I was recently in mountains catching fall colors. I remember walking outside our hotel in Lake Tahoe, taking a deep breath of the air and smelling just pure pine — like I just walked into some small town’s Christmas ornament store. A week later I was in Yosemite curling up in my flannel PJs on the deck of our cabin playing scrabble and I swear the air smelled just like the candle I brought (spice, sandalwood and cashmere).
I can’t imagine a better two candles to burn this holiday season to help you get into the Christmas at the cabin state of mind. I’m so happy to announce my two December Candles Of The Month are by local small business Hazel Candle Co!
I found this candle brand while up in Tahoe. The lobby of the Coachman Hotel has a little shop and there was just one candle left – the Flannel Season scent. As a candle addict, I never ran so fast to check out and take it home! I immediately burned it and let me tell you, I haven’t found a candle with this strong of throw in a LONG time. I can be in our kitchen and smell it in our living room!
The next day I went online and bought another Flannel Season candle and also a California Pine scent. Come December, I love the smell of pine around my (fake) Christmas tree. It really helps to set the mood for me. But it’s so nice to be able to bounce around from a pine scent and the flannel season scent!
All of Hazel Candle Co candles are hand poured in California, and use 100% natural soy wax made from soy beans grown right in the USA. They use no artificial additives, dyes or harmful chemicals and use only the highest quality essential oils and fragrances. Here’s the scent notes of the candles:
