Ode to Candles

When you light a candle and sit in front of it, you relax. If you’ve ever visited a spa, you know that some treatments involve candles.  I like candles that give me the impression that I am in a spa when I need to destress. In my opinion, Midnight Jasmine and Serenity are the most soothing meditative fragrances.  

There is nothing better than sitting with your partner while you have a nice, fragrant candle burning. The smell of a candle can help you to get into a romantic mood. If you both like the same perfume, it creates a special, intimate atmosphere. A favorite fragrance helps to calm the mind, and it can create a feeling of intimacy between you and your partner.  Light one, and your partner knows you’re in the mood.

Candles are great to help set the mood, too. You can associate specific scents to a specific emotion and use that scent to evoke that feeling again in the future.  For example, Welcome Home always makes me feel like it’s the holidays and I’ve stepped into warmth and belonging.
