In the restroom, a scented candle is good for more than just the obvious scent to cover smells. A scented candle is the perfect compliment for a relaxing bubble bath. A soothing scent such as lavender can help you unwind after a stressful day at the office. If you are really in the mood to relax, light multiple candles and turn the lights out while you soak away the stress of the day. Watching the candle light flicker while you soak in a tub full of warm water is a perfect way to end the day.

Scented candles can be used in the kitchen to create an inviting atmosphere. Scents that mimic fresh baked foods or spices can add a homey touch to the favorite room in the house. Scents that smell like cake or pies create an inviting mood and are a perfect touch when entertaining friends in the kitchen. Try using one of these yummy scented candles the next time your friends or family are congregating in the kitchen. Just beware because the enticing scents are so live like they whet your appetite and can lead to cravings!

The bedroom is an obvious place to enjoy the benefits of candles. Pick a romantic scent or a soothing scent depending on what you mood you wish to achieve. My personal favorite scent to use in my bedroom is rose. The classic floral scent is crisp, sweet and romantic. Just a couple minutes after lighting the scented candle, the smell masks the scent of my husband’s dirty clothes pile and I am transported to a lovely English garden. These types of candles of course are also great for setting the mood for romance. What is more romantic than being intimate by the light of a candle? The subtle shadows combined with the alluring scent create just the right ambiance for a night time tryst.
