OK, I have to say I might have outdid myself finding the best floral fragrance ever with my all-natural palm wax candles. Jasmine. I came across it by accident, but now feel like it was a message from the universe: Auntie B, you need to share jasmine with the rest of the world.

Not only is the fragrance amazing, the flower/plant (I’m not a horticulturalist) is so diverse. Check out what Wikipedia has to say about it…

Jasmine can be either deciduous (leaves falling in autumn) or evergreen (green all year round), and can be erect, spreading, or climbing shrubs and vines. Their leaves are born, opposite or alternate. They can be simple, trifoliate, or pinnate. The flowers are typically around 2.5 cm (0.98 in) in diameter. They are white or yellow in color, although in rare instances they can be slightly reddish. The flowers are borne in cymose clusters with a minimum of three flowers, though they can also be solitary on the ends of branchlets. Each flower has about four to nine petals, two locules, and one to four ovules. They have two stamens with very short filaments. The bracts are linear or ovate. The calyx is bell-shaped. They are usually very fragrant.  ~ Wikipedia

Did you read that last sentence?  “They are usually very fragrant.”  Yes, yes they are.  And I’ve got that fragrance captured in this lovely set of four votive candles for your enjoyment.


If you’ve experienced a prolonged winter in your area you’ll love this breath of springtime in your home.  If not, well, you’ll still enjoy the fresh fragrance of jasmine.  It’s perfect for any home, in any climate, in any season, anywhere in the world.

The Midwest is being pummeled with tons of snow and high winds of late.  You’d think it was wintertime instead of springtime, or dare I say…Christmastime?

The snowfall has harkened me back to the snowy, cozy days of Christmas.  Perhaps Ebenezer Scrooge’s quote “I shall honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year” is ringing forth in my ears, as we’re over four months into the new year and I’m filled with the Christmas spirit due to the snowy surroundings.

What better light to bring to a cold winter night than a flickering candle scented with peppermint?

You may not be living through the dreadful springtime blizzard that is rushing through my neck of the woods, but peppermint is so much more than a scent of Christmas, candy canes and winter.  The aroma of peppermint has been known to have memory- and alertness-enhancing properties.

Oh, I can’t guarantee alertness and acute memory with the burning of this candle, but it is certainly refreshing and rejuvenating.  No matter what the season, a peppermint-scented candle will bring a lively and enjoyable fragrance to your home.

Peppermint Pillar Candle

The energizing aroma of peppermint and the cheery color of pink all in one fabulous candle! Remember, candles make a great hostess or housewarming gift ~ if you can resist keeping it for yourself! I hand-pour all of my candles in small batches to ensure each one is created to give you hours of candle-burning enjoyment. I use only the best quality paraffin wax and all cotton wicks to provide the cleanest burn possible. Please remember to trim the wick to ¼ inch (.63 cm) before burning. If the flame becomes too large or if smoking occurs extinguish the candle, trim the wick and relight, being careful of the hot wax and wick. Dimensions: 3” (7.62 cm) diameter X 3” (7.62 cm) height Shrink wrapped for maximum fragrance retention.

A Child’s Vision
by Alfred Noyes

Under the sweet-peas I stood
And drew deep breaths, they smelt so good.
Then, with strange enchanted eyes,
I saw them change to butterflies.

Higher than the skylark sings
I saw their fluttering crimson wings
Leave their garden-trellis bare
And fly into the upper air.

Standing in an elfin trance
Through the clouds I saw them glance….
Then I stretched my hands up high
And touched them in the distant sky.

At once the coloured wing came back
From wandering in the zodiac.
Under the sweet-peas I stood
And drew deep breaths. They smelt so good.

Do you love the smell of leather?  When I go to the Minnesota State Fair I visit the Funk and Rose Leather trading post to get some deep breaths full of that rustic, earthy scent.  When I wear my grandma’s vintage leather gloves I have a hard time keeping my hands away from my face to get a noseful of the aroma.  If my car had a leather interior I’d probably decide to live in it rather than my house.

I’ve got a candle at the shop that has a very true leather scent.  If you love the smell of leather as much as I do, this is the candle for you.
