Continuing with our Winter’s Light Series (read about it here), today I am introducing our next Soy Candle fragrance…. Pumpkin Pie!
Pumpkin Pie is hand-down our best seller for the autumn season, but also remains consistently popular year-round. This pumpkin pie fragrance is buttery, butterscotch-y, and very VERY fragrant! NOT a spiced fragrance, this scent mimics the pie itself rather than the spices – think pumpkin custard, strong and buttery, with notes of ginger and nutmeg. When we had our physical storefront, we never bothered displaying these candles. People would walk in the door and instantly ask for whatever that delicious smell was, so we just left these on the counter – we’d go through an entire batch of them per day some months!
If you didn’t catch the earlier post explaining all about our hand-poured soy candles, here is a recap:
We have been making these for quite a few years now, hand-pouring them in beautiful Union, WA on Hood Canal. We use 100% soy wax, not a wax blend. Why soy? Oh so many reasons. First off, it makes a wonderful candle. The wax burns at a lower temperature, so you get a longer burn time with soy over paraffin. It will also withstand a heavier load of fragrance oil, so they are very highly scented. We’ve had a single votive candle sitting in our car as an air freshener for going on 5 years now, and it still smells wonderful! Soy is grown right here in America, so by choosing soy you are supporting American farmers, not to mention using a renewable resource, as paraffin is a petroleum product and not renewable. If that isn’t enough, you can remove any leftover wax residue in your candles cups with soap and water! What’s not to love here?
Currently, we are pouring standard-size votives, tealights, and an 8 ounce jar. We do not use dyes in our wax, so the naturally creamy white color of the wax won’t compete with whatever your decorating palette you may have. The votives fit in a standard-sized votive cup and will burn 10-15+ hours depending on how long it burns each time you light it (seems to burn longer overall if you keep it lit for a long time). Tealights come in a clear plastic candle cup which can be placed out by themselves, or within larger hurricane candle holders or jars. One tiny tealight will scent a whole room, and burn for about 6 hours!
Our jar candles have a classy, vintage-style look with their amber glass and black lids, reminiscent of antique apothecary containers. Again, total burn time depends on how you light it, but our test candles burn for at least 70 hours (our tests burn on average 75-80 hours, but we say 70 to play it safe!). Once you’ve burned the candle, the glass jar and lid are reusable for home storage! Use for craft storage, cotton balls, herbs, vitamins, oil blends or creams, flavored sauces, bath salts, notions – whatever! If you don’t want to reuse the jar, then please recycle. :)
Pumpkin Pie tealights, votives, and jars are in stock now. Tune in tomorrow for the last fragrance! :)
