The first thing you want to do is be sure that you have true aromatherapy candles. Scented candles are not aromatherapy candles. Make sure they contain pure essential oils.
There are many different types of aromatherapy candles to help treat a variety of conditions. For instance if you are wanting something that will invigorate you because you are tired from work or dealing with the kids, take a break and light an aromatherapy candle for energy containing oils such as peppermint, spearmint, basil, and eucalyptus. Some other good energy oils are cedar, rosemary, cinnamon, and vanilla.
If you need to relax because you are all revved up from work or you have trouble relaxing to go to sleep you will want to burn a relaxing aromatherapy candle containing oils like lavender, chamomile, geranium and rose.
To help you increase concentration, use aromatherapy candles with lemon, orange, grapefruit, lemongrass, and bergamot oils to help block out distractions and help your creativity.
Aromatherapy candles can do a lot for creating atmosphere as well. If you want to have a quiet romantic evening at home with someone special and you have already gone out of your way to make everything else right, aromatherapy candles can offer that finishing touch. After you have cooked up a fabulous gourmet dinner and have set the table with fine china and crystal topped off with a vase of fresh cut flowers, light an aromatherapy candle that creates sensuality with oils like vanilla, neroli, rose, clary sage, sandalwood.
Always keep in mind that if you are burning multiple candles, only group those of the same type. Don't light relaxing and invigorating candles at the same time, they will compete with each other and the loser will be you.
Remember, aromatherapy candles aren't just for company and special occasions; you can use them everyday to increase your own quality of life. Aromatherapy candles can go a long way to giving you pleasure with very little exertion on your part.
