Scented candle guide

With a scented candle provide a relaxing or stimulating atmosphere

It’s not just the English that say ‚My home is my castle‘, and it seems that retreating into one’s own four walls is more important than ever for many people today. They design their own four walls with much love and effort, they renovate and decorate. And the home should not only look good, it should also smell good. Although there is a large selection of room sprays in stores that promise good fragrance at the touch of a button. But much more pleasant are scented candles. First of all, the burning candles enchant us with their romantic light and, by the way, they exude the fragrance that seems just pleasing to us.

How important smells are for our well-being and for our mood can be observed particularly vividly during the Christmas season. Who does not feel moved into the excitement of the days of childhood, when it smells seductively in the kitchen when baking sweet treats and the branches on the Christmas wreath prepare for the most beautiful and contemplative time of the year?

It depends on the right measure

But as with almost all things, the use of scented candles also depends on the right amount. After a short time, a habituation process begins. The strong scent is simply ‚faded out‘ and we can no longer perceive it. To increase the intensity of the fragrance even further until we can perceive it again would be counterproductive, because our sense of smell also gets used to it very quickly. In addition, the frequent inhalation of strong fragrances in sensitive people can also cause discomfort or even trigger allergies. The Berlin Environmental Agency points out that fragrances can also be used as a trigger of contact allergies because they are absorbed not only via the olfactory cells but also via the skin. It is better to ignite the scented candles very purposefully and quite sparingly in contemplative moments. The pleasant scent lingers in the room for several hours and also awakens in this way pleasant memories and sensations.

Which effect has which fragrance?

That the scent is a very individual matter, is quickly clear when it comes to the favorite fragrance. What one person feels to be extremely pleasant may seem repugnant to another. But there are also flavors that find a general consensus and are appreciated by the whole family. These include, for example, vanilla flavors that help us feel at home even more at home. In fact, scientists have been able to prove that physical reactions can be caused by fragrances. Chinese scientists have been able to detect effects on the blood vessels and the human cardiovascular system. They observed that subjects‘ blood pressure began to drop after inhaling certain aromas. This effect lasted for about an hour.

Everyone has certainly experienced that certain odors are stimulating and refreshing. This is especially true for the scents of citrus fruits. The fragrances of Lemons, Oranges & Co are also said to lift our spirits and counter depressive moods. Other natural fragrances such as lavender or jasmine have a calming effect and help us reduce stress.

These scented candles are especially popular

Scented candles are particularly popular in the US and therefore it is understandable that many high-quality scented candles are produced in the United States. One of the most popular products in this area is, for example, the scented candle ‚Vanilla Cupcake‘ by Yankee Candle. These candles are made from high quality ingredients. The fragrance content is 7%. And also purely optical is this scented candle , which burns in the attractive Apothecary glass, a real gem.
