After a thorough spring cleaning session, there is no better finishing touch to give our homes a summer makeover than dotting a few butterflies about the place. Combine them with bright colours and a scented candle or two, and they’re a wonderful symbol of summer to get you in the mood for the sunny weather that’s surely going to break out soon. Hopefully. Any second now. Actually, no promises on that part.
Even if the sun never quite gets its hat on, we can sprinkle a bit of summer around the home with some flowery scents and brightly coloured candles. And don’t forget to add a little touch of this new kind of Butterfly Effect, one which thankfully won’t end with you waking up in a mental institution desperately trying to find some childhood memento to travel back in time with and change everything just one more time in order to avoid losing your arms or turning your best friend into a psychopathic killer.
Butterfly Candle Products You Won’t Regret
One action that certainly won’t end up with a bad memory you wish you could go back in time to change will be the purchase of a Floating Butterfly Scented Candle. These beautiful but affordably priced candles have a sweet summery charm with the wings of the butterfly dusted with shimmering glitter to playfully reflect the light of the flame. Available in either pink or lilac, these scented candles will permeate a vanilla essence throughout your home – a scent which is well known for its relaxing qualities.
You can also get some small butterfly-shaped candles which have a stunningly realistic design (especially considering they are made out of wax) and are available in either pink or blue. They float in a bowl or glass of water which also massively enhances their relaxing effect. Alternatively, there are plenty of candle tins and trays emblazoned with butterfly designs which you can use to decorate your home during the summer months. There are jars featuring one huge butterfly in a variety of colours, plus other candle holders with designs ranging from summer meadow scenes to arty interpretations of the iconic summer creature.
If you are fond of burning fragrance oil or still have a load of tea lights you haven’t used yet, you can use this White Ceramic Oil Burner to fill a room with the dancing shadows of butterflies as their shapes are carved into the wall of the burner. This is a perfect gift for people who likes cosy evenings in with the lights down low.
Why Choose Butterfly Candles?
Butterflies are a regular decorative feature of many household items, sometimes appearing in places we don’t notice very often. In the corners of bed linen such as duvet covers and pillow cases, you’ll usually see them either on their own or in a kaleidoscope of butterflies woven into the pattern. Ornamental pieces such as toothbrush holders or kitchen utensils are other types of ware that the butterfly is often chosen to emblazon. But why it is so popular for household goods?
Well, first and foremost it is a very beautiful creature, but there is more to the symbolism than mere aesthetics. The butterfly represents transformation, and undergoes perhaps the most amazing transformation in the entire animal kingdom. In under a month they go from a creepy-crawly caterpillar to the most colourful of flying creatures flittering across the summer meadows.
Their change comes around so fast, yet they take it all in their stride which is a valuable lesson and a great example for us to follow. As we grow old and whatever else happens to us in our lives, whatever the changes are, we must always keep on being the best we can be with whatever we’ve got. That’s why the butterfly is such an inspiration. So keep some butterfly designed candles close by at all times to light of a summer evening or to fill your home with a beautifully relaxing scent that will help us all get the very best out of the best months of the year.
