There are many ways to choose a scented candle. Some people choose based on the scents they like and dislike, and this is a very good way to make a selection. Other people go by the names of the candles. A candle with the name Fresh Linen makes you think of a clean space, while a candle named Grandma's Kitchen provides a warm, homey feeling. Still another way to pick a candle, though, is based on your zodiac sign.

Each zodiac sign has its own special characteristics. People that share a sign have similar personality traits, likes and dislikes. When aromatherapy and astrology join forces, these characteristics are taken into consideration. Candles are created that perfectly embody the traits of each zodiac sign. This allows each person to get a candle that is nearly perfectly tailored to him.

When determining which candle is appropriate for you, first determine your astrological sign. This is a simple task, as your sign is determined by your birthday. Once you determine your zodiac sign, view the description of your candle. If you are a Libra, your candle has a calming, friendly scent that is peaceful. If you are a Pisces, your candle creates a dreamy state of mind. Each candle is designed to highlight the best things about each sign and make the user feel at ease. If you do not enjoy the scent of your sign's candle, make sure you have chosen the correct sign.

Using aromatherapy and astrology together is not a new idea. For years, these two sciences have joined forces to heal each of the 12 zodiac signs. When looking for a new candle for your home or office, look at your zodiac sign's candle first. Its scent is likely to be right up your alley.
