Candle light dinner creates a mood so relaxing that you automatically forget about all the things that might be otherwise bothering you in life. You can feel your stress melting away with the mood lighting provided by soothing candles. The human circadian system is dictated by changes in light and it is proven by science that candle light provides the perfect low light for your body to think it is time to relax and that is why you feel so chilled out when there is candlelight dinner going on at your place.The low light from a candle also allows your pupils to really dilate which means you’re more excited. You cannot control your lover’s pupils but you can certainly create a mood in your home which will make them fall even deeper in love with you. Remember, that’s where you get bedroom eyes from!
