College life is often portrayed as an exciting journey filled with new experiences, personal growth, and academic achievements. However, the reality is that college can be overwhelming, with its demanding coursework, isolating schedule, and social pressure. As a result, college students routinely struggle with anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges, making it crucial to find effective ways to manage everyday college stress. In this blog post, we explore how College is Hard candles from Gold Canyon can help students find zen amidst the chaos of college life. Crafted entirely by college students, the College is Hard candle collection promotes self-care and brings awareness to mental health struggles in college students.

The Power of Aromatherapy Candles

Aromatherapy is the practice of using scent to improve mood, reduce pain, and promote relaxation. Scented candles, infused with particular scents, can positively affect our mood and well-being. For example, jasmine’s delicate and floral scent has been used for centuries to reduce stress and anxiety. Lighting a jasmine candle during a study session or before bed can help promote calmness and improve sleep quality. Plus, its gentle and subtly sweet aroma adds a touch of luxury to the daily grind.

Making Time for Wellness

Lighting a candle is an easy way to reserve time for self care, mindfulness, and meditation. The soothing and relaxing aromas of College is Hard soy candles are designed to transform a space into a soothing and peaceful environment for introspection and mental clarity. The ritual action of lighting a candle can help students remember to take time for themselves, whether that be through art, yoga, or taking a study break. The College is Hard collection has a candle for every student, from the Sciences Kid to the Undeclared Kid.

College life is undeniably hard. That’s why it’s important for college students to prioritize and talk about mental health. With every purchase of a College is Hard candle, a portion of the proceeds are donated to organizations that destigmatize and help treat mental illness. From aromatherapy to crafting self care routines, College is Hard hopes to help college students find tools and resources to conquer everyday stress and mental health struggles.
