Even More Candle to Love

Cashmere 3 wick -final 1

When we launched our new (and initially limited-edition) holiday triple-wick candles at the end of 2013, they were our biggest candles yet and we knew you’d like them. It quickly became clear, however, that you LOVE them… and we heard you! We are so thrilled to announce the expansion of our large, 3-wick candles with a collection growing even larger for Spring.

The first of our newest 18-ounce candles is the elegant Cashmere candle. With winter holding on a bit longer and Spring on the horizon, nothing warms you up like cashmere. Now you can wrap yourself in this inspired and sophisticated herbal scent. Infused with the warming scent of patchouli, Persian limes and a touch of vanilla, this scent will brighten up any room. Now with an impressive burn time of about 90 hours!

Available for purchase at our California partner, A Beautiful Mess. The triple-wick candles will be up online soon or call in to reserve yours now (818.874.9092).

Stay tuned for our next big candle release!

Thawing After the Polar Vortex Deep Freeze

Luckily, some of our largest candles are now on sale to help warm you up, wherever you are!

Our take on Winter is a divine blend of cedar spruce and mint topped off with hints of cranberries and cinnamon- a best seller year after year. And can I tell you a secret? It’s now discounted over on orangeandpear.com! Scoop one up today and shiver no more.

America the Beautiful

Linnea’s Lights is an American company through and through so like most of you, we’re beyond excited for the upcoming Olympics and filled with pride for our country.

It’s so awe-inspiring to watch these skilled athletes who have trained their whole lives hoping for a chance at victory. Personally, my favorite summer events to watch are track & field, swimming and gymnastics. I also love seeing the kids cheer on their favorite athletes and remember back to when I was young and how the Winter Olympics Figure Skating events inspired me to take up lessons at the local rink.

The games have become so much more that just an athletic event. The Opening Ceremony is a true spectacle and I never know what to expect. The games are also a source of pride and community, something our team at Linnea’s Lights relates to completely. For the next few weeks, you’ll find me wearing my red, white, and blue around the studio proudly!

What’s your favorite sport to watch during the Olympics?

Holiday sneak peek

‘Tis the season once again and the Linnea’s Lights studio is neck deep in Holiday packing, shipping and mixing! We thought it would be fun to give you a peek behind the scenes at some of the madness. As you can see, everything is packed lovingly by hand here in Indiana and the candles (including Forest Fir, Fireside and Winter, along with the wonderful gift set complete with all three) are ready to arrive at your door.

As the seasonal stress-levels rise, I always think that there’s nothing better than a candle to help “keep calm and carry on.” So get a jump on the holiday cheer and spread some of our wonderful new collection all throughout the house. And while you’re at it, why not stock up on some of your favorites and gift them to friends? Everyone can use a little more merry to go around, don’t you agree?

Winter

With winter just around the corner, we’re feeling inspired by the brisk days ahead & looking forward to the first snowfall. We never can get enough of that feeling when the chill hits your lungs as you breathe in that cold, fresh air and the excitement that comes from feeling alive. I welcome snow-days with the family, drinking cocoa by the fire and building snowmen on the snow covered lawn. Burn this candle to warm your loved ones and to inspire the quiet excitement of freshly fallen snow.

Visit AshBlue to catch the excitement.

Lasting 7 months, the Swedish winter is the darkest time of the year. Inspired by cozy fires during those long winter months, Lynn wanted to a way to revisit that feeling of warmth and the great outdoors with its fresh greenery & berries. Recreate the experience in your own home while enjoying a warming beverage and telling stories around the hearth.
