Review: Wick Dipper

Wick Dipper

This is the best way to extinguish your candles. You want to dip your wicks into the melted wax and then lift them back out to extinguish them. This helps to retain the lovely scent of the candle in your house. Blowing out the wick only causes your house to smell of burnt out candle.

For the price of this item, it is well worth it. It is only $4.50 CDN and when you only smell the candle instead of the smell of burnt wick later on you will be glad for it.

Candle Quote

“When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?"

The Nature of Blue

Nature of Blue:
A natural color, from the blue of the sky, blue is a universal color. The cool, calming effect of blue makes time pass more quickly and it can help you sleep. Blue is a good color for bedrooms. However, too much blue could dampen spirits. 

Culture of Blue:
In many diverse cultures blue is significant in religious beliefs, brings peace, or is believed to keep the bad spirits away.

Blue conveys importance and confidence without being somber or sinister, hence the blue power suit of the corporate world and the blue uniforms of police officers. Long considered a corporate color, blue, especially darker blue, is associated with intelligence, stability, unity, and conservatism.
