I love the look and feel that candles bring to a room, but I can’t help but feel a twinge of anxiety each time I light one. I guess I’ve heard too many horror stories about houses burning down because of candles. I remember a few years back in my hometown a huge fire across the road from my optometrist’s office. The owner had candles lit and left the house to run an errand. When he returned his home was engulfed in flames and burned to the ground. That family lost everything, but was lucky no one was hurt. It’s stories like that make me nervous since it’s so easy to forget. We are human after all and make mistakes.
I recently discovered Flameless Candles from Candle Impressions. These candles look and feel like a real candle. In fact, they even smell like a real candle because they are made of real wax! I receive a 3 pack of Flameless Real Wax LED Candles with three pillars: a 4 inch, 5 inch and 6 inch. When I took them out of the box a soft vanilla fragrance wafted in the air. They are cream colour so would match pretty much any room in my house. I ended up placing them in the dining room on our piano. Its the one room in the house that we aren’t renovating right now!
It’s no surprise to me that Candle Impressions is the world leader in flameless candles. They have an exclusive patented realistic wick that gives off a gorgeous ambiance when turned out. It flickers and glows like a real candle would. I love turning them on in the evening and it helps make the house look and feel more warm and welcoming.
They are run on AA batteries (not included) and even have a remote control so you can turn them on from across the room. They boast the longest battery run time in the industry at 500 hours. They also feature a timer that you can turn on for 5 or 10 hours and can customize to turn on and off at the same time everyday.
Besides the aethestics and functionality, I’m also enjoying the peace of mind the flameless candles bring me. My kids aren’t young anymore, but I would feel much more comfortable using these candles instead of ones that have a real flame. I do, however, have cats. My cats are constantly climbing onto furniture and getting into things they aren’t supposed to. I don’t have to worry if Princess or Misty jump on the piano to investigate.
If I forget to turn them off when I leave the house, it’s not a big deal. They will go off on their own with the timer anyways.
If you love candles and are looking for a way to add an extra element of beauty and sophistication to your decor, consider getting a flameless candle from Candle Impressions. The only safe flame is flameless. I learned that in the United States, candle-caused house fires kill an average of 126 civilians each year and injure 953. I’ve seen that happen to people I know in Canada too.
Check out Candle Impressions to find a store that sells their flameless candles near you. You can also buy them at a variety of online stores as well. The set I received retails for about $37.
They have other styles of candles too including ones for the holidays! It’s almost that time of year again so let’s stay safe.
