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…

Friday Favorite: MNK Candle

There is something that is so relaxing and grounding about lighting a candle.  The calm flicker of the flame, the pleasant scent, the sound of it’s crackle —a candle can transform your surroundings. I’ve made candle lighting an evening ritual. After a busy day at work and running around with the kids, it’s a great way to realign myself for a decent nights sleep and let go of the daily stresses.

I’ve found a great line of candles from MNK Candle, which I’ve completely fell in love with. MNK Candle, owned by Megan Kenney, specializes in small batch artisan soy candles. Megan offers a well-rounded candle line with a wide variety of candle scents from an apothecary candles to a traditional mason jar line. There are scents for those who love sweet and flowery and scents for those who are into deep and savory.

I’ve completely fell in love with one of her seasonal Spring scents, Into the Woods. The scent is hard to describe, but complete heaven. It is a mix of sweet wisteria, earthy red wood forest, moss, sandalwood; rounded out sweet amber creating a scent that is both moody and feminine.
