There is nothing nicer than receiving a candle gift that you can display around your home. Available in endless designs and with the most amazing fragrances, there is always a candle to suit the recipient, making the gift more personal.

Scented candles can stimulate the part of the brain that is connected to mood and memory. This is why fragranced candles are often used for the way they make you feel, as well as looking and smelling great. We have taken a little look at how some of these scents can help your overall well-being.

How does a scented candle work?

A good scented candle will help to improve your mood, as well as making your home smell wonderful and homely. There are candle scents for relaxing, candle scents to help you focus and so many more. As the wax heats up on top of the candle, the scent additive evaporates into the air.

Once you have finished using your candle for the day, let it cool and try to keep it covered in order to prevent the scent from drying out. It will also stop the candle from smelling of dust next time you light it.
