There truly is no better pairing than your favourite candle and a good book! This week we’re excited to introduce you to the local mother and daughter duo behind My Weekend is Booked! A Southwestern Ontario small business specializing in literary-inspired gift boxes and book-themed natural soy candles.
Christina and Emily have made it their mission to dazzle and delight with gifts that are as beautiful as they are useful. Here at Anna’s, we’re happy to carry some of their candles- as we love that they are clean-burning due to their 100% soy base, plus they don’t use any synthetic fragrances, meaning they contain 100% natural plant-derived fragrance oils or essential oils.
A natural candle that smells good, is that even possible? That’s what Christina and Emily wondered when they began their quest to create soy candles that do not contain synthetic fragrances. After spending months experimenting with essential oils and natural plant-derived fragrance oils, they perfected recipes for truly natural candles that burn clean and smell incredible. Exclusively using soy wax made in the USA with American-grown soy. Unlike many candle companies, they do not add paraffin to their candles.
Individually hand-poured, these small-batch candles offer one-of-a-kind whimsical labels designed by talented designers to help tell a story- it’s clear that these two have a true understanding and appreciation for the craft and creation of what it means to make a candle that tells a story.
