Great ideas! I love cinnamon candles & burn them all year long. If they had a cinnamon perfume out there, I'd buy it!

Thank you for bumping up this thread. The relaxation ideas DO sound great. How about starting a tradition of lighting a beautiful-smelling candle --- AND giving yourself a foot rub with some rich, creamy lotion! If you have someone to share this with - all the better! But extremely terrificv by yourself too.

Great ideas! My family loves candles so I try to keep them lit in every room especially during the holidays.

Good tips! Although Im not very fond of cinnamon candles right now. I got out some of my Christmas items last weekend. My hubby had moved a few of my boxes into the attic..well I normally keep all of my candles in the basement or kitchen storage so they dont melt. One of my favorite cinnamon ones must have been put in the attic in error..it melted and wax got all over several of my favorite christmas items..the red wax actually dyed the items and I couldnt get it off and had to throw a few things away.. learned my lesson thats for sure!

great ideas! I'm not a fan of cinnamon, personally, but a nice vanilla candle from Bath and Body would be nice!

What calms me down is sitting in a dark room with the fireplace burning and nothing but the lights on the tree.

of course, that's AFTER the kids have gone to bed LOL!!

Thank you for reminding all of us to take care of US during this busy holiday season!! I love cinnamon candles. I have one burning right now! I have also heard that mint is relaxing.

I bought an apple-cinnamon candle last week. Unfortunately, it was the last one there. I'll check again this week.

I use my foot spa for those shopping days. I have the little fizzies, the foot scrub and the moisturizer. So it's a real treat for me.
