Benefits of Using Artisan Candles from Hemingway Lane

Artisan candles handmade by Hemingway Lane are handcrafted with high-quality ingredients, making them eco-friendly and safe for your home environment. They often come in unique and aesthetically pleasing designs that can enhance the ambiance of any room. The benefits of using artisan candles include:

  1. Natural Ingredients: Artisan candles are made with natural ingredients like coconut wax. They are free of parabens and phthalates, avoiding harmful chemicals found in mass-produced candles purchased in big box stores.

  2. Longer Burn Time: Due to the high-quality of materials, our candles tend to burn longer (about 45 hours for a 9.5 oz jar candle), which is much longer than conventional candles, providing you with more hours of enjoyment and more value for your money.

  3. Enhanced Aroma: The use of high-quality oils creates a more potent and pleasant aroma that can help relax, uplift, or set the mood in your living space.

  4. Supporting Small Businesses: By purchasing Hemingway Lane's handmade candles, you are supporting my small business (and I'm extremely grateful for that)

Factors to Consider When Choosing Artisan Candles

When choosing artisan candles for your home, consider the following factors:

  • Scent: Choose a scent that matches the room's purpose or your mood.

  • Size & Shape: Consider the size and shape of the candle to fit the space you want to decorate. Many different jars and wax colors can make candles a beautiful piece of room decor.

  • Materials: Look for high-quality materials to ensure a clean and even burn

Choosing Artisan Candles for the Living Room

Artisan candles can add warmth and ambiance to your living room. When choosing candles for the main living area, consider scents that promote relaxation and comfort, such as lavender or vanilla. Opt for candles in decorative containers or holders to complement your living room decor. Place the candles on coffee tables, mantels, or shelves to create a cozy atmosphere. Remember to always keep safety in mind and never leave burning candles unattended.

Selecting Artisan Candles for the Bedroom

Is the bedroom your sanctuary? A place to get away to unwind and relax from the day? Introducing Hemingway Lane candles to your sanctuary brings a special touch to the ambiance and aids in relaxation. Our crackling wood wick candles truly appeal to your sense of sound. Think of it like closing your eyes and enjoying the sound of a campfire or fireplace. Scents that promote relaxation and restful sleep, like lavender are an excellent choice.

Artisan Candles for the Bathroom

Whether you just want to "enjoy the go" or are drawing a nice bath to relax, artisan candles are an excellent addition to create a serene environment.

Best Fragrances for Different Rooms in Your Home

Vanilla or lavender scents work well in bedrooms for relaxation. Citrus scents like lemon or orange are ideal for kitchens to mask cooking odors. Clean scents like linen or cotton suit bathrooms for a fresh feel. For living rooms, consider warm scents like amber or sandalwood for a cozy ambiance. Experiment with different fragrances to find what suits each room best.

Caring for Artisan Candles

When caring for artisan candles, it's essential to keep a few things in mind.

  • Trim the wick to about a quarter of an inch before each use to prevent excess smoke and soot.

  • Avoid placing candles in drafty areas to ensure an even burn and prevent uneven melting.

  • When extinguishing the candle, use a snuffer or gently blow it out to prevent wax splatter.

  • Store candles away from direct sunlight and dust to maintain their quality.

  • Wood wicks tend to leave behind a bit of residue in the wax from the burnt wood particles. It's completely normal and does not negatively impact the performance.

  • By incorporating artisan candles thoughtfully into your decor, you can transform your living spaces into inviting and cozy retreats.
