Scented Candles and Their Benefits

One way to help you achieve your desired goal is to set the mood. If you are stressed out, take a candle light bath using the scents for relaxation. Write a poem, a story or read a book while using concentration fragrances. Have a romantic candle lit dinner to scented Aromatherapy candles made to make you feel sensual.

Fragrances to help you relieve stress include lavender, chamomile, geranium and rose. If you are looking to enhance your concentration, you will want to choose, lemon, lemongrass, orange, grapefruit or bergamot fragrances. Peppermint, spearmint, cinnamon, vanilla and rosemary scented candles will revitalize your body and allow you to gain extra energy. When you want to create a sensual mood and setting, go for vanilla, rose and sandalwood. Make sure to look for "Pure Essential Oils" on labels when shopping for your Aromatherapy candles.

At some point, you may decide you want to combine different scents. While combining candles together is okay to do, you want to make sure that you don't send a mixed message to your body. You don't want to burn a lavender scented candle with a cinnamon scented candle. On one hand, your body will receive the message to relax but on the other hand, your body will receive the signal to gain energy.
