We all have our vices and our loves, and some of you, you know who you are are ABSOLUTELY addicted to Votivo Red Currant Candles. In search of something new, We smelled every candle at the gift fair, nothing beat Votivo’s Red Currant so it is back on our shelves by popular demand.
We grow our own lavender with love and tender care, and not much else. Meaning, that our lavender is grown with sunshine and rain in the Mountains of West Virginia without the use of chemicals or pesticides. The whole family helps to harvest it and the smell is wonderful. You can use it to make sachets, potporri or even cook with it. Lavender icecream, cookies and scones are delicious. We have ben using it to make our own HAND POURED LAVENDER CANDLES. They smell amazing.
