The Inspiring Nature of Dreams
Dream interpretation has a long-standing history, with evidence of dream interpreters dating back as far as 3100 BC in early Mesopotamia. More recently, science has proven that the dreams we have can actually affect our waking moments and shape the way we experience the world.
Casey Herr has been interpreting dreams for more than 13 years. Her expertise in dream interpretation gives her a unique perspective and ability to assign each type of dream with its own specific scent. Each hand-crafted candle is inspired by a type of dream, such as an Inspiration Dream, Lucid Dream, Daydream, or Nightmare. The fact that our candles are inspired by dreams makes our products unlike any other on the market. Each is truly unique and meaningful.
What are dreams?
Are they wanderings of the dreamer's soul? Our mind's way of reworking unresolved emotional tensions? A shift in dimensional planes enabling the dreamer to peer into the future?
Our unconscious harbors a kind of intelligence that attempts to guide and assist the conscious self:)
Scents For Health & Mood
The sense of smell is perhaps one of the most powerful (yet, underrated) of the human senses. A primitive sense, smell has played a vital role in human history from finding and tasting food to identifying toxic substances.
The neurons associated with smell connect the external world directly to the brain with a strong connection to the limbic system (the emotion regulating part of the brain). This is one of the reasons that emotions, feelings, and memories can be triggered by scents and fragrances.
Some say that we are 100 times more likely to remember a smell than anything we hear, see, or taste. Smells can bring back memories that would otherwise be long forgotten. Scientific studies have been done to identify the correlation between various scents and our moods and feelings. Other studies have shown that odors can trigger more intense emotions and memories than can be evoked by an image.
Scents have the incredible ability to bring forward both positive and negative memories and can improve or worsen someone’s mood. Some specific scents have been proven to contribute to stress reduction, boosted self-confidence, enhanced physical and cognitive performance, and a better night’s sleep.
With this in mind, Herr Candle Co. creates scented candles with fragrances that have the ability to influence the atmosphere of a specific room or your moods and emotions in comfort, at your leisure. Fill the room with your favorite scent or use specific fragrances to evoke the feeling or mood you desire.
