Aroma candles - New Year's and romantic aromas
Flavored candles are known from ancient times. They fill the room with various flavors, create an atmosphere of celebration, mystery, coziness or romance.
From what are made
The basis of any candles is paraffin, from which 95% of candles, stearin, soy or beeswax are made. It adds chemical flavors or natural essential oils. Naturally, the most safe are scented candles made from natural materials. Bee wax itself has a pleasant smell, and with the addition of delicate aromas of rose, vanilla, apricot, lavender, ylang-ylang creates a sensual atmosphere.
Chemical flavors, moreover, that they often smell not what is indicated on the package, are also harmful to health. Paraffin, when heated, also releases harmful substances.
Stearin candles consist of natural materials, but today they are extremely rare.
Now many gel candles are sold, including flavored ones. Gel, as, indeed, the candles themselves, you can do with your own hands. To make it, you need glycerol, gelatin, tannin and distilled water. Food colors and natural essential oils will complement the composition of homemade products.

But all the same candles remained an indispensable attribute of New Year's adornments. They create a festive mood, and aroma-candles also fill the house with the smell of needles.
In recent years, instead of living odorous spruce or pine, artificial trees are being installed, which may even be more beautiful, but, alas, they do not have a coniferous forest smell, a smell coming from childhood. And even mandarins, real, torn from the tree, but brought from afar, may not have that rich flavor that, combined with the smell of the tree, creates a foretaste of the holiday, a sense of wonder.
