I used to keep a cluster of those store-bought candles around the house; they don’t go bad you know. <note sarcasm>
I’d be sure to run to the mall and grab them on sale…you know the store, you can smell it before you even walk in and grab that basket you’re about to fill up with lotions and potions. Oh! And that ‘buy two get one free’ sale? It hooked me every. single. time.
I had a collection alphabetically organized in the linen closet that decorated our home for every possible occasion. My arsenal ranged from seasonal candy cane scented wicks at Christmas time to pumpkin spice as a mandatory gateway to welcome fall.
I hoarded candles that smelled like clean laundry, watermelon, fresh-cut grass, vanilla cupcakes, and even fresh-frying bacon. How could that not be healthy? <note continued sarcasm>
Then, I started questioning the benefits of those bargains I was collecting.
