Highly scented candles are not for everyone.
Before you give a highly scented candle as a gift, you should first inquire about how this person feels about candles that are heavily scented. Depending on the scent you use, it may not matter whether or not the candle is highly scented. This is because some scents, such as vanilla and lavender, are mild and it doesn’t matter how much of the oil is used to make a highly scented candle. Other stronger scents may be harder to take in high doses, which is why you do need to be careful about giving a highly scented candle to someone that is sensitive to scents.
Some of the scents used in making a highly scented candle do not smell like flowers or earthy aromas. Try a heavily scented candle with the aroma of angel food cake. This particular scent has undertones of cherry to produce a great aroma in your kitchen. Since the scent of home baked goodies rarely bothers anyone, this is one type of heavily scented candle that you can use freely. Get a hint of Grandma’s kitchen with candles scented with hot baked apple pie. This is one of the scents that will surely take you back to the days of your childhood.
Heavily scented candles in aromatherapy candles are perfect for the healing properties that they bring to the mind, body and spirit. Whether you are seeking relief from stress, a headache or you want to create the perfect romantic atmosphere, a highly scented candle with one of the essential oils is the way to achieve your objective. Whether the heavily scented candle is made from paraffin or soy wax, you know that you will get the scent you want.
Just walking through the aisle of the store with a variety of highly scented candles will give you an idea of the various scents that these candles give off. If you have to pick up the candle to tell whether or not it is scented, then you should realize that it is not really heavily scented. The proper heavily scented candle will allow you to get the scent from even standing a distance away from it.
When choosing the scents to make a highly scented candle, you cannot go by the fill level on the bottle. This is because the different scents have different weights. For example, mulberry is very light, whereas a caramel essential oil is really heavy. When working with essential oils to make highly scented candles, you have to make sure the area is well ventilated. Some of the oils will irritate your skin if you happen to come in contact with the full strength oil. Wash your skin immediately with soap and water and that should so the trick.
