GIFT GUIDE: CANDLES
You know what really changes an atmosphere? Scented candles.
I'm a huge fan of Revitalesque's lavender & chamomile scented candle- it is perfect for relaxation and making your home feel like a true place of bliss.
I bought one for my apartment last week and I've been spending more time just reading and vibing with the atmosphere.
My own home now feels like a temple of peace and quiet.
Sоу candles dіѕtrіbutе frаgrаnсеѕ and ѕсеntѕ slightly less than paraffin candles. Paraffin is usually added to make a 'soy blend' which allows for a better scent throw and works better in hotter weather conditions. Soy is often referred to as a superior wax in comparison to paraffin but in reality, there is very little difference in soot production and carcinogenic compounds released by both waxes. The low melting роіnt trаnѕlаtеѕ to сооlеr burning longer lasting саndlеѕ in temperate areas. It also results to a larger-sized liquid wаx рооl, whісh then helps in disseminating еѕѕеntіаl fragrances into the аіr.
Prior to the candle, people used oil lamps in which a lit wick rested in a container of liquid oil. Liquid oil lamps had a tendency to spill, and the wick had to be advanced by hand. In the developed world today, candles are used mainly for their aesthetic value and scent, particularly to set a soft, warm, or romantic ambiance, for emergency lighting during electrical power failures, and for religious or ritual purposes.
Trick candles are a novelty candle often used at children's birthday parties. These candles relight themselves, using a fuse similar to those in fireworks, the principle being that by igniting magnesium inserted into the wick of the candle, the paraffin vapour given off when a candle is blown out can be set alight, and through this, the candle can reignite.
