7 ways to use aromatherapy candles more efficiently

Nowadays we often hear the word ¨stress¨. I think there’s no one who doesn’t have any stress. I wonder how people try to reduct their stress.

There’s some ways such as doing what you like while listening to your favorite songs, eating your favorite foods or watching your favorite tv show or dvd…but why not to try to heal yourself from the good scent? Psycologically when one smells a good scent, he/she makes a smile.

Then I want you to try the aromatherapy candles to reduce your stress and relax! Aromatherapy candles have so many types so it’s also fun to choose your favorite one among them.

Last year 13 Dec 2013, the french aromatherapy candle shop called ¨Dyptique¨has opened in Aoyama, Tokyo. It must have a very good scent everywhere in the store. I’d love to go for sure. It’s so nice to make a gift from such store.



 

7 efficient uses of aromatherapy candles

 

1.Choose the scent from a specialty store


First important step is to choose the scent! Lavender is suitable when you want to sleep relaxed to make a good sleep. Lemongrass is good when you wanna get refreshed. Rose has an effect for the period pains and a menopausal disorder. Orange enhance your appetite. Sweet pea heal your tensed mind. Ylang-ylang and musk create a sexy mood.

Nowadays you can get it everywhere such as 100yen store or something like that those shops’ stuffs are made by an artificial essence etc so if you feel unsure, it’s better to go and get from a specialty store so that you gonna meet a nice scent candle.

 

2. 2 ways to enjoy it : Interior decoration or swaying candle light


About this candle, even if you don’t light a fire on it, you can still enjoy as an interior decoration. After you enjoy it, light a fire on it and enjoy the scent before the smell will be gone. But after putting for a while as an interior decoration, it accumulated lots of dust so that you better clean it before the use.

Many people use it as a room fregrance but it makes you relaxed both physically and mentally so it can make you and your guests to have a good times sniffing the good scent. And it’s not only for a relaxation but also it enhances to produce a new idea or organizing skill.

It’s good as an interior decoration, but candle light’s swaying is similar as one’s heart beat.

So light on it and enjoy it’s swaying to relax.

 

3.Tip to light a fire on a candle


When you light a fire on a new candle for the first time, keep the fire until it melts the entire surface. If you extinguish a fire on the way, it remains the unmelted wax. So be careful that only the first melted part can keep melting, not the other parts.

For the first time, it’s better in the night so you don’t need to extinguish immediately, and its doom candle light and a good scent give you a mentally relaxed and balanced time.

If you’re too busy to go to the spa, candle has a same effect as spa if you burn it an hour at home.

 

4.Make a beautiful flame


When the candle light is not uniform, aou can regulate it. Make a string part apprx.0.5cm. Long string makes an unbalanced candle light so you can cut it short with the scissors.

If it’s a beautiful flame, you can use it till the end. To be able to use it anytime you want, it’s important to regulate the flame. Hope it won’t happen, but it’s also useful when there’s a blackout. It’s more stabilized than the normal candles and it might dissolve your anxiety.

 

5.Tip to extinguish the flame


I guess 90% of people just brow it to extinguish a flame. But the best way is to pinch the string part with a pair of tweezers. A pair of tweezers is needed to put a wick but also useful to extinguish a flame.

 

6.Focus on a candle wick too!


Lead was used to make a candle wick but they discovered that it contains the carcinogen so it’s prohibited to use it in America since 2003.

It has a very low possibility that they use the lead to make a candle in Japan, but if you’re worried, the candles from ¨Aroma Architect¨is safe because they use 100% cotton for a wick. You can also ask the clerks about it.

 

7.Take care of the flame after relaxation


Most important thing is to be careful of a fire. It depends when you use it, but the worst time to use it is before you go to bed because you might forget about it. After using it an hour, extinguish the flame and go to bed or go outside.

If you have an anxiety, you can also use in the bathroom, not only in the room. Go in a hot tub and switch off the light then light a fire on an aromatherapy candle. Good scent will diffuse all around you with a warm vapour so your daily bath time will be much more fun and relaxed.

 

I’m sure everyone and a person who never tried can enjoy an aromatherapy candle being careful of these tips. And I feel it can help to reduce your stress from this stressing society. It’s totally recommended to create your own favorite time by choosing an aromatherapy candle and also your favorite scent.

From an aromatherapy candle, it produce 20000pcs/cm of minus ion so it’s same as you’re in the forest. To enhance the effect, the warm colored-light is recommended.

Of course going to the spa or salon is good, but I think an aromatherapy candle is a must item in this recent days for everyone.
