Essential Oils – The Key To Aromatherapy Candles

The extra special ingredient in aromatherapy candles is essential oils, which are the unique fragrance or essence of the plant.  Essential oils have been used for centuries for healing purposes, and though the link has been conclusively identified, a few studies have shown positive effects from breathing in these delicious scents. 

Choose Aromatherapy Candles by Scent or Goal

Each essential oil is associated with a specific, unique result.  Some candles are sold based on that goal.  For example, Illuminations sells beautiful aromatherapy candles with scents like peace, which mixes sweet orange, clove and cinnamon for relaxation and, well, peace.  Passion candles offer a delicate combination of ylang ylang and nutmeg to set the mood for romance, while Vitality candles blend peppermint with eucalyptus to energize body and soul.

Enjoying Aromatherapy Candles

There are so many different ways to enjoy aromatherapy wax candles.  Fortunately there’s a huge number of choices, including pillars, jar candles, votives and even travel tins.

Though many offices don’t allow you to burn an open flame, simply having a candle containing essential oils known to combat stress nearby can help you enjoy your workday.  Depending on your situation, you may even be able to heat the candle on a candle warming plate to release additional fragrance and benefits into the air.  It may even calm the cranky person in the next cubicle – you never know!  Don’t forget to pack an aromatherapy travel tin when you’re on a business trip, to help you have a good night’s sleep after a day filled with hurried meetings and power lunches.

When romance is on your mind, sensual aromatherapy jar candles can set the mood both visually and aromatically.
