Monday’s Giveaway: Scented Handmade Candles (closed)

Today we are giving away…

A $25 Gift Certificate

from Sunset Candle Company

Whenever we invite friends over for dinner, I always make an effort to light some scented candles around the house.  Not only does this create a welcoming fragrance, but it also makes for a warm, inviting ambiance.

Sunset Candle Company is family owned and operated with their factory located right here in Colorado Springs.  In their own words:

What makes Sunset Candles different are the unique properties, blends and superior fragrance formulas we use.  We also use specially made lead free wicks designed to reduce soot and smoke, giving our candles a cleaner and longer burn time over other brands.  Each candle is hand poured and hand whipped which assures each and every candle has the correct blend of scent-oil consistency from top to bottom.

Their 8 ounce candles burn for 60 – 90 hours and their 24 ounce candles burn for 150 – 190 hours.  Choose from over 90 scents including Apricot Cream, Indian Lemongrass, Hollyberry Spice, White Tea & Ginger, and Orange Patchouli.

Here’s something cool.  Sunset Candle Company has helped hundreds of organizations – schools, churches, sports teams, bands, and choirs – with fundraising.  Even with their reasonable prices, organizations can earn up to $6 to $10 per candle sold.

Sunset Candle Company is giving away a $25 gift certificate to anything in their store.
