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.
