Candle Drama

18 Jan

I love candles. Any size. Any type. I love em all! πŸ™‚ I find it so soothing to have a candle burning while I’m puttering around the apartment, it helps if the candle smells pretty but some of them I burn just because I like the look of the candle or I’m trying to get it down a bit so when it is on display it looks more creative lol πŸ˜›

I received a lovely smelling candle at Christmas time, the scent is black cherry. I would never have thought of that scent but as soon as I sniffed it I couldn’t wait to burn it and have that scent fill my apartment.

Smells amazing!

Smells amazing!

Unfortunately, the pressure change in the plane cracked the jar the candle is in and according to the sticker on the bottom of the jar and results of many a google search if there is a crack in the glass you should not burn the candle. NoooOOOOoooo! 😦

Can you see the cracks in the glass?

Can you see the cracks in the glass?

Not sure if you can see the cracks in the glass, there are two of them and they are thwarting my ability to light my candle, boo!

I keep debating on burning it anyways, maybe putting it inside my deepest pot (without the lid obviously lol) so if it explodes or something the glass is at least a little bit contained but then I think that is probably a bad idea, I dunno, I haven’t decided yet, shrug.

I asked my mom if she remembered where she bought it from so I could look for it here but she couldn’t recall. When I was in Safeway the other day I found this…

New candle!

New candle!

It is Juicy Black Cherries instead of just Black Cherry, which, you wouldn’t think would make a difference but it does a little bit. When neither candle has been lit and I sniff them both they don’t smell quite the same. The one my mom gave me smells better but this one isn’t bad. I figure when I have finished burning the one I bought from Safeway I will attach a wick to the bottom, melt the wax from the candle I am not supposed to burn because of the stupid jar, pour that wax in to this jar and boom! Second chance at burning the lovely smelling candle I got for Christmas! πŸ™‚

I never thought taking candles on a plane would be problematic but not only did the candle I was given get damaged but some of the candles I made and took with me had side effects. Those ones shrunk so if you tip the jar upside down the candle will slide out, fully formed, it’s weird. I’m assuming they will be ok when lit, and hey, maybe when they get lit they will somehow secure themselves to the jar? Here’s for wishful thinking! πŸ™‚
