New Candles cooling now...

So tis the season for Yule/Christmas themed candles :) All my candles are made in small batches, not mass produced. I try to use as much natural materials as I can. I rarely use paraffin but when I do I try to use premium quality paraffin which burns cleaner than the lower quality wax. I use essential oils whenever possible unless I cannot find the scent I need after searching every source. My next batch will be Jar candles only, since I'm now out of votive holders. Photos of the actual candles will be available after they cool!

Yule Spice - one of the first oil blends I ever created - Frankinscense, Myrrh, Orange, Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg, and Tonka bean for a hint of a vanilla scent - 100% Essential oils in natural palm wax. 3 glass votives available now.

Evergreen - Rosemary and Pine essential oils. In white soy wax. 1 8oz jar candle available now.

Rosemary Romance - Rosemary and Patchouli essential oils - light brown soy wax - 2 jar candles, 1 votive available now.

Wassail - essential oil and fragrance oils - apple, spices, cloven orange, cranberry vanilla. Cranberry Orange colored soy wax. 2 votives, 1 jar available.

Winter Mint - peppermint, wintergreen essential oils and vanilla fragrance oil. Red soy wax. 1 jar, one large votive available. I intended this batch to be pink but it looks like it will cool darker than I hoped. The next batch may be light blue.

It's getting that time of year again!
I think I've put more into this year's dolls than ever.
I do also have some smaller Yule spirits I will work on probably tomorrow and a Yule candle series ;)

Last Year's Yule Spirit "Evergreen" is still available as well.

I will be reducing her price on etsy since she is last year's creation and I'm trying to make room on my shelves for all my new creations!
