Serene

Burning candles are a reflection of our emotional being and help illuminate our hearts when we feel overwhelmed, providing serenity.

All the darkness in the world cannot put out the light of a single candle.”

Confucius.

This original candle, made with 100% soy wax, was given to us yesterday by my young son and his partner. (Book&Glow)

221B Baker Street: Dark wood furniture, leather books and documents everywhere, a violin in a corner, the pipe on the table, a steaming pot of tea and so much accumulated dust.

This candle is pure Sherlock!

As they explained to us, they wanted to gather our tastes in it, for my husband those smells of old wood, leather and tobacco, for me? Sherlock is always a good idea to read!!! accompanied by a cup of tea.

Comes with tips for use:

to enjoy it to the fullest, trim the wick just a little before lighting it every time and let it burn between 30 minutes to 3 hours. Pick a good book, play some music and have a cup of your favorite brew.

To continue with this relaxed and serene atmosphere that we are creating, I will continue with candles.

I came to my feet and she held out something wrapped in a piece of cloth. It was a thick candle that smelled of lavender.

“What’s inside of it?” I asked.

“Happy dreams,” she said. “I put them there for you.”

Conversation between Kvothe and Auri from the book The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss.

I read it a few years ago and now I listen it on the way to work. I like it a lot, and I just hope that next year we can finish the trilogy at last. 🤞

  1. An excellent choice for the week Ana, honestly I hadn’t thought of candles but you’re so right – dimming the lights and lighting candles is wonderful for creating calm and serenity.

    1. I prefer spaces with less dust, more orderly and without the smell of tobacco… Although the violin and the tea do not bother me.
      Have a good Christmas, Robert, and above all take good care of yourself.
