Candles Can be Enjoyed Everyday

This article is about how to use candles while you are working at home online. Try using candles if you never have.

Not until recently have I discover that candles create a peaceful atmosphere while working at home . If you are like me, I do not write well with singing and television noise in the background. I need to focus on words and thoughts in my head. Candles can do just the trick.

The lighting, scent and color of the candles are what make it so inviting. You may be an individual that lights candles all the time and you know the value. Let me introduce you to more beautiful and aromatic candles that you can place all over your home and work environment.

I especially like the jar candles because they are easy to maintain. All the wax stays in the jar and does not ruin any of your fine furniture. The large ones last a long time.

Not only do candles smell nice, they are nice to look at. What is it about a lighted candle? I tend to believe that the light gives off a glow that creates a calming sweet atmosphere. There is probably some psychology behind the glowing lighted candle.

How Often Do You Light Your Candles

Story Behind The Cinnamon Jar Candle

Several years ago a friend gave me this candle. I occasionally lit it in the kitchen. I would not have bought this candle for myself. But every since I discovered the beauty of it, I have been lighting it frequently. Hint, hint, candles make good gifts.

If Candles Could Talk - This is What They Would Say

I have come to give you light and scent your atmosphere so that it smells pleasant and inviting. I ask that you place me where it is safe, and where children can not reach me. My wax is hot, it drips and is capable of burning you or your child.

When guest come to your home, please light me before they come. I hate when you wait until the last minute to light me only to discover that you have no matches, nor can you find a lighter. I know how much guest love me and my fellow candles because of the way they look at me and become in a trance. I have that affect on people. I draw people in by my light and they tend to forget about their worries and troubles.

That's it, my light consumes peoples' troubles and their troubles melt to wax. The wax represents burned and destroyed troubles. By the way, if wax does get on your furniture, it can usually be easily removed. Be careful not to scrape too hard to get my wax off.

Then, there is my aroma. My scent ignites an entire room, so be diligent in choosing the aroma that will be strong enough, yet subtle enough to work for you, Cinnamon Cider is one of my best scents.

I especially enjoy giving myself to people who work out of their homes, they seem to really appreciate me. I create a connection that helps them think more clearly -- the light I give. House lighting and bulbs can not do what I do because they do not glow nor give aroma. The neat thing about me is, I will never go bad. I am always here for you, and I won't tell your secrets.

Candles come in all sizes shapes and aromas, so I’ll narrow down the choice for you. Cinnamon Cider is the one pictured above. Although, you can get the fragrance of your choice. Woodwick Candles add a nice ambiance to your environment too - Not just for work!

Shop For Candles at Your Discount Outlets

Beautiful candles can be expensive, but you can find them at discounted cost at your local retail outlets. When you purchase the large ones, make sure it's a scent you like. Some fragrances are so strong that they are unbearable, so read the label and smell the aroma first.

I hope you enjoy your candles as much as I do.

    Hi Barbsbitsnpieces, thanks for commenting - I like your thoughts. When I wrote this hub, my mind was off into a 'scentful' world, to take your phrase.

    Thanks, this is lovely and I enjoyed what you wrote about "If candles could talk". If I'm at home in the day time I use little candles for burners with Essential oils and in the evenings, I love the scent to Fragranced candles... Lavender, rose.... The smell lingers long after you've blown it out. I will give your favourite: Cinnamon Cider, a try.

    Great Hub.

    I adore candles, in the bedroom, my bathroom with soft music for a bubblebath and in every other room of the house. I love them as gifts too. Great hub.
