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.


Price includes shipping within the US only. If you’re outside the US and would like to purchase, please contact me at auntiebswax4u@yahoo.com and I’ll provide an adjusted price.

My Grandma Harriet used to say this about summer, “first is 4th of July, then comes the Minnesota State Fair, then it’s Christmas.” She was so right. Time is flying so fast I never even got a chance to post anything about my 4th of July holiday, and the Minnesota State Fair starts one week from today. Before I can say ho ho ho Christmas will be upon us. But here’s the thing: I have already begun the Christmas candle production for the three upcoming shows I have before Christmas.


You see, when I’m pouring candles in Craftland the aromas waft through the house. And yes, you can find some of these great autumn and winter aromas in some of the candles in my Etsy shop right now. Click on the picture to fly to my shop for details.

How could you be cold in the winter with this bright red, Spiced Cranberry candle burning?

How about a nice berry scent to sweeten up those chilly nights?

I know, it’s still eighty degrees outside, even in Minnesota. But like Grandma Harriet said, Christmas comes right after the Minnesota State Fair as the time flies.

In the melting pot lately there has been a batch of delicious Hot Apple Cider candles, some spicy Clove, Amish Harvest with its cinnamon and dried fruit tones, and some creamy Cappuccino Hazelnut for a good measure. Warm scents for the cold weather that’s coming.

I’m looking forward to those cold nights, but not until after the fair. What could be better than cold nights warmed by a flickering flame and the light aroma of…whatever suits you best?

Keep watching the shop for the candle scents you might love. Auntie B’s Wax is a great place to do some holiday shopping for other people too!

Invigorating Peppermint!
