I love candles. I love the lighting they create, the smell, the feeling you get when one is burning, all of it. I especially like beeswax. I worked for a time at a great little shop here in New Mexico that makes and sells some wonderful candles. There is not a fragrance to them other than the beeswax itself which has become so comforting to me. I miss walking into work everyday and being hit with that amazing smell. I learned the benefits of beeswax and burning it as opposed to paraffin making it quite difficult to burn anything else. You can go to to get yours. I highly recommend it if you like candles and especially if you are sensitive to the smells of most of what you find out there
