Here are a few useful tips and ideas to help you establish a healthy sleep pattern and routine.    1.  Try and adopt a regular sleep pattern.   If you can go to sleep and get up at the same time every day this will help set your body’s internal clock and improve the quality of your sleep.

How to Look After your Candle

How to Look After your Candle

Once a candle has this “memory ring,” it will continue to tunnel and to burn that way for the life of the candle. Trim your wick!   We cannot...
