The fragrance pervading through the entire room from an aromatic candle is simply soothing. Aromatherapy candles are regular candles infused with natural essences tapped from plants. As awareness about its benefits is rising, more and more people are buying these candles and lighting them in their houses. So what's so special about them? Let's find out.

Aromatherapy is used to enhance a person's mood and improve health conditions. People interested in tapping the benefits of aromatherapy go in for massages, direct inhalation methods, and topical application of essential oils. These days, sales of aromatherapy candles are also surging because of their convenience and versatility. With these candles, one need not specially set aside time to get the massage done to enjoy the benefits but can light these candles on an evening after a stressful day at work.

Benefits
Aromatherapy candles when lit, release a faint yet continuous, stream of vapors of floral and herbal essential oils into the air. When a person inhales the vapors, the oil molecules enter the respiratory system and ultimately reach the bloodstream, thereby preventing and treating certain illnesses in the body.

The oil released has chemical properties that help one to relax, thereby reducing stress. Several people look at these candles as an alternative form of medicine. The fragrances released by these candles can affect a person's psychological and physical state.

Since the candles are available with a variety of different essential oils, with each oil having its own health benefits, the effect achieved from each candle varies.

Here is a list of the various oils used in aromatherapy candles.

Lavender
Essential oils from lavender are believed to help a person cope with fatigue and depression. Moreover, they have a calming effect. Thus, people stressed by work can use these candles for relaxation. They even help treat headaches.

Eucalyptus
This oil is used by people to relieve cold, sinus infections or allergies. Hence it is used as a decongestant. Its fragrance is believed to be energizing.

Chamomile
Essential oils from the chamomile plant help soothe and relax a person. For a good night's sleep, and to reduce restlessness, candles infused with German chamomile oil are used.

Jasmine
Oils extracted from jasmine are used as a relaxant and antidepressant.

Sandalwood
Candles with this oil act as a sedative and aphrodisiac.

You need to understand that aromatherapy candles are not magic candles and do not provide instant healing. But they can surely have a calming effect on the mind and body and help one relax. Soy aromatherapy candles (made from 100% soybeans), can be opted for. Being completely natural, their popularity is on the rise.
