Tempting Treats ft. Lighten Up Shoppe

I am obsessed with candles.  Take me in a store that happens to have a candle section and sooner or later, that's where I will end up.  I love exploring new brands and scents that I would never come across in my local stores.  That's why I was so excited when I discovered Lighten Up Shoppe.  Their candles are made of soy wax, have wood wicks, and are scented with fragrance oils and essential oils for the ultimate calming atmosphere.

The first candle I've been enjoying, for obvious reasons, is Christmas Tree!  This candle gives the rich scent of a real Christmas tree without having to deal with the clean-up!  It does not have a fake pine scent that overwhelms as many candles of this nature tend to have.  It's a subtle, yet comforting scent that brings warmth wherever it is placed.

Cinnamon Apple is true to its name with the comforting spice of cinnamon and the sweet finish of a fresh apple.  It's not overly sweet where you'd get an apple pie scent from it, but a very welcoming, universally appealing scent that can be enjoyed throughout this season.  I love almost any food inspired candle that makes me think of baking, so this was definitely at the top of my list when I started burning candles at our new house.  Love this one!

This may not be the perfect time to bring up warmer weather, as winter has only just begun, but this candle just radiates spring.  This scent of sweet, ripe honeydew and juicy pears is so spot on I can't believe it.  I would go as far as to describe the scent as "juicy" if that even makes sense!  This one definitely has my mouth watering and craving fresh fruit and the slightly warmer breeze of spring.  All in due time!

The candles featured above are the 4 oz. sizes but you can also choose from 8 or 16 oz. candles.  Each candle is hand poured in a glass jar with a secure lid and topped with decorative tape for a unique touch.  They make beautiful gifts and look very sleek out on a counter or wherever you choose to put them!  I've kept mine out in my kitchen for a more cozy, homey feel.  Be sure to check out the Lighten Up Shoppe's entire collection and check back for seasonal scents!
