Harnessing the Power of Intention: A Guide to Setting Intentions with Scented Candles

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, finding moments of peace, mindfulness, and clarity can be challenging. One powerful way to create intentional spaces and foster positive energy is through the use of scented candles. We know that fragrance can lift a room and change its ambience, and we’re inspired by that power. Beyond their aromatic allure, scented candles can serve as potent tools for setting intentions, transforming your surroundings, and aligning your energy with your desires.


At its core, intention setting is the act of focusing your mind and energy on a specific purpose. It's a conscious decision to direct your thoughts and actions toward a desired outcome. Scented candles, with their captivating fragrances, provide a sensory anchor for your intentions, making the process more tangible and immersive. 


The first step in setting an intention with scented candles is choosing the right scent. Each aroma carries its own energy and symbolism. For example, citrus scents are often associated with energy, vitality, and motivation, making them a nice choice for intentions related to productivity or focus. When setting an intention of self-acceptance or peace of mind, floral notes such as rose would be a good choice. The rose note will ease your senses and promote relaxation. Woody notes like sandalwood are grounding and stabilizing, making them a good choice for an intention related to confidence or courage.


Clear Your Mind: Find a quiet space where you won't be disturbed. Close your eyes, take deep breaths, and clear your mind of distractions.
Focus on Your Desire: Visualize your intention clearly. Imagine what achieving your goal feels like. Whether it's peace, love, success, or healing, immerse yourself in that feeling.
Infuse the Candle: Hold the unlit candle in your hands and focus on your intention. With each breath, imagine infusing the candle with the energy of your desire. Feel the intention becoming one with the candle's essence.
Light the Candle: As you light the candle, say your intention out loud or silently in your mind. Let the candle's flame symbolize the manifestation of your intention into the universe.
Be Present: Sit quietly, allowing the candle's aroma and flickering flame to envelop you. Be present in the moment, appreciating the energy you've created.


Crafting an intention demands a purposeful mindset, quieting the mind's usual chatter to allow a single, clear goal to emerge. The moments post-meditation prove potent for intention-setting due to the tranquil mind fostering clarity. We recommend setting an intention for each SCENT candle you receive through your candle subscription, this way you can focus your mind on different areas of your life month after month.
