Jasmine candles may be made from essential oil, artificial scents, or extract of the flower itself. Candles made from natural jasmine typically have a lighter scent than those made from chemicals. If you would like to use these candles for aromatherapy, you may want to choose those that are made with other ingredients as well such as lavender, sage, or chamomile. It can be a good idea to know whether the candles are made from soy, paraffin, or wax, because each type burns differently than the others.

When purchasing jasmine candles, the strength of the fragrance can be a key consideration. This can help you decide whether to buy an artificially scented candle rather than one made from jasmine essential oil or dried jasmine blossoms. Ones made from jasmine blossoms may have a light scent, ones with essential oil slightly stronger, and ones made from a fragrance are typically strongest. You may want to take the lid off the candle and then sniff it to get a better idea of how strong the fragrance is as well.

Jasmine candles are often good choices for aromatherapy because this fragrance is thought to help with anxiety and depression among other things. If you would like to manage stress, a candle that also contains lavender or sandalwood might help you do this. For improving your mood, you may want to try one that also contains sage. Burning a candle with jasmine, lavender, and chamomile in your bedroom just before you retire could be helpful if you suffer from insomnia.

Candles are made from a variety of materials, but beeswax, soy, and paraffin are the most common ones. Paraffin typically produces the most soot, but may burn longer and hotter than other varieties do. If you select one of these jasmine candles, it can be helpful to fine ones that have low-soot wicks if possible. You may prefer a soy or beeswax candle if you have a family member who suffers from allergies or asthma, as these do not generally emit a great deal of soot or smoke into the air while they are burning.

If you are unable to find jasmine candles you like, you may want to make them yourself. That way, you can choose the type of wax and fragrance that is right for you. Most of the supplies can be purchased at a craft and hobby store, and these stores may carry brochures that give instructions for making these candles as well.

@ysmina-- I agree with you, candles with an artificial jasmine scent are not the way to go. But candles made with jasmine blossoms are not the way to go either. The latter have such a light scent that it's barely noticeable. In fact, I thought that the candle was mislabeled and that it was an unscented candle when I first started burning it.

The way I see it, one would only buy a jasmine candle for the jasmine scent. Even though natural ingredients are nice, there is no point if the fragrance is not even apparent.

I bought cheap jasmine candles from the store and I regret my decision. It's obvious that the candles contain artificial fragrance because they are so potent and don't really smell like jasmine.

My mom gifted me a set of soy jasmine candles and I love them. I use them in almost every room of my house. They have aromatherapy benefits, especially when used while bathing or in the bedroom. I feel more relaxed and happy when I use them.

The candles are made with jasmine essential oil but they are not very strong. The scent is not at all bothersome, the strength is just right. It's strong enough to perfume my home but it doesn't give me a headache.

This is the first time I'm using soy candles but I'm impressed. There is very little soot and the candles burn for a long time.
