Candles create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere in anyone’s home. Unscented candles are the oldest form of mood setting known to mankind. The use of candles can turn a room into a celebratory affair or a romantic one. They bring warmth and relaxation wherever they are used. Unscented candles have been used for centuries. Their first use was to bring light into a room before electricity had been invented. In early times, people used to make their own unscented candles. It has only been in the last 30 years that candles have become scented.
Today, unscented candles are beautifully decorated and come in many shapes. It is very difficult to make a scented candle in an unusual shape because they tend to lose much of their fragrance, and it is much more expensive to make a scented candle into a shape other than a pillar or in a jar. Unscented candles make perfect gifts at any time of the year because of their beautiful presentation. For example, an unscented candle that is in the shape of a cube can be decorated with delicate botanicals on all four faces. When gift wrapped and tied with a silk bow, this beautiful unscented candle makes a statement. This candle can bring a warming atmosphere to any location and using different sizes of the same candle will make a decorative statement in any room. This candle will burn for approximately 40 hours. Unscented candles have a burn time that is longer than a scented candle.
To burn your unscented candle successfully, remember to burn the candle for 1 hour for each inch of it’s diameter before you extinguish it. This means that if you use a candle with a 2 inch diameter, you should burn it continually for 2 hours at a time. This will allow the flame time to melt the wax pool to the outer edge of the candle. This will help your unscented candle to burn down evenly. If you burn the candle for less than 2 hours it will cause the candle core to burn down only in the middle, and this will shorten the candle’s life. If you love candles and have many of them in your home, then following this rule will keep your home filled with beautiful candles for a very long time.
Candles have always brought peace and serenity to the bathtub. There are very few women who have never taken a bath without at least one candle on the edge of the tub. Unscented candles have given women with allergies a chance to enjoy their tub time as well. When stress is taking its toll on your body, pour a glass of wine, turn on the water and light the candles. It’s a very simple way to relieve yourself of the stresses of the world.
