    Candles always help me feel centred

    and at ease when I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. They just create this lovely ambience and bring calm energy into your space! They're also the perfect accompaniment for journaling! 🌸

    Specially in winter giving

    that cozzy feeling while the sun sets down and the night comes with its colder mood.I also burn candles for meditation,as if the flame guided me through my thoughts.When I look at fire I gotta think on life,and how we all are like candles.When the wax melts almost extinguishing...

    I love to burn candlea.

    Love the scented ones, especially the aromatherapy type. Candles are always buring along side incense sticks. The house always smells delightful. Love to sit in the evening in candlelight only.

    I like burning candles,

    but not the overwhelmingly scented ones. For me it's more about a soft, barely noticeable scent, and the flickering flame that makes me love them.

    Candles and incense are

    so relaxing. I love to watch the flicker of the flame. Be bathed in the soft glow of its light. The smell of the incense dancing through the air. My favorite thing was when i use to go outside in the middle of the night and there'd be a nice breeze blowing. I'd bring my candles...

    I've burned candles a lot recently.

    I like to buy them from bath and body works because the smell is stronger.

    I don't like bright artificial light in general,

    but in the evening it's just not ok at all. A soft glow from a lamp is acceptable but that's it. The dimming of the light signals the body it's time to relax and prepare for sleep. Unless I'm reading or drawing, I just prefer my candles. :)

    I like to burn candles

    but I crank it up November-February. I will keep one burning every evening till I go to bed. I have several LED candles and I usually keep one "burning" for a week non-stop, recharge the batteries and keep burning for another week. When my sister-in-law got sick, I kept a LED...

    I find candlelight so much more serene

    and relaxing somehow. Sometimes at night, I love to sit quietly in my armchair and read by the light of a couple of candles on the stand next to me. It gives the room an almost otherworldly feel to it, which really fertilizes my imagination and helps me to become so much more...

    I'm hooked on them. I just buy the most

    expensive and addictive ones, I love the little oils too though, because you only have to use a few drops for a whole lot of water, and it's lovely. I swear my room is like a meditation centre.

    I'm been thinking about making my own.

    Now that would be interesting. The best part will be picking out my own scent for the candle. But for store bought candles, I prefer glade and Febreeze.

    I love burning candles in my home.

    I wrote a previous in-depth story about my candle burning. Take a look because there is no reason to write two stories.

    Couldn't quite hold out

    til September. Had to give in and get my pumpkin spice candles. My warm and cozy cool weather hugs. :) Remembering last fall and marveling over how much happier I am as this one rolls in. The scent links the two chapters. Continuity and change. Life is good. :)

    It's something always done on the Shabbat.

    I love to light the candles for my table. I love to burn the candles, to show the Light of God in my home, the revelations to my people through our great lawgiver Moses.

    It's howling wind with rain

    and stormy weather and I'm relaxed inside, curled up under a blanket reading amongst soft candlelight! Days like this are so lovely spent curled up on the couch..the sleepy haze just washes over you!
