Went to the potted red geranium today and saw @thenewlocalco candles. Deep waters smells amazing! 😍

I'm the owner, creative hands, and face of my budding small batch soy candle company, The New Local Soy Candles & Wax Melts. They're all hand poured and made from US-grown soy, cotton wicks (byyyyeee metal wicks, we won't miss you), and fragrance oils. Each scent and size combination is tested from first light to last flicker.
.
This month is an amazing month for my company - we've made it through our first year! So, naturally, a lot of celebrating has been going on (including a giveaway privy only to active e-mail subscribers, a close-knit group of awesome folks), a Facebook giveaway, and some other specially planned surprises.
.
I'm really into gardening, cooking, and hopping around thrift stores to up my home's vibe lately. The smells of old books, used furniture, fresh blooms, and new dishes are really serving as inspiration for candles to come. –Nicola Chernetski

Hey! Happy Friday! It’s #fridayintroductions time! 😊 I’m Nicola (on the left). πŸ’πŸΌ This was taken in St. Andrews in Scotland earlier this year. It’s a really beautiful place I highly recommend visiting! What beautiful places have you visited lately? I might be making a list. ☺️ (photo by @katelynkellie )

Gifts for them, and a gift for you, too. Or, maybe it’s the other way around? No judgment here. Just pop that 2 oz lidless candle of your choice in your cart, and enter SMALLBIZCANDLEFREE at checkout. For the wax melt packs, do the same, but enter the code: SMALLBIZWAXMELTFREE instead. Enjoy!

2 oz lidless cuties (err, candles) are the PERFECT size for a nightstand, a small bathroom, a reading nook - they throw just enough scent for small spaces, or offer a great scent throw for those with noses sensitive to strong fragrance. Did I mention they’re cute? In the shop now. 😊

Hey there! Nicola here. I’m second from the left. πŸ‘‹πŸ» On Sunday, some friends and I got together and went for a hike. For #fridayintroductions I thought I’d reiterate how much I am grateful for friendship, nature, Fall, and that feeling when you climb a mountain.✨

CINNAMON + SPICE + SUGAR. Red, mouth-watering, spicy Upon first sniff... and smells like the sugary cinnamon gum you used to chew in middle school. It’s a Fall and Holiday CLASSIC. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»β­οΈ

Well, what would you pick? For me, it's the smell of fresh, crisp air! I also think of the smell of fresh apple - maybe because of the new school year? What about you? Share below! .

TRIM THAT WICK! Before your new candle's first light, use a tape measure and (for ease) a pair of wick trimmers - measure from the wax top next to the wick and clip at 1/4". Why? You don't want a huge flame. It was cool in Hocus Pocus, but it's just not very safe, is it? And for those worried about finding a pair of wick trimmers, don't worry! Scissors work, too. 😊 .

"If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden." - The Secret Garden. When ordering a couple of boxes of cards from @scriptandvine , Genevieve included this special inspirational message in my order. πŸ™ŒπŸ» I love it so much that I pasted it to a painting I made. Happy Fall! πŸπŸ‚ .

Client gifts. Welcome box gifts. Party favors. Thank you gifts. Don't be afraid to get personal with your gifts - there's no better fusion than useful + personal when gifting to those that matter. If you're looking for soy candles or melts to gift, look at the shop! There are some bulk options for lots of gifts, or you can always pick and choose what goes in your cart. ❀️ (Photo by @marykathleenscott ) .

Orange Dreamsicle + Lavanilla are retiring at the end of this month! What does that mean? Basically, these all stars won't be in the line-up on a regular basis. They're giving some of the rookies a fighting chance. It also means that until September 30th, you can include these in your gift orders or specially request any to be made!

If you're looking for a sweet, sugary-scented candle that isn't baked or overwhelming and kiiiiinda brings cotton candy to mind, this is for you! But you kinda need to hurry; there are only 2 wax melt packs, 1 tin, and 1 6 oz left! EVER!

Both of these boxes are filled with gifts! The stories behind these gifts in the purchase notes and conversations were so heart warming! I don't want to spoil the surprise, so I won't tag the awesome ladies behind these sweet gift purchases. BUT YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. πŸ˜‰

Drawing a warm bath, turning on some music (or a Netflix show), turning off the lights, and then lighting a candle is a relaxation ritual I make time for. ✌🏻What about you? What relaxation ritual do you make time for?

EARTHY + PINE + FRESH β€’ We mixed our favorite pine blend with patchouli, and the result is earthy, fresh, a little edgy, deep, and romantic.

THEY'RE LIIIIIVE! πŸ‚πŸ At the beginning of the year, the goal was to get these ready for launching by October. Talk about #goalsetting and #goalgetting πŸ™ŒπŸ» So, today - THEY'RE IN THE SHOP. A month early! Now you you know! πŸ˜‰

FRESH + FLORAL: This soft, sensual, and wild hyacinth is rejuvenating. Like someone just took a shower. Like your hair is almost dry, but you can still smell the shampoo and conditioner. Like you stopped to smell a tiny flower during your walk. What scent rejuvenates you? (Image by @hypimages )

FRESH + APPLE. Not cinnamon apple. Not baked apples. Not apple blossom. Not apple crisp. Crisp apple. Do you melt it on its own, or pair it with another scent? 🍏

Gifts: Getting them and giving them should feel so good. When you find that perfect gift for a friend and it's received with a big smile - is there any better feeling? You put so much thought into what they want and need, and you want them to feel that. Don't be afraid to dive into one of the most personal spaces in the gift world - scent. ❀️ What's your favorite scent? Tag a friend. πŸ˜‰

SAME, Amy! πŸ™ŒπŸ» What story does your favorite thing tell?
