Here's how to destress:

1 Feminine fragrance: The aroma candles with floral fragrances perceived as feminine fragrances, are perfect for scenting bathrooms and bedrooms. They allow you a calming feel when you are taking a relaxing bath. Go for fragrances such as lily, lilac or even rose. Light aroma candles five minutes before you go to take a bath and you will feel energised post your bathing routine.

2 Citrus notes: The citrus fragrances in aromatherapy are clean, invigorating and fresh. Orange blossom, lemon, lemongrass, lime, grapefruit and bergamot are all citrus fragrances. Such fragrances are gender neutral, and are well suited for the morning routine, freshening a bathroom, scenting the car, office or anywhere else you need a boost of fresh citrus energy throughout the day. Every morning, a spray of citrusy fragrances in the car can guarantee that you enjoy a fresh feel as you drive down to work.

3 Spice up your life: Candles with spicy fragrances warm up a room and the person smelling the aroma with their unique properties. Cinnamon, ginger, myrrh and frankincense are all spicy fragrances. Fragrances from this category tend to be strong, and are good to use during the chilly weather months. You can also make a potpourri of these fragrances as they tend to generate a warm feel during winters.

4 A dash of musk: Candles with earthy fragrances can be used to scent bath products for men and women who like a musky smell. Fragrances that fall into this category include sandalwood, rosewood, musk, cedarwood and patchouli.
