A Guide to Styling Your Space, Setting Your Intention, & Illuminating Your Life
by Devon Fredericksen
This book would make a lovely gift for a candle lover, even if that person is you. It begins with lots of information on how to choose just the right types of candles. Following are sections on how candles can be used to set a mood or create a particular space in a room. There are also some mindfulness-like sections. For example, candles may be used in rituals (from birthdays to mourner’s candles and more) or self-care. Who would have thought that just a small candle could do so much?
The introduction notes that candles are used for relaxation and romance. They are also believed to symbolize the impermanence of life by some religions. In addition to information on the role of candles this title includes practical projects; for example, readers can learn how to make their own candles.
I sometimes light candles, especially in the autumn when the nights start to get longer. Now, I may use them even more!
Many thanks to NetGalley and Zeitgeist for this title. All opinions are my own.
