Homesick Candles

Aug 8, 2016

Category: Living

For many of us, we grow up and get older only to leave our beloved hometowns or even home states in pursuit of career opportunities or personal fulfillment. And while there is absolutely nothing wrong with pursuing these goals, it’s always nice to retain some semblance of where we came from, if only to justify where we’re headed.

Homesick Candles works to bring light to this notion, serving as a reminder of our childhood adolescent years, even educating others as to where we grew up. These hand-poured candles, in particular, each feature a variety of home-themed scents, like sweet tea and peaches for Georgia or orange, sea mist, and driftwood for Florida or even honeysuckle and forest floor for Virginia. Typical burn time ranges between 60-80 hours and each candle weighs in at about 13.75 ounces each. Our sense of scent is one of the strongest facilitators of memory, so think of them as subtle reminders of life back home while continuing to embrace life’s winding journey. Currently, 27 out to 50 states are represented, with more to come. Available now for $30. [Purchase]
