Richly Scented Candles
There are numerous choices in candles. You can find candles of different sizes and shapes to fit your holders, or buy ones that are self contained. Unscented candles come in a variety of colors to match your other home furnishings, or you can choose ones based on their scent. Some candles have subtle scents, while richly scented candles give off a stronger smell.
These tend to be preferred by certain types of people, such as those who find scent to be a powerful memory trigger. A candle that gives off a rich scent of baking apples or vanilla might take them back in time to their grandmother’s kitchen and the pies she baked. They will have pleasant daydreams of being a child again, enjoying spending time with a loved one. Others might use richly scented candles as a meditation aid. Providing yourself with a strong, relaxing smell while turning off other senses can help focus your energy.
Many people find that closing their eyes and focusing on a scent lets them calm their mind and visualize a special place. Lighting a candle with a rich flower smell might take you to a tropical garden, or one that smells strongly of the ocean might bring to mind a beach house. Others might light the same candle just to remember a place; a candle with a tropical flower smell might remind them of their honeymoon, a rain scented candle of a childhood camping trip. Whatever your intention, richly scented candles can help transport you to a calm, relaxing place.
