For The Candle Obsessed

I’ve said it a zillion times before, but I am OBSESSED with candles. I always have been and I probably always will be. To me, there’s just something so comforting about having a candle burning in my home. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s almost therapeutic in a way. It’s like, the house can be a mess or the kitchen can be overflowing with dishes, but if I have a candle going things just feel a little better. It’s a weird, magical phenomenon that I don’t question. Anyway, I know a lot of you love candles as much as I do, so I thought it would be fun to share some new things I’ve been loving lately in the candle world!

First up, I’ve been obsessing over burning two different scents at the same time. Have you ever tried burning two candles together? This is serious question my friends. If you haven’t, you definitely should give it a go–it’s SO good! Antique Candle Co has these new discounted candle bundles that I’ve been loving. My favorite combo right now is Sweet Lemon and Clean Cotton. Burning these two together is like a fresh, lemony heaven and it’s definitely my favorite combo for spring and summer.

Mini Candle Sample Packs

Next up, I’ve been loving these sample packs, which have four little mini candles. This is the perfect way to try out four different scents without purchasing a full size candle. I think this is a genius idea! There are a few different options and I just got the Plant Lady box. I LOVE it.

This Plant Lady pack has the scents Wildflowers, Lavender, Back Roads, and Fresh Cut Herbs–all of which are great for summer.

New Summer Scent: Georgia Peach

Lastly, I can’t share this post without mentioning the new scent at Antique Candle Co, which is Georgia Peach. I’ve been hearing a lot about this candle for a while now and I finally got my hands on it. It’s such a soft, sweet scent that is really refreshing. It’s very light and airy, almost like you’re walking through a peach orchard on a warm, sunny day. I love it and it’s exactly the kind of scent I want in my home for summer.

This Georgia Peach scent also comes in bundles now too, so if you’re really candle obsessed you might want to check those out to save a little moolah. Every little bit helps, right?! Right. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading about all of the new candle loveliness I’ve been enjoying lately. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today!

    Good Morning,
    I too love candles!!!! I started burning two of them together in the same room about a month ago. I started with one pineapple and one coconut…I can not tell you how it makes me feel I am on vacation without leaving my living room!!!! I will try other combos thru out my house as we move forward into summer.
    Have a blessed day

    • I love candles too Sarah. Winter, fall, spring and summer I have to have a candle buring. Love love them. I have visited to purchase from candleworks because the price is a bit out of my comfort zone. The packs sound like the ticket for me. The Georgia peach sounds heavenly! Thanks Sarah.xoxox ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  2. Good morning from chilly New England!
    Thought I would share a store with you that sells farmhouse style furniture and decor.
    The store is Christmas Tree Shop and began on Cape Cod, MA. There are a number of them throughout New England and it is one of my favorite places to shop. They have recently added their Grainhouse line which you might like. The store carries so many things! We have bought two fabric headboards at $99.00 each!
    Check out their website as it is possible to purchase on line.
    It is Christmas Tree Shop. com. The name is deceiving as it sells everything!!
    Hope you check it out! Might open up a whole new world!!

    So I love candles as well, but I HATE how they can be so expensive! Do these candles last a long time ?

      Yes! They last a very long time. I think they have 60-70 hours of burn time!

  6. Hi Sarah, I to am a candle lover. When my nest was full, as soon as the sunset I lit candles. It seemed to calm the household and get the children ready for be. In fact on Christmas Eve I would light a candle in each of my children’s rooms and the twinkle would calm their excitement. Crazy to share I know! Right?
    I always love your content. Have a awesome day!
