A few weeks ago there was a terrible smell in my bedroom. I couldn’t tell what it was, maybe a dead animal in the wall maybe a teenager (Oh I’m kidding, they stink but not this bad). It was so strong I couldn’t sleep, so I got up around midnight and looked for something to mask the stink. I tried some essential oils, but they didn’t get rid of it completely. I went into the kitchen and found an old scented candle, so I took it into my bedroom and lit it. After about half an hour the sweet aroma was lulling me to sleep, so I blew it out and drifted off to dreamland.
The next day I lit the little candle again. After all, if it’s good at night it would be great during the day, right? Kind of a more is better philosophy. And I liked it. Everyone who came into my room would comment on the nice smell and I would reply, “Why thank you! It’s my new perfume,” basically because I enjoy telling the same joke over and over.
Sadly my little candle only lasted a couple of days because it was old and didn’t have much life expectancy. I decided I needed to find some new candles. But I had a problem because I can’t use the ones from the super center or craft store. They give me a headache. I need quality people, quality.
I made a plan one morning to go out and scour the town looking for a really good candle. Now here’s the part of this fascinating story you won’t believe. That same day I got an email from a friend that lives here in town. She told me that she and her husband recently bought a candle company! Yes, it was a sign. I need candles, she has candles. What’s more obvious than that?!
I got some of their candles and they are absolutely lovely! The company is called Circle E Candles and I am now completely obsessed with them. They are hand poured and made from the finest ingredients.
Also Circle E Candles has monthly specials that are great deals. This month one of the specials is a fragrance called Leather. I’ll bet that goes over BIG here in Texas! One of the others is called Peace, which I’m pretty sure I need a truck load of.
And then my friend, who I will now probably start stalking because, well, I liked her already and this puts it over the top, wanted to giveaway two of the 12 oz Circle E Candles to one of you! You can even choose your own fragrances. Just enter below to win:
