Hand-poured candles with that sweet, sweet scent of home.
If the phrase, Home is where the heart is, seems a bit on the nose, this brand is serving up that same variety of warm nostalgia, but a with fresh, modern twist. For this brand, what transports you back to the places you love most isn't what you see, it's what you smell.
Homesick Candles offers a thoughtfully-crafted selection of immersive, scented candles (as well as a variety of reed diffusers, car fresheners, and wick trimmers), each one lovingly developed with the contributions of up to 100 different people.
One idea connects all the candles in the range: Homesick Candles has created scent combinations that evoke personal memories – of places (Brazil Candle, Miami Candle, Georgia Candle – in fact they’ve got all 50 states covered), of activities (Book Club Candle, Ski Trip Candle, Pumpkin Picking Candle), and of celebratory events (Birthday Party Candle).
Why We Love Them
The Science & The Soul
Homesick Candles are made from a natural soy wax blend with premium cotton wicks and custom fragrance oils. They are non-toxic and contain no lead, plastics, parabens, synthetic dyes or phthalates. Typically weighing nearly 14 ounces, they burn for around 60 to 80 hours. And they are never tested on animals. That means enlightened business practices to enlighten our homes!
Throughout the day, our senses are overwhelmed by sights, sounds, tastes – so much so, that we often neglect our sense of smell. And yet it’s those recognizable scents of meaningful places and times which are often the most powerful reminders of days gone by.
Homesick Candles’ insight has been to bolster the strength of the community. It uses communities to identify authentic fragrances that smell wonderful in the home, and which keep alive the memories of earlier years for decades into the future. It’s the scented equivalent of a personalized road trip.
