I LOVE these candles! The white peach tea is a gorgeous and sweet scent that doesn't overwhelm or overpower the space. I liked the 8 oz so much I decided to go bigger. The quality of the candles are definitely worth the price.

About

Lovely fragrant high quality Soy Candles!

If you were to walk into my house not only would you be greeted by my loving family but by the fresh and floral scent of Gardenia. Continue on to the living room, and you would be surrounded by fragrances of Lavender, Sweet Pea and Honeysuckle Jasmine. Move on to the kitchen, and you would be met by the flavorful scents of Cafecito and Banana Nut Bread. My home is surrounded by an atmosphere of love, and it is the fragrances present within each room that shape the memories I create and add to the layer of unity within my family. I find that fragrance identifies who I am and can change how I feel. They relax me after a busy day and remind me to take things slow, to enjoy the company of those around me and to experience the trip down memory lane that only scents such as “Raspberry Sangria” or “Ocean Breeze” can evoke. 


As a recent early retiree, I found myself ready to fulfill a passion that had been stirring within me for some time. I have always enjoyed having candles throughout my home for the inspiration and relaxation they have provided me with. In fact, I enjoy candles so much that I once had over one hundred and twenty candles throughout my home (thank God for a large home)! Having always wanted to make my own candles, I took a candle making class and "poof,” I was mixing fragrances and pouring scents. With the support of my awesome husband Johnny and my family, after a big leap of faith, "Lavender Apothecary" came to fruition. I am having the time of my life making candles as well as taking care of my young granddaughter and spending time with my teenage granddaughter. My hope is that you will enjoy the fragrances that I lovingly pour and add into my soy candles and that you either reach back and recall that memory or create a new one!

Let's have a scent filled journey together!  💜💜💜

If there are any issues with your delivery please contact our shop and we will be happy to assist in tracking your order. We package our candles very carefully and with lots of care.

Refunds and Exchanges
Our candles are handmade and the nature of soy wax will sometimes have slight variations ( for example: slight frosting like look or slight separations of wax from the jar, slight yellowing may occur as we do not use additives, some pooling of fragrance at top during warm weather). The benefits of using soy wax far out weigh these slight appearance issues. Soy wax has a longer burning time than other waxes and burns clean. Please know that this is completely normal and will not affect your candle or the fragrance at all. Once you begin to burn your candle these variations will go away. However, if for whatever reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase we will be happy to refund the purchase price of the candles. Please contact us and we will do our absolute best to work with you for a positive outcome! We want you to be 100% satisfied and will do what is needed to rectify any issue or possible problem.
Additional policies and FAQs
Candle care: The first time you burn your candle allow a melted wax pool to create throughout the sides of your jar. Never burn your candle longer than 3-4 hours at a time (our 5 ounce jars should not be burned longer than 2-3 hours). Trim wick to 1/4 inch before each burn.

* never leave your candle within the reach of small children!

* never leave your candle unattended! Always burn on a flat surface.

Burn times:

16 ounce approx. 80-85 hours burning time

8 ounce approx. 45-50hours burning time

5 ounce approx. 25 - 30 hours burning time
