Aromatherapy candles are renowned for providing spiritual, psychological and physiological well-being. You may already be aware that they contain natural ingredients but how are they made exactly? And how do you know if you’re buying a genuine and high-quality aromatherapy candle that is potent enough to be smelled around the room and will provide you with the desired therapeutic benefits?
How An Aromatherapy Candle Is Made
According to Aromaweb, aromatherapy candles contain 100% natural ingredients and are fragranced with volatile aromatherapy oils (loosely referred to as “essential oils”) including essential oils, absolutes, CO2s. These aromatic oils are the results of the extracts from the different methods of fragrance extraction such as distillation, cold-press & enfleurage (essential oils), solvent extraction (absolutes), and CO2 extraction (CO2s). Enfleurage is one of the oldest methods of essential oil extraction but is rarely used today.
Common Essential Oils In Aromatherapy Candles
The Essential Oils Directory lists around 130 essential oils used in aromatherapy today. Each has a unique chemistry and properties that provide distinct therapeutic, psychological and physiological effects. All-natural candles can help with relaxation, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and concentration. When aromatherapy candles are scented with one single essential oil or with essential oils in a blend, synergy occurs. Either within the single oil (Lavender on its own can relax and help you sleep) or to produce a blend that is more effective than when using a single oil (to help you relax, reduce anxiety and help you sleep).
