We think the idea of creating a mood is one that gets overlooked. When you think about it, however, it makes a lot of sense. When you put on your exercise clothes, you feel more like exercising. When you dress up for work, you feel confident and ready to take on the day. But for some reason we’re supposed to just be in the mood for romance without any effort?
Well, here at In the Garden of Eden we know that setting the mood is a big part of getting into the mood! We also know that it’s not really that hard to do. For starters, why not turn off the lights and set out some candles? This is one of the easiest ways to create an atmosphere that’s right for love.
The flickering light of candles instantly set a romantic mood. Candlelight is soft and more flattering than your bedroom light. Let’s face it–it’s far easier to be confident when you’re not under harsh lighting. You can light as many or as few as you want, allowing you to customize the lighting to match your mood.
Candles also come in many mood-enhancing scents. For instance, jasmine has an old-fashioned romantic scent that many people find alluring. Ylang Ylang is an exotic scent that is considered to have aphrodisiac properties.
Ultimately though, the scents that work for you are unique. It may even take a few tries before you settle on your favorite. Nothing wrong with that!
