Aromachology is a relatively new term, and pertains to the scent effects that burning candles have on the human psyche. Experts in the fields of both psychology and aromatherapy will agree that true aromatherapy cannot be accomplished through candles, even when natural oils are used to infuse the wax. There is simply not enough direct contact with the elements to the skin and nasal passages to gain the complete benefits of aromatherapy through candles.
Aromachology, however, can be arguably as powerful and relaxing, though medicinal benefits have not been tested regarding the use of scented candles for meditation, bathing, and relaxation methods. The act of finding the scents that most move you toward the mood or state of mind that you wish to be in, coupled with the overwhelming calm and magical wavering of a flame, makes for an extremely soothing and reflective atmosphere from which to rejuvenate and collect.
