Aromatherapy Candles to Help You Relax
Aromatherapy is a wonderful, natural way to relax and unwind - and aromatherapy candles are something that can be used as part of an all-round gentle approach to helping you to de-stress and return some much need balance to your health and well being.
Having used a variety of scented candles over the years, I've always found that matching the right one to the mood or feeling of clients as being nothing other than beneficial. They're used in the spa department and it's a regular event that post-spa treatment a client will buy an aromatic candle that they feel has worked for them.
Featured below are five of the best aromatherapy candle products on the market. They're all affordable and the kind that you will find either recommended by professionals in the industry or they're used in professional settings.
Greenfire Lavender Sandalwood Vanilla Blend All Natural Massage Oil Candle
These best selling aromatherapy candles are a big favorite - for many vanilla is one of the nicest, more understated fragrances and they're also a candle that burns for as good length of time. The candle comes in it's own tin, so you don't need to use a candle burner - though of course you should never leave a candle to burn unattended,
These are dual purpose candles . you can use them to add ambiance and fragrance and once their extinguished you can use some of the melted liquid wax as a massage oil. One candle will burn for upwards of ten hours and they're also available in a range of other fragrances. Gorgeous scent, long-lasting and effective.
These are the best selling soy aromatherapy candles - and also make for a wonderful gift. They're a highly popular choice, not least because Beanpod candles are exceptional quality and range across such a wide variety of fragrances that are all equally good.
They're an organic product, even the wicks are free of lead and though they may appear expensive, these are 16 ounce candles that have a good length of burn time. The fragrance itself is apparent just by removing the lid - and for those that want to fully develop the scent, lighting it causes it to evenly distribute with a stronger fragrance around any room that they're placed in. Simply delicious, wonderfully good scented jar candles - and lots to choose from.
Greenfire 3pk All Natural Massage Oil Candles, Lavender Sandalwood Vanilla, Orange Carrot Coconut, Peppermint Eucalyptus Basil blends
These lovely aromatherapy candles are much like the first product - small but perfectly formed. They're a gorgeous blend of essential oils ... sandalwood, vanilla, soy and many more. They can also be used as massage oils and will leave the skin soft, supple and hydrated.
They have a burn time upwards of ten hours and the scent is lovely without being overpowering. For the price you get a pack of three different scented candles, all of which will create a different fragrance and ambiance. When used as a massage oil they're easy to work with and are often more effective that massage lotions. Lovely candles - equally lovely massage oils.
Soy Wax Candle Frankincense and Myrrh
This aromatherapy candle is one of the longest lasting - and one of the richest fragrances. It's infused with myrrh and frankincense - plus soy and the whole combination is a little exotic yet completely devine.
They're in their own tin and are also available in a citrus and sandalwood combination - which is a great combo for clearing the head. They're also a nice gift idea - a couple of matching or contrasting ones will always be welcomed, especially if given to a friend or loved one that enjoys aromatherapy ... and home spa-type treatments.
Aloha Bay Candle Votives Blended With Essential Oils - Rendezvous
This collection of aromatherapy candles are all 20 ounce votive candles and are great for using in a home spa setting. You will require the use of a candle jar or base before using them but once lit - they will envelop the room in a gorgeous natural scent that's stems from essential oils and palm wax.
The candles are made with all-natural products, the wicks are cotton braided and the main ingredient is palm wax - which is completely free of solvents and chemicals. They're a long lasting candle and do burn hotter than most other similar products. They're a value-for-money product - a dozen scented candles for the price and they're also simply attractive to look at.
