What if I told you that the lives of HUNDREDS of lamps are extinguished every year, FAR before their time. Gorgeous, vibrant lamps — their beauty, and luminescence snuffed out before they even reach their first birthday.
But, what if I also told you, you can save these lamps by just doing one single thing? You would do it, wouldn't you? You would want to do your part to save these beauties from perishing in an early, tragic demise.
One of our customer service agents shared the following pictures with us, depicting the aftereffects of this single action and the devastation it can cause.
WARNING! THE FOLLOWING PICTURES ARE GRAPHIC IN NATURE AND MAY BE DEEMED TOO INTENSE FOR THOSE UNDER THE AGE OF 90. PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN VIEWING.
What can cause this level of devastation, you may ask?
Overfilling the Ooh La Lamp with Aroma Crystals that cover the top of the mesh cage. One simple act caused the destruction you've witnessed here.
So, Be a Champ and Save the Lamp by following these simple instructions:
- Place your new Ooh La Lamp on a level surface
- Press mesh inner cover in the center of your Ooh La Lamp
- Pour Aroma Crystals AROUND the mesh and inside the glass vessel. DO NOT OVERFILL or cover the top of the mesh cage.
- Plug cord into an appropriate electrical outlet.
- Turn your Ooh La Lamp on. You'll smell the fragrance within five minutes of turning on the lamp and will continue to intensify.
- Use 2-8 hours per day
- Never leave unattended
- Turn off when not in use
Follow these simple steps and your Ooh La Lamp will shine its light and spread lovely fragrance throughout your home for many years to come!

Some of the earliest known candles were sacred artifacts discovered tucked within the tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs. Those Pharaohs weren't paid the big bucks for nothing. They knew that their candles were not just a source of illumination, but they were also aware that something enlightening flickered in those flames.
Early Christians used candles during evening services. But, as their service times shifted toward daylight hours, they continued to include candles in their services. As a result, candles evolved into a sacred way of honoring martyrs and representing the divine light of God. For Catholics, the candle became symbolic for Christ, with the flame representing His divinity; the wick, His soul; and the wax, His body.
A modern example of candles used in a spiritual ceremony is the Unity Candle, often seen as couples take their wedding vows. In some churches, excessive use of flowers is not allowed in decorating the church for a wedding ceremony. Rather, candles are used, creating a wonderful glow that surrounds the bride and groom.
And, while candles are still included in many spiritual and religious ceremonies and events, we often forget their rich history and consistency throughout history. In fact, some of the methods used in early candle making are still used today.
And so, when you light your next candle, whether it's for the enjoyment of the aroma that fills the room or to provide a bit of light, remember that a candle can transform your space into one of tranquility and reflection.
If you need to replenish your candle stash, Celebrating Home Direct is offering reduced shipping on everything in the store through March 21st. And, get FREE shipping on orders of $100 or more!
If you haven't tried our Petite Jar Candles, it's one of our most popular! Try brand new Lemon or Rose fragrance candles, or choose from a wide selection of favorites like Monogrammed Linens, Baked Apple Pie. Gardenia, Pink Cupcake and more!

Step 1: Buy high quality candles. If you're buying your candles from Celebrating Home Direct, you can check that off as "done". But, when you notice soot building up or excess smoke when you extinguish your candles, there are some other measures you can take. Here are some quick and handy steps to reduce or even eliminate sooting in your candles.
What causes soot?
Discovering what causes soot is a good first step in eliminating it. Soot from a candle is caused when there is incomplete combustion of the fuel. In layman's terms, the fuel (liquid wax) is being drawn up the wick to the flame. If the flame is disturbed, the fuel is not being delivered consistently and too much is delivered. The excess fuel is expelled as soot and smoke. Something you probably don't want.
Avoid placing candles in drafty areas
Drafts from vents, open windows, or fans can disrupt the flame in your candles and cause sooting. Choose a spot that is free from drafts and you'll notice a big reduction in smoking and sooting from the candle. Watch the flame on your candle. If it's consistently steady, there are no drafts. If it dances or bounces, try another spot.
Try Candle Cappers or Snuffers
If you're using jar candles, try using a candle capper or snuffer when you extinguish your candle. Candle cappers regulate airflow in and out of the jar and help to reduce sooting. Jar candles can produce more sooting when the wick has burned further down into the jar due to the distance between the flame and fresh air. Candle cappers help to regulate that fresh air flow and that reduces the soot.
Using a candle snuffer not only reduces the chance of splattering hot wax on your nice things, it also reduces smoke. And, it looks very elegant and refined to onlookers and guests (bonus!).
Trim the wick
This is the easiest and quickest way to reduce sooting. Keep candle wicks trimmed to about a quarter inch. If you notice that the flame is still bouncing or unstable even when free from drafts, blow the candle out and trim the wick a little shorter. Repeat this when necessary as the candle burns down.
Buy well-made candles
Candles purchased from Celebrating Home Direct not only have the highest fragrance throw, they're made of a high quality soy wax blend, highest quality fragrance, and have the highest quality braided cotton wicks to ensure a long burn life for your candle. We have a large variety of candles available. We offer the highest quality candle for great prices - as much as 50% below market. And we're not just blowing smoke!

Stand in the middle of your living room and take a good look around. You've sculpted and crafted your home into a statement about you and your family. But, whether your aim was for comfy or high tone, fragrance will give your home an added dimension and depth that you, your family, friends, and visitors will remember for much longer than the color of your carpet. Home fragrance will bring back memories of their time in your home for years to come and it gives your home decor an entirely different level of "you".
Think of home fragrance like music, each room in your house deserves it's own tune. Subtle florals in Gardenia in the living room for relaxing or, if you're entertaining, an invigorating scent like Vanilla might do the trick. And, to enhance the delicious aromas that can already be found in your kitchen, a citrus scent will heighten their appetites and mix well with the fragrances of your favorite culinary creations. For the bath, you might choose a fresh fragrance like Crisp Cotton Breeze and the relaxing scent of Lavender for the bedroom. For the kid's rooms, try something fun like Mango Cooler or Pink Cupcake. Or, better yet, let the kids pick their own fragrances so they can start developing their own unique fragrance palette.
Celebrating Home Direct offers a variety of home fragrance, from candles to wax melts to Ooh La Lamps and Fragrance Crystals. You might choose for your fragrance to be delivered in a wax melt for maximum fragrance throw, or from the wide line of candles offered by Celebrating Home Direct to set a mood. Whatever you choose, you'll be layering on the final touch that will speak volumes about the statement you want your home to make.
Our newest addition, Sea Island Candles, are now available in Rose, Mango Cooler, Baked Apple Pie, and Gardenia scents. Order yours by February 14th and get the low introductory price of only $5.
