Just make sure to get up on time on a Monday Morning, Okay?

 

The bedroom is probably your most favorite part of the house, next to the kitchen where your fridge is placed, I know. It is where you can be your best self, aside from the bathroom where you do a private concert, each and every time. Bedrooms are our haven, it is where we can think solemnly after a long tiring day and take rest.

So aside from its appearance, the beddings, its sheets and pillows, the color of your room and how it was designed, I’m sure that you would also want to smell a great scent whenever you’re in the bedroom.

Scents can absolutely change someone’s moods, according to the greatist.com sniffing a particular scent can trigger specific moods and it’s highly automatic. Published on their site, it is stated there that Scents can trigger moods because of associative learning or the way our brains tie things, it first needs to associate that odor with an event or past experience. Then, the olfactory bulbs, the part of the brain responsible for receiving information about odors, are linked to areas of the brain that deal with emotions and associative learning.

This is also commonly known as Aromatherapy, it is a form of an alternative medicine which practices using of the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. 

The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can alter a person’s mind, mood, cognitive function or whole-body healing.


There are a wide number of essential oils available, each with its own healing properties. Here is a list from the FemaleNetwork.com of the top 5 candle scents that will definitely work for a bedroom setting.

1.WOOD

Does the scent of an earthy forest bring back memories of vacationing in a log cabin up north? Relive those days minus the long drive and the termite infestation by getting a wood-scented candle. Select the right one and you’ll be like Chandler Burr of GQ, who describes a wood candle pick quite well: “Imagine a tree on a California hill with a sweet, spicy (but not overwhelming) sap running through its veins. You're pretty much there.” -- Published on the website Credit-Suisse.com, it is said there that Wood smells: It exudes aromas. And we are not indifferent to these aromas. They affect our well-being, trigger associations, act like a kind of time machine. The smell of freshly chopped wood recalls the fall, the sawmill, kindling for the open fire. But the smell of old wood can also summon up emotions and recollections.

 

2.CHAMOMILE

If you’re feeling nauseated, get yourself a chamomile-infused candle right away. You can light the candle up an hour before you go to bed, and you'll also have the best sleep you've had in a while, reports Yahoo.com. No more waking up in the middle of the night!-- A chamomile essential oil is really beneficial for your health, it is an antispasmodic, antiseptic, antibiotic, antidepressant, antineuralgic, antiphlogistic, carminative, cholagogue, cicatrisant, emenagogue, analgesic, febrifuge, hepatic, sedative, nervine, digestive, tonic, antispasmodic, bactericidal, sudorific, stomachic, anti inflammatory, anti infectious, vermifuge, and vulnerary substance.

 

3.LAVENDER

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, lavender is a bath time favorite because it purifies the body and the mind. However, it is also said to slow down the activity in the sympathetic nervous system, which, in turn, helps you handle stress better. –- Research shows that the scent of lavender eases anxiety and insomnia. John Parkinson, a 17th-century London apothecary, said that “Lavender is especially good for all grieves and pains of the head and brain.”

 

4.ROSE

Natural aromas aside, this particular flower-scented candle also has the uncanny ability to help strengthen memory.

 JASMINE

Another good candle to consider is jasmine. The name Jasmine is derived from the Persian yasmin which means "a gift from God" so named because of the intense fragrance of the blooms. Its light floral scent is a warm and fresh welcome after a long day at work. The fact that it’s basically nature’s valium isn’t such a bad thing, either. -- According to The Telegraph, the smell of jasmine is enough to get a group of mice to cease all activity and huddle quietly in a corner.  Brain scans showed the effect on a chemical called GABA on nerve cells was enhanced by the fragrances and helped soothe, relieve anxiety and promote rest.
