Actually I don't use wood wicks, but I had a reader ask about them and did some research. Although I would probably love wood wicks, I don't feel they are safe for my house. They have a higher and stronger flame than other wicks. I have 5 doggies, one being a chihuahua who when we least expect climbs onto the tables. She has singed some hair from a few flames and that makes me nervous as is, much less with wood wicks. I also can not vouch for my guys being more careful around wood wicks and can envision a fire.
I adore my candles. I've posted before, but throughout my house there are a total of about 41 candles. Flickering candle light is soooo relaxing! Add to that some great scents and it's a match made in heaven
I'm very responsive to scents. If I'm too overly stressed I just go play with my candles and smell them all and instantly relax!! Not to mention some of those same scents in aromatherapy oils can be used in candles. Aromatherapy candles are a huge craze right now.
