Aromatherapy Candles - Set The Mood

By Sanji Gretta

Aromatherapy candles are in constant use to help set the atmosphere and improve the ambience in many situations. They can be used in any room of your home and provide a wonderful enhancement.

Our sense of smell has been documented to directly affect our emotions. Part of our nervous system that helps to control our emotions is connected to our nose. Thus, the proof that using aromatherapy candles will have an effect on our mindset and our emotions. The key is in choosing the correct scent to match the emotion or sense you wish to evoke.

When it comes to aromatherapy there are many ways to get the most out of the aroma, but one of the most popular ways is through dispersing it into the air with candles. Aromatherapy candles aren't all the same, they can be made in a variety of ways, with different ingredients. You can also burn them in different ways.

Which kinds are better for you? Since paraffin wax candles are said to pollute the air with soot I would advise against it for health reasons. Don't be discouraged, there are many other types of aromatherapy candles available. Candles can be made with beeswax, soybean wax, vegetable oil or even pure essential oil candles are available. All of these are great choices. They are environmentally friendly because they are derived from natural plant sources. Along with these ingredients, they are also available in different styles, sizes, and scents.

The only way to get the scent in the air is by burning the candles, and you have different ways to burn your candles. One of the more popular ways is to use an oil burner, or the tiered bowl with tea lights, although more expensive, they make great diffusers.

Did you know that the way you burn your candle can effect the life and how evenly the candle will burn? Here are a few basic tips to consider before lighting up for your aromatherapy session:

Wick trimming " from top of wax will increase the life of the candle. Another trick to longer life is to refrigerate wrapped candles before use. Last tip but not the least, the first time you burn the candle let it burn for at least an hour before extinguishing. This is what I call conditioning the candle and will help with the way the candle burns. This first burning extends the life of your aromatherapy candle. Take some time to care for them and they will last a very long time.

Hopefully you are well on your way to that moment of relaxation you've been longing for. Light some aromatherapy candles and sit to read a book or take a long hot bath by candlelight. Unwind, loosen up and start taking some time for yourself. Start enjoying your newly found serenity". you deserve it.
