Maker’s Monday: Dandelion Wishes Candle Co.

It’s Maker’s Monday time, my favorite day of the week! Monday’s on House Fenway I get the oppurtunity to share another maker’s wonderful shop, amazing talent and product. As the weeks go on I have come to the realization of how important it is to shop small, support local and help empower others to do the same. Buying from a small business helps support someone else’s dream. The product you receive is unique. Your purchase has been created with such incredible thought and passion —something you rarely if ever receive from a “Big Box” store purchase. So with that thought (as I jump down from my soap box), I want to introduce to you this week’s amazing maker, Dandelion Wishes Candle Co.

Meet Dandelion Wishes Candle Co.

When Fall arrives it’s candle burning season in our house! Who doesn’t like the smell of fresh baked Coffee Crumb Cake or Hot Apple Cider in the house? (even better, without having to turn on the oven, dirty the kitchen or wash a dish!) Candles for Dandelion Wishes do just that — make your house smell amazing. Their small batch candles and wax melts are 100% soy-based, which means they burn clean and contain no toxins or  pollutants. These hand-poured candles and melts are offered in a wide range scents, here are some of the my seasonal favorites…

Sweater Weather: A strong warm scent that fills your space with notes of cinnamon, buttercream. vanilla, and a tiny hint of brown sugar. A perfect cold weather scent to make your space feel warm and cozy!

Fall Essential Oil Diffuser Recipes

One of my favorite things about the Fall are the warm, inviting smells. Bring on the pumpkin, the spice and everything nice! I have to admit that I’m a HUGE candle lover, but I’ve come to love Young Living essential oils for their therapeutic properties and also for diffusing. Not only does my house smell amazing, but by using essential oils you are avoiding all of those toxic chemicals that come with store bought candles and room sprays.

Here are a handful of my favorite diffuser recipes for this upcoming Fall season. Fill your house with these wonderful smells and enjoy every moment of this crisp Fall season!

Recipe: Essential Oil Veggie Wash

Essential Oil Veggie Wash

I’ve started introducing essential oils into my daily routine in hopes of not having to use toxic and/or unhealthy products, such as chemical cleaners and beauty products. Cause all of that man-made stuff just can’t be good for you, right? I’ve even substituted some of my common OTC medications with blends of essential oils, like peppermint and copaiba oil for headaches. (Love it and it works so great!)

I want to share with you a quick and easy recipe, essential oil veggie spray. I mix up this all-natural concoction in a glass spray bottle and spray down all my produce and rinse. It’s inexpensive to make, easy to keep on hand and will help protect you from all of those harmful pests and germs that make you sick.
