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.

Not too long ago I published a post singing the praises of green and white.

I’d like to say that the combination of green and pink is pretty awesome too.

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.
