New scent - Mysterious (lavender and amber)

New to our Yoga Collection is Mysterious, a custom blend of lavender and amber.

Mysterious - lavender and amber candles

This scent was inspired by a celebrity gifting to Stephanie Drapeau. As a member of The Artisan Group, we have the opportunity to gift items to various celebrities from time to time. When I read that one of her favorite fragrances is lavender and amber, I knew exactly what scent to create for her! I had already been experimenting with the lavender and amber combination, and this gift opportunity pushed this scent to the top of the list.

Combining the fresh, floral fragrance of lavender with the dark and musky scent of amber does not seem a likely combination at first thought. But the blend of the two is .... well, mysterious and very romantic. 

Try Mysterious today!

Burning Your Candles: Tip #6

Recently, we received the following email:

The wick curled back into the candle the first time I lit it. I tried to "scoop" around it but have had no luck. I read your directions that came in the packaging. I did trim the wick before the first time I used it. Was I not supposed to do that?

Thank you, Shannon, for that question! Here is my response:

Candles sent directly from us should be trimmed to the proper wick length when shipped, so you should be ready to light your candle out of the box. My recommendation for you at this point would be to melt your candle on or under a warmer. When the melt pool reaches about 1/4" of an inch, gently pour the melted wax into a safe container such as a coffee or vegetable can. Allow the wax to harden, then burn again according to the tips which were sent to you. Here's a blog post which shows a warmer which could work for this purpose:

The good news is that you can continue to enjoy the fragrance while using a warmer to get your candle "in shape" again. Remember to gently pull the wick into center as the wax hardens - when the color starts to change and the wax becomes gel-like is a good time to start.
