All About Vim + Vigor Candle Co.

Kristin Boyd, the owner of Vim + Vigor Candle Co., started making candles in 2015. Based in Phoenix, Arizona, Kristin meticulously crafts all of the fragrance combinations for her candles and then hand pours the natural soy wax herself.

Her passion for repurposing old materials brought this candle store to life, and she hopes to inspire others to reduce waste by repurposing the gorgeous copper canisters her candles come in. She has instructions available for removing candle wax remnants and suggestions on how to repurpose the copper container.

Vim + Vigor Candle Co. even offers custom candles for weddings, events, or gifts! You can learn more about this on their FAQ page.

No. 139 Vanilla + Sandalwood

I received the No. 139 Vanilla + Sandalwood candle and was struck by the creamy scent before I even lit the wick. Though the primary scent I notice is vanilla, it is balanced with earthy sandalwood and hints of amber and clove.

Made with essential oils, including cedar, patchouli, and clove leaf, the Vanilla + Sandalwood candle is made with 100% natural soy wax. The wax doesn’t burn down very quickly, and the scent is nicely potent, so I believe the candle will last me some time. The 4 oz candles, like the one I have, is quoted as burning for 30+ hours.

Like all of the copper container candles, this candle comes in three sizes: 4, 8, and 16 oz. Prices range from $28 to $53 for the largest size. Learn more about the No. 139 Vanilla + Sandalwood candle here.

Scents that Caught My Eye

Besides the vanilla and sandalwood candle, there are a number of scent combinations that caught my eye. Some are scents you may have seen together before, such as rose and amber, but others are a bit more original, like bamboo and basil or lemon blossom and orchid. Here are some of the scents that caught my eye:
