Relaxation and taking time to unwind is an essential component of modern life. The stresses and strain of simply managing a variety of different tasks and balancing out all the daily interactions with the world need to be recognised, and, whenever possible, soothed and calmed.
The importance of the sense of smell in helping with relaxation and calming activities is sometimes downplayed, with other sensual preoccupations taking centre stage. But undervaluing aroma and scent in the pursuit of calm would be a mistake; it is at the heart of a deeper sense of memories of tranquillity that are essential in regaining composure and peace.
Having products available the defined by their ability to produce pleasing aromas and scents available in the home is a wonderful idea for anyone looking for some relaxing calm.
Here at Dotmaison we love how a variety of candles and incense sticks dotted around the home can bring about a valuable feeling of serenity and peace. The following products reveal beautiful scents that are ideal for exploring the true quality of fragrance and aroma.
The beautiful set of Mini Candles from Elizabeth Scarlett form a fantastic gift collection. Perfect for anyone looking for a little bit of peaceful calm at home, the natural soy wax candles produce a pleasant aroma when lit. Containing the scents of Lavandou Lavender, Rustic Herb and Jasmine and Wild Flower, the candles are able to burn for up to 10 hours. These smaller candles are suitable for any room in the home and are sure to offer a pretty scent and illumination around the place.
Another way to fill a room with delightful fragrance is with reed diffusers working with essential oils. Millefiori is an Italian brand well known for producing an abundance of ways to bring about scent and aroma in the home.
The above Millefiori Natural Fragrance Reed Diffusers, Magnolia Blossom and Wood is available in two different sizes, and is sure to bring a calming floral scent to any interior. Looking great on windowsills, table tops and shelves, the diffusers let out scents of magnolia, violet, rose, amber and sandalwood. To release the aroma, the sticks are inserted into the glass bottle holding the essential oils. The wonder aroma will then gradually diffuse and work its way around an interior.
Another set of reed diffusers is offered by the Orla Kiely Lavender Reed Diffuser 200ml. Creatively inspired by the natural world, the pure essential oils of lemon, mint and lavender combine to produce a fascinating and relaxing scent. Simple to use and enjoy, the diffuser oil and reeds will be sure to transform the aroma of any interior space. The lavender essence is also available in the form of a scented candle, offering another way to relax in the beautifully fine aroma.
