Shine Brighter with SamaraScents This Holiday Season

I love to use candles around the holidays. Candles are decorative, making your home smell aromatic and welcoming. They are festive and bright.

I tried two of the holiday favorite candles by SamaraScents.

The most important thing to me is to use something that is non-toxic and safe.  Once I used a candle that left soot all over my ceiling.  I wonder what was in that candle.

What I loved about SamaraScents (besides it being a women-owned business) is that all the candles are made with kosher-certified soy wax and non-toxic fragrance oils.  They use natural wax as it is non-toxic, biodegradable, and clean burning.  The candles are paraben & phthalate free and vegan-friendly.  They are made in small batches and hand-poured. A bonus is that they use glass jars and they smell amazing!

The Sugar Plum smells sweet.  The black cherry and plum combination is great!  The Winter Wonderland has a more woody smell and would be great over your mantle.   Both come with the same great scent in a wax melt version.

What are wax melts?

Wax melts are basically wickless candles.  When you place the wax melts in a wax warming tool (electric or with a tealight) and it starts to melt, the pleasant fragrance from the candle is released.
