Welcome to our blog on journaling and candles! If you're an avid journaler or just getting started on your writing journey, you know the power of putting your thoughts and feelings down on paper. It can be a therapeutic and transformative experience, helping you gain clarity, process your emotions, and track your personal growth.

But sometimes, finding the right themes to write about can be a challenge. That's where candles come in. The soothing scents of candles can help set the mood and inspire your writing, making journaling even more enjoyable and effective. In this blog, we'll be sharing 9 themes you can write about in your journal, along with some candle recommendations to enhance your practice.


Here are 9 themes with candle recommendations that you can use to jumpstart your journaling practice:

  1. Self-Care: Light a relaxing candle, such as lavender (try our Night Light candle) or vanilla, and reflect on your self-care routine. What are you doing to take care of yourself, and what more can you do?

  2. Gratitude: Use an uplifting scent, such as our Early Morning Candle to write about what you are grateful for.

  3. Goals: Light an energizing candle, such as a floral and citrus blend like our Fresh Focus candle, and write about your goals for the future. What steps can you take to achieve them?

  4. Emotions: Use a calming candle, such as a soft blend of light musk and dewy fig, to process your emotions. What are you feeling, and how can you cope with your emotions in a healthy way?

  5. Relationships: Use a romantic candle, such as rose (try our Dancing In The Room Candle) or jasmine, to reflect on your relationships. What are you looking for in a relationship, and how can you strengthen your existing relationships?

  6. Personal Growth: Light an inspiring candle, such as a magical blend of eucalyptus, pine, rosemary, and woody base notes, and write about what you want to learn or improve upon. What steps can you take to grow as a person?

  7. Creativity: Use an invigorating candle, such as peppermint or lemon, to unleash your creativity. What new ideas or projects are you excited to work on?

  8. Reflection: Use an introspective candle, such as palo santo (our Inhale Exhale candle) or sage, to reflect on your past experiences. What have you learned, and how can you apply those lessons to your future?

  9. Affirmations: Use a confidence-boosting candle, such as neroli (Our At Ease Candle) or ginger, to write affirmations for yourself. What do you want to believe about yourself, and how can you manifest those beliefs into reality?


In conclusion, incorporating scented candles into your journaling practice can enhance the overall experience and help you relax and focus on your writing. Whether you prefer floral, fruity, or woodsy scents, there's a candle out there that will match your personal preferences.
