More Amazing Fragrant Gift Ideas for Transforming your House into a Home!
Today I thought I’d continue with my article from last week in which I shared with you all how I transformed my house into a home simply by using candles and fragrant gifts I found on SkinStore.com.
First I’d like to share some candles that I purchased but didn’t have room to tell you about in my last article.
This candle is such a fabulous gift for anyone (and a great gift to yourself). It fills the air with a luminous aroma of French cassis, pomegranate and sweet tangerine. Aromatherapeutic candles use the power of plants and flowers to lift your mood, calm overwhelming anxieties, and awaken and energize your spirit. I’m in love with this candle!
My very favorite fragrant gift for the home is Molton Brown Sleep Cedrus Room Aroma Rocks. Anyone who has a heck of a time with getting a good night’s sleep or who can’t rest all that well needs this precious gift!
Reduce stress and invite a dreamy night’s sleep into your bedroom by opening this potent box. Natural rocks of acacia tree sap are drenched in fragrance of cedrus and lavender oils which diffuse into the air creating an incredibly relaxing restful ambiance. The oils such as cedrus, lavender and orange promote and encourage sleep and relaxation. This is an insomniac or anxious person’s must-have!!
Here are some important candle usage and safety tips from some of the companies I’ve been writing about in this candle series. Some are quite obvious but are great reminders to keep you and your home and family safe while using candles. Other’s are great tips (that I know I never knew of) to get the most out of your new candles.
Directions For Use (Information found via various brands that sell fragrant gifts and candles on SkinStore.com):
To prevent fire, never let a candle burn out of your sight, keep it out of children's and pets reach, and never place it near anything that can catch fire. Place candle on a heat-resistant surface. Once extinguished, allow to cool before touching. Never burn a candle for more than 3 hours at a time. Discard container and discontinue use when 1/2" wax remains. Always trim wick to 1/4" and remove any debris before lighting.
Always light candle from base of wick. Keep lit candle out of children's reach. Never leave burning candle unattended. Only burn on a stable, non-flammable surface. Enjoy a room filled with a luminous aroma.
To Extend the Lifetime of Your Candle:
• Before lighting your candle, straighten out the wick and trim the wick to 1/4 inch - 5 mm.
• Every time the candle is lit, it is preferable to make the wax melt over its whole surface before extinguishing it.
• Avoid exposing to drafts.
• Never burn the candle completely. Dispose when 1 to 2 mm of wax remains in container.
Always place lit candle on heat resistant surface. Trim wick to 1/2 inch before each lighting. Stop use when 1/2 inch of wax remains. Never burn unattended. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
Sundari reminds us to remove candle from the carton.
The fragrant gifts mentioned in these two candle articles definitely do transform your house into a home but they actually do more than that. They contribute to our own beauty as well as they calm our senses and lift our spirits producing a beauty that makes us look even more beautiful from the inside out!
