Do you use candles to make you house smell good?

I have an apple pie candle, I light it every morning when I get up to make the place smell good. Air freshners are too strong and make my eyes burn. My candle is just like..... very good and delicious smelling light but noticeable scent.

  • Yes I do. I love my candles because they are the kind that do not give you a headache. They fill my entire house. But I also have air fresheners that are nonhazardous and made especially for people like you who are sensitive to them. :)

  • I love candles, but if you don't like your child breathing in second hand smoke, candles are not good either. I have heard soy candles are so much cleaner. I use oils.

  • No I don't use candles my son is very tall and can reach up onto the counter already but he's only14 months so he doesn't know not to touch them. We use linen scented glade plug in things because they smell good but they aren't really strong.

  • I use candles, and I don't worry about fire, because we use all jar candles . . . no fire hazard there. They smell so good. Yankee candles can make your house smell good even when they're not lit! I love candles!
