  • I do! My current favorite is "Dune Grass" by Yankee Candle. I use the glass jars, and keep them back on the counters so the 2.5 yo doesn't get too curious.

  • I burn Mia Bella candles. They smell better and burn cleaner. They also last longer so you get more for your money.  I am a independent distributor.

  • Most definitely!! I have scented candles, potpourri, and automatic room fresheners throughout! My favorite are the "home baked goodies/cinnamon and spice" scents, but in the bathrooms i like the"clean/linen" scents.

  • I love candles! Yankee candles are good and we have a local candle company that is great! My favorite scents are Fresh Linen or Clean Cotton or any that smell like I've been doing laundry!

  • I love those! My favorite candles are Coffee scent (smells just like coffee grounds) and birthday cake. And surprisingly, they smell great when burned together!

  • I'm not a fan of burning candles. It makes my throat itch.

  • I used to burn a lot of scented candles. I left a candle burning on my stove in my kitchen. I have a Cockatiel in a cage in my den which is at the other end of the room. I went to take a shower and soon came down the stairs and the scent was so nice & strong. I got to the kitchen & looked over to my bird and he was obviously in distress. His mouth was open and wings spread & he was panting. I grabbed him and carried him over to the door & let him breath in fresh air. He got so terribly sick from the scented candle that I threw it away & I won't light any now. If it effected him, It cant be good for humans either. Be careful around children too. Some still have lead wicks and may expel toxins from the wax too. Hate to be a bummer but check on the brand before you use it.
