do you use them , i do sometimes
Not often. Storebought candles (especially glade) gives my daughter asthma attacks and my lady I buy from online...well, i've just been broke and not able to purchase lately. I love her stuff though and I don't know if it's because it's soy or what but they don't make my baby girl cough.
LOVE candles! I don't care what holiday or occasion it is, you can always gift me a candle! ;) Gardenia or tropical scents are my favorite.
We have candles in each room all the time (we don't light most of them, have them for decor and if the power goes out hahaha except the bedroom candles .. we light those often).
We picked them out by making sure the colors and scents were ones we liked and matched the room they are for.
In the bedroom we have unscented candles that hang on our wall right by the bed and on the dresser a mini decorative unscented black candle in a mirrored & crystal holder all for romantic sexy atmosphere.
In the bathroom we have one Key Lime Pie scented green 3 wick candle.
In the kitchen, sitting on the stove top we have a 3 layer coffee scented candle.. I take the lid off when the oven is hot from baking something because it makes the candle melty and the scent get stronger almost as if it was lit. (we have coffee dates art on the walls /coffee cup with heart in it & an I love you a Latte' ) so it matches those.)
Then finally in the living room, one one end table I have 3 little hazelnut scented candles by our inspirational word rocks.
Then on the other end table we have one brown candle in Baked Goods scent with a cool wood wick that makes "crackling" sounds when it burns.
(whenever we buy scented candles they have to be edible scents we hate floral, spicy, perfumey scents etc)
But even though we don't use the candles every single day... we do also have wax melt warmer in living room and bedroom and I do have scented wax melts in those every day... Usually Scentsy or Pink Zebra in various edible scents that are fitting for that particular season... a few days ago we had blueberry muffin and right now we have key lime pie for spring.
No, DS and DH have allergies and DH tends to be sensitive to scents. Also he's terrified I will burn the house down.
I have been able to get away with putting an Aveda candle on the counter (unlit) to scent the room.
I do use candles frequently. I love them.
Yes and tarts too....
Rarely, but they are beautiful.
