With the seasons transitioning from lighter to the darker days of the year, we thought talking about our love of candles might add some brightness to this time. We want to inspire others to love and appreciate candles as much as we do. Still not convinced? Check out a few of our reasons why we think candles are amazing:
Lighting a candle provides a natural 'elemental' way to add warmth, light, intimacy, and sensuality. All this without the use of electronic devices, so noise and artificiality are not needed to enjoy the relaxing and thoughtful qualities of a candle. Lighting a 'small fire' inside can achieve the same effect as a traditional fireplace without all the work needed. Simply having a lit wick aids in the process of understanding the fascinating effects of the elements on the senses.
Plus, being aware of the natural elements constantly in movement around us is a great way to stay grounded in the present moment. Which is why candles or flames are often used in meditation and concentration techniques.
Scent and sensory go hand and hand. Who has not had the experience of smelling something which invoked a strong memory or sensation? Now, this can be a good or even not-so-good experience, but let's just focus on the good feelings and memories that candles can invoke. Certain times of year, holidays spent cooking or eating, and faded-yet-charming experiences can all be invoked from the right scented candle.
Similarly, most are familiar with aromatherapy and its applications. If you're a lover of certain scents and aromatherapy, candles are one the best ways to achieve some of these therapeutic benefits.
We often talk about mood-changing or mood-enhancing techniques through home decor in this space. Well, candles are, of course, one of those techniques or tools to use when a (quick!) change is needed.
For example, to add to or detract from a certain seasonal vibe, candles can assist in that transition whether through use of scents and/or lighting effects (aka mood-lighting).
Transforming the mood of the atmosphere can be achieved quite quickly when lighting a candle or several, especially when specific scents and aromas are taken into consideration.
The easy and relatively inexpensive appeal of candles makes decorating any space a cinch. Candles have been around for a long time and are clearly (and thankfully!) here to stay. Not only does the fire and natural element of a candle fascinate the observer, they make a stylish statement all on their own.
Whether traditional or modern styles appeal to the candle-lover, candles add style, easy decor, and comfortability to one's space. They can add a pop of modern to the home or bring a more relaxed setting to an office space in an instant. A great way to add decor that contributes to a timeless, calming vibe in any room or space.
Thus, they also make great gifts! If you need personal gifts in time for the winter season, stock up now while all our candles are 15% off for a limited time.
