To create a truly inspiring home, decorators must be aware of more than just the look and feel of the space. Exploring all the senses in a positive manner engenders a space where guests feel welcome and family members feel at home. Harsh chemical air fresheners may cover up other, more unpleasant aromas, but human beings have a natural aversion to these scents themselves. The use of scented candles, incense and pot pourri makes for a home which always smells delicious in a more natural way. The use of scented candles is also a popular form of aromatherapy, with each particular fragrance provoking different emotions. Lavender is said to promote a good night’s sleep, while vanilla has aphrodisiac qualities. The fresh, vibrant aromas of lime and coconut energise both mind and body, while the heady scent of patchouli is said to relieve anxiety and decrease stress. Dramatic pillar candles create a focal point when arranged around a fireplace, while smaller scented candle jars can be used in virtually any room of the house.
