    I would light this candle in my lounge… is the heart of our home, and where it is out of reach of little 2 year olds!

    Love the gratitude and love theme. I would light it by my kitchen table. We always have a candle at our meals and our kitchen morphs into the living space too, so a double bonus….

    Do I love essential oils! I’ve used all my lavender essential oil and I’m onto the citronella in the burner and I always use these in the bedroom. So **BEDROOM** it will be 🙂 With load shedding I will use this scented candle before I use my little battery operated lamp any day!

    I don’t live at home with my mom but she loves candles so I would light it with her in her living room.

    I’ll light it in my bathroom, while I take a long relaxing bubble bath, then my two year old will hop in the bath cos he loves bubbles and turn my relaxing bath into a full on crocodile and ship battle where the giraffe will hopefully win.

    Got to be next to a giant bubble bath… with a glass of (non-alcoholic) champagne!

    I would light it in my cosy little lounge that my daughter and I spend quality time in…a place where we relax and chat, this is a perfect place to enjoy and appreciate this beautiful candle thank you.

    I LOVE Africology! I would light it in the bathroom whilst having a relaxing bath and then move it to each room as I go!

    I would love to Illuminate my room, enhance and uplift my state of mind, and nurture my body with Africology candles. Now this is a great candle for a spot you spend a lot of time in, be it in a chilled out meditation spot or your home office, to bring on balance. Aromatherapy is an alternative approach for helping the mind, body, and spirit through the use of essential oils and fragrances to create an atmosphere and stimulate the senses. Science and research has shown that many moods and negative emotions can be lifted due to the fragrances or scents that are introduced into the environment. I would use this scented candle for relaxation or when I am are alone taking a candlelight bubble bath. I would love to write a poem or story or read a book while using concentration fragrances. The fragrances will relax my mind and invigorate my + assist in relieving stress and anxiety. . I’d love to burn this at my desk as I write, and I think this is where it’s going to live to remind me to take a break and get some soul food.

    i would light this candle in my new bath in my new home, where the heart always is

    This gorgeous, aromatic candle would have a special place in my lounge and that’s where it would be lit. It would certainly add a special addition to my decor and fragrance the whole room <3

    In our living room, next to the frames of our beloved pets that passed away.

  17. Cindy 06/05/2015 at 12:15 pm #

    I would light it our bedroom before settling in with a good book.

    I would give it to a friend to light on Sunday, as this might be a very tough Mother’s Day for her … the first since she lost one of her children, a special tiny soul in her life. She needs the love and light most.

    in the bathroom … nothing more relaxing than unwinding in a hot deep epsom salt bath with the flickering of candle light and the fragrance of essential oils x

  20. Archenita 08/05/2015 at 3:02 pm #

    Mother would light it on her bedside table, while enjoying a warm cup of hot chocolate and reading “One Day at a Time” by Danielle Steel.
