I Love Candles

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,769 People

    Candles are beautiful in their own way,

    i prefer the Apple and Cinnamon scented ones because that smell alone calms me and makes me feel at peace, i love watching the flames do their hypnotic dance as the wax melts slowly and slides along the side of the candle.

    Many Uses

    Candle lamps...I have a ton of them. Most of them stay in my closet for when I need them such as a power outage (like Hurricane Sandy for example). The one I have out on my altar is a small blomus candle lamp that looks like something you would see on your table at a fancy...

    Burning Candles In Winter

    I love burning candles. I do it almost every day in the winter because it's dark and dreary out. I don't see the point of burning candles in the summer when it is light out until later in the evening. But I love the smell of almost every fruit scented candle although I don't like...

    I've always loved candles.

    I like the flicker of the flame and the scent of them as they burn. But lately I've taken up making my own candles. This is nice because it allows me to make the scent as strong or weak as I desire. And it's fun. I enjoy making candles.

    We use to make Beeswax Candles,

    when I was a child. It is my favourite kind of candle till now. Have a great old lady beekeeper nearby and buy from her once a while honey, candles and delicious honey bonbons :-)

    Everyday when I get a shower I light about five

    candles and then turn the lights off! I just think it makes my shower so much more relaxing and comforting!... No shame in my game :)

    The Sacred Flame

    Blessed are you who transform and illuminate. Keeper of the light upon my path, you wonderous creature. Ruler of the South and of spirited ways, Your warmth reaches out to me and touches my soul. Oh sacred flame of Hecate's torches, show me the way through the night.

    Favorite Scents...

    Is there nothing more romantic than a room lit full of candles... or a candle on the table... beside a prepared meal... The light flickering in your lovers eyes as they slide ontop of you at night to steal a kiss or two. I love candles. They are soothing, the light, the scent...

    Candles are so romantic!

    I have candles in my fireplace that I will light in the spring & summer. Candles on the mantle, on the island in the kitchen. Bubble bath candles around the tub

    I do enjoy the soft scent of a fragrant candle

    with a pretty flickering flame. Adds a little something extra to a nice relaxing atmosphere. Brilliantly :)

    Memories

    I love candles....scented or non-scented...I love them all. A few nights ago, I lit a large candle and placed it in the fireplace. The air coming down from the chimney was making the flame flicker to and fro. It was hypnotic to watch the candle flame dancing in the dark. The...

    So Much Fun

    I just like them. I don't know. Maybe I'm making up for lost experiences or something, since my mom didn't let me use lighters or matches as a child, and most certainly wouldn't let me burn candles in my room. I did have candles, though. Scented ones that I'd just like set out...

    My favorite is Yankee Candles,

    they're expensive but I get them at Marshall's or Home Goods and it's like half the price. I love the clean scents like cotton or linen. In the summer I like the ones about the beach like ocean, there's a lot of good ones. And don't get me started on my favorite for the holidays...

    Candlelight has such a lovely warmth!

    We have a small home so we utilize shelving quite a bit. On nearly every shelf you will see a candle! Pity they are more expensive than they used to be, but the new aromas are nice too.

    The World Lit Only By Fire

    I love candle light. It takes me back to a time when all there was to see and protect us in the dark was fire. One of the Ancient Rules of the Knights Templar was that in their sleeping chamber there was to be a light throw out the night. I keep this rule but I use battery...

    Part of it is romantic.

    .. another part of it is a touch of pyromania. I enjoy having scented candles around and using candles for decoration. I haven't tried using candles... or melted candle wax to be more specific... in an intimate way but I'm open to trying anything once.

    The Best Candle Scent, Ever!

    I am a grown woman. I have a college degree. I know candles are made of wax. I have known candles are made of wax for at least thirty years. So what would possess me to dip my finger into melted candle wax, taste it, and expect it to taste like anything other than candle wax...
