It’s not a secret that aromas can improve our emotional and physical health. That explains why so many people turn to aromatherapy and why so many of us thrive to make our homes welcoming and infuse them with fragrances. Every essential oil is composed of unique components, each of which has a special impact on the body and mind.
Candles are the most popular home fragrance products that not only add a special atmosphere to your home but also promote relaxation.
Best Aromas for Relaxation
Scientists have found that aromatherapy not only promotes relaxation but also improves sleep quality, decreases stress and anxiety, and alleviates depression. For relaxation, it’s recommended to use flower fragrances such as lavender, chamomile, geranium, and jasmine, as well as citrusy and herbaceous scents such as bergamot, eucalyptus, and pine.
