Candles have been around for many, many years, but it was not too long
ago that candles were just a means of getting some light in a room when
the power went out, and they were a necessity for such emergencies.
Nowadays, the role of candles has changed. Some are beautiful works of
art which it seems a shame to light, others are a custom scented candle
lit and used for relaxation purposes, with their perfume permeating the
air. Candles are used for decorating rooms, too. The choice is yours, and
you have a wide array of colours and shapes to choose from.

Nothing says relaxation and romance like a candle lit room. It seems to
make the rest of the world disappear from sight, so you see only that
which is in the candle's light. This is a good way to forget the worries
of the day, and is an inexpensive way of doing so too. Give it a try one
evening when you feel stressed and feel the tension disappear in a puff
of smoke as you light your candles.

Candles are available for purchase in a variety of places, from basic
emergency candles in the local hardware stores, to wide selections in the
local dollar store, to beautiful artistic creations in home decor stores.
There are candles for every occasion too, for Christmas, Valentine's Day,
etc., and for people with a variety of interests. Some candles have
flowers in them as decoration, others are decorated with shells, or
imitation fish or ... there is a lot of choice out there.

Along with the huge variety of candles, and the ability to make your own
custom scented candle, comes an equally large variety of candle holders.
To make the burning of candles as safe as possible, they need to be in a
safe holder, or on a plate or in a tin, but even so, there are candle
holders that appeal to all sorts of different tastes. There are wall
candle holders as well as candelabras, and numerous glass containers of
various shapes and colours that, provided the candles are inserted
properly and the glass placed on a flat surface, will be safe for you to
burn.
Another advantage of candles, is that you can easily make them yourself,
decorating them, colouring them, and adding essential oils to make a
custom scented candle to help set a certain mood. Candle making is a good
project for a family and a way of making inexpensive gifts at any time of
the year and for any occasion. You can also make candle gift baskets with
the theme, or colour scheme of your choice.

You can vary your candles too by using soy instead of paraffin wax, or
bees wax for more environmentally friendly candles, or you can use gel
for candles. This is available in many different colours and shades, and
is very effective. Of course you can use different shaped containers for
the wax, tins or jars and you can decorate them as you see fit. Or you
can make floating candles, using a wide base for the candle to help it
float.

The choices for candles are many, but there are advantages to a custom
scented candle. You can make it the shape and colour of your choice, and
with the scent of your choice, or you an use essential oils to turn it
into an aromatherapy candle. Make your choice and enjoy!
