Are you looking for new and romantic ways to spice up your love life? Why not use scented candles to create a romantic atmosphere?
The craft of aromatherapy has long been put into use to improve moods, help to increase vitality, or encourage peacefulness. The experience of smell has powerful associative capabilities. A minor sniff of a specific fragrance could make us think about home, summers on a pond, or frosty autumn afternoons. Each scent brings with it its own sentiments and images in our imagination, such as lavender or chamomile for sleep and relaxation. This same notion is applicable to your love life.
To create a romantic night, place scented candles around the bedroom in a variety of areas. The plan is to bring about a tender shining light that will soften the look of your physical imperfections while letting your companion know right away that they are in for something exceptional!
Do you need help finding that correct scent? You could choose ordinary vanilla, but why not have a shot at something exclusively designed for generating that old romantic sentiment?
Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie: The old adage is correct. The method to a man’s heart is through his stomach and fragrances that help remind him of these baked things will instantly put him in the romantic frame of mind. These spicy smells are the best way to spruce up your love life!
Jasmine: This woodsy flower scent might appear slightly old fashioned but it is a feminine smell that brings to the surface the loving side of even the most manly guy. And what lady would not appreciate a little old fashioned romance?
Ylang Ylang: This aroma has long been made use of as an aphrodisiac because of its soothing and mood raising qualities. A great option if your man can’t seem to unwind after a tough day at the office. This will have him thinking about anything but the paperwork waiting for him.
Oranges: The essential oils found in oranges were put to use by the people of Egypt as an aphrodisiac and there was no greater temptress than Cleopatra. Known for hundreds of years for its arousal potential, the scent of oranges may be the most powerful of all the romantic scents. Use with caution! (Or wild abandon, the choice is yours.)
Juniper: This one comes from my own experience. Out of all the fragrances and body sprays that I have tried, this one had men stopping me in the street to compliment me on its fragrance (much to the displeasure of their dates!)
Shop for your scented candles meticulously, deciding on your favorite from the tips stated above. Use them to bring some extra romance to your date night and watch the sparks fly!
