Winter is a time of year that many find to be particularly stressful. It’s a season that’s filled with big holidays, parties, and social gatherings that can leave you feeling frazzled and exhausted. Now is the time to set up your personal time for relaxation and rejuvenation. The last thing you need is an overworked mind and body. To help you feel less frazzled, we’ve put together a list of aromatherapy scents that will help you relax and give you a little well-deserved zen.
1. Clean Up Candle Wax
When you’re finished with your candle, the wax can be a bit of a pain to clean up if you’re not careful. The best way to get rid of the wax is to place a brown paper bag over the wax and then use a hot iron. The heat will cause the wax to melt and absorb into the paper bag. If there are still some chunks of wax remaining, you can use a butter knife to help break it up before placing it in the bag.
2. Right Scent for Your Mood
If you’re looking to relax, there are certain scents that are better than others. Lavender is known for its ability to promote calm and relaxation, making it a popular choice for aromatherapy. Other scents that can help you wind down include chamomile, sandalwood, vanilla and ylang ylang. If you’re looking for a scent that will perk you up, citrusy scents like lemon and grapefruit are a good option. Peppermint is also a good choice for when you need a energy boost. Experiment with different scents until you find one that helps you achieve the desired effect.
3. Aromatherapy Scents To Help You Relax
Essential oils have been used for aromatherapy for centuries. They’re famous for their ability to promote relaxation and relieve stress. Different oils have different effects, so it’s important to choose the right scent for you. If you’re looking to wind down after a long day, try using scents like lavender, chamomile, or citrus. These scents are known for their calming properties. Our Soy Candles are perfect for using in aromatherapy. They’re made from natural, eco-friendly soy wax and are scented with essential oils.
