Now is the time when I usually start to think about rewarding myself for a job well done – especially after the big family dinner we’ll be putting together on Sunday. What I like to do, if I have time to think about it, is get a little something festive to warm my home in the New Year. Since I’m addicted to deliciously scented candles, I usually turn here.
Dark Candles is a
based business that opened in 2003. I have been a patron for seven years and I cannot say enough good things about proprietor and head candle maker Helena and her wonderful products. Not only does she offer candles in a variety of gothic themed scents, there are also wax melts, scented oil, body care and related products available. They do ship internationally, so don’t be shy if you aren’t a Dallas, Texas resident. U.S.
My personal favorite scents are Lilith, Graveyard and – most of all – the minty delight called Winter Solstice. Click over and poke around if you have a minute; the offerings are extensive and fun.
Finally, a thank you to Undine and the folks at Poe Head for intelligent discussions in 140 characters that planted the seed for this post. Following them is worth your while. A votre santé ~
