All products are hand-made in small batches, with great care and thoughtful intent."
Lemongrass is my favorite tea to smell and drink so I was scared I’d be disappointed. I was most definitely not. This candle was just as comforting. The packaging was also the best I’ve seen in terms of candle shipping. I didn’t have to throw away a bunch of packing peanuts, bubble wrap, or unnecessary plastic. My only dilemma is that I don’t want to burn through the candle too fast but I already have a few ideas about how to repurpose the glass jar.
I bought this candle a few months ago during the winter. I love lighting this candle in the evening when I am watching a show to unwind or when I am at the table for a journaling/planner session. The scent is clean and reminds me of being outdoors. I look forward to purchasing more candles!
