5 Ways To Use Scented Candles To Enhance Your Space

Candles may seem small and simple, but they’re powerful tools for personalizing your home and altering the look, feel, and scent of a room. When you combine them with other candles or your home’s décor, you can create something that is truly unique to your home and brings you the most pleasure. Here are five ways to use scented candles to enhance your space.

Use Candles as Home Décor

Luxury candles make for excellent centerpieces on coffee tables and come in all different shapes, sizes, and vessels. For instance, terrarium candles are popular because they depict a small landscape scene with flora and fauna, adding color to your décor that may otherwise be absent. Wooden dough bowls are also fantastic luxury candles that are long-lasting and beautiful in their simplistic, rustic nature.

Create an Atmosphere

Another way to use scented candles to enhance your space is to consider how they can alter your space through smell and lighting. Soft lighting will put you at ease, while candles like our farmhouse scented candles will elicit equally calming and rustic scents that remind you of soothing summer nights. There is a wide range of scented candles available, so feel free to try new scents and discover your favorite smells.

Consider Scent Association

Speaking of scents, it is believed that your sense of smell and memory are closely linked. Use this to your advantage when picking out scents. For instance, you may choose a smell that you’re familiar with or one that reminds you of a certain place or person. On the other hand, you may want a scent that is new so that you can learn to associate that scent with your own home. Perhaps you will use a certain scent in your bedroom so that you begin to associate it with sleeping. Over time, you will begin to feel tired when you smell this scent, making it easier to fall asleep at night.

Light Up the Room

One of the simpler ways to enjoy scented candles is to use them as a light source for your space. When you use candles, you are providing yourself with a warm, intimate light that can help you relax and feel comfortable. Meanwhile, you’re also saving electricity.

Accent the Room

Rather than using candles as a centerpiece, you could use them to accent a space. This makes the details of the room pop in contrast. For example, a good way to use candles as an accent is to use them on windowsills or as an adornment on the edge of your dresser.
