1. Seaside Chic: Every day is a beach day with these chic coastal candles! The cool blues and greens of the Sapphire and Seafoam tumblers illustrate ocean hues, while the simple seashell embeds are reminders of your favorite seaside escape. 

Scents to try: Sea Minerals, High Tide, Beachwood, Solar Sands, Coconut Soleil

2. Moons: It’s not just a phase; the Black and Bronze Bubble Tins look positively celestial with the addition of a few moons and clouds. Yellow Beeswax gives the crescent moon a nice, natural pop of color that mirrors the warm tone of the Gold Bubble Tin. We went with a mystical monochrome look for our Black Bubble Tin. Experiment with dye to further customize your embeds; a white moon on a black candle would really shine!

Scents to try: Moonflower Nectar, Cashmere Plum, Rosemary Sage, White Sage and Lavender

3. Pretty Petals: Looking for a pop of color? You can’t go wrong with florals! We paired a few flower embeds with the Charcoal Nordic 3-Wick Tumbler, but it’s easy for a few accent florals to bloom into a bouquet with so many shapes and colors to choose from!

Scents to try: English Garden, Magnolia and Peony, Freesia and Lilac, Lily of the Valley
