UNIQUE AS YOU ARE - AROMATHERAPY CANDLE GIFTS
Candles and aromatherapy go hand in hand as wonderful and thoughtful gifts. Giving the gift of gentle relaxation and soothing light to ease the stressors of a hectic day or stressful situation. Tailoring your aromatherapy gift to the personality of the recipient is an added, personal touch that will be appreciated when they relax to the wonderful scent and soothing light of your aromatherapy candle gift.
Benefits of a Thoughtful Aromatherapy Candle Gift
Aromatherapy is one of the alternative health remedies that work on the premise that our ailments can be cured by stimulating the relevant chemical reactions in the body with the help of smells or aromas from different herbs.
Whether this is true or not is not the point as experts differ on the degree of effectiveness. However, it is undoubtedly true that the large majority of people appreciate a perfumed candle burning quietly in a corner spreading a relaxing fragrance.
Combining the pleasure of the smell, with the possibility of having it actually contribute to your good health is a wonderful combination. This is what aromatherapy is all about. Healing and giving pleasure at the same time.
Making Your Own Aromatherapy Candle Gift
If you plan to give an aromatherapy candle gift to your friends, ensure you choose a fragrance that is not only very pleasant (you could also find out what they like and keep your choice around that fragrance) but also something, that relaxes and soothes. If you are a novice with an aromatherapy candle gift, ask the sales associates at the store to help with your choice.
You may consider making your own aromatherapy candle gift, which will be far more meaningful than a ready made one. Once you make up your mind to make the aromatherapy candle gift you will need a few basic items such as wax, boilers, essential oils, thermometer, wicks, shaping containers (molds) and the like. Make the list before you go to the shop, so you can focus on the quality of the items, instead of remembering what you need.
Do not forget the most important ingredient of all, the essential oils. Make sure before you make your aromatherapy candle gift that you know enough about the likes and dislikes of your friend. Choose your oils according to their taste and the occasion. In case she recently got married, you could use the aphrodisiac essential oils. Or if he is stressed about his job, give him something calming and soothing that can eliminate his fatigue and in turn, stimulate him.
It is very important that you match your aromatherapy candle gift with the personality and needs of the person whom you are planning to gift it to. Otherwise, your efforts could be wasted.
