Feast your eyes and sense of smell on Earth Sea and Sky Candles, an Etsy shop run by Lynlea (or Lynn as she also goes by). Lynn is a CPA accountant by day and a candle maker by night. As most of us do, she needs a creative release and started making candles a few years ago.
Lynn loved the way her home smelled every time she made and burned candles, and the different fragrances were fun to give to friends and family. She truly enjoys the experience of making candles and has opened her Etsy shop to support the addiction!
|Autumn Night: Notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, applewood, cedar|
Most candles are still being made in Lynn's kitchen. It reminds me of making candles in my apartment with my then fiance (and now wife) with pots and jars of wax everywhere. If you love something you'll do it anywhere.
Lynn's husband gave her a space in his workshop to pour and store her creations, and the transition into the new space has begun. She tries to keep candle batches small so that each one can have extra attention to detail.
Pictured above is the Autumn Night candle. Isn't that a nice creamy color? In person it looks even more creamy and delicious. Your crisp autumn nights will come to life with the candle's notes of nutmeg and cinnamon layered with applewood and cedar.
|Cinnamon and Vanilla|
I also recommend the Cinnamon and Vanilla candle, as if you don't know what that smells like. Give this a light during the holidays and enjoy.
All of Earth Sea and Sky's candles, including the two above, are made from natural soy wax and have cotton wicks. Lynn has added the max amount of scent allowable for the high-quality soy wax that she uses in the process.
There are lots of other scents too, and one that I find amusing but haven't tried yet is Monkey Farts. It has notes of banana, strawberry, kiwi, grapefruit, and vanilla. Despite farts in the name, the scent is supposed to be wonderful in soaps and candles.
Who wants a candle of their own?! Earth Sea and Sky Candles is graciously offering a 16oz Autumn Night candle and a 16oz Cinnamon & Vanilla candle. TWO lucky Giveaway Guy readers will each win one of them.
