Announcement and Giveaway!

I've briefly mentioned a few times on this blog that I make candles.

Beautiful aromas--particularly florals and clean fragrances--elevate my mood, help me relax and simply make me happy. And that's why I started making candles, first for myself, then ultimately friends and family.

What started as a hobby became a small business--Harmony Farm Candles--earlier this year as several lovely shops in my area (and even a boutique in Colorado) began carrying the soy wax candles I make right in my kitchen.

And now, I'm pleased to take another step in my cottage industry by opening an Etsy shop!



Made from all-natural, American-made soy wax, the dye-free candles are hand-poured into 8 oz. glass jelly jars. Topped with zinc-colored lids, they have a simple, vintage aesthetic that fits seamlessly into many styles of decor.  Fragrances range from florals, to clean and citrusy scents, and several seasonal offerings. And most importantly, they smell wonderful!

With the holidays coming up, these candles make wonderful presents, hostess and teacher gifts, and even stocking stuffers!

To celebrate the grand opening of 
the Harmony Farm Candles Etsy shop, 
I'm excited to hold a candle giveaway! 

The giveaway features three candles befitting the fast-approaching holiday season:  Pumpkin Pie, Mulled Cider and Wintergreen.






This giveaway runs through Sunday, November 20th at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.

The winner will be announced that night, contacted by email, and the candles will be ready to ship on Monday so they can arrive (hopefully) in time for Thanksgiving!  I'm sad to say this, but due to shipping limitations, I can only ship candles at this time to U.S. addresses. I'm sorry, all you lovely readers, who live outside the U.S. :(

  11. I hearted Lily of the Valley! That is one of my faves out of the ones I have :)

  12. I've actually been in the same room with your candles and they fill up a room with the scent. I love that they really put out the heavenly smell, but the scents are natural not fake smelling... They're amazing. Right now, "Wintergreen" is my favorite, it's heavenly... but I haven't smelled "lemon cookie" yet or the "pumpkin pie"... so i'm betting it might be a close tie!

For some reason, Google won't let me post this under my account, although I just did so on a previous post, so I shall be anonymous this time.
