How To Choose The Right Scent For Your Candles?
Have you ever imagined walking into a room and suddenly feel enchanted? That’s how magical scented candles can do to your rooms. However, choosing the right scent for your candles can sometimes be overwhelming, especially, if there is a wide range of beautifully crafted and enchanting candles laid down before your eyes together with a wide range of fragrance to choose from.
There are some ways on how to choose the right scent for your candles. You may base it on the personality of the person to whom you will give it to or your own personality if you are the one who will use it. The health benefits that you want to achieve can also be a factor. Another way is to choose the right scent based on where you will put the candles. Here are some ways on how to choose the right scent for your candles based on the specific location in your house.
You love to entertain guests at home. Or perhaps you just want to impress your boss or your friends who will be coming to your house. So your entrance should have a welcoming atmosphere. How does it feel when your guests upon reaching your doorsteps get that happy and relaxed feeling? Your guests will surely love the fragrance of lavender, cucumber, and sage when candles with either of those scents are placed at the entrance of your homes.
This is the place where you relax after a long tiring day while waiting for dinner. Vanilla, pomegranate, ylang-ylang, sweet orange, amber, almond, and cardamom are recommended for the living room area to achieve a gentle and calming effect.
For the bedroom, where you need a longer time to sleep and not just to have a short relaxation, you need a subtle scent such as amber, lavender, rose, geranium, and jasmine. The most common favorite for bedroom is lavender because of its relaxing and sleep-inducing scent.
This is the place where you cook meals and as such, the scent of your candles shouldn’t interfere with the aroma of the delectable meal that you are cooking. Mint and eucalyptus scents are a “no-no” for kitchens. Instead, use citrus fragrance like orange and sweet orange. You can also use carnation, basil, lime, freesia, lily, coconut, cool aquatic notes, and green leaves.
The dining table is just a few steps away from your kitchen. Therefore, it should complement what’s in the kitchen. Some say that sweet scent is good for after dinner meals such as desserts. However, in order not to spoil the appetite during the meal, use cherry blossom instead.
The bathroom is the appropriate place where you can use your minty scents which you cannot place in the kitchen. Aside from eucalyptus and peppermint, you can use pine and nutmeg for a more refreshing ambiance.
