There is increasing proof that the sense of smell is one of the best windows to affect a person's mood. With specially scented candles in the practice of aromatherapy, a person can be treated to a very relaxed state. Candles are now being impregnated with certain oils. The fragrance fills the room as the candle burns.
There are claims that link odors to our oldest memories. There are also claims that certain fragrances help relax a person. These might be new scientific findings but the use of oils and fragrances for healing purposes date back as far as ancient Egypt and China. We seem to have caught up, though, with the ancients with the growing popularity of scented candles used in aromatherapy.
They are available as gift sets and are usually packed with bath oils to go with them. All you have to do is light your candle and soak yourself in your bath with these oils and get the soothing you have craved for so long in this stress filled age.
They are also decorative and because they come in beautiful holders, they add a touch of beauty to any room. These have a way of making you feel good about the environment. No wonder love birds always light candles to frame their feeling.
Great care is taken in the choice of materials used in the making of these scented candles as it will be undesirable to have the usual candle wax smell interfere with the sweet fragrance of the scent. To avoid this they are made with soy bean wax. Soybean has the added advantages that it burns cleaner and has no black smoke.
There are various blends for various results and occasions. If you just want to relax you can blend the palmarosa, rosewood and cedar wood. But if you want a deep restful sleep, you can choose a blend of Roman Chamomile and Lavender.
These scented candles have found their way into massage rooms as they have been found to aid relaxation. Furthermore, relaxation is achieved from two ends: from the sense of smell, with the scented candles, and the sense of touch with the essential oils being rubbed into the body.
The use of scented candles is on the increase. And with the increase it is become more common place to find it in a health store nearby and online. This raises a warning flag as it has also become prey to faking. You have to make sure you're not buying something else or something less. Make sure you buy from sources you are sure of. There is nothing worse than buying an inferior product that does not live up to your expectations.
