Aromatherapy Candles - How to Select the Right Scent


Feel sad, tired, or a little bit stressed? Something as simple as an aromatherapy candle could help you relax and feel happier. But not all scented candles have this effect. Let's find out how to select an aromatherapy candle that can lift your mood.

When you burn an aromatherapy candle, it releases small quantities of essential oils. The chemicals penetrate your body and effect your brain in a certain way. Of course an aromatherapy candle can't cure severe depression or anxiety, but it definitely can help you to relax after a busy day at work.

Not all scented candles have a therapeutic effect. For the proper effect, only quality essential oils should be used. Essential oils are derived from plants and herbs. An aromatherapy candle should have display a label that reads "pure essential oils"

Top quality scented aromatherapy candles are made from soy wax or bees wax, not paraffin, which is the material most commonly used in cheap scented candles. It has several disadvantages - being petroleum based it releases harmful soot, which leaves ugly, dark spots on your furniture and is harmful when you inhale it. So it doesn't make much sense to add quality natural essential oils to candles made of paraffin. Look for soy wax aromatherapy candles.

Which scent gives what effect?

For mental alertness and improved memory
Ginger essential oils are known to promote courage, confidence, to clear the head and improve memory. So if you have a load of work or study in front of you, a ginger scented aromatic candle is a good choice. Ginger scent also helpful if you feel purposelessness, confused, or lacking direction.

Relaxation
Lavender is one of the most popular scents used in aromatherapy, and for good reason - lavender will help you to relax, feel peaceful, and feel comfortable. It soothes both body and soul. Another scent for relaxation is tangerine, which not only helps you to let go of your troubles but also energizes you and makes you feel happier.

Fight anxiety
Bergamot, lavender and sandalwood are said to help, if you are having anxiety attacks

To combat stress
If stress is a constant part of your life, try to burn a chamomile, lavender or sandalwood scented candle. They produce a calming effect

For a happy mood
If you are feeling sad for no apparent reason, a bergamot scented candle can lift your mood. Bergamot has many effects - it helps you to calm down, relax and feel happy.

An aromatherapy candle can make you feel happier in many ways. The essential oils not only interact with your body, but seeing a warm and peaceful candle and inhaling a pleasant smell also has a postivie psychological effect. Give yourself a treat.
