1. Start by choosing the right scent for your face pull exercise at home!
It is a general truth that lavender is the top 1 recommended scent by yoga teachers. As a matter of fact, lavenders have the power of instoring tranquility and relaxation, that’s why this flower is often used as scented candle or organic oil for face yoga or meditation in general. For people who rather prefer the fresh smell, we suggest the lemongrass scent that works upon your body as an energizer. A lemongrass scented candle can be the right choice for your morning facial exercises to help you kick off your day in the best way possible! As for women who prefer a temple-like atmosphere, the smell of sage will help you unwind. A burning sage has a healing power and it has been often reckoned with Egyptian, Native American and Greek cultures. If you’re wondering how to go the extra mile with your face yoga practise, then a burning sage scent is the way to go!
2. Detoxify your body!
Electronic devices have taken a huge part of our lives. As much as they facilitate communication, especially in times when real life interaction has become a luxury, these devices represent a threat to our health. When being subjected to the blue light that is diffused by the screens, our bodies are more likely to witness a decrease in the level of magnesium, which leads to anxiety. A warming candlelight helps with restoring your internal balance and guarantees deep sleep. Knowing that the mind can be stimulated by a specific smell, sound or visual, this way, a memory can easily be triggered and revived by a scented candle. Lighting up a candle makes your happiest memories vivid and has a stress-relief effect. It unconsciously shifts your focus from the stress of everyday life to the joyful memories, as a preparation for your face yoga practises.

3. Create a temple-like atmosphere!
Candles have always been indispensable in religious practises. Have you ever wondered why? Well, candles have the talismanic power of narrowing your focus upon one thing to avoid any distraction. As already mentioned above, they help with setting a soothing mood that makes people at ease opening their minds and hearts for a transcendent experience. Especially when it comes to the Buddhist practise, it is sacred to light up a candle, as it guides the dweller towards the Nirvana-like state of existence. If you would like to upgrade your facial exercises at home, let that gentle candlelight guide you towards your inner peace.
4. Set a pattern for your ritual face yoga exercises!
Using candles in particular moments of the day, for example while meditating, doing your face yoga, having a bath, reading a book, doing your prayer or even applying your everyday skin care routine creates particular ‘me-time’ spaces. We know that your lives are filled with hectic and chaotic moments. In order to help you get rid of all this burden, a candlelight can sooth the stress that is overwhelming you.
