Essential Oils and Candle Fragrances

There are many ways that you can scent your home and add a delicious whiff of fragrance to your life, but high-quality candle fragrances and essential oils are among the best two ways to safely add wonderful, rich fragrance to your life. Scented candles have been used for a long time and have recently enjoyed a huge resurgence of popularity. Diffusers are also popular, since they use natural oils and no heat to create a wonderful fragrance.

The popularity of diffusers and scented candles may stem from the fact that more customers are becoming cautious about their indoor air quality. A number of high-profile news media stories have investigated and discovered that indoor air quality in many homes is poor and may contribute to bad health. In many cases, it is not a matter of simply opening a window – the chemicals we bring into our homes may be affecting the air we breathe. At the same time, many of us want indoor fragrance of some type to improve our moods, to help us unwind, and to make our homes smell wonderful. It is possible to have it all. Quality scented candles and diffusers are the answer.

Quality scented candles release a wonderful aroma into your home, work environment, or hotel room – wherever you light your candles. Candles also add a natural beauty and a lovely lighting option to most types of home décor. With their warm light and delicious scents, it’s no wonder that candles have become so popular. Quality candles made by recognized manufacturers are the safe option, as these companies ensure that their candles are wick-free and safe for the home. Some quality manufacturers even scent their candles with essential oils to ensure your complete safety from chemicals.

Diffusers are another option, especially for those who worry about bringing any chemicals into the home. Diffusers consist of a small glass container, long diffuser reeds, and essential oils. You simply pour the oils into the container and dip the diffuser reeds into the oil, occasionally turning the reeds over (or upside down) so that the oil-soaked part of the reed is exposed to the air, which allows the essential oils and their scent to infuse your home.

Diffusers are wonderful because they can be used for aromatherapy very effectively, since they make use of only essential oils. Aromatherapy diffusers are available in a wide range of scents for a wide variety of purposes. Diffusers are also perfect for places where candles are not permitted, due to restrictions or building codes. Diffusers tend to be quite a bit safer than candles since they do not have an open flame which must be tended. They can last for months of use and therefore provide a good value. As well, the glass containers for many diffusers are very attractive and add to home décor.

You can add scent to your home and life safely with quality scented candles and diffusers. To determine which one is right for you, consider your lifestyle and needs. If you want to add light, color, and décor as well as scent, candles might be right for you. If you want less of an impact on indoor air quality and want a scent that does not require much maintenance, diffusers are a good option. Of course, you can use both diffusers and scented candles around your home to add layers of scent safely. You can also opt to use diffusers in the work place and candles at home – the choice is yours.
