Benefits of scented candles

Scented candles improve the mood, and the pleasant aroma and pleasant flickering of the candle create a pleasant atmosphere. Choose your favorite scent, from fresh fruit scents to spring floral scents. Some candles are made in candle jars, which can then be used as holders for floating candles. There are two important factors to consider when choosing a scented candle: where do you want to place it and what kind of atmosphere do you want to create?

For example, choose calming ingredients for your bedroom that will help you relax and sleep better. Or you can put a light citrus or mint candle in your bath to make it easier for you to get up in the morning. You can also focus on the seasons: in winter you usually want spicy scents, while in spring you want floral and refreshing scents.

Criteria for choosing a scented candle

The first violin in the aromatic composition is played by candle fragrance oils, which are released when the wax melts and fills the atmosphere with pleasant smells.

Aroma candles are created by professionals, whose task is not only to combine several smells into a single bouquet but also to make sure that when the wick burns, the aromas open up like a flower bud, without the effect of a cloying, suffocating bomb. A good aroma is always unobtrusive, and after the wick is extinguished, the cloud of smell gradually evaporates, leaving barely perceptible notes in the room.

Among the whole variety of aroma candles, everyone can choose an option to their taste. Conventionally, aroma compositions are divided into several categories:

Scents for the cold season. In winter, you want warmth, a cozy blanket, a burning fireplace and a mug of hot tea or mulled wine. Therefore, it is recommended to use candles with the smell of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, orange, ginger, sandalwood, with vanilla and chocolate notes. On the eve of the Christmas holidays, to create a New Year's atmosphere, buy candles with the scent of pine needles and tangerine.

Scents for hot weather. In summer, people long for coolness, which is given to them by candles with the smell of mint, coconut, violet, menthol, and amber, as well as aquatic combinations with the scent of a sea breeze. The desire for coolness is also expressed in the colors of aroma candles. If in winter it is burgundy, chocolate, terracotta, or deep amber, then summer options are usually white, light mint, or bluish.

Today in perfumery there is no longer a division into specifically masculine and clearly feminine fragrances. The world is open to experimentation, and perfumers are increasingly releasing unisex fragrances. This trend is reflected in the production of scented candles. You will find products with the most unexpected combinations, for example, cedar and jasmine or leather, tobacco, and chocolate.

Take into account a few unspoken rules when using scented candles in the interior. For the bedroom, only soothing and relaxing combinations in which lavender, mint, jasmine, juniper, and rosemary are present. Ylang-ylang, cardamom, and rose will add a romantic mood.

Citrus and coniferous smells, as well as notes of lavender, are preferable in the bathroom.

Invigorating compositions with orange, neroli, lemon, and mimosa are better to use for parties, and aroma candles with notes of vanilla and spices work perfectly in the kitchen.
