The Best Candles for Every Room in Your Home: A Complete Guide

Planning to buy candles for your home? We're here to help! Whether you want a set of candles in different scents for every room or just a single large one, we've got all the tips you need to get the perfect fit.

Living Room

The living room is a great place to set the mood with candles. The right scent can help you relax and unwind after a long day, or even just make you feel more at home. If you're having friends over, it's nice if your guests feel comfortable--and that means keeping things smelling pleasant!

Here are some of our favorite scents for the living room:

Strong but not overpowering (if your house smells like an ashtray, no one will want to come over) Cali Kush

Woodsy (for those who love nature) OG Kush

Fruity (for those who love fruit) Raspberry Sourz


Candles are a romantic gift, but they're also great for your bedroom. In addition to their obvious use as a mood light, candles can help you sleep better and feel more relaxed. Here's why:

The smell of the candle has been shown to help people fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer by reducing stress levels and boosting relaxation hormones like serotonin and melatonin. Glow Kush

Studies have found that the scent of lavender can reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure and improve sleep quality. Granddaddy Purp

Aromatherapy has been shown to promote relaxation by releasing endorphins into the bloodstream Kush Mints


Scented candles are great for the kitchen, as they can help set the mood. If you're feeling romantic, try a candle that smells like vanilla or lemon If you want to relax and unwind after a long day at work, try one scented with citrus fruits or chamomile flowers. And if your goal is to energize yourself before tackling another project on your never-ending list of chores, consider lighting up some Super Lemon Haze

You don't have to stick with just one scent either--you can layer different scents together for even more variety (and maybe even create something unique). Strawnana Unicorn Poop Wild Berry Pop Tarts

Dining Room

The dining room is a place to gather and enjoy food. You want the room to be clean, but you also want it to have an inviting scent that will make guests feel welcome.

A scented candle will add a pleasant aroma without overpowering the other smells in your home, so use one here if you're looking for something light and fresh. Tyde Podz 

Don't go overboard with strong-smelling candles; if they're too strong, they'll compete with whatever else is being cooked on the stovetop! That said: don't go too cheap either--you want something nice-looking as well as pleasant-scented (and maybe even giftable). The best solution? Buy yourself some new candles from Blaze Its new line of affordable home goods that come in sets of three so everyone can get their own favorite scent without breaking their budget! Bahama Mama   Cinnamon Toast Crunch


The bathroom is a great place to light a candle. The warm, relaxing scent can make you feel like you're in a spa, making it the perfect spot for unwinding after a long day at work. If your bathroom smells unpleasant--say, if you're trying to cover up mildew or mold--a strong-scented candle will do the trick. Just be sure not to leave it unattended!

You should also keep in mind that some rooms are better suited than others when it comes to burning candles: hot tubs are one example of an area where this isn't advisable (unless they're made specifically for use with lit candles).
