I’ve always loved tropical destinations such as Bora Bora, The Maldives, Saint Lucia, and Curaçao. The smaller the island, the more enticing it seems to be to me! I really want to own a catamaran one day and just sail the ocean visiting one Archepilogo island after another. Life at sea! Maybe one day…
When I was 4 years old, my mom took my 2 older brothers and me to Hawaii to stay with a good friend for a month. While I was very young, I still remember sitting on the stage with the Hula Dancers and watching the guys twirling the flaming batons! I also remember the smell of orchids and rain. Oh, and we also stopped at Disneyland!
This candle was created to give you the feeling that I get when I smell Orchids, pineapples, and saltwater. I hope you picture yourself laying on a beach right at sunset with a Mai Tai in your hand singing “Tiny Bubbles”. Ke aloha!
Every candle scent I make has a special meaning to me and I hope you love these candles as much as I love making them.
If you want your candle to last longer, trim the wick to 1/4” before every burn, and keep it lit for 3-4 hours at a time. This really helps to extend the life of your candle.
Every candle is handmade with love by me in Melissa, Texas. Because all my candles are handmade, they may have some slight imperfections such as minor discoloration of the wax, a slightly off-centered label, tiny markings on the outside of the jar, etc. None of these will impact the quality of the candle.
*With proper use (I.e. trimming the wicks in between each burn and not burning for more than 4 hours at a time)
