PROBLEM – NEED SOME SOUL IN MY HOME
You have the cushions, the throws, the designer coffee table, the oak flooring but something is missing. You can not put your finger on it but nothing is lacking. Add an extra something special with ease.
A SIMPLE WAY TO ADD SOMETHING SPECIAL
Use quality scented candles to complete the look and more importantly, the feel of your home. The soft light from a candle united with great fragrance will instantly add a lift.
HOW DOES THAT WORK?
It's simple really. The visual impact you create will satisfy only one of your senses. Your sense of sight alone will be satisfied. Luxury fabrics, throws and tactile leather sends further positive messages to your brain. That satisfies your sense of touch. Great music or your favorite TV program will tingle your sense of hearing. But something is not complete. Your sense of smell has not been catered for. Scented candles will transform the feel of your environment by transporting you to another place.
WHY USE SCENTED CANDLES?
Your favorite scent combined with the soft light of the flame is simply fantastic. Imagine the setting. Dim lighting, comfortable surroundings, great music and a delicate and intriguing scent in the air. For not much money, you have all the atmosphere you could want and share it with those you love.
SCENTED CANDLES, ARE THEY ALL GREAT?
My advice is to look out for soy wax scented candles. Paraffin is the most common material used fo photographed candles today. The problem is that paraffin emits carcinogens when burned and is usually a derivative of crude oil. Soy wax on the other hand is clean burning and is made from soy beans. Double benefit and a much better candle to boot. Keep an eye out also, for handmade candles. These are generally made by smaller companies that put a lot of care and effort into making their products. Sure beats the large brand companies that machine make their candles at a rate of thousands per hour. Try the handmade candles and you will instantly notice the difference.
WHERE TO USE THEM
Start exploring in your living room. Floral fragrances will relax you while citrus scents will invigorate. Give spice photographed candles a try in your kitchen. They add the luxury of wonderful aromas and will help mask out those pesky cooking smells. Lavender is a great fragrance to use in the bedroom (however, never fall sleep with a lit candle in the room). Lavender is so relaxing that it will help you get a really good nights sleep. Try a Baby Powder Candle in the bathroom. The amazing fragrance will simply blow you away. Dont be restricted to indoor candles, they are great in your garden too. Keeping insects away and freshening the air around you, Citronella candles are just great.
It's easy to see how great depicted candles are and how versatile their use is. Stimulate, invigorate, relax, there is a fragrance that fits the bill. Remember that soy wax and handmade are best when you look around the various brands.
