Cherish the Bees candles Cherish  the Bees “Essential oils and certified fragrance oils are blended to create subtle aromas that whisper rather than shout their presence.” Wilda
Named for the Irish dance “Cherish the Ladies,” these candles are made with wax from local and regional beekeepers—beautifully fragrant, fresh, and free of debris or additives. I amend the wax with an equal amount of organic coconut oil for a consistent, fuss-free flame. Containers are of Spanish recycled glass, wicked with Woodwick © wicks, and capped with cork lids. Net weight: 8 oz; Burn time approximately 30 hours.
SCENTS Sweet Meadow: Luscious combination of wildflowers and new mown hay on an earthy base. Campfire: Wood smoke, burnt marshmallows and crackling cedar wood speak of chilly, companionable nights around the campfire. Misty Garden: Flowers, twigs, and damp earth join their scents to recall a rainy summer day just beginning to clear up at sunset. Jasminder: Think of jasmine and lavender getting together for a cup of tea, each scent complimenting the other like two old friends. Let their combined fragrance remind you to reach out for a moment of peace.
You take a wonderful getaway trip to the Hudson Valley to relax, unwind, and restore your equilibrium. You return home—and memories of that sweet interlude get boxed up and carted off with the speed of lightening. How to make that peaceful feeling stay put or at least be available when you need it? Your nose knows the answer: scent. My Hudson Valley High candles are designed to re-create the aromas of a country getaway, available just a sniff away. SOAP BUTTONS

Comfort Zone candles
SCENTS Basil Faultless: A bracing dose of Basil essential oil backed up with vetiver and sandalwood. Named after BritCom character Basil Faulty (I couldn’t help it). Sod and Soul. A walk through the Irish countryside at daybreak: damp soil, wet grass, and clover blossoms with a hint of peat smoke. Spice Dream: A mixture of clove, cinnamon, cardamom, and vanilla, floated on a bed of musk adds a glow of spicy sweetness to a cozy room. Sweet Solitude: A nostalgic bouquet of plumeria, spent blossoms, and velvet musk topped off with a pinch of artemisia (wormwood). Forever Dawn: The essence of wise, wry, and enduring womanhood: a fusion of neroli, ylang-ylang, rosewood, and oakmoss.
These subtle scents represent happy memories that don’t discriminate between “good” and “bad”. As an arena for experimenting with evocative and unusual aromas, the Comfort Zone line offers limitless possibilities. Here you will find a whiff of the unusual: subtle and evocative but never overbearing.
Designed to love every curve of your body, our button soaps are created for a luxuriously decadent experience. Easy to grip, our soap buttons follow the curve of your body without slipping out of your hands and getting lost at the bottom of the tub.
Yes, that’s a candle, in a real oriental “china” bowl, plus matching spoon, complete with the “rice-grain” windows that let the candle light pass through. An outer shell of three thin layers of a hard candle wax is tinted to various degrees to give the rice effect. The core is made of a softer white wax. As the candle burns, the core feeds the wick and lights the shell from the inside. Glorious.

SCENTS Plain: Just as is; natural fragrance for a cozy corner. Field Honey: Natural aroma enhanced with scent of wildflower honey. Orange Clove: Essential Oils of orange and clove combine for a touch of evening delight. White Chocolate: Everything you crave wrapped up in the aroma of white chocolate from hunks of luscious, creamy cocoa butter. Reputed to be non-fattening. Spike Lavender: Not your grandmother’s lavender; more like lavender in a spiked hairdo. Floral notes floating on a pungent base deliver a nice “punch” to this classic scent.
Wonderful accompaniments to a romantic dinner for two. We also offer sets of 8, for dinner parties, each guest having his or her own candle. Candles can be bought with the bowl, or by themselves as bowl refills, Shaun’s Candle Foundry / Candle detalls

Handmade items that add character to your home BRINGING warmth and comfort INto your life
Have you forgotten how to day dream? Perhaps you need some help. Here it is. An entirely new kind of candle that burns not downwards, but outwards. Every 7 or 8 minutes, a new pattern emerges, a new focus for your gaze. Care to dream?
Here's a new way to spend time: gazing into a candle flame. It can be mesmerizing. Let your mind wander-- that's OK.  Share the experience: be silent, together, each absorbed in his or her thoughts. Thoughts, perhaps, to share afterwards. 3 inches across. More information.
