    Candles Are Fun

    I like candles. They mellow out the scene, they look neat, they smell neat. I had a bad experience with candles that my good friend Celery knows about. I had some candles burning on the bathroom counter once a few months back that I'd forgotten about and I came in, overly...

    Not Only On Special Occasions

    I love candlelight and have candle holders in all my rooms. I light the one on my coffee table in my lounge everyday. Even when we sit down to a casual meal at the kitchen table I light a candle. Love the ambiance candle light gives.

    Candles

    I find candle light calming and relaxing. If I can have reduced light before going to sleep, I am able to relax and get to sleep more easily. Good scented candles are also pleasant. Once when I had a back injury and spent several weeks off work, I had a huge strawberry scented...

    Relax... Recharge....

    There is nothing I like more than filling my bathtub to the brim with decadent bubbles and water that is almost too hot. Slipping my favorite CD into the player and pouring myself a glass of wine. Turning out all the lights and filling the bathroom with candles. ... then...

    Candles

    I surround myself with rose and lavender scented candles when Im in the bathtub.  And turn out the lights.  I just enjoy watching the flickering of light on the walls and the sweet scent they create.  Lavender is my all time favorite.

    Unless . . .

    I'm up to my usual tricks of burning one at both ends.Otherwise, I enjoy a scented candle or two in a quiet room when I want to try to relax. I've never been able to sit and think without beginning to dwell on the things that need to be done that aren't getting done by just...

    Yankee Candle

    I like many of the Yankee Candle scents. My favorite as of now is Midnight summer. If you haven't tried it yet, I suggest you give it a shot- it has a really relaxing aroma.

    I don't know why, but I really like burning

    candles. I think that I have a strange connection to my childhood where my mind seems to bring me back to whenever I see or smell burning candles. I'm not sure what that memory is, but I am 97% sure it's real.

    So Peaceful

    I love to burn candles not scented ones though those make me want to gag. Something about a good book in the tub lights off and candles in the tub. I don't put them where I can't see because I am terrified of burning down my house. Sometimes when I am so stressed I just put on...

    I don't think that there is a bad time to burn candles. I love them. I love the glow they produce in the room. I love the soft flicker of the flame against the wall. But my favorite part about candles is the aroma they fill the room with. I change the scent of the candles to...
