The Best Candle Scents You Should Have In Your Bathroom

When a lovely, distinct, and well-selected candle burns, a bathroom's ambience can improve dramatically. As a special room in the home, a bathroom is widely known to be both a self-cleaning space and a personal soaking space. To this point, and with the right in-home what-nots, of course, a bathroom can evolve from a so-seeming potty pit-stop to a cozy multi-purpose space in the home, per Pioneer Industries

A bathroom can transform into the personal sauna where one unwinds from a long day and prioritizes self-care. Additionally, the bathroom can become a reading, writing and contemplative space where one dog-ears pages and mentally escapes into relaxation. The bathroom can also be an essential and overall self-care station. Just as kitchen spaces tend to also include personalized touches, pleasant scents, soothing vibes, and prove to be enjoyable in connection with a variety of human senses, so too can the bathroom in a home. Admittedly, certain candle cents can greatly aid the rest and relaxation process in the bathroom.

These candle scents soothe bathroom space

It makes sense that candle selection dynamics may come up for you if you self-identify as a scent lover. These dynamics may also come up for the scent lover in your life. These candle selection dynamics may include which scent of candle to choose, the visual appeal of a chosen candle, and the placement of a chosen candle in a particular place. 

With respect to candle scent choices though, certain smell preferences tend to recur. As Dexter & Mason reported, lavender is a popular choice for the bathroom. This makes sense as lavender is widely known for its soothing properties. As a scent with origins as an essential oil, lavender also complements other scents especially well. The lifestyle publication noted that choosing well with respect to candles also helps to mitigate the impact of unpleasant odors. For others, citrus scents are ideal. 

According to House Fragrance, certain scents can influence people's moods. And as Newsweek reported, mental health professionals have even suggested that burning candles can contribute to overall mental wellbeing. The publication cited scented candles as contributing to reduced anxiety, according to a cognitive behavioral therapist and clinical integrative psychotherapist named Chyrssa Chalkia. "It is scientifically proven that scented candles can play an essential role in the physiological effects of mood, stress, working capacity, and overall mental health," she told the outlet.
