Candle Addict finds the Perfect, Pretty, Luxe, 100% Soy Candle

I burn candles every day. Morning time, afternoon and evening.  Especially when I’m working.  I always ask for them for Christmas because they are so expensive.  They burn down so fast, I tend to run out.  I went to a sweet boutique in my area to look for candles.  I found beautiful ones.  With a price tag of $45 a candle!

About 8 years ago I stumbled upon the best candle I have ever owned.  I purchased it at a high end boutique on a whim.  I knew I loved this candle right away for two main reasons.  I loved the glass jar.  It was so pretty, heavy and it looked fantastic on my table.  And, I loved LOVED the smell.  It had a more modern scent and not to sweet or perfumey.  At that point, I never looked elsewhere again. I continued to purchase my favorite candle for 8 years. I purchased their Holiday scents and a variety of their other scents.  As the years went on, I would burn candles I received as gifts.  But, nothing ever compared to my favorite.

Then, one day, the boutique I went to stopped carrying my favorite candle!  I asked and asked but they never gave me a reason as to WHY they stopped selling the best candle on the market as far as I was concerned.  They offered other very nice options, but none of them had the special quality of my favorite one.

When Milk + Honeys was formed, I knew the first thing I wanted to do is find that candle maker.  I hunted and looked and I finally found them!  These candles are American Made in the beautiful woods of Arkansas by a fantastic family who knows their business.  They spent years perfecting their recipes.  They are professional, smart and absolute candle experts.  We have worked closely together to develop my line of candles to offer to folks who love candles.  I’m excited to offer my line of 100% Soy Candles.

So, Why Soy Candles?

There are distinct benefits to burning 100% Soy Candles.  First, they burn cleaner.  NO toxins, NO carcinogens, NO pollutants are created which means it’s less likely to trigger allergies. No soot created that you get from a paraffin candle. Second, they last longer!  Soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle.  Our 150z candle has a burn time of 60 hours!

The Jar

The shape of this container, with the perfected recipe and 3 wicks, allows this candle to burn evenly to the bottom.  I always feel frustrated when I have a pretty candle and it’s stuck in the middle and won’t burn further because it’s uneven.  It is a heavy glass jar, so we worked hard to find the right packaging so it would arrive to our customers in perfect condition. It is approximately 4″ x 4″ and will fit in any room with traditional, modern, simple or luxury decor.  Feast your eyes on this pretty thing.

I feel selfishly excited that I have this line of candles to offer folks and use myself.  I worked with my supplier very hard to get things where I can offer this addictive candle at such a competitive price.  I hope you get a chance to try one.  They are lovely. I hope the sparkle and twinkle in the corner of your eye gives you peace and sense of ease.  Your space will instantly be inviting when you are expecting your friends in your home.  If you do try one, tell me what you thought!

Sing Baby – A Little First Year Support For New Mommies and Daddies

I remember going back to work after my first child was born.  Every day I rushed home to be with her; I got two speeding tickets that year in my hurry home. I parented with the skills I had and did my best.  Then one day, I was giving her a bath, trying to remember songs from my childhood to sing to her. I could only remember a few basic songs, and even those were rusty.  I decided then and there to immerse myself in parenting books and child development books to get my mind around what I was supposed to do with this perfect little creature.

Of course, if you look into it, singing to your baby has incredible benefits far beyond just bonding.  Even if you sound like a frog, which I do, it’s between you and your baby.  Do it.  And, do it all the time.

I finally figured out which songs I wanted to sing, but it was a giant pain. Holding the book and giving her a bath at the same time.  Changing her diaper and trying something new.  It was not smooth nor easy.  I knew then and there I wanted something cute to slap to the wall to help me out a little!

That was the origin of these adorable Lullaby Wall Stickers.  I think every first time parent would love the extra support during such an overwhelming,  world shaking, special time.
