The Joys of Decorating with Scented Candles
Imagine walking into your bedroom and immediately feeling relaxed when you smell the soothing fragrance of lavender or fresh cut roses. Or walking into a room and catching the wonderful aroma of freshly baked sugar cookies. Or taking a long warm bubble bath while inhaling the clean, fresh fragrance of citrus and sage and you relax. All of these experiences can happen just by striking a match and lighting scented candles! Candles are available in a variety of materials, containers, sizes and shapes.
Jar candles can help create moods and can be used in almost any setting. Jar candles are great because they come in a variety of sizes and a plethora of fragrances. They can be featured in decorations throughout your home or they can be placed discreetly so they are experienced but not seen. These days the technology of candle-making has advanced to a level where experiencing the wonderful mood of fresh baked cookies, pies, or other welcome memories is easy to create when you light a candle.
Aromatherapy candles are available in popular fragrances and help to create a mood of peace, relaxation and tranquility. Aromatherapy candles help revitalize the senses while calming your nerves and mind. Light an aromatherapy candle while relaxing in a warm bath and allow your mind to drift off to a peaceful place.
Votives are an extremely versatile and inexpensive way to express a mood or feel. Votives can be used in arrangements or as stand-alone decor. Make a centerpiece or individual decorations for each place at your table for any occasion. Votives make a great addition to any gift basket, too.
Soy candles are excellent options if you are environmentally conscious. They are less expensive than beeswax candles and are made from a renewable resource - soybeans. No petroleum products are used in the production of soy candles, so there's no excess CO2 going into the atmosphere. Soy candles last up to 50% longer and they are more fragrant because soybean oil lowers the melting point. What this means is the soy candle melts farther away from the wick, producing a larger pool of liquid wax. The pool of wax is where the fragrance comes from.
Next time you're looking for something special to give as a gift or to use in your home to create a specific mood, or even for everyday moods remember to include scented candles.
