But candles are not just for gifts. Real estate professionals have long since learned that a home that smells nice sells faster. So, at home showings and open houses, you should expect to see a burning candle or two.
Aromatherapy is a use for scented candles that usually prompts people to buy the candles for themselves. Lavender is excellent for de-stressing, meditating, or soaking in the bathtub. Orange is an invigorating scent that can cheer up a room.
Candles often work for odor neutralizing. Just make sure you get the right candle for the job, or you might get forest pine-scented litter box smell. Some candles come with added odor neutralizing properties and others can do it simply with a strong enough scent and the natural effects of a little bit of smoke.
Finally, scented candles are a great visual addition to a room. With different colors, containers, and sizes, they can be used for almost any dcor. Additionally, when they are lit, the little flame creates a warm ambience in the room. Whether it is for romance or a home sale, scented candles can give that extra something that makes the atmosphere more pleasant and appealing.
