Let The Scent of Provence Put The Spring Back Into Your Step

Provence lavender fields.

We’re approaching the time of year where we begin to feel tired and run-down, so it’s necessary to start thinking about little rituals that can help put that spring back into our step.  Petits Rituels explains the method behind the therapeutic rituals it aims to create with its Provence scented candle and wax melts...

It’s Provence’s scent that first awakens you.  Fresh and floral, its full-bodied and herbal aroma revives your senses upon just the first sniff!  You see; it’s a special, carefully-formulated blend, containing sensory delights which include organic Lavender, organic Rose Geranium (both sourced directly from the South of France) and Ylang Ylang.  Not only does burning this blissful blend indulges you in an emotional escape - cocooning your mind and transporting you on an experiential journey through the South of France - but it has therapeutic benefits too!

You may not be aware, but essential oils provide healing benefits as well as delicious aromatic fragrance. This is what Petits Rituels sets out to achieve with their homemade candles: incorporating 100% pure oils with therapeutic effects so that treasuring yourself becomes a habitual enhancement of your daily routine. 

The oils used in Provence encourage curative, nurturing and soothing responses when inhaled during your burning ritual.  French Lavender, Rose Geranium and Ylang Ylang offer relaxant, sedative, balancing, nervine and de-stressing properties which can have an effect on the body.  Lavender is calmly comforting, Rose Geranium is hormonally balancing and Ylang Ylang is a sedating nervous system tonic, anti-depressant and aphrodisiac.  Together in a blend, the oils in Provence work in harmony to relax and de-stress; inspiring restoration of tired minds and bodies, reducing stress and anxiety, building immunity, enhancing sleep, balancing mood, emotions, hormones and the nervous system, whilst being uplifting yet calming - and very sensual.

With this in mind, when you’re feeling exhausted and in need of re-establishing balance and harmony during this chaotic time of year, think of the Provence candle to renew your inner peace and wellbeing – and make it your regular, restorative little ritual.  What better way to revive?
