Candles are cool but I hate the open flame. I am scared I or my dogs will knock them off the table and catch my house on fire. I am enjoying the scents with my electric candle warmers. Personally, I have several different styles. One company that sells them is ScentsyTM, which offers a plug-in wall warmer, full-size warmers and mid-size warmers. Some of the my favorite aromas are Eskimo Kiss, Vanilla Cream and Sticky Cinnamon Bun. These are not messy and make you home smell really good!
