{shoal creek candles} review + giveaway

I don't know about you, but I just love fall. I will admit, here in Florida, we don't "feel" it for quite a while. As a matter of fact, just the other day it was 95 degrees! But, even when it's sweltering outside, I still love for the house to evoke this, my favorite season.

Audrey, from Shoal Creek Candles, sent me some of her Orange Clove melting cubes.
We love them! What I like the most about her products is that she uses soy. Soy candles melt through completely & you can actually smell the scent! Honestly, about five minutes after one melting cube melted, the entire first-floor of our house was filled with the wonderful aroma of orange clove.

Here's how the melting cubes work: just place 1 cube on a tart burner, add heat (mine requires a tea light candle), let it melt, enjoy! We have melted these over & over again. {melting cubes come in sets of 6}

Again, the real difference is soy. So, if you're tired of not being able to actually smell your "scented" candles, head on over to Shoal Creek Candles for the cure.


And, Audrey is giving away a set of melting cubes to 3 of you! (you pick the scent)
