They are a perfect way to add a wonderful scent to your space, and take away unwelcome odors. There are a wide variety of scented candles in a number of fragrance types: everything from fruity to baked goods; from herbal & earthy to airy & clean, from woodsy & masculine to floral & feminine, from food & drink to seasonal & festive.
I am a firm believer in adding scent without the black soot: candles made from palm wax are soot free, non-toxic, burn clean, and last much longer than traditional paraffin which produces black soot and releases toxic chemicals into the air in your home.
Candles are also known for their soothing, healing properties and are often used by therapists. Massage therapists, to create a peaceful ambiance in their therapy rooms. The sheer act of lighting a candle, its lovely flicker and the gentle glow it creates, helps ease and soothe the mind.
Also, our sense of smell is strongly tied with our memories. We often associate a specific scent with a moment or memory. One of the joys of selling candles is when our customers share memories as they smell our fragrances. For instance, Grandma’s Kitchen scent reminds my of my grandma in the kitchen cooking during the holidays. Key Lime Pie reminds me of the time our family went to Florida and ate the amazing Florida Key Lime pies. Also, Lilac reminds me of the Lilac bush my mom had in her back yard and the wonderful smell of it coming into our home.
Much like the way you use multiple ingredients to make your favorite cake, wax melts include many layers of different types of fragrances to build a singular fragrance. A fragrance “note” is a descriptor of the scent that you smell when you melt a wax melt. Every wax melt, candle, and perfume is built using a carefully crafted combination of different fragrance note layers. In addition, if a fragrance does not have a top, middle, and base note, it’s described as linear. Fragrances like vanilla, amber, and musk are considered linear fragrances. They are not seen as complex fragrances.
You can think of the different layers of a fragrance in terms of three main notes. The differences between the notes can be identified by the fragrance progression over time. For instance, the top notes appear first, middle notes appear second, and base notes appear last.
The top notes are often referred to as the “opening” notes. They are the first notes you might smell when you’re melting a wax melt. The top notes can also be referred to as the “head” notes. The top notes are the fragrances that evaporate first, and they are usually the sharpest. Some might even call them a “flash” fragrance. Generally, the top notes are made up of the lightest fragrance oil, which is why they disappear so quickly. Common top notes include grapefruit, lemon, orange, rose, and chamomile. In wax melts and candles, the top notes are the fragrances you smell in the cold throw. Cold throw is what you smell before you start melting the wax melt or candle. For instance, if you were to pick up a candle in a store, cold throw would be what you smell straight from the jar.
The middle notes are known as the liaison between the top and bottom notes of the fragrance. The middle notes emerge right as the top notes are fading and make up the body of the fragrance. These fragrance notes tend to last slightly longer than the top notes but not as long as the bottom notes. You can identify the middle notes by the fact that they appear after the top notes and tend to be more mellow. The middle notes are generally known as the carrier fragrance.
The bottom notes are the most long-lived, and they tend to be the fragrance that creates the memory you remember it by. The bottom notes make up the base of the fragrance. These notes prevent the lighter fragrances from evaporating as quickly. The base notes only appear once all the other ones have evaporated. In most cases, the fragrance you smell most is the base fragrance. Some common base fragrances are ones like cedarwood, sandalwood, vanilla, and patchouli. Our noses tend to pick up on those most because they tend to linger the longest.

What are the 19 hard things you need to do to be successful?
Make the call you’re afraid to make. Get up earlier than you want to get up. Give more than you get in return right away. Care more about others than they care about you. Fight when you are already injured, bloody, and sore. Feel unsure and insecure when playing it safe seems smarter. Lead when no one else is following you yet. Invest in yourself even though no one else is. Look like a fool while you’re looking for answers you don’t have. Grind out the details when it’s easier to shrug them off. Deliver results when making excuses is an option. Search for your own explanations even when you’re told to accept the “facts.” Make mistakes and look like an idiot. Try and fail and try again. Run faster even though you’re out of breath. Be kind to people who have been cruel to you. Meet deadlines that are unreasonable and deliver results that are unparalleled. Be accountable for your actions even when things go wrong. Keep moving towards where you want to be no matter what’s in front of you.
You have to do the hard things. The things that no one else is doing. The things that scare you. The things that make you wonder how much longer you can hold on.
Those are the things that define you. Those are the things that make the difference between living a life of mediocrity or outrageous success.
The hard things are the easiest things to avoid. To excuse away. To pretend like they don’t apply to you.
The simple truth about how ordinary people accomplish outrageous feats of success is that they do the hard things that smarter, wealthier, more qualified people don’t have the courage — or desperation — to do.
Do the hard things. You might be surprised at how amazing you really are.
