Summer Lovin' Candles

Happy Independence Day friends!


It’s been a hot summer here in Indiana, but it’s also been a blessing to see so many sunny days!  With all the sunshine and blue skies, I’ve been enjoying some clean and refreshing candles to help keep my home cool and cozy.  We all have our favorite candles for different times of the year, but these are some of our favorite summer lovin’ scents!


Apple Pickin’

The sweet smell of freshly picked apples from the orchard.

You can’t go wrong with Apple Pickin’!  This fragrance is fresh, sweet, crisp, and downright mouth-watering.  This is definitely a favorite this time of year with a mix of spring apple blossoms and fall apple harvest.

“Received a sample of Apple Pickin’ with my very first order and oh my goodness!!  Amazing!!  Just ordered one in preparation for my favorite time of the year! …It most definitely smells like the real thing!” –Hilary (Instagram)


Back Roads

An outdoor, fresh, woody bouquet with top notes of ozone, fresh leafy greens, lemon and apple, combined with bright cedar, jasmine, lavender, violet, and lilac.  Finally, highlighted with a soft musk.

This scent is so nostalgic for me, especially during the warm months!  Back Roads quite literally makes me think of back country roads with its amazing, outdoorsy undertones.  See what I see when I smell this fragrance in Visions of Spring!

Fresh Cut Herbs

A cozy, spicy smell of herbs including basil and fresh spearmint, with hints of floral and apple.

One of our newest fragrances has the perfect blend of fresh and cozy!  If you are a crazy plant lady or know one, this is the perfect candle!  I love having the scent of fresh herbs and spices fill my kitchen in the summer.  It also pairs amazingly with Sweet Lemon!

“Everything I have smelled from your shop is amazing.  BUT, my Fresh Cut Herbs candle is my all-time favorite of any candles I have every smelled.  Ever.” –The Hadden Family (Instagram)


Sage & Citrus

An earthy blend of lemon, lime, and sage.

Clean, smooth, and refreshing.  This candle is definitely one of the best fragrances to use if you want to freshen up your home!  With the perfect combination of spiced herbs to crisp citrus, it is a great scent to enjoy on a breezy summer day.

“Love love love this candle!!  You know how tough it can be to try a new candle scent and hope for the best?  Well…no worries at all with this one!  I’ll be purchasing again!” –Patricia (Instagram)
