocampus which are brain regions related to emotion and memory.

Our scent collections is inspired by our memory, the nature and the mood we seek in our living spaces. 

  1. Decoration

Candles make great decoration pieces to any living space or workspace. Regardless of your home decor style, you can be sure to find a candle that matches your aesthetic.

  1. Gender-neutral gift for all occasions 

Whether it is for weddings, birthdays or holiday gifts the right scented candle will allow you to celebrate any occasion.

Who says scented candles can only be fruity or floral? Scented candles can be gender-neutral. At Borneo Candle Studio, we have a diverse selection of scent collections. From masculine, floral, earthy, woody and fresh: there will be a candle guaranteed to appeal to anyone.

  1. Adds coziness to any space

The flickering and glow from the candle flame not only illuminates your space but is also relaxing.

Even if you do not have a fireplace, candles will perfectly replace it bringing warmth and coziness into the atmosphere of the room. Plus, you never have to worry about power blackouts because you’ll always have candles ready on hand.
