  • They can be either. Just make sure that whatever you use is a scent that is pleasing and calming to you so that you can do what you need to do. No good having a stinky candle, that would distract you completely.

  • Doesn't matter. If you make your own they don't have to be scented. But if they are bought it will be hard to find some that aren't. Try dollar stores to find candles because they usually are listed as being scented but don't have much oil in them, so you can't smell them anyways. And they are cheap.

  • They don't have to be, but most believe that the scent will have as much effect as the color, so make sure the scent corresponds with your intent. Taper candles are often unscented.

  • Color is more important. The scent factor is more towards what you want. What I do, I just add my favorite scent. I pick an oil or a perfume or maybe an incense. The main thing is, you do what is most comfortable to you! You do not need to do what is written somewhere, those are someone elses comfort zones. You use those as guides but always find your "zone".

    Blessed Be.

  • I tried to avoid scented but that was my preference. I had to order online to do it though.

  • If scent bothers you, then you can always make your own and give out some during the holidays. I always love it when I get gifts made from the heart.

  • IMHO it is better to find ones that are NOT scented. However, i know and understand how difficult it can be to find any. What matters most is your intent!
