Question: Are there Any Restrictions to the Feng Shui Use of Candles?
Are there specific feng shui guidelines for the use of candles? Yes, of course. Candles are the strongest expression of the feng shui element of Fire in your home (if you do not have a fireplace, of course).

As such, there are specific feng shui guidelines that are good to be followed when taking care of the energy of your home.
Answer: Being a Fire feng shui element, candles invoke the energy of purification and inspiration, they warm up the energy and help release daily stress.

Candles are best used in the feng shui areas of South, Southwest, Northeast and Center. When using candles as feng shui cures, be mindful about their colors, as well as the candleholder material/element.

Another important aspect of the use of candles at home is the health aspect as relating to the quality of indoor air.

After experimenting with many different candles, I recently made the decision not to use paraffin candles indoors. Some research shows that the soot from a paraffin candle contains many of the same toxins that are produced by burning diesel fuel.

As with everything, it is not only the looks, but the energy of any given object, and there are important things to know about candles before making an intelligent choice about using them in your home.

Do your own research and go for best candles you can afford; burning a high quality candle in your bedroom for at least 15 min before going to sleep can considerably shift the energy and contribute to a much better sleep.
