Aromatherapy--The Winner!

Thank you all who voted in my poll! I think we have a clear answer to the question. I had a feeling that aromatherapy would win. Speaking of winning...I have a winner for the giveaway. Cindy of Angel Heart Designs has won a 3.5oz aromatherapy candle made with pure essential oils, and my newest product...a bath tea bag! It is a tea bag filled with chamomile, and scented with pure lavender essential oil. Cindy said she liked anything lavender-ish so I'm going to send her the lavender aromatherapy candle.

Chamomile is known for it's anti-inflamotory effects as well as for it's calming effects. And of course lavender oil is known for its ability to de-stress. So how perfect would it be to soak in a tub filled with the essence of chamommile and lavender at the end of a long day! I'm going to be working on getting the new aromatherapy line on my web site. I'll be offering several different types of aromatherapy from lavender to an aromatherapy called passion--just in time for Valentines day!

I'll be offering gift bags that will include a candle and bath tea bags, and then you'll be able to add accessories if you'd like. I could attach a broach to the bow on the outside of the bag, and/or a pair of earrings to the bath tea bag with a coordinating bracelet. I think it's the perfect gift for a friend or for yourself!

New Things Are Coming!

After a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with family, I have had some new inspiration. I've been very busy working on some more "accessories" to "accessorize" my candles. And as always, everything I use to make these new items is vintage, and re-purposed. I've posted a picture to give you a little sneak peak. I'm hoping to have a few items on my website in time for the last shipping date of the gift giving season ;-)

New Antique Jar Candles!

I'd like to introduce my new product line...Antique Jar Candles! They're all different and unique and come with their own doilie! They're beautifully packaged with a doilie covering the lid. When you receive the candle, simply remove the doilie and you now have something to place your candle on! And as with all of my candles, when you burn the candle down to 1/2 an inch simply wash and you now have a beautiful container that you can use for something else, or for display. This would make a great gift for any occasion.

Free Candles!

I know it's hard trying something that you know nothing about, so I'd like to offer free candles to the first 3 people that send me an email asking for a free candle. Just choose from the fragrances listed on my website, and I'll send you a free dessert cup candle. The only thing I ask is that you send a testimonial to either my email address or to my blog. I believe in my candles so much that I know you'll have lots of good things to say about them :-)

Make sure you send me your name and address to and ask for your free candle in the fragrance of your choice!

Tips for burning the dessert cup candles: The first time you burn your candle try to burn it for 3 hours. Soy wax has a memory, and it will only burn as wide as it burned the first time.

Having a bad day? Light a candle!

I have such a passion for high quality, highly scented candles I wanted to share that passion with others. There's something so wonderful about the warmth and joy that a candle can bring to an ordinary, or even a bad day. I've found that different fragrances can change or add to a mood. If you wake up to a cold and gloomy day, light up a homey candle like mulled cider, orange clove tea, or peppermint mocha. If you've had a stressful day, light a candle that reminds you of your favorite vacation spot, or a wonderful lavender scent.
