Light A Candle


I have candles on my mind.
It is such a simple and solitary gesture.
When the wick is lit and the flame comes forward it warms the heart.
Whether it is to remember someone you loved
or to give thanks for life and the people around you.
For me, it is equivalent to the feeling after taking a deep breath.
Peace.


A few of my favourite home candles:
Voluspa Pomegranate and Patchouli--rich and fragrant, nice addtion to a snowy day.
Daylesford Organic Grapefruit--fresh and clean scent  for the kitchen.
Thymes Frasier Fir--for those who want to be reminded of Christmas every day.
