Inspired by the beauty outside our studio windows, these uniquely scented candles capture the spirit of the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts.
Our new Woodland Candles spring from hilltown hikes and leisurely strolls along forested paths. Apiary celebrates local bee culture and all things wonderful about beeswax. Our Tobacco Scented Candles are a tribute to the valley's heritage and our love of these distinctive barns that dot the landscape.
Each candle is handpoured and arrives beautifully gift boxed with a story card about the woman artisan who made it. To send as a gift, simply add your message in the cart and we'll include a card. Rest assured, pricing information is never included in our packages. Sold individually. Artwork on the labels by local artist and architect, Scott Laidlaw.

-Woodland Walk: No matter where you are in the world, a walk in the woods is a reminder that fresh air and being in nature is invigorating. White cedar and oak are balanced with juniper berry, a hint of clove, and gentle lavender from a nearby meadow.
-Apiary: What is an apiary? A place for honeybees! We blend soy and naturally honey-scented beeswax with herbs and a hint of floral notes to create a candle the bees themselves would love.
-Tobacco Barn: A sophisticated blend of rich tobacco leaves and aged cedar with notes of amber and leather, and a touch of musk, spice and pimento berry essential oils... a great scent for both women and men.
