Candles are so romantic and mysterious...when did candles become the definition of romance? 

We spoke about the origin of the candle and which candle is best for you in Eco Romantic Candles....Love Affair

Many claim it's the glow of light against a face....or low light which is complimented by candles is the reason for the romantic allure of candles.

I think the romance of the candle heated up in the early years of the Victorian Era because everyone used candles to see before electricity was discovered in the late 1800's. Portable sources for light such as candlesticks, candelabras and oil lamps, or the light of the fire was used to see after sundown.

The romance of candle still lingers and since electric usage has increased and conserving energy is more important than ever...I say go back to using candles it brings people together.

Candle Safety Alert
Did you know that 7 out of 10 U.S. households use candles! The candle fragrance is the most important characteristic of a candle and did you know that scented candles are made mostly of paraffin and that paraffin wax emits toluene, benzene, and a host of other toxins linked to asthma, eczema and cancer?

Be romantic the green way and choose an eco-candle!
