Shipping Rate Snafu

It turns out there has been a problem with the shipping rates on the Light My Fire Candles website.  The problem should be corrected now.  Everything should be shipping at a flat rate of $6.10.  If you are getting a rate different from that, please email me to let me know.

I currently do not offer any type of expedited shipping because I make most products when you order them.  If you need something super fast, then please email me and we can work together to be sure I have all the supplies on hand to make and ship your order immediately.  Otherwise, it takes a few days!

A Moment of Reflection and Warm Wishes

Merry Christmas, Yuletide Greetings and Happy Holidays
Still a week away.  Goodness this year has gone fast!  I can't promise that I will get a chance to post again before Christmas.  Brewing up candles and incense, along with my personal family traditions.  Yay for baking cookies and the Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo! 

Everything is so much more fun now that my oldest rug rat is old enough to know a little better about what's going on.  He goes to bed every night worried that Santa is going to come and eat all of his cookies though.  Somehow I think he'll be ok with sharing his cookies with Santa once he sees how everything works.  I have to admit, one of my favorite thing about having kids is finding joy and excitement in everything again when I see things through their eyes.  How often I walk by Christmas trees without even pausing to notice.  When my babies are with me, it's all "Woooooow!  Look Mommy!"  Makes me stop and take notice.  Finding beauty and excitement in things I've come to take for granted is a Christmas gift all by itself. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.  Make memories.  Love one another.  And never take for granted the things that are important to you. 

Best Wishes,
Danielle Miller

Uses for Fragrance Oils


Have you ever fell in love with a scent and wondered how you could use it?  Let's be creative!  Fragrance oils can be used for all sorts of things.  Let's start with the basics.
  • Use a few drops in an oil warmer.  Fill the bowl with water.  Add a few drops of oil.  Light your tealight underneath and enjoy as the fragrance fills your room.
  • Wear it.  A dab on the wrist or neck or other pulse points make for a wonderful perfume.  And since fragrance oils are oil based, not alcohol based like most perfumes, they will last a lot longer.  Use caution when using citrus or cinnamon type oils as these can be too harsh for some skin.
  • Make your own scented products.  Fragrance oils can be used when making soaps, lotions, or candles. 
Fragrance oils are only limited by your imagination!  Let's add scent to everything!
  • Add a few drops to your furnace filter.  Scent will be wafted through your whole house.
  • Refresh potpourri.  If your pretty pressed petals have lost their scent, put them in a big plastic bag, add some fragrance oil, shake it up and they'll be like new. 
  • Put some oil on cotton balls and throw them in your vaccuum cleaner bag to make your carpet smell fresh.
  • If you have a candle that doesn't have a very strong scent, light it and let burn for a few minutes.  Carefully add a couple drops of fragrance oil into the wax pool. 
  • Add a few drops to a wash cloth or cloth napkin and put in your dryer when you dry your clothes. 

Fragrance oils are available in 150 different scents from Light My Fire Candles at $3.50 for a half ounce bottle.
