The House Smells Like Heaven

There's a good reason for that.

Candles.

We've been making candles, and now we've got some properly photographed for you (and on the website, too)!  They a good paraffin that burns really well and they are long lasting, with a good strong scent from top to bottom.  We're doing 9" round pillars with a 3" diameter, 4.5" square pillars that are 3" across, 3" round pillars with a 3" diameter, and the ever-useful votives.

First, the ones we've photographed...


Healing Tea.  These are a really pretty mottled sage green and are scented with Eucalyptus and Green Tea.  Amazing!  These are the favorites of a lot of people who've seen and gotten them, as we've been selling them already at craft shows.


Chocolate Decadence.  Wow, is that an appropriate name for these!  They're a mottled mahogany, and scented with a deep chocolate fudge, vanilla, and hazelnut.  These candles will fool guests into thinking you've been doing some pretty hefty baking... or get the romance going, according to those who say chocolate is an aphrodisiac.


Ocean.  These are a great mottled light aqua and really are great for evoking that crisp, clean ocean scent.  Relaxing and indulgent, they can turn any room into a spa.

While our Autumn Harvest, Lilac, and Cedar are available for purchase, we don't have those photos yet.

Autumn Harvest, as the name suggests, would be perfect for any Thanksgiving table setting, though they're really great any time of year.  In a beautiful mottled red, these candles are scented with crisp apples, warm cinnamon, and a touch of plums, pears, grapes, nuts, and just a bit of caramel.  Really truly amazing.

Lilac is as it sounds, in a pretty pale mottled lavender, these are scented with pure lilac, my favorite flower.  It's just a beautiful light floral.

Our Cedar candles are colored with a beautiful mottled reddish-brown and scented with cedar fragrance oil.  Fresh and woodsy, these are a great relaxing candle without being feminine.  Perfect for that candle-loving guy you know!
