In this blog, I'm going to tell you the truth about candles. There's a lot of misinformation out there, so it's important that we get this right.

You’ll find no-nonsense candle facts in this blog. I research first and then form my own opinions. I’ll tell you the simple truth always because I'm just a small-town girl running a small business, and the truth is the only way a small business will thrive. And I love candles. I love making them, burning them, selling them, and helping others learn about them.
