I am a total sucker for candles! Our home is filled with candles.... I have at least one in every room but I have found some new favorites. We have a great store, here in Lexington, called the "Gift Box". I stopped in the other day to look at some of their Christmas decorations and of course found myself standing in front of 50 different scented candles,made by The Candleberry Co. I smelled them all...I'm being serious! I went down the row and smelled each one and they were all so fragrant and "homey". I fell in love with so many of them but narrowed my choice down to two. "Vanilla Crumb Cake" and "Home for the Holidays" (which is burning right now, as I write, and it is divine). These are pretty affordable and you can find them even cheaper online.
Candles are always so welcoming when guests visit and great to use when you just want to relax. This company has a scent for everyone!!
My mom surprised me with a little "Halloween treat" a few weeks ago and gave me a Scentsy. I had never heard of these before but it is a wickless candle. You get your Scentsy ( which is what you melt the wax in) and just flip the switch and you're ready to go. The wax melts and slowly releases the scent....my favorite is Mochadoodle. The wax never gets hot. You can, literally, stick your finger in the wax and it won't burn you. I know this because my mom showed me....I didn't believe her so she proved me wrong (mom's always right)! This is great if you have kids or pets and they have a TON of scents to choose from. These are totally affordable and last so much longer than a usual candle because you can keep re-using the wax. Scentsy's are great for gifts and they have a lot of designs for the upcoming Holiday season as well as designs for everyday use. Just go to their website and take a look! The picture below is my pumpkin treat, from my mom, and I'm so glad she introduced me to these.
I'm looking forward to getting my Winter Scentsy and setting it out as a decoration!
