Aromatherapy Candles for Inner Peace and Relaxation!
Aromatherapy candles have become increasingly popular in recent years and in particular, aromatherapy candles for relaxation purposes. Of course at one time, candles were only used as a light source but with today’s manic lifestyles, they can provide a specific and welcoming ambiance at the end of another busy day. Aromatherapy candles have specific essential oils added to them and depending on the oil added; they can be uplifting, sensual or bring harmony and peace into the environment.
Available through the internet or in local retail outlets, aromatherapy candles are now easy to source. For relaxation itself, lavender scented candles can be quite soothing and lavender is also renowned for helping to induce sleep. Purchasing a specially prepared candle as a gift can be a wonderful and much appreciated present but be careful of the scent, as they can be very personal to people. Lavender for example can cause agitation in some.
For safety reasons, candles should not be left to burn unattended either as they are easily knocked over, so careful positioning of the candles is vital as pets and children may unwittingly knock into them.
Making your own candles can be a fantastic creative outlet and it can be immensely satisfying to sit and watch the flickering flames as your own candles burn and feel the sense of relaxation. There are many candle making kits available for those who are interested and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Choose a pure essential oil that you are most drawn to and then sit back and enjoy the aroma. Mixing different oils can give conflicting signals and the hoped for mood may not occur.
Aromatherapy candles can be wonderful to use where there are feelings of animosity, as it can naturally help to warm the mood of those around. For family groups or large groups where there might be some hostility, plan ahead and prevent and eliminate negative tensions by burning some lavender aromatherapy candles.
