Scented candles have been around for years and have only increased in popularity as the years have gone by. Over time, people have come to realize that burning candles not only make their home smell good but can also change the feel of the room. Some people light up candles for special occasions or to help set the mood, while others simply like having nice-smelling candles around the house to brighten things up a bit. In order to keep your candle collection at its best, here are some tips on how to have the perfect scented candle collection in your home.
Step 1: Determine Type of Scent
The first step is to determine what kind of scented candle you want. You can find candles that smell like fresh-cut grass, berries, ocean air, summer rain, and a variety of other smells. For a scent that will make your home smell fresh and clean, go with pine or lavender. If you’re looking for a more subtle smell, pick up some vanilla candles. Another popular choice is apple cinnamon. Remember that you don’t have to choose just one type of candle. Consider buying different types so that every room in your house has its own unique fragrance. There are different types of candle fragrances and you should have the right types of scented candles in your house.
Step 2: Identify Color Scheme
Think about your existing furniture and flooring. Color schemes can be tricky, but they have to match your home’s décor. This isn’t a time for statement colors. You should have a mini candle collection in different colors to match the décor of your home. If you have specific color furniture or flooring, use those hues as inspiration for a color scheme that will work with your home’s overall design elements. For example, if you love the bright orange and are using it in pillows and throw blankets around your house, create an orange-themed candle collection rather than a general citrus-themed one because your entire house is already orange. If you don’t have much of an existing color scheme already established (or if your taste varies widely from room to room), take some photos of how each room looks—it’ll help when it comes time to choose candles later on.
Step 3: Select Size
Most scented candles come in 2 different sizes. You can choose from a set of 3-4 small tealights or a larger single pillar candle. If you’re a true candle enthusiast you may want to have both! But keep in mind that if your collection is pretty big, and you put all your candles on one side of your living room table, for example, it may look crowded and awkward.
Step 4: Create Mood With Scents
Every home has a specific mood. The most important thing is that you are happy there, but other people should also feel comfortable in your home, too. There’s no better way to change your mood than by lighting a candle and enjoying its scent. When picking out candles for your home, find ones that have an aromatherapy purpose. For example, make sure you have ones with relaxing scents (like lavender or vanilla) as well as more uplifting scents (such as fruit or floral).
Step 5: Put on Your Favorite Music
No matter what type of mood you’re going for, it’s important to select music that fits your style. Having different songs and artists can help set a relaxing, romantic mood or pump you up and get you excited. Whether it’s easy-listening pop songs, oldies hits, classic rock, or edgy hip hop, play what suits your space best! One great thing about candles is they can be enjoyed during any season! Christmas mini white candles are perfect for holiday parties while the cinnamon scent is ideal for autumn and pumpkin spice at Halloween. Step 4: Enjoy Yourself: While there are many benefits of burning candles such as reducing anxiety or reducing symptoms of depression, one of my favorites is being able to light a candle when I have some alone time.
Step 6: Keep Away From Children or Pets
Keep away from children and pets! While they’re not flammable, scented candles still pose a risk if they’re within reach of little ones or pets. Always keep them on a sturdy surface where they can’t be knocked over easily and place them out of your pet’s reach as well. It may seem obvious, but it’s important to be aware of your surroundings so that you can ensure safety for all. If you have a new puppy, kitten, or another animal that is still getting used to its surroundings, take extra precautions by keeping scented candles safely put away until he becomes more comfortable in his new home. Also, make sure your kids know that these candles are special and should only be touched with supervision by an adult!
