Currently, in the world, we have tons of different scents that are both pleasant to the nose and are highly unpleasant. When it comes to different pleasant smells no other industry dedicates its time more to experimenting and finding new smells like the fragrance and perfume industry. Today I won’t be focusing on the performing industry as much as I will be focusing on the fragrance and its natural method of essential scented oils. When it comes to fragrance for candles there is a dime a dozen and one can safely pick a different fragrance every month and still not go through all of them in a year or even several years.
However, the fragrance candles have one big minus as compared to the essential oil ones and that is that the scent made for the fragrance candles are made in a lab, while the essential oils scented candles are made from plant matter and can be found in nature.
Even though that the fragrance scented candles can imitate and even enhance certain smells to produce a much stronger aroma once lighten, they are definitely not my first-choice due to several reasons.
For one I prefer the natural smell of nature. There is nothing more relaxing than walking into a forest once the trees and plants are blooming. There are thousands of different smells and every one of them has just the right amount of pleasant smell that can be felt even from afar. Th essential oil scented candles transfer that feeling into your living room and they even sometimes upgrade the feeling due to their relaxing properties.
Candles that poses the label of scented fragrance candles usually also carry the label of aromatherapy which is false advertising. When it comes to fragrance oils and scented candles there are not healing properties which you do get when using essential oil candles. On the other hand, the fragrance candles to produce a small that can have relaxing properties due to a change in mood. If you have a highly smoked area the scent of oranges or something else which is similarly strong and pleasant can lift up the mood of the people that are located in that area, therefore making it a product that can positively affect the people that are under its influence. However medically speaking their aromatherapy label does not make them a healing tool and should not be treated as one.
There is, of course, one reason why lots of people reach for the fragrance candles, and that is the factor of the price. Fragrance candles are only a fraction of the price of essential oil candles and they will never come close to that price due to the reason that they do not provide the medical benefits that an essential oil scented candle does.
The difference in these two methods of scented candles is visible and will always have a huge gap in between them. I personally don’t judge and only wish for people to be informed before they make a conscience purchase f a product for their quality of life.
