Just as in nature the flora and fauna seem to undergo a rebirth each Spring, so too do we crave a seasonal reawakening as the days grow longer. To celebrate the season of renewal, Linnea’s Lights has released three new scents for spring. The first I’d love to introduce you to is our new Persian Lime candle.

Bright and effervescent, this candle blends tart lime with crisp grapefruit and rich notes of vetiver. Combining natural soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks, and pure scents, Linnea’s Lights clean-burning candles are carefully hand-poured in small batches.

- Soy wax, fragrance oil, cotton wick, glass
- Double wick
- Scent: Persian Lime
- 9 oz.
- Handmade in the USA

Introducing the new Grapefruit candle

One goal I set for myself in 2013 was to be more active. I’ve been setting aside time to fit in some yoga, go for long walks, and ride bikes with the kids when the weather permits. One activity I’ve been hearing a lot about is SoulCycle which apparently has a cult following in NYC, though it isn’t yet available here in Indiana. Have any of you tried it?

Besides the rigorous workout, I love how they incorporate candles into their workouts as an energizing tool and thought I’d bring some of that into my own at-home sessions. Our new Grapefruit candle is perfect for people who workout at home and want to set a motivational mood, or for people who just like the inviting scent of a citrus candle. A beguiling scent, this grapefruit candle offers a fresh infusion of citrus with spicy bottom notes of ginger and green wood. Would you incorporate candles into your workouts? I’ve really been enjoying it!

Mimosa… not just a drink

We were thrilled about yesterday’s  NylonMag.com feature on our Mimosa candle. They said it perfectly when they said ~

“Mimosas make cameos at weekend brunches and lazy days lounging in the park, but what about your bedside table?”

We agree our Mimosa candle is perfection for your bedside table or to set the mood for a weekend brunch.

Lemon Verbena

We love getting our hands dirty with a little gardening. Lynn instilled this love in me and we agree that the beauty of a garden can lift our spirits any day. Plus, growing our own herbs has lent an innovative spirit to our home cooking. Lemon Verbena is a mainstay in our family gardens and is also Lynn’s favorite herb. This powerfully scented citrus infused herb is one of the most versatile and brilliant plants ever known.  Used to make teas, and oils it is also used on compresses to reduce swelling.  This bright and elegant aroma purifies while at the same brightening any space with its strong citrus finish.

Available in-store from our friends at Pamela Lerner Antiques.

Yuzu

Lynn and I are both drawn to the vibrant and powerful flavors of the Yuzu. Originally from Tibet, the Yuzu grows on an evergreen tree that can take up to eighteen years before producing any fruit. The intense citrus flavor and medicinal qualities of the fruit have made it popular all over the world. This candle smells deliciously of the luscious Japanese grapefruit, exotic fruits & watery greens. Tart and powerful, the Yuzu inspires health and energy.

Take a trip to Springfield, IL, and pick up Yuzu candles from The Wardrobe.
