Mastering the art of home scents and scented candles

Every home has its scent—sometimes it's good, and sometimes it isn't. Creating the fragrance atmosphere that makes your home smell like, well, home, means considering all the different scents that permeate your space, from your candles and your cooking to your pet and your perfume. Here’s why having great home scents is so important: however, the reason we all fragrance our houses is that the correct aroma may change your mood as well as set the tone and create an atmosphere. This is why generations of people have used fragrance oils and scented candles to stimulate their sense of smell while also improving their overall health. Of course, when choosing home scents, it all boils down to personal preference.

The power of scents


Essential oils for candle making The power of home scents


Since ancient times, essential oils have been utilized as all-natural treatments for insomnia and anxiety. They have qualities that can help calm the body and mind by raising serotonin levels in the brain, which uplifts our mood, and lowering stress chemicals like cortisol. Soy wax or paraffin wax candles infused with essential oils are great because they disperse light and even fragrance into the air.

How do home scents influence our mood?

When your home scent is heavenly, it goes deeper than just having a house you can feel proud of and at peace in. Our moods may be affected by the smells we inhale. For instance, the aroma of a relaxing lavender candle might help you feel calm, or the clean perfume of freshly laundered linen can make you feel more energized.

It has been proven that home scents evoke certain moods. This is a reference to the way our brains associate memories, meaning that when you smell something that brings back memories, your brain triggers that memory and adjusts your mood appropriately. For this reason, if the smell of a vanilla candle brings back memories of baking with your parents or grandparents, it may make you feel joyful.

Scented candles and incense to enhance your home's scents in every room

Incense is one of the oldest types of house fragrances. It's made of various plant materials and is typically burned, which creates a smoky aroma. Incense comes in tons of scents and can help you create a calming atmosphere.

Home scents and colors have a similar effect. Rooms appear larger when light colors and fragrances are used, while darker or stronger colors and odors have the reverse effect. So, use light floral-scented candles like magnolia blossom, jasmine, waterlily, and wild orchids for small rooms and heavier ones, such as myrrh, wood, and sweet spices, for larger areas.

From fresh food to wafting cooking smells, mealtime spaces are already dense with a host of aromas. Keep your dining room free of floral fragrances since they will overpower the meal you serve. Citrusy and herbaceous scents balance out stronger cooking odors and go well with current food-based scents. For the dining room, bergamot, pear, thyme, grapefruit, honey, and rosemary scented candles are ideal for setting an intimate mood and entertaining. Additionally, you may use beeswax candles, which have the ability to cleanse the air, neutralize odors, and provide a subtle honey aroma that doesn't overpower your cuisine.
