I See the Light!

I am kinda a "greenie". I try to live a life that is as kind to Mother Nature as possible. Being that the month of April is when we celebrate Earth Day, I decided to write a post that brings design and green living together. I love candles, but came to find out that my love of candles could be a very non-earth friendly practice unless I changed my burnin' ways. Did you know that the traditional candles we buy today are made with a form of oil and not a healthy kind, the petroleum kind. Also, a lot of traditional candles use lead in there wicks and have a very "dirty burn". So, how was a green girl like me going to continue on with her candle love affair? I had to find a "green" candle. To the rescue came a site I love They have beautiful candles that are petroleum and lead free, but still smell divine. They come in lots of scents and designs and are very reasonably priced. The one I have in the picture is there "Milk" scent. It burns for up to 100 hours and only cost me $20 bucks. It shipped to me faster then I ever thought possible, and the scent really does fill the room. I love it, and can't wait to try other scents. They have designs to fit in with lots of different decor, and you can feel good knowing that your candle is not just beautiful, but that it is not filling your house up with nasty chemicals. It's a win-win!
