Green Thumb Not Required


Ah, the sweet smell of fresh flowers, herbs and fruit. But what if you don't have room for a flower garden or a fruit tree? What about if you always over or under water your herb garden? What happens when your house just doesn't get a lot of sun? And what about when you try and try but you just don't have that coveted green thumb? Sigh. And even if you could grow that prize winning dahlia, what happens in the winter when you crave that subtle floral scent wafting through the house, room to room? You're probably not going to import 20 plumeria leis from Hawaii to fulfill your dream.

True, nothing can really replace an honest-to-goodness bouquet of fresh picked flowers or just-cut ripened melon. But, consider the versatility of burning scented soy candles. Soy candles are environmentally friendly and can be placed almost anywhere in any room. They create a beautiful ambiance and the scent can be changed as often as needed or whenever you feel the urge for something different. Soy candles hold their fragrance longer than their paraffin counterparts and burn slower, so they burn longer.

Not all climates are suited to grow mountain heather, jasmine, or honeysuckle. But, soy candles come in those fragrances. Oh, and those 20 plumeria leis from Hawaii? Yes, soy candles come in plumeria, too. Not to mention lavender, clove, apple, peach, cantaloupe and lots of other scents that will make your home smell like the finest English garden or California orchard.

So, whether you have the gift of mastering the garden or you're not so talented with potting soil and mulch, you still can have the sweet smell of flowers, herbs and fruit all year long with soy candles.
