New Candles

19 Aug

I’ve been making candles for the pumpkin patch this fall.  I have a variety.

and wax melts.

So far I have: Vanilla Oak, Kentish Rain, Pomegranate, Lavender, Sundrenched Vineyard, Ginger Peach, Nag Champa, Honey and Milk, Harvest Moon, and Pumpkin Spice.  Some of the scents I chose to go with the same or similar scents I have in my soaps.

I have to place another order for wax, so I thought I’d ask what fragrances are your favorites.  Because, you know, if I’m placing an order, I have to try a new scent.

Joining Alphabe-Thursday for the letter N.  N is for New candles and new fragrances.

      Thanks. I was sure to have lavender. It’s such a popular scent.

    We’re simple here at our house, because of allergies. We go for pain vanilla! Your candles are beautiful!

      Believe it or not, I suffer from allergies too. Seems cruel the way I love soaping and making candles and all those great fragrances. 🙂

    Your candles are beautiful! I love all the wonderful smells but my husband doesn’t.

    • Teresa August 20, 2015 at 12:10 pm #

      Thanks. The fragrances can be overpowering, so I understand your husband’s sentiments.

    Pretty candles. I like ginger peach, but recently enjoyed the scent of a fig candle.

    • Teresa August 20, 2015 at 12:09 pm #

      I have a cranberry fig in soap. It’s a great fragrance, but one I think of as a Christmas one.

    Coffee or mocha. Mmmmm

    • Teresa August 20, 2015 at 12:11 pm #

      I want to do a Turkish mocha in coffee mugs. I think that would be cute.

    I like most smells but not the real musty ones.

    • Teresa August 20, 2015 at 12:12 pm #

      I’m not sure what you’d consider musty scents, but I’ll keep that in mind.

    Lavender & pine at this time of year! Wax melts; good! Your candles look great!

    • Teresa August 20, 2015 at 12:13 pm #

      I think lavender is popular all the time. Pine certainly is a good fall/winter scent.

    Love those chunk candles — so pretty! I usually go for lavender or chamomile in bath stuff — I can’t do candles 😦
    That honey and milk sounds really nice!

    • Teresa August 20, 2015 at 6:20 pm #

      Oh, chamomile is nice and soothing. Lavender is certainly the winner so far.

      Thanks, Carol. Candlemaking hass been very good for my stress levels.

    Great selection of candles to choose from. Is they are anything like your wonderful soap (I love the cornmeal soap!!!) they will smell fantastic and burn cleanly and long! As always, I adore seeing your little goat family.

    • Teresa August 20, 2015 at 6:20 pm #

      Thanks so much. I’m glad to hear you like the soap.

    I bought a gingerbread candle last fall, and boy did I love it!

    =)

    • Teresa August 21, 2015 at 9:11 pm #

      That sounds wonderful!

    So much natural beauty!
