How do you feel about candles? I'm talking about the scented candles unless you enjoy unscented. Do you have a collection of candles? Why do we enjoy candles so much?


What do you think?

I'll never forget that one candle that I saw in a store called Yankee Candle that was bacon scented.

Just had to mention that.

I once saw a candle that was the smell of old leather and books. I so wanted to buy it but I didn't have my wallet at the time and when I went back it was gone.

Yes and incense but i've since stopped using either after questioning the possible health complications of inhaling the byproducts in their smoke/vapors.

Research on candle smoke and it's ties to cancer seem to come up with mixed and sometimes conflicting results but at best I'd rather be safe than sorry. However, studies on incense have found there smoke quite unhealthy to breathe. Now I would say minimum exposure in a large well ventilated area would pose minimal risk as you're diluting the concentration considerably but let's be honest, most of us light these in our relatively small bedrooms.

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying for anyone to stop using them but you might want to rethink where you light them and how to better ventilate said area.

If anything I would recommend using Wax Melts with Electric Candle Warmers (flameless). While still questionable at best as there are still toxins in them being released into the air via evaporation, they don't produce any smoke which carries other carcinogens.


p.s. My favorite candle scent is apple cinnamon.

I was going to ask why would I like unscented candIes and wondered how they'd taste when I realized you meant candLes.

I am not all here...

I do, however, like marbled-colored candles... unscented marble candles with colored flames (the wick I suppose is the thing does the fancy color thing). XD

Yes, I almost buy exclusively from dwhome.

I generally love marine, woodsy, herbal and citrus ones.

I'm always afraid I'll forget to put them out, so I don't burn candles much. When I do burn them, I don't like super sweet or obnoxious scents.
