Treatka meditation with candle

In previous blogs we have talked about the benefits of meditation. However, we know that concentration, key to meditation, can be difficult to achieve and develop. For this reason, we bring you treata meditation with candle, an efficient and simple way to concentrate, relax and start meditative practice.

What is thetreataka candle meditation?

It is a way of meditating focused on observation. It consists of staring at a point and maintaining attention. Any object can be used, although the most common thing is to observe the flame of a lit candle.

This method has many benefits. It is effective for starting out and, above all, for those who find it difficult to concentrate and relax. It helps to be aware of the “here and now” and to be more patient in everyday life. Strengthens eyes and vision, reduces anxiety and stress, and improves memory, sleep, well-being and quality of life.

How to meditate with a candle?

  • Look for a spacious, dark, airless place.

  • Place the candle and light it.

  • Sit on the floor one meter away from the candle.

  • Stand with your legs crossed and your back straight. You can sit on a cushion and, if you find it difficult, lean against a wall. You can also sit in a chair with your back straight and your bare feet touching the floor.

  • Close your eyes and breathe slowly.

  • Have your eyes half-open, concentrate on the candle flame for 5/20 minutes and then continue with your eyes closed.
    Start with 5 minutes and increase the time a little each session until you reach the 20. The point is to relax without forcing or making yourself uncomfortable.

  • Be grateful for the circumstances that have allowed you to carry out the session.


The best time to do it is before going to bed, after your nighttime facial routine. Aroma greatly influences meditation. Focus on the relaxing smell of Regenerating Night Cream or apply a few drops of Repairing Oil. You can also use a scented candle.

Avoid eating or drinking exciting or caffeinated foods before the session and have a blanket nearby. Comfort and not getting cold is important. Spend a few minutes a day relaxing and calming your mind. It is very beneficial for your physical and mental well-being!
