Back in the day when I met my husband (you know, when he was 19) his mom sold Gold Canyon Candles. One way to grease the future mother-in-law is to buy her product so I did what any super poor college student would do. I bought $20 candles.
One of the best ideas of my life! A. It helped build my relationship with my MIL and B. I LOVE the candles.
My MIL stopped selling them years ago and they are still the only candle I buy. They burn slowly, smoothly, and clear to the bottom. The come in various sizes and jars. There are clean scents, fruity scents, floral scents, baking scents ...
I burn my candles seasonally--ginger lime, fizzy pop, orange, strawberry rhubarb pie, and grapefruit are spring/summer scents while Christmas presence, warm apple crisp, pumpkin pie, apple cider and banana bread make me feel all toasty during the fall and winter.
I'm a bit of a candle addict and I have a whole cupboard dedicated to carefully storing my candles.
If you ever come to my home and it smells amazing, please know it is NOT me. It's the candles.
