I donated 30 masks to Discovery Memory Care, it is a dementia home, here in Sequim. They were very grateful to receive these. I also have had some requests to purchase some of my masks. I am not asking for money, I will you some and I will be making more to send out to other places.
The holiday season is in full swing, and candles are a popular addition to any home. While candles are great for the ambience they create, they also come with a risk. In fact, the top three days for residential candle fires in the United States occur during the holiday season – on New Year’s Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve.
1. Never leave a burning candle unattended. consider lighting candles for a few hours before guests arrive to scent your home and blow them out when the party gets started. Never burn a candle in an area where you might fall asleep.
2. Deck the halls, but space things out. When decorating your home, keep candles away from anything that may catch fire. Watch out for items such as greenery, decorations, and curtains. Consider displaying an electric menorah in your window instead of candles, and save the candles for a sturdy open space like a table. Always make sure that candles are placed at least 3 inches apart.
3. Keep candles out of any pets or children! Make sure your lit candles are just as inaccessible to children and pets to reduce the risk of accidents. Placing them up high and out-of-reach is your best bet. This will also help to make sure they are not toppled over if you many people moving around a room.
Scented candles are also beloved as ornamental flourishes for the home, especially during the holiday season.
At Polarbean.com, we use soy wax, and why?
These candles are made from soybeans, and are supporting the American Farmer, the beans come from the mid-west. Since soybeans can be renewable crops they are generally seen as a more eco-friendly candle alternative.
Cleaner burning. No toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means our candles are less likely to trigger allergies. And no petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles.
•Longer lasting. Soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle.
•Supports our American farmers
•Biodegradable and water soluble. Since our candles are made out of soybeans, they are naturally biodegradable which makes accidental spills easier to clean with just hot water, soap and some elbow grease.
•Stimulate the economy by utilizing a natural, renewable resource.
