California Dreamin 9oz Candle

The sandy beaches, lush palm trees, and beautiful sunshine can make California feel like a dream. We wanted to encapsulate that feeling so we created our largest candle, California Dreamin. This is also one of our most sustainable candles as it is made with 100% recycled glass. Filled with notes of melon, coconut, flowers, and a hint of sandalwood, this candle will teleport you right into the sand and give any home a coastal feel. Shop California Dreamin 9oz Candle.

Ojai Travel Candle

All of our travel candles come in 3oz tins, equipped with a lid that makes them perfect for traveling! Though they may seem small, they are mighty as they have 12-15 hours of burn time. Our Ojai Candle is influenced by the cascading pink glow on Ojai's mountains at sunset. This candle has fragrances of pomegranate, rosemary, sage, and cider, that pair wonderfully with its woody base. The complex scent of this candle will make you feel like you're standing at the base of the bright pink mountains. Shop Ojai Travel Candle.
