What is a home without a GREAT smelling candle?! Personally, I love a candle burning right next to my bubble bath while I have my nose stuck in whatever book I am reading at that particular time. I guess something about it is just relaxing. In my home, I probably have at least two to three candles burning at some point throughout the day! Needless to say, this gal loves a good smelling candle and in a wide variety of fragrances. So, if you did not know. Well, now you know! Haha.
However, this one particular fragrance, Eau de Laveau Roses and Clove, has to be one of my top favorites at the moment!!! Not only is it delightful to smell throughout your home, but it is a soy candle that was hand poured and made right here in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana by Jessica Broussard. She owns a candle line known as Mad Darling. Not only are her candles amazing, but so is she! I not only love the fact that her candles are eco-friendly, but I also love that all of her candles’ names are New Orleans inspired!
So, you might ask. Why buy soy candles? Well, soy is longer-lasting and cleaner-burning than paraffin. I am really particular about the types of candles I burn in my family’s home. So, burning a soy candle means having a longer burning candle with no carbon soot on your walls, ceilings, and no toxins being thrown into the air that you and your family breathe. The soy is renewable and most importantly, biodegradable unlike petroleum-based paraffin. Oh, and it is also eco-friendly.. because she not only uses 100% soy wax, but she also uses wicks that are 100% cotton!
If you have never heard of her candles, then be sure to follow the link below. And if you are not a huge fan of roses, I also recommend trying out another one of her fabulous scents like Lakeview Lover, Uptown Heiress, or Marigny Mistress. Enjoy!
