Candles are just a solid block of wax with an embedded wick which is ignited to provide light but there are many reasons to implement them in your life.

Light

Placing a candle in front of a mirror generates a reflection of the flame that doubles (or seems to double) the light in a room.  Use a large mirror over our fireplace hearth.  You can line up candles of various sizes along your hearth, entertainment center or table.  The combination of the flames and the reflections results in a glow that can illuminate your living room.

Festivities

It’s a practiced tradition to put candles on a birthday cake so that the birthday boy or girl can make a wish and blow them out.  Candles are also used in wedding celebrations.  From the traditional Unity candle to lovely centerpieces that feature candles to floating tea lights.  Add warmth and intimacy to your backyard barbecues and parties with candle lanterns, tapers, and votives.  Have a pool or pond?  Use those floating tea lights to create a backyard paradise.

Romance

Candles create mystery and romance, and who couldn’t use a little mystery and romance in their life?  Set the mood with candles.  Enjoy a candlelit dinner, create a warm, inviting and sensual ambiance to a bedroom, or enjoy a sexy, seductive bath with your lover. 

Relaxation

You should take just a few minutes a day to sit back and relax; you will find yourself feeling so much better emotionally and physically.  What better way to relax than with candles?  The soft glow and enticing scents will give you a warm and fuzzy feeling.

These are just a few reasons you should make candles part of your everyday life.  Celebrations, whether as parties, romantic evenings or just a quiet night at home alone are made better with the soft glow of candlelight.
