Yes it's been a while since our last blog. We apologize for that. Time to get into the swing of blogging more often.
We recently started making our own handmade candles. You're thinking candle, everyone makes them. That is true, but we wanted something different for our store. We wanted something natural.
So we started researching all the ways to make candles. We knew soy wax is what we wanted to use but didn't want artificial fragrance and dyes. I as many have sensitivity to strong scents and dyes. So I started playing with herbs and essential oils that I use for many other things in my daily life.
After lots of trial runs we've come up with several of our own blends such as lavender sage, pine sage, dragonsblood sage and more. These candles have been so fun to make and the bonus is my house always smells wonderful.
Being able to burn candles in my home is something i enjoy, and now i can as often as i want without intense perfumed fragrance. Soy burns very clean, lasts long and hold the infused scents from essential oils very nicely. The natural herbs add a nice visual touch to the look of the candle.
So if your like me, love candles but can't handle the strong perfumes these might be the right candles for you.
You can find them in our brick and mortar store as well as our online store. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
