Candle Scents for Different Moods

It’s no secret that candles can help set the mood. Whether you are in the mood for unwinding or dancing all night, candles are the perfect way to create the mood you want. That’s because scented candles use the power of aromatherapy to sent powerful signals to your brain and your mind responds in kind with just the mood you are trying to set. Whether you are trying to relax or romance that special someone, luxury scented candles also use the power of lighting and the power of beautiful color to help you set the right pace. What mood do you want to set tonight? Why not consider:

1) Romantic. Set the tone for loving with candles. Candles are perfect for romance because most of us associate candle-lit dinners and low lighting with seduction. Candles are perfect for ushering in romance because they combine visual beauty with soft, flattering light and add a good dose of delicious fragrance. They simply tickle the senses and help you get sensual. According to aromatherapy experts, some of the scents that promote romance include oranges, roses, ylang ylang, and patchouli, to name just a few. The Belle Fleur Orange Blossom Pomegranate Candle sets the mood beautifully with wonderful scents of orange blossom, pomegranate, roses, and cassis.

2) Relaxing. Candles can help you soothe away tensions and stress at the end of a day. According to aromatherapy experts, lavender, jasmine, patchouli, rose, sandalwood, ylang ylang, vanilla, chamomile, and orange soothe away stress and tension and allow you to really relax. Like its name suggests, the Aromatherapy Interventions Chill Out Soy Candle is perfect for unwinding. Notes of ylang ylang and lavender help create a peaceful, stress-free mood.

3) Revitalizing. Sometimes, you need a little extra boost to get going, especially if you work at home or want to get some great energy going for a party. According to aromatherapy experts, jasmine, lemon, patchouli, peppermint, sandalwood, pine, and clove are just a few of the scents that help get rid of fatigue and give you more pep in your step. The Flare Evergreen Candle, for example, combines bright, fresh fragrances to give you a new take on life.
