The Warmth of a Candle Flame
by, Matha Wood

This week has been extremely frigid here in the Midwest as well as other parts of the country. As these cold winter winds blow there is warmth and comfort in lighting scented jar candles in your home. These scented soy chunk candles can impart relaxing comfort in a room and add an ambiance of warmth and serenity. Humans have always been warmed by the heat of fire, even one as small as a candle flame. The mere presence of a flame, no matter how small, give the human psyche the feeling of warmth and security.

Adding Fragrance for Additional Warmth

When you add warm, rich fragrances it makes your home a cozy place to escape the freezing winter temperatures. Or by adding fragrances associated with warmer temperatures, like spring or summer scents you can "trick" your senses into feeling the warmth of those seasons. We recognize the warmth of a fire, but we also associate certain fragrances with warmth and comfort, as well. The aromas of cinnamon, cedar wood, mulled cider, gingerbread, hot apple pie, or even coffee scented candles; any fragrance with warm spices delivers a feeling of being enveloped in warmth. Choosing fragrances that remind you of spring, like lilac, lavender, or victorian rose or summer fragrances like berry blast, fun in the sun, or coconut banana can also give you the feeling of those warmer seasonal breezes blowing through your home.

Light a Scented Soy Candle and Enjoy the Warmth

As the bitter winter winds continue to blow outside, there is nothing better than to light a scented chunk candle with warm spicy fragrances or spring and summer fragrances, curl up with a soft and snuggly comforter, a good book, and enjoy not only the fragrance, but the warm glow of candlelight.
