August Simply Earth || Candle Artisan

August 1, 2022

August first means the first day of Fall right? I realize it will still be summer for another two months, and continuously hot for at least one more after that. 

But let's break out all the scents and pretend. 

This month's Simply Earth theme, Candle Artisan, and the beeswax candle materials in the box just feel like cooler months. 


Y'all know I love a new blend, and they've delivered yet again with Liquid Luck. It just smells warm. 

This blend is used in one of the candles as well as the Reading Nook Diffuser Blend, and that blend makes the entire house smell like you're hidden away in a library. 

I'll be working on the candles this afternoon, so be sure to check out Instagram for the story. 

For reference, here's a bit more about each oil that is included in the box for August. 

Liquid Luck | blend | calming, uplifting (kid safe 10+) 

Peppermint | single | energizes, soothes (kid 10+ and pregnancy safe) 

Blood Orange | single | uplifts, stimulates, cleans (kids 2+, pregnancy, & dog safe) 

Fir Needle | single | supports respiration, calms, soothes (kids 2+, pregnancy safe) 

This month's extras include 3 beeswax sheets, cotton candle wick, and 3 leaf molds.

It took me a second to realize that the molds for the wax melt warmer recipe were in the shape of leaves. This is super cute, and would make a great back to school gift for any teacher. Especially sine many have wax warmers... but the artificial scents aren't so helpful for kids with allergies. 

The first thing I did on this rainy day was fill all of our diffusers with this lovely blend. 

I'm always suspicious of how Fir Needle with turn out in a diffuser recipe, I never want to to be too Christmas smelling. Or on the other side of that - too many tree oils and I'm a snotty mess. This one though has just enough to add to the warm scent but not enough to scream Fir Needle at you. 

A few things before I wrap this up - 

Every month Simply Earth donates 13% of their profits to end human trafficking. With an estimated 4 million victims globally, human trafficking is among one of the worst atrocities. No one deserves to be exploited, which is why Simply Earth donates to organization on the front lines. This month Simply Earth is donating to Call to Freedom. They provide safe housing, mental health counseling, medical assistance, transportation, and many other supportive services to those who have survived slavery and sexual exploitation.
