Is there a “best-scented candle”? Well, that is a subjective question. Just as finding the best perfume can be difficult, selecting a favorite scented candle can be challenging too.
You may be drawn to the subtle sleep-inducing qualities of herbal lavender, or perhaps you are crazy about the enchanting scent of rose.
Essential Oil Base
It all begins with a good base and some essential oils. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different bases out there. If you’ve never seen them, they are essentially a solid mass that has been infused with fragrance oil or carrier oil.
Usually, you can smell them before you buy them. There is often a scent added to the base, and the smell stays on the candle even when the candle burns. Others use a combination of essential oil and a carrier oil to create different scents.
Essential oils have been used for centuries in aromatherapy, and these are the most common types used today. They are usually concentrated and are used to make bath salts. These are often combined with carrier oils, which can be derived from coconut, olive, almond, or other nut oils.
These essential oils are also often combined with fragrance oil, which makes up the bulk of the product. As you can imagine, this mixture can vary widely from person to person. It depends upon the individual preferences of the user. Each individual’s skin is unique and will react differently to different aromas.
Choosing a Scent
Finally, it would be best to think about the scent of the scented candles you are looking to purchase. Do not buy scented candles that smell too overpowering. Some scents are best used in minimal amounts so that they don’t become too strong.
Hopefully, this helps you find the perfect solution for finding the best of the best. In general, scented candles are easy to see if you know what to look for and how to choose them.
