Complementary Scented Candles Make the Perfect Massage

Scented candles are the perfect accompaniment to a sensual massage between you and your partner, according to msn.com.

Whether setting the mood for relaxation, romance, or both, couples are advised to choose scented massage oil, calming music and champagne for the perfect evening in.

The website recommends choosing between lighting plenty of unscented candles, or just one or two complementary scented candles to achieve a fragrance balance.

Adjusting the room temperature will mean that whoever is receiving the massage will be comfortable and doors should be locked and phones unplugged to avoid any disturbances.

Strewing rose petals across the room can give an extra touch of romance and exotic fruits added to glasses of wine or champagne complete the atmosphere of relaxation and luxury.

For complementary scents in one candle, Yankee Candle Housewarmer Jars are available in combinations such as Greek Fig and Blackcurrant and Peach and Sweet Berries and come in safety-conscious jars.
