Red, Blue, Green, or maybe Purple?
Whether consciously or not, colors say a lot about us. From the choice of our clothing to our very own four walls, the colors we use to present ourselves are an expression of our deepest emotions and unconscious perceptions. There's even a dedicated science surrounding our relationship with the colors that surround us: the so-called color psychology.
Do you believe there are scents that can help you simply relax after a stressful day? Scents that gift you with a sense of inner calm and harmony, while also giving you an extra dose of energy to keep giving it your all? Ideally, experiencing such a fragrance repeatedly, even in everyday life, and enjoying it, even if only for a short time, would be perfect.
Why not give essential oils a try, as they contain the concentrated life force of an entire plant.
The favorite candle that held many cherished memories has unfortunately burned out in the end, its familiar scent completely faded away.

And with the stylish candle jars from Kringle and Country Candle, even after burning out, so many more memories can be created. Surprised? Then join us on our little journey through the house as we show you how to give new life to your candle jars with ease.
Fire is undeniably one of humanity's most important discoveries. For our ancestors, taming and harnessing this natural force for our purposes was a challenging endeavor. Yet, it dramatically eased our lives in many ways. It provided us with cooked food, warmth, and, not least of all, light independent of the sun, moon, and stars.
The candle was a milestone in our use of light. Torches burned out quickly, making them limited as primitive light sources. Scientific findings indicate that this problem was evident to our earliest ancestors. Even Cro-Magnon people used stone vessels with a wick burning in liquid fat or oil — and this was happening about 40,000 years ago.
In the year 1858, John Landis Mason invented and patented the Mason Jars that are now well-known. The Ball Corporation, a company that early on focused successfully on manufacturing glass containers, is responsible for the term Ball Mason Jars being commonly used today. The Ball Mason Jars feature an external thread around the glass opening, to which a metal ring can be screwed. This metal ring presses a separate, disc-shaped steel lid against the edge of the glass. An integrated rubber ring on the underside of the lid ensures a hermetic seal. As nothing can enter or exit, Mason Jars are perfect for preserving food.
Milk Paint is also known in this country as Milk Paint or Casein Paint. Casein, a protein component that is also found in milk, is an extremely important binder in Milk Paint. In addition to the included casein, clay, lime, and earth pigments are part of Milk Paint.
The natural Milk Paint is very environmentally friendly and even compostable. Furthermore, it is free from chemical preservatives. Petroleum products are also not used in the colors. Additionally, lead is completely avoided.
