Mother's Day: A Celebration of Love

Mother, Maa, Madre, and Mama are universally recognized terms of endearment for mothers across the globe. This simple word encapsulates profound emotions of love, validation, sacrifice, and care, devoid of pretense. Through moments of triumph, despair, and every challenge in between, the presence of our mothers remains constant. Candles make a wonderful gift for mothers of any age. Not only do they have an amazing aroma, but they also possess scents that can trigger memories or uplift her mood. Do not forget to include a special message to bring back fond memories. At Colonial Candle®, we have taken extra consideration to find the ideal candle choices for mothers based on their unique personalities.

Autumn is on my mind

Autumn is on my mind

You know when those golden leaves start doing their little dance in the crisp air? Well, that's when I start thinking, "Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird, I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."

Well technically, those are not my words (by the way it's from a poem by George Eliot), but hey, the feeling are authentic! Autumn is like that gentle nudge, telling us the scorching summer days are over, and it's time for some cozy moments and nostalgia and scent of the earthy, sweet scent of fallen leaves piling up and the cool evenings when the air carries the delicious smoky scent of campfires and bonfires, and time for a treat from the bounty of the season – pumpkins and apples galore! I can practically smell the pumpkin pies baking and those warm pumpkin spice lattes with their teasing hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. And don't get me started on the freshly harvested crops like corn, wheat, and hay. It's like the whole world is celebrating the harvest season.

Colonial Candle® brought back their Signature Oval jars this season that not only look fabulous as a centerpiece but also fill your home with that warm, inviting autumn aura. They've got a nose for the best autumn fragrances, so trust me the candles will set the perfect mood without going overboard. Happy autumn, folks!

DIY Spring Cleaning - Candle Edition! - Colonial Candle

DIY Spring Cleaning - Candle Edition!

Spring is here, people - and so is the onslaught of pollen and dust. I don't know about you, but we're already in need of some serious spring cleaning. It doesn't matter if you're dusting off the candles on your mantelpiece or the box of tapers you've saved for your client's wedding tablescape, we're here to help!

Proper cleaning of classic wax is one of the most popular questions we get asked here at Colonial Candle. Sometimes, we get a customer that pulls out a box of pillars they haven't used in a few months and there's going to be a bit of dust on them. (I swear it's not our fault!) Don't worry, it happens to us, too - so, we've developed a quick cleaning fix.

It's super quick and easy! There's only fours things you'll need: your candles, a pair of scissors, some old nylon tights, and a butterknife.

Step 1. Using your scissors, cut out a piece of fabric from the nylon tights, about a hand-sized in length.

Step 2. Rub the fabric across the surface of the candle - the wax should immediately be shiner and smoother.

Step 3. For more stubborn spots, you can gently use a butterknife to scrape the mark from the surface of the candle. Be careful not to make any holes in the wax!

*There will most likely be a waxy residue left on the tights, so feel free to throw them away. If you want to reuse them later, all you have to do is freeze the fabric overnight and then take the butterknife to scrap of the wax.

And finally you're done! Now, go ahead and let that creative spark shine! We want to see all of your decorating ideas - from tablescapes to home decor. Feel free to tag us on any of our social media sites.
