How the childhood game of Candy Land inspired our imagination

How the childhood game of Candy Land inspired our imagination.  The childhood game of Candy Land inspired our imagination.  Growing up as a young child, my siblings and I would play Candy Land for hours.  On the colorful Candy Land game board, there are several different lands you pass through as you play.  One of the lands of candy is called Peppermint Forest.  It’s the first stop on a long journey to the ultimate destination, the Candy Castle.

Candy Land is an iconic American board game

Candy Land is an iconic American board game created by Milton Bradley over 50 years ago.  The game was created to keep children happy and occupied in a polio unit. The game revolves around one of the most popular pastimes among children: candy. The aesthetic appeal of the game board aids in the visualization of distinct smells. The decorated game board inspired all the senses but especially your desire for taste and smell.  You want so badly to reach into the game to smell and taste the candy.  The game concept is simple, get your player to travel through the land of candy and be the first player to get to the Candy Castle.

I loved the first land called the Peppermint Forest

As a kid, I loved the first land called the Peppermint Forest.  The concept of making trees out of red and white candy canes appealed to me. I used to fantasize about how that woodland would smell. I imagined the forest to be chilly and pleasant, with a subtle peppermint flavor and a bit of buttercream or vanilla to balance out the menthol.  That was my vision for the Candy Land Peppermint Forest scent.

Peppermint is an excellent aroma for many health reasons

Peppermint is an excellent aroma for many health reasons.  It comes from the peppermint plant and is a hybrid of spearmint and water mint plants.  For centuries, people have used peppermint for a variety of wellness needs including aiding with colds, headaches, and congestion.  Peppermint helps to cleanse the air.  Its uplifting aroma helps to produce an energizing and calming feel that is enjoyable.  If you need to stay alert, peppermint is a good option.  It’s a natural method for staying awake and feeling clear-headed.  This may be why peppermint candles are so popular during the winter months.  As the natural light is reduced during the winter days, we become tired earlier in the afternoons.  Burning a peppermint candle can clear your mind and help you stay focused.

Peppermint also helps to clear the respiratory tract and helps stimulate circulation. With all of the peppermints’ health benefits, it’s no wonder it makes for a wonderful candle.  Versatile in many different locales and enjoyable in many different settings.  Peppermint candles are commonly seen in offices, kitchens, high-end restaurants, and hotels. Business locations like retail stores like to use peppermint candles to add a pleasant experience for their shoppers and to cleanse the air.
