Home Blog: Candle Voyage

 Let's talk a little bit about candles! I never really got into candles until this past year. Candles really do add a nice warmth to the home. TBH I really feel watching Youtube changed the way I felt about candles. I just needed to add them in my life so I can reuse the glass candle jars for my makeup brushes! lol jk..but I will one day clean out a candle jar and reuse it! *Goal*

Candle Voyage is a subscription service of artisan candles based out of Virginia. The vision of Candle Voyage is to make artisan candles more accessible to candle lovers who enjoy variety. The Candle Voyage box is safely doubled boxed. : )
I'm reviewing the November Candle Voyage box.

 I love anything personalized, it just makes you feel like a million bucks. :)
The box was pretty heavy! I couldn't wait to open it up to see what's inside.

It was fun hunting through the box to find the candles.
This is everything I received in my November Candle Voyage box.
The set of red and lime green beeswax candles are made by Marjorie's Candles in Primghar, Iowa.
It's pretty neat to get a box of candles made from different states in the US. It really adds character to the box.
The packing slip lists everything you got in your box.
The smaller "tea light" candles were made by Charming Interiors of Kennebunkport, Maine.
1 set of 2 Brandied Pear tea light candles
1 set of Mango Grapefruit teal light candles
1 set of 2 Maine Balsam tea light candles.

The tea light candles will go perfect with my Glassybaby "Evelyn" candle holder (as seen in my post HERE).

The Crafts by Noel Macintosh Apple Candle looks and feels like a real apple! Totally reminded me of Snow White. The candle was made by Crafts by Noel of Fairfax, Virginia.
This was the prettiest candle from the box. The Jumbo Strawberry Shortcake Scented Cupcake Candle made by Pookaberrys Candle Bakery of Epping, New Hampshire.
The beautiful candle jar is the Aromatherapy "Love" Candle. A romantic blend of playful peach, warm vanilla rose, and black currant. Made by Daft Craft of Sterling, Virginia.

When I was in grade school, I remember my 3rd of 4th grade class visited a candle making "village" in Holland, Michigan. We got to dip our own candles, and watch candle makers carve patterns to make decorative candles. A couple weeks ago, I was watching How It's Made and that same candle "village" I visited as a child was featured on the show! I knew it was so familiar and then at the end they mentioned Holland, Michigan. : ) 

I'll have another candle post up in the near future because I recently discovered new favorite scents, and some amazing new candles. I'm excited to venture into the world of candles.

Let me know if you have any favorites candle scents. ^_^


  1. I love candles! I don't really have many because my hubs is against them. He fears I'm gonna burn down the house. I love fruity scents!

    1. I used to be more against lighting candles because my family was more cautious. Have you heard of Scentsy? They're a great alternative to candles! Merry Christmas!

  2. This is so beautiful candles, A candle is a solid block of wax with an embedded wick, which is lit to provide light, and sometimes heat, and historically as a method of keeping time.

  3. Ooo I love candles! That apple one is adorbs!
