  • lower priced candles that ive tried that have smelled really good is the hazelnut ones at walmart.. i was surprised how good they smelled in comparison to my yankee candle candles where i spent a boat load! I love candles! Michaels has some good candles that in my experience have lasted VERY long.. just gotta be careful about the smell you pick.. a few of mine werent the best, but some ended up smelling really good. they always have them on sale for like 3 dollars for the huge candels in glass jars.. end up being cheaper than walmart.

    For Decor--i love Hobby Lobby.. they have stuff half off all the time! If you have a flower factory or christmas tree shops store, they are super cheap, and also very cute things!!

  • I would suggest getting an oil burner. The cost 5+ dollars and what you do is get various oils or extracts and buy tea candles. You can buy a pack of tea candles for a few bucks 50 or so come in a pack. You light the tea candle, it heats the glass/material where the oil is. Where the oil goes you just put some water and a couple drops of oil and it smells so good, and lasts a lot longer. No spraying a bunch of chems, no worrying about what it will smell like. You pick your own oil.

    For instance, I ue Eucalyptus/Lemongrass extract for my bathroom. Eucaluptus is used to cleanse the air.
    When I am sick I use pure Eucalyptus extract
    And there are a bunch more, sun flower, lavendar, lemon, orange, etc.
