Candle Fragrance and Mood Connection

Candle Scents and Moods are linked together.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to improve both your physical and mental health. Knowing a little about aromatherapy can help you get the most out of your favorite votive or jar candles. Candles can be used in a variety of ways to change your mood, such as:

  • A happy, relaxed, and calm state of mind can be achieved by smelling tangerine and vanilla, which are both great scents.
  • I have a big project that needs to be done. Burn a cinnamon candle to help you think more creatively, or choose eucalyptus-scented products to help you stay focused.
  • It's good to look for candles with pine or clove or peppermint or lemon scents if you're tired next time you want to feel more awake.
  • Burning a candle that has violet leaf and lemongrass in it will help you feel calm and peaceful during your yoga class.
  • When you're having a date, choose candles that smell like patchouli, orange, or Ylang-yang to set the mood. Having a hard time facing your crush? You might need some extra courage. Try adding a candle with a clove scent to the mix.
  • People who study the link between candle scents and moods say that chamomile, lavender, sandalwood, or neroli scented candles should be burned before bedtime if you're having trouble getting to sleep. Before you go to sleep, though, you should put out the candle. This is for your own safety!
  • People who are stressed should choose candles that have scents like honeysuckle or rose if they want to feel better. Frankincense, clary sage, chamomile, and sandalwood are also good for people who have mild depression.


Candle scents can also be used to set the tone for a party. Summer barbecues are the best time to have a candle that smells like oranges or lemonade to get your guests in the mood for fun. Burn candles with apple, berry, pine, cinnamon, or sugar cookie scents for a Christmas party to make you think of happy winter memories. This may not be aromatherapy, but it's a simple way to add a unique touch to your event.
