maker inspiration: uplifting lemon candles and soapBrighten up your collection with lemon-inspired candles, soap, and body care products.

If your collection could use a little energizing, let lemon inspire you. Citrus-scented products are like a burst of sunshine for the senses—and lemon is a surprisingly versatile scent! 

Scroll through our ideas to learn how to bring up the mood with lemon-themed candles, bath and body products, and more. 

Candles for zest and relaxation

While lemon is lovely as a single-note scent, we might enjoy it even more as part of a sophisticated accord. This first collection is a refined interpretation of lemon fragrances that would be right at home in luxury lines or spa-themed collections. 

Opt for complex yet balanced fragrances, like White Tea or Day at the Spa, to elevate a recognizable scent like lemon. For naturally-scented upscale candles, try Litsea Cubeba essential oil.  

Iridescent yellow containers and vintage-inspired white glass lids underscore the "lemon, but better" vibe of this collection.

Citrus bliss bath and body care

Sometimes we want our bath and body products to help us wind down and relax; at other times, we want a refreshing and invigorating experience. When the latter is the vibe, lemon-scented body care is the spa-like way to wake you up and leave you feeling refreshed. 

Our bath and body collection features three ways to pamper yourself with aromatic lemon:

Lemon Verbena Whipped Soap

Lemon & Lavender Hand Poured Soap

White Currant Sugar Scrub Bars

DIY dessert candles

Treat yourself to dessert candles that are just as comforting as they are zesty and refreshing. Lemon is an excellent choice for bakery or sweet scents because its sharp brightness gives a sense of balance to sugary, creamy, or otherwise indulgent notes.

These candles will satisfy any craving for a sweet, gourmand interpretation of lemon:
