Description From Prosperity Candle
Inspired by the beauty of the Pioneer Valley outside our studio windows in western Massachusetts, these distinctive candles capture a piece of where we live.
Tobacco Barn Candle: Born of our love affair with the weather-worn tobacco barns that dot our landscape, this candle harks back to a time when tobacco leaf was one of the Pioneer Valley's most abundant crops. The scent is a sophisticated blend of rich tobacco leaves and aged cedar with notes of amber and leather, and a touch of musk, spice and pimento berry essential oils... a great scent for both women and men.
Apiary Candle: This unique candle is a tribute to the beekeepers here and everywhere and who nurture bee culture so that our fruits, vegetables and flowers continue to thrive. We blend bee, soy and a touch of coconut waxes with earthy and refreshing herbal scents - on top of the natural note of honey - to create this wonderfully scented candle.
Woodland Walk Candle: We love exploring the woods and hills around us, especially with our rescued dog Riley. This candle captures those walks perfectly. White cedar and oak are balanced with juniper berry, a hint of clove, and gentle lavender from a nearby meadow.
With amber glass and wood wick, each Pioneer Valley candle is 7 oz and burns approximately 40 hours. Soy blend, easily recycled when finished. Click on the candle details tab above for more information.
