Why I Am a Candle Purist

In a world filled with gimmicky, coloured, and overly adorned candles, I stand firm as a candle purist. For me, candles are not about flashy designs or exotic colours; they are about the pure, unadulterated beauty of light. Plain candles, devoid of unnecessary frills, capture the essence of what candles have been for centuries: a source of illumination, warmth, and tranquility.

Firstly, I love the simplicity of plain candles. Anyone who knows me will confirm I’m pretty allergic to colour (However watch this space). From my neutral interior to white flowers and my wardrobe – I’m kinda bland!

Apart from my bookshelves where books are carefully arranged in a rainbow. A plain white candle fits seamlessly into any decor, enhancing the ambience without overpowering it. They possess a classic charm that transcends fleeting trends, making them a versatile choice for any setting, whether it’s a cosy living room, a sophisticated dinner table, or meditation space. 

The focus on the tiny flame and light it gives off has always been my appreciation of plain candles. Without the distractions of colour or decoration, the flame becomes the focal point.  The quality of light from a candle is essential for creating an atmosphere of peace and calm, qualities often sought but seldom found in today’s fast-paced world. I’m even keen on unscented candles.

For me, the allure of a candle lies not in its appearance but in the gentle, unwavering light it offers, guiding us to a state of calm and reflection.
