Mood Boosting With Citrus.
Bright, citrusy scents are associated with the summer months and sunshine for a good reason. Known for its refreshing properties, research shows that citrus may revitalize your mindset too. Studies have found that the smell of citrus helped to eliminate emotional stress and boost participants’ moods for extended lengths of time.
Try lighting a citrusy candle to enjoy the mood-enhancing and energizing power of bergamot, grapefruit, orange or lemon. These fruity scents are also overwhelmingly rated as being “happy” and “stimulating”.
Ease Anxiety With Lemongrass.
If you're feeling on edge, a lemongrass scented candle may help calm your nerves. In a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, people exposed to a lemongrass scent experienced a higher reduction in anxiety and tension compared to those who didn’t inhale the scent. These participants also recovered more quickly from a stress-inducing situation.
Lemongrass has a light, refreshing fragrance that is reminiscent of fresh lemons and limes. This fragrance blends well with other vitalizing fragrances such as chamomile, lavender, rosemary, and eucalyptus.
