Don’t you love candles? We all do! I don’t know how about
you but every time I go homeware shopping, I end up with some candles! I love
quiet weekend nights, when I burn them in my living room or taking a bath
surrounded with light-up candles. There is something magical in it. Candles,
will not only bring a nice ambience to your room, but also can help you relax
and focus. Many candles contain special oils that work wonder. There are also fragrance candles, if you
purchase a good quality your room will be full of delicate scent. Avoid cheap
candles, the smell can be very overpowering and genuine will make you fell
unwell. If you burn food or have unpleasant smell at home, candles also can
help to masked that.
I was gifted my candles from PartyLite Candles concept. PartyLite Candles arrived fast and well
packed. Despite delicate glass, nothing was broken. As soon as I have opened
the box I could nicely smell the candles. Inside I have found a real rainbow of
colours and scents. My favourite was little trinket box with elegant damask
pattern and mirrored top from their Forbidden fruits series. Another box
contained the multi-coloured tea candles. It’s a real bucket of smells. I burn
few already and its really nice, fragranced smell, not to strong but delicate
and it really made me feel relaxed in my own home. Another I loved was the
Japanese Yuzu, and not because the wax is pink: ) very nice, oriental smell and
I already burn the candles every night and it’s still full. I hate when candles
burn to fast! I have packed few of my candles to take with my on my holiday! My
hotel room is going to smell so amazingly as well! PartyLite also have amazing
range of SmartScent and Flameless Fragnances.
There are so many types of candles but these below are the
1. Tealights & nightlights. Very cheap and mostly used
when many of them as you can use them to create letters, shapes. They can also contain
fragrance like the Forbidden Fruits by PartyLite.
2. Container candles.
These come mostly in jars or glass containers in various sizes. Often
they have many wicks which allows more light like for example Essential Jar
Candles. They don’t particularly burn faster than single wicks if good quality.
You can place generic topamax cost them anywhere.
3. Dinner candles. Mostly used with candlabras and candlestick. Long & thin candles used for
occasions. If you use them during meals
use natural beewax as this won’t overpower
the food and bring delicate honeyed scent.
4. Church/ Pillar candles.
These come in any sizes and shapes but mostly are big chunky round or
square candles. These are very long-lasting and you can place them on the
floor, use in lanterns or glass votive. Perfect for decorating windows or floors.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
• Trim wicks to about ½ cm each time before lighting, to
avoid them bending to the side (with the exception of tealights, votives and
Nature’s Light jars – do not trim these).
• For all candles, please take care to position the wick so
that it points towards the centre.
• If the wick is too
short and is in danger of ‘drowning’. Extinguish the candle and use a tissue to
remove some of the wax surrounding the wick.
• Position candles at least 4cm apart, if burning more than
one at the same time.
• If a ‘wick blossom’, develops on the wick, extinguish the
candle, remove the impediment, and then relight the candle.
• Ensure that no foreign objects such as dead matches or
remnants of trimmed wicks get into the liquefied wax. Foreign objects tend to
become additional ‘wicks’ and this may result in uneven burning of the candle.
• Place candles on flat surfaces. Avoid placing in direct
sunlight and on hot surfaces such as windowsills, terraces, tiled stoves,
televisions and computers.
• With tealights and votives, depending on the fragrance/
colour and surrounding temperature, a wax residue may remain.
• For best results use a snuffer to extinguish the candle
• Do not remove the sticker at the base of the candle, as
this may result in pulling out the wick. • The warmer the surrounding
temperature, the more easily candle wax liquefies. • When burning the candle in
a wall sconce, discolouration on the wall may occur over time with extensive
use due to the heat of the candle.
