I LOVE candles. I Love the scent and atmosphere they create. I recently realized how much heat they were emitting, as I was already overheated while cooking in the kitchen, or were those hot flashes?? Lol! Anyhow, I came up with this idea:  

I am trying to see how long we can go without turning on the heater. We have lots of candles burning in the morning and night in the rooms we‘re in. It’s been fun, and added to a nice atmosphere, and heats up the room!

Granted, we do live in California, but, it has been a bit cold lately.

Tell us if you take up the dare, and how it’s going. :)

    • I love candles too, I just never thought they gave out any heat, or at least not enough....

      I’ll give it a shot.

    • Hey, Dana, it is way too cold in Pittsburgh, PA!  It is suppose to go down to 28 degrees so I need a bit more than candle heat, sister! LOL!  

      However, I am a scented candle lover so I always burn my Mia Bella candles and enjoy them!  My kids enjoy when I light the candles all around our home to make it more cozy!

    • Wow, I’d be concerned about burning that many candles. Usually, candle wax has a meltpoint between 130-180 degrees, depending on if it’s container or pillar. But it doesn’t put out much heat except in the immediate area. Be careful.

      I make candles for a living. I’ve never felt too much temp difference even when burning a large jar, small jar, electric warmer and a mantlepiece of votives.

    • It does create warmth to a certain extent in a small area. Or, was it just a hot flash?! LOL!
