Do you use wax burners or candles to get things smelling good? If wax burners, how many do you have and where do you place them? What is your favorite scent?

I usually ONLY use them if we have no power...

My ds and I went through a fire in our building so we have been definitely affected by that...It happened about a week before Christmas...:(

We don't live there now so we have become a bit less anxious...

Not too long ago I made candles in a Craft group coping/dealing mental health (Support)...it was a lot of Fun, but they are too pretty to use...;)...lol...

Mostly I open the windows and I love real flowers but my ds has some issues so usually it's by trial and error as to what I can use...

Right now I just bought two gel type sented freshners...Lilac for me and an ocean breeze one for him...I need to get some refills for our warmers...I use those in our bathroom...

I used to be a diehard Yankee candle fan but now I use a wax burner with their wax melts. They are absolutely fabulous and I don't have to blow them out when I leave the house.

We use wax warmers.  We have two in our main living area and one of the plug in types in each of our bathrooms.  I don't know that I have a specific scent.  We tend to change it up depending on the seasons.  I love spice/cinnamon type scents in the fall and winter. Yum!
