Pioneer Valley Candle

Scent Guide
  • 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.

Tobacco Barn Time Machine!

Having grown up in the Pioneer Valley in the 70's, one of the only summer jobs available for us as teenagers was picking tobacco in the fields or hanging it in the barns. When I light my Tobacco Barn candle from the "Pioneer Valley" collection, it's a total throwback in time! I frequently buy them for friends and family for a sniff of nostalgia, especially for those who've moved away from the land we all loved so dearly as kids. I highly recommend not only the candles but also supporting this amazing company that's doing right by our neighbors in Western Massachusetts and more importantly, women refugees from around the world!

Thank you so much for sharing, Julie! We're so happy to hear that the Pioneer Valley Tobacco Barn candle reminds you of memories from your childhood and the land you grew up in here in Western Massachusetts. We appreciate your support of our mission!

Woodland Walk rocks!

We bought the "Woodland Walk" scent from the Pioneer Valley collection and we absolutely love it. We have four other similarly scented candles, but this one is our favorite out of them all. It really does evoke being out in a forest, walking amongst the trees. We also like the wooden wick, which lends an almost campfire-like quality. Ours was poured by a woman named Madeleine (thank you, Madeleine!) and really, we couldn't be happier with it. We will definitely be getting this candle again in the future. HIGHLY recommended.

Thank you so much for sharing, Tanaya! We're so glad you love the scent and wooden wick of your Woodland Walk candle and that it reminds you of being in a forest walking amongst trees. We appreciate your support of our mission.
