1. Light a Candle
We often associate candles with romance but have you ever wondered why? Candles benefit the senses in more than just one way. The smell of essential oils is key in aromatherapy whilst the low light of the candle helps to relax the body, lift your mood and cause a rather romantic reaction. Light a candle in your room the morning of your wedding whilst you get ready and not only will it help relax you for the day ahead but it can also be taken home after the event to light again and again with your new husband and would be great for special occasions like anniversaries.
2. Give your Room a Spritz
If you want the instant benefit of the aroma, carry a bottle of room spray with you to spritz throughout the day. Whether you are in your room getting ready, during the ceremony or at the reception, as soon as your spray the scent back at home after the occasion, you will instantly be transported back to all the lovely memories you made in those spots.
3. Use a Diffuser
Consider using a diffuser to disperse the fragrance you decide on at your reception. You could even send your guests home with a small bottle of the scent which they could use at home as a reminder of your fabulous day!
