As we approach the holiday season, I love filling the house with scented candles. But, that makes for a lot of matches, smoke, soot, and open flames around children. I am also sadly the QUEEN of lighting a candle and forgetting about it before running out the door, so, I decided to get one of these candle warming lamps (I also love this one). These genius lamps use thermal energy instead of fire to melt candles and come with dimmers so you can adjust the intensity of the heat—maximizing or minimizing how scent is dispersed. They melt candles from top to bottom, so they last longer and distribute fragrance more evenly throughout your space. You can also remove the candle and they double as a decorative night light. Win, win.
