“Valentine is coming where is your boyfriend? You are sitting at home, lonely, your mates are getting flowers, you are so lonely”. This is the trending song right now for single ladies.
But for the couples, I have something special for you to spice up tomorrow. Scented Candles to the rescue.
Candles have been used for many years and for different reasons. They are known to hold different meaning and significance. But you see these ones called scented candles, they are the bomb, used to set the tempo up. Some are used for decorative purposes too.
Candles come in different sizes and colors.
Candles and Color
A blue candle
Blue candles are said to heal fevers and headaches. A blue candle is thought to be quite spiritual, useful for meditation and healing and inspiring forgiveness and fidelity.
A rose candle
Rose or blushes pink are the ideal choice for those suffering from anxiety or depression. Candles in this color are uplifting – promoting positive self love, friendship and joy.
A purple candle
Purple candles are said to be great for fighting off colds and a must in the flu-ridden winter season. Like blue candles, they also have a spiritual edge, promoting spiritual awareness, wisdom and tranquility.
An orange candle
Orange shades are also great for depression. You only have to look at bright colors like orange or yellow to get that daily dose of happiness! As expected, orange candles give off joy and energy and are great to light up in the background when studying.
Ignite Emotions With the Sweetest Scents
Since scent is a powerful trigger of emotion, scented candles are a simple way to establish those Valentine’s Day vibes. Patchouli and rosewood fragrances are known for their aphrodisiac effect. Uplifting floral scents can also cause sparks to fly, such as Lavender Lemongrass, Fresh Cut Roses, or Golden Gardenia. Other romantic options include jasmine, honeysuckle, or cherry blossom.
For a masculine aroma, try lighting a stronger yet snuggly scent such as Firewood. No fresh bouquet this year? No problem. Try a scent like Rose Water & Ivy.
Set the Mood With Romantic Lighting
When it comes to creating a romantic ambiance, it’s all in the lighting. The soft flicker of candle light is perfect for a Valentine’s Day dinner date, as it eliminates surrounding distractions and allows you to fully focus on each other.
If you’re planning to enjoy a home-cooked meal, add some extra elegance to your table by mixing candles of different heights and shapes into centerpieces. Scatter red rose petals around the table for an extra dash of drama.
While red and pink candles can help represent love and attraction, white candles will also match well with any table setting. Creative candle vessels are another great way to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit. Try displaying a fun message or showcasing an eye-catching design.
Since there’s no bigger buzzkill than an accidental fire, always make sure you’re following all candle safety measures, Keep burning candles within sight, and make sure all candles are far away from anything flammable.
The candle represents light in the murkiness of life. Illumination; it is the image of heavenly enlightenment. Just imagine the feeling, the glow and the scent. It’s sure to lift up emotions and make one feel special. For this special day, stimulate your hormones (serotonin and dopamine) that help regulate mood. Raise your limbic system, and influence your emotional state. Stir up the relationship that exists between the scents, your memories and your emotions with a scented candle. Make your loved one feel special.
For our single brethrens, please buy your own candles and treat yourself to a special meal. You are single, you didn’t kill anybody. #HappyValentine’s Day in Advance.
