Yes, You Absolutely Can Recycle Scent? See How!

When you think about what it means to recycling scent, what do you think about?  Maybe using leftover wax, or you may think of those big fragrance gadgets that you often see in public restrooms that puff bursts of fragrance into the air. Maybe you may think about the refillable cartridges that you place in your little Glade or Air Wick electrical thingy.

It feels great when I've worked really hard and I'm able to splurge on something for myself. With a large family, I can easily get lost in what everyone else wants and forget myself.

Soy Wax Designs

Soy Wax Designs: The Different Designs for Your Soy Wax Candles People are used to using candles for different occasions but many of them are not very attentive to the composition of candle they are burning. For example, sometimes you may burn a candle and see a black, sooty substance coming from the wick, or you may even find that your fixtures or ornaments have acquired some sense of black soot on it. Well, that is very common in a paraffin based candle. Paraffin can also give you a burned chemical undertone that may hinder the true fragrance of the...
