Remember when you were about to move into your first place? You dreamed about what your first place would look like. And, if you are a female, you dreamed about what your home would smell like.
I have a love for candles. And, there have been countless number of candles burned in all the places I have lived. Some of them have been misses, but once you find one that is your perfect scent... you'll go to the ends of the earth to always have one burning in your home. Once we got married, it was key to find a scent that he and I both enjoyed. And I'll be honest, he hasn't really loved a candle that I've burned. That is until I started burning a Blackjack Wax Co. candle. And now that we've started burning these hand poured soy candles, we will never go back to anything else.
Most of you know we are from a small town in Mississippi. And even though we aren't living there anymore, we still keep up with our friends back home. I met Courtney when my brother was a senior in high school. And Patrick's dad and my dad worked together for many years. These two married a few years ago and their partnership was a match made in heaven.
If Courtney could be described in one word it would be, talented. Everything I've ever seen with her hands in it has turned into art. And she's had her hand in candle making since she was a little girl, and it's grown into this amazing artisan candle company today.
Their focus is creating high quality, small batch soy candles. Courtney and Patrick hand-pour each of their candles in batches of ten or less, in a studio in Mississippi. These candles are made using American grown soy wax, all natural cotton wicks, fine fragrance oils and pure essential oils. The packaging is a simple amber apothecary jar, and after careful inspection, their candles are finished with a kraft tag, that's their seal of approval.
Here is a sample of some of the candles they offer on their website. You can also purchase their candles on etsy.com. And, some boutiques are lucky enough to carry these in house for purchase.
These candles make the perfect "happy" for someone in your life. And, one lucky winner will receive their very own Blackjack Wax Co. by entering to win below! The giveaway ends Friday, January 29th at noon. Good Luck to all, and a big thanks to Courtney and Patrick for sponsoring this giveaway!!
