Violet Radiance is an Etsy shop run by Lauren in Sterling Heights, MI. Her specialty is homemade all-natural soy scented candles.
You've probably never heard of Sterling Heights, but it's the fourth-largest city in Michigan and just a few miles outside of Detroit. Back in 2006, Money magazine listed it as #19 on its list of the 90 "Best Small Cities" to live in.
As for Lauren and her shop, here's her story:
I have always been a pretty creative person. I could never find a certain craft that suited me though.....until recently. I LOVE candles and one day I decided it would be so cool to be able to make my own to express myself and have an amazing smelling house at the same time. After long hard research I told myself, "I'm going to do it!", and I did. It is a lot of work, but with every individually, hand-poured candle, I can now finally say that I have found a personal hobby that I love and will continue to learn daily. So now here is my hobby that I would love to show off to anyone I can and I can promise you that with every ounce of wax, there is nothing but love and dedication.
Pictured above is the cinnamon chai candle, one of Lauren's great fall fragrances, an all-natural soy candle with no harmful toxins. This fragrance captures the very essence of a warm cup of cinnamon chai tea. Thirsty yet? Infused with natural essential oils, the scent has notes of black tea, sweet vanilla, and warm cinnamon.
My wife loves the cinnamon chai, and in my opinion it's got a pleasant, spicy scent. It's not overpowering. Lauren estimates that the candle will burn for up to 40 hours, which is quite awhile. So far we've burned it maybe five or six hours and it's burning nicely.
I think the pumpkin spice candle is especially festive for the season, and Halloween is right around the corner. We have a couple pumpkins on our front steps and in the living room too. Infused with natural essential oils including cinnamon leaf and nutmeg, the scent is true to fresh pumpkin with delicious notes of sugar and spice. Wouldn't this candle be perfect for your home?
