Announcement    …....FLOWER POWER for JUNE...…
As gardens burst into bloom and wildflowers color country roads, we're reminded how beautiful June can be. This month, we can't help but be drawn to those gentle floral fragrances and green notes that embody early summer. Check out our new Flower Power listing for the best June scents. Bring the outside in.

………..…...SHOP IN PERSON....……….

………………….ABOUT US...……………….
After an amazing past few years in New Orleans and Gettysburg, PA, our family-run company took a great opportunity in 2018 to permanently land. Returning to our roots in the Mid-Atlantic region, The Bathing Raven is now settled on a historic farm 90 minutes west of Washington, D.C. near Shenandoah National Park. We are in the heart of VA wine and horse country, and handcraft all your products right here! We are a husband and wife team with a true DYI philosophy. From creating our original fragrances, to hand-pouring each candle, to label design, we do it all! We do have a little help from our office assistants - Ollie the parrot, and Frida the dove. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram (@thebathingraven) to see new products, events, and life according to candlemakers!

Thanks so much for being a part of our story.

About

Relatable scents...reimagined.

Happy 2019! We are a husband and wife team living and creating on a historic farm 90 minutes west of Washington, D.C. in the heart of Virginia wine and horse country! We handcraft all our candles and bath products here, and love sharing them at local events in the Mid-Atlantic, as well as with online shoppers around the world.

Making the shift from crafting for family & friends to a full-time company came in 2015. Since then, The Bathing Raven has grown from simple bar soaps to to an extensive, 100% soy wax candle line.

Influenced by travel and life's adventures -including a year in fabulous New Orleans- we strive to create fun, premium products, using only the best quality ingredients. We use dozens of gorgeous fragrances, sourced world-wide, to create scent blends that hopefully evoke memories for you, instead of mysterious ingredients like "tundra moss" and "copal" that have no connection for most people. Sophisticated scents don't have to be foreign. We strive for relatable scents, reimagined. We hope our fragrances either spark a connection to your past, or encourage you to dream of the future.

Please message us with any questions, or to discuss a custom order. We do corporate events, wedding favors, krewe throws, signature fragrances for inns, etc. We also wholesale to boutiques throughout the U.S.

Happy shopping!
-Jennifer & Doug Reynolds
