Why Fragrance is Essential for Your Home

Why Fragrance is Essential for Your Home 0

 
Stand in the middle of your living room and take a good look around. You've sculpted and crafted your home into a statement about you and your family. But, whether your aim was for comfy or high tone, fragrance will give your home an added dimension and depth that you, your family, friends, and visitors will remember for much longer than the color of your carpet. Home fragrance will bring back memories of their time in your home for years to come and it gives your home decor an entirely different level of "you".
Think of home fragrance like music, each room in your house deserves it's own tune. Subtle florals in Gardenia in the living room for relaxing or, if you're entertaining, an invigorating scent like Vanillamight do the trick. And, to enhance the delicious aromas that can already be found in your kitchen, a citrus scent will heighten their appetites and mix well with the fragrances of your favorite culinary creations. For the bath, you might choose a fresh fragrance like Crisp Cotton Breeze and the relaxing scent of Lavender for the bedroom. For the kid's rooms, try something fun like Mango Cooler or Pink Cupcake. Or, better yet, let the kids pick their own fragrances so they can start developing their own unique fragrance palette.
 
Celebrating Home Direct offers a variety of home fragrance, from candles to wax melts to Ooh La Lamps and Fragrance Crystals. You might choose for your fragrance to be delivered in a wax melt for maximum fragrance throw, or from the wide line of candles offered by Celebrating Home Direct to set a mood. Whatever you choose, you'll be layering on the final touch that will speak volumes about the statement you want your home to make.

Our newest addition, Sea Island Candles, are now available in Rose, Mango Cooler, Baked Apple Pie, and Gardenia scents. Order yours by February 14th and get the low introductory price of only $5.

Enhance that with the perfect home fragrance from Celebrating Home Direct. Happy Shopping!

How to Reduce Sooting in Candles

How to Reduce Sooting in Candles 0


Step 1: Buy high quality candles. If you're buying your candles from Celebrating Home Direct, you can check that off as "done". But, when you notice soot building up or excess smoke when you extinguish your candles, there are some other measures you can take. Here are some quick and handy steps to reduce or even eliminate sooting in your candles. 

What causes soot?

Discovering what causes soot is a good first step in eliminating it. Soot from a candle is caused when there is incomplete combustion of the fuel. In layman's terms, the fuel (liquid wax) is being drawn up the wick to the flame. If the flame is disturbed, the fuel is not being delivered consistently and too much is delivered. The excess fuel is expelled as soot and smoke. Something you probably don't want. 

Avoid placing candles in drafty areas

Drafts from vents, open windows, or fans can disrupt the flame in your candles and cause sooting. Choose a spot that is free from drafts and you'll notice a big reduction in smoking and sooting from the candle. Watch the flame on your candle. If it's consistently steady, there are no drafts. If it dances or bounces, try another spot.

Try Candle Cappers or Snuffers

If you're using jar candles, try using a candle capper or snuffer when you extinguish your candle. Candle cappers regulate airflow in and out of the jar and help to reduce sooting. Jar candles can produce more sooting when the wick has burned further down into the jar due to the distance between the flame and fresh air. Candle cappers help to regulate that fresh air flow and that reduces the soot.
 
Using a candle snuffer not only reduces the chance of splattering hot wax on your nice things, it also reduces smoke. And, it looks very elegant and refined to onlookers and guests (bonus!).

Trim the wick

This is the easiest and quickest way to reduce sooting. Keep candle wicks trimmed to about a quarter inch. If you notice that the flame is still bouncing or unstable even when free from drafts, blow the candle out and trim the wick a little shorter. Repeat this when necessary as the candle burns down.

Buy well-made candles

Candles purchased from Celebrating Home Direct not only have the highest fragrance throw, they're made of a high quality soy wax blend, highest quality fragrance, and have the highest quality braided cotton wicks to ensure a long burn life for your candle. We have a large variety of candles available. We offer the highest quality candle for great prices - as much as 50% below market. And we're not just blowing smoke!
