The Power of Scent
I LOVE candles! I have them in EVERY single room in my house, except my son's room, he likes diffusers! Our sense of smell is extremely sensitive and provocative. A certain smell can send you back down memory lane in an instant OR it can make you run for cover! However, the wonderful smell of a burning candle should not be underestimated,it can change your mood quickly. I have scented candles burning for me as I arrive home at the end of a very long day (thanks to my considerate daughter.)The smell welcomes me and quickly ushers me in to have a seat. We all know what a warm bath surrounded by candles will do for our bodies. Try keeping a candle and a candlelighter in your front entry and light it as you arrive and notice how that smell seems to melt your worries away just like the melted wax of your candle.
