By now, most of us are aware of the fact that there are some things that are supposed to be kept in the house: the lamp, the fireplace, the stove, the fridge, and so on.
Some of us also remember when we were kids that we were supposed to keep our toys, clothes, and whatever else in the same room as we were in.
But what if you don’t want to keep things like that in your house?
Well, then there are ways to make your own fireplace candleholder.
As the name implies, a fireplace candle is a hollow wood-frame that can be made into a candle holder.
It is made from wood that has been dried and ground into a fine powder.
It also comes in different sizes.
You can buy an ordinary candle holder for around Rs 4,000.
It does not have any heating element inside and can be used for cooking.
But a small size, called a fireplace box, has a heating element, a chimney, and a handle for holding the candle in place.
It comes in a variety of shapes, colors, and styles.
The most common kind is the ‘Paneer’ (Paneela) candle holder that comes in two sizes: an ordinary one and a large one.
A small candle holder can be bought for around $100.
The ‘Candyman’ candle holder, which comes in the size of a small lamp and comes with a handle, is a popular item in Indian homes.
The ‘Lampstick’ candleholder has an attractive wooden handle with a small, square hole in the centre, which is for holding your candle in the right position.
“The candle holder is not just a decoration.
It can also serve as a lighting for the room.
In fact, it can be a very handy decoration,” says Harish Rao, a product development manager at Rishi-Nagar.
In a study done in 2016, researchers at the Institute of Medical Sciences in Delhi found that around 10 per cent of women in the Indian cities are affected by insomnia due to lack of sleep.
It is estimated that around 50 per cent suffer from daytime fatigue.
These women can also suffer from anxiety and depression, which can affect their mood and quality of life.
It means that women, who are also affected by depression, are particularly susceptible to insomnia.
“Women are also more likely to have a chronic condition such as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, which contributes to their insomnia,” says Dr Anand Rao, director of the Institute for Sleep and Circadian Disorders at the Jawaharlal Nehru National Institute of Health.
The research also found that insomnia is often treated with benzodiazepines, such as Xanax, Valium and others, which are widely available in Indian markets.
However, these drugs can be extremely addictive, and women tend to misuse them.
A study done by the Indian Medical Council of India (IMCO) in 2016 found that women with chronic insomnia, and those who suffer from other mental health problems, tend to abuse benzodiazapines, which have adverse effects on the central nervous system.
“These drugs are a gateway drug for a range of psychological disorders,” says Prof. P. K. Saha, chair of the Department of Neurology and Neuroscience at the Royal Veterinary College of India, in a press release.
To prevent this, people are advised to abstain from benzodaxies.
However, many women do not follow the advice, especially those who are not in a medical setting.
In 2016, a study conducted by the National Institute for Health Research (NIR) found that just 15 per cent people in India use benzodazepam, and it is used in the country as an anti-depressant.
“While the use of benzodaze for the treatment of depression and anxiety has been around for a long time, the overall prescription rate is very low,” says Saha.
He adds that the drug is not recommended for all patients.
“But it can reduce anxiety and stress in some cases, especially in those who have depression or anxiety, as well as anxiety disorders,” he adds.
While benzodazes are effective, it is a dangerous drug.
It causes serious side effects, including heart attacks, respiratory distress and severe blood clots.
“It has no therapeutic benefit in people who are otherwise healthy,” says Rao.
“Some studies suggest that it may even have serious adverse effects for those who do not have depression,” he says.
