How do scented candles affect our mood when burned before bedtime?

We've all been there. It was a hectic non-stop day at the office, and now it's time to rush home and begin our list of daily duties before bedtime. Chores, dinner, kids in bed, exercise, and then it's finally time to wind down before bedtime. Did you know that lighting a single candle in the room you are in can create an ambiance of pure relaxation, even if it is unscented? Add in the wonderful aroma of your favorite scent, and you have yourself a double relaxation bonus! Grab a book and light your favorite candle to read by candlelight. I'm thinking you'll be so relaxed, you'll wake up with your book still in your hands. Our bodies need time to unwind from our busy schedules each night, before getting relaxed enough to fall asleep.
