4 Scented Candles for Travel Lovers

The Travel Collection: 4 Vacation Inspired Scented Candles

Every year the month of May brings school to a close, ushers warmer weather into the air and produces a highly contagious and insatiable itch to travel. It's almost like there's something in the atmosphere that brings about a bad case of wanderlust.

With the end of winter hibernation, we've stretched our limbs and crawled out of our nooks wondering where to spend summer vaca. For the past few weeks, we've been seeing our #SocialLights on Facebook and Instagram debating on whether it was time to break out the bathing suits and head to the beach or get lost in the unexpected charms of an unexplored city. With all this talk of vacation and exploration, the Travel Collection was born.
