February Candle of the Month: Pink Petals!

February is definitely a month for romance. It’s also a good time of year to start dreaming about the warmer months (and hey, they’ll show up sooner or later, right?). Luckily, you can invest in both romance and island getaways with the City Creek Candles Pink Petals Candle–the February candle of the month!

Pink Petals combines three wonderful floral scents: roses, spring lilies, and island orchids. Roses are a classic romantic flower, rich and sophisticated in scent. Spring lilies will remind you that warmer months, like April and May, are just around the corner. They’re a little brighter and sweeter in scent. Last but not least, island orchids will transport you to a tropical getaway (and we could all use a vacation around this time of year)!

Practice Candle-Sense this October!

Did you know? October is National Fire Prevention Month!

October

Fire Prevention Week (October 6 – 12) was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, which began on October 8, 1871, but continued and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871. Ever since, organizations have been educating people on fire prevention and safety. Interesting enough, most fires begin in the kitchen and are cooking related. Secondly, fires occur due to improper use of candles – Which is where we come in!

Chicago-fire1

We believe in “Practicing Candle-Sense” and “Going-Flameless” to create public awareness about consumer use. Candle Warmers was created on the basis of safe candle use. That’s why our line is flame free and spark free. Instead of having the traditional wick, we use warming plates, lamps and lanterns to melt the candle wax.

Many people use candles in their homes for a number of purposes including decor, aroma and lighting. Sometimes, people can get occupied and forget about their burning candles. So by choosing Candle Warmers, you can still keep you home smelling wonderful with safety in mind!

10 Tips for Surviving Dorm Life

College transition is an exciting, yet scary time in a student’s life! Dorm life can be intimidating, so we’ve created a list of 10 things that will make any new college student feel right at home!

1. Organize Organize Organize! Dorm rooms are known to be very small, so it’s extremely important to stay organized all year round. Avoid the stress of searching through piles of clothes before heading to a test, and pick up a dry erase board for notes and reminders!

2. Decorate your walls. Nothing is more lonely than 4 blank white walls. Recreate your room from home by filling your walls with your favorite people and loved ones!

Colorful Dorm

3. Privacy! Security is important in the dorm rooms, especially if you are sharing with a roommate or going to have guests over. Find the right locks and take preventative action.

 4. Go green. Dormitory rooms can be stuffy. Go to your local greenhouse and pick up a small plant. Having some ferns in your room will lighten your mood and provide some extra oxygen.

Small Plant

5. Candle warmers are a must! Abide by your campus’ open flame policy and use a Candle Warmer to warm your favorite scent. Change the candle depending on your mood, all while keeping your room smelling fresh!

6. Add a rug or carpet. Space can be limited in the dorm rooms. Snag up a rug or carpet for on the floor studying or lounging.

 7. Lighting is key! Small lamps, desk lamps and other lights will be a perfect addition for your room. Dorm lights don’t always produce the best lighting, so come prepared for those late night study sessions.

Dorm Lamp

8. Personalize. Don’t forget to bring your favorite items to show off to your roommates. A picture of your family, cool postcards from places you’ve traveled or DIY projects are just a few on the list.

9. Use a shoe rack. Organize your shoes and sneakers with a hanging shoe rack. These are convenient and efficient for all those messy shoes. You can easily hang these from the back of your bathroom door.

ShoeRack

10. Storage. Pick up some plastic bins and containers for organizing clothes, accessories and even snack foods. Loft your bed and store them away!

This candle is sure to melt your heart and fill your senses with the most vibrant aromas of being in paradise!

Paradise

With City Creek Candles, your candle is more than just a candle! All wax melts are made with the finest fragrance, wax, and wicks and are poured in the USA.

Don’t forget to relax this August! Long summer work days, hectic schedules, and heading back to school, can cause some serious stress. Take charge of your mantra and strengthen your body, mind and soul with a simple candle meditation routine.

Find a quiet area and dim the lights. Using Escape to Paradise, imagine you are on the beach and devour the moment. Take 10 to 15 minutes to unravel and deeply meditate. This method will allow you to mentally detox and reach harmony!
