Scented candles are the most popular type of candle purchased today. These candles can influence your mood and provide lighting. In home improvement, candles can uplift the look and aesthetics of any room, especially those that are beautifully designed.
Giving Candles as Gifts
This type of candle is loved by everyone. Even people who have sensitivities to perfumes or spray fragrances can enjoy candles with a scent. They are great to have on hand because they can be given as a last-minute gift that anyone can enjoy.
Just like photo frames, personalized mugs and ties, you can never go wrong with giving someone a candle. What’s best is you can even tailor the gift to the person by choosing a fragrance they like.
Another nice idea, and a good idea if you don’t know the person’s favorite scent, is to choose a scent that corresponds to the occasion. Pick spiced apples & cinnamon, gingerbread, or pine tree scents for Christmas gifts.
Chocolate scents or rose scents make nice Valentine’s Day gifts. Especially if the person you’re buying for is watching their weight. Another cute idea is a birthday cake scented candle as a birthday gift.
Scents of Candles Available
Nowadays, you can find almost any scent in a candle form. The most common scents sold in stores are cucumber melon, coffee, apples & cinnamon, white linen, fresh rain, lavender, vanilla, and cookies. However, there are many oddly scented candles available on the market for purchase as well.
Think fresh-cut grass, new car smell, or doughnuts. My suggestion is to try as many as possible. You’d be surprised which ones are most pleasing to you. Some may even bring up a bit of nostalgia. We link scents to a surprising amount of our life experiences.
You can also buy candles in the scent of your favorite perfume. Whether you like fruity, sweet, or clean scents, there is a scent out there for you.
How Candles Can Affect Your Mood
Coming home from work to a nicely scented home can set you at ease. By choosing fragrances that specifically cause peace in the mind, you can allow your mind and body to relax even further. For tranquility, good scents are white tea, green tea, lavender, vanilla, and ocean scents.
Studies have shown that sweet scents put us in the mood for romance. You might consider chocolate, coffee, cookies, or cake. Your loved one will melt away in your arms.
To uplift your mood and energy, there are candles that smell of lemon, cinnamon, and fresh linens.
Different Types of Candle Wax
Some waxes are preferable because they burn slower making your fragrance, as well as your light, last longer. Palm wax candles burn slow and are cheap in cost. These candles are more efficient all around. There are also soy-based candle waxes and candles made of beeswax.
Scented candles are now an intricate part of the household, so you should always keep a few on hand!
