Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.
You would think that candles held a prominent place in aromatherapy. They are a practical yet beautiful light/heat source, and candles can be so wonderfully aromatic. They add a beautiful, ambient touch to a romantic evening, help add an air of relaxation and calmness at bath time and provide a sense of comfort. Candles are used in religious ceremonies, in meditation and in so many other applications where a sense of enlightenment, relaxation or calm is sought.
There's no law or guidelines on the use of the term "aromatherapy" so any manufacturer, even those that include synthetic ingredients in their candles, can slap the word "aromatherapy" onto their label. You may see "Aromatherapy" in local retail stores.. most likely the products are scented with synthetic fragrances, contain chemicals.
Holistic aromatherapy focuses and emphasizes the use of all natural ingredients whenever possible. Most candles are not all natural, even if they are marketed with the word aromatherapy. Burn candles made with synthetic ingredients (or even natural ingredients with toxic compounds), and despite how pleasantly fragrant the air is that you breathe, you will still inhale toxins.
It require a significant amount of essential oil in order for the fragrance of the essential oil to be detectible in the candle. As a result, most candles and other products that are labeled "Aromatherapy" on the market contain synthetic fragrance oils, they may have a small percentage of essential oils. The same holds true for bar soap manufacture, though it's easier to find all-natural bars of soap than it is to find all-natural candles scented with essential oils.
I am offering four Aromatherapy Candles presently. I have found a vendor for essential oils, I will be expanding adding more scents in January. They will meet the all the criteria, that is be true Aromatherapy Candles, 100% Soy Wax, no fragrance oil, they will be paraffin. All of my candles are 100% Soy Wax, are paraffin free and are made with Made With 100% Natural Ingredients.
For a candle to be a true Aromatherapy Candle, it must also be a soy or other natural wax candle, have a cotton wick and no additives or contain any synethetic ingredients.Standard Fragrance oil scented candles do not have the same therapeutic benefits as you do from pure, natural essential oils.
I will be expanding the number of Aromatherapy Scents that I offer.

Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
