By Nina Russell

Candles, it used to be a boring tool used for lightning purposes. Nothing more. But now that we have electricity, candles has lost its original purpose. Instead, candle now comes in a variety of scent, color and smooth texture.

In the past, candles is used as a practical tool to light up the darkness. But now, it serves a purpose when your electricity is cut off or when you need to set the theme and mood for your house or a particular area of your house. One of the best candles to do this is soy candles because of its environmental friendly features that doesn't damage your house's furniture.

Soy candles are highly recommended to be used for dinner settings. This is because of the fact that they do not release toxic soot and thus makes them environment and health friendly. Besides setting the mood on dinners, you can do a lot more exciting things with soy candles. For one thing, soy candle are great creating a romantic setting. Let us examine its main characteristics and how these features make a soy candle a great romantic decorative piece.

Like it or not, colors play a huge role in setting the mood for your dinner. (or any occassion for that matter) For some unknown reason, human connects color with powerful emotions. For example, many associate the color red for love, passion and intensity. Taht's why you need to be clear of your purpose before you choose a color for your candle. Is your purpose to romance your partner or to make him relax?

It has already been scientifically proven that scents can affect the human mind and thus the mood of a person. It is in this theory that aromatherapy was based. Your choice of scents for your candles is very important. If you want to create a romantic setting, vanilla scent should be your choice over lemon. On the other hand, if you prefer to create a tropical setting, you surely would go for a lemon scent.

Finally, you need to choose the right kind of shapes. They come in different sizes and shapes? Yes, they do. In fact your creativity and imagination is the limit. Don't just buy a pillar type shape, it's boring. You can choose from heart shape or even animal shapes.

I hope you understand the full implication of choosing the right scent, color and shapes of your candles. It can have a great effect once you get the right combination.

But you must remember that all three elements is highly linked to each other. This means the color green wont' go well with the heart shape in vanilla scent. So you should always keep that in mind when you're mixing and matching the three elements.
