Six Scents to Power Through Your Spring Cleaning

Six Scents to Power Through Your Spring Cleaning

Spring is finally in the air! The days are getting longer and the sun is shining brighter. Now that the sun is revealing the forgotten dust in your home, it’s time to change with the seasons and begin a deep cleaning. What’s the first thing you do before breaking out the broom? Light a candle, of course! Many people burn candles while they clean, as candles can help distract from the pungent odor of cleaning supplies.

Kristin & Company suggests these scents that can help soothe you through your cleaning and bring a fresher scent into your home:

 

#1: Citrus & Basil

Citrus is already a common ingredient in most household cleaners, so it’s not hard to imagine why people may associate citrus scents with a sense of “clean.” Our blend adds in the scent of fresh basil leaves to take this heavenly scent even further, balancing out the sharper notes of citrus into a more clean and crisp aroma.

 

#2: Eucalyptus

This Australian plant is already world famous for its medical properties, but the scent alone is soothing and earthy. Studies have suggested it can be used for relieving sinus issues, coughs, and even inflammation. Eucalyptus oil has also been recommended as an insect repellent, and our soy candles are scented with pure eucalyptus oil. Burning this candle in your home could help deter unwanted pests!

 

#3: Lavender

Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils for a reason. This herb is native to the Mediterranean and is known to reduce anxiety, restlessness, headaches, and more. Just the mental image of a field of lavender wafting gently in the breeze feels relaxing. Light up this candle for a mellow mood while you work.

 

#4: Lemongrass Sage

The energizing scent of lemongrass mixed with the calming notes of sage is the perfect combo for a spring cleaning session. Lemongrass kills bacteria and repels insects, while also uplifting your spirit. The practice of burning sage in the home is actually an age-old tradition in some cultures, and has been used to cleanse negative energy from homes and calm strong emotions.

 

#5: Lilac

 

Traditionally, lilacs are an ornamental plant but they also offer a lovely aroma as well as some useful benefits. If you really want to channel the smell of spring into your home, you can’t go wrong with the wonderful smell of lilac. It’s also been shown to have anti-fungal and antibacterial properties and to ease anxiety.

 

#6: Rain Drops

Really, what’s more relaxing than a spring shower? You can bring that scent into your home at any time with our Rain Drops candle. It offers a fresh floral fragrance as if beads of rain passed over a field of jasmine and grass. Jasmine has been found to reduce stress and increase concentration.

#7: Best Friends

Many of our customers first try this scent out of curiosity due to its intriguing name, Best Friends. however, after that initial trial, they regularly return to this unique scent. What is the scent of Best Friends? Like any true friendship, it starts with a strong foundation – in this case a creamy vanilla base. Splashed on top of the vanilla is a wonderful blend of sweet berry goodness.

 

#6: Orange Cupcake

It’s the sweetest thing from the bakeshop: decadent orange cupcakes! This sweet, fruity candle scent is close enough to the real dessert to make you salivate! Featuring a delectable aroma of orange peel baked with brown sugar and topped with creamsicle frosting. We suggest burning this candle on a weekend morning to wake up the kids.

 

#5: Spiced Cranberry

Our soy candle fans really enjoy the stronger, bolder scent of Spiced Cranberry. We craft a fragrant blend of tart cranberry with orange zest, and a hint of ginger to give it a real kick-in-the-nose!

#4: Apple Jack & Peel

Rounding out number four in our most popular candle scents is Apple Jack and Peel. This is our unique blend that creates a welcoming aroma of baked apples warmed with a touch of cinnamon and spice. Apple Jack and Peel may remind you of summertime fun, but it’s a great scent for your home year-round.

 

#3: Apple Pie

Apples are just too good to only have one scent dedicated to them! Our Apple Pie candle is a love letter to the traditional American dessert. Enjoy the scent of juicy, sliced apples with brown sugar blanketed in a warm, buttery crust. This soy wax candle brings enticing bakeshop scents to any household.

 

#2: Vanilla

Like lavender, vanilla is another essential candle scent. It’s rich, pleasing scent and taste have made their way into most of our favorite desserts and baking. Now you can have this wonderful scent in your home without the traditional soot of paraffin wax candles. Our Vanilla scent is derived from the oils of natural vanilla beans, and is even said to smell stronger than traditional waxes.

 

 

#1: Pine Needles

And the number one scent choice is: Pine Needles. Our soy candles give off the fresh, earthy scent of a northern pine forest with a pleasant blend of fir and balsam. We’ve modeled our Pine Needles scent after the native trees in our hometown in Northern Michigan. Some candle enthusiasts many consider this scent “too plain”, but it actually is very effective in overpowering other less pleasant smells. Bring the forest home today!

Enjoy Some Autumn Delight with Kristin’s New Fall Scents

Introducing Kristin and Company’s Three New Fall Candle Scents

How awesome is fall? Leaves are changing colors, the weather is cool and crisp, and it’s the transition time from T’s to sweatshirts and sweaters. It’s part of what makes this season a favorite for so many people. Fall candle scents add something special to the season. Enjoy some autumn delight with Kristin’s new fall scents to celebrate this time of year!

Fall into fall: What makes fall great?

Why we fall in love with fall:

Candles

Kristin and Company soy wax candles to be exact! When it gets dark in the evening, light a candle and look out at the moon! Fall candle scents make fall even better.

Color

The colors in fall are vivid and beautiful. The leaves change colors and turn the world into a stunning painting. Everywhere you look there are pops of color, integrating bright colors into the usual green and brown motif. Leaves are beautiful, colorful, and remind us of nature and the circle of life.

Crunch crunch

The crunch of leaves is fun and strangely satisfying. It’s kind of like popping bubble wrap, but the natural version. No matter your age, it never gets old.

Perfect sunshine

The sun is still bright so we can enjoy the light and get a little recommended vitamin D; but the sun’s rays won’t give you sunburn or make you sweltering hot.

Happy Halloween

Halloween is on its way. On the other 364 days of the year, you feel a twinge of guilt buying large quantities of chocolate. But on October 31st, you get to buy treats to hand out to kids in cute costumes; and at around 8pm the rest is yours – guilt free! Plus you can dress up and enjoy the whimsy, as it’s the one time each year it is socially acceptable for adults to wear a super hero costume in public!

Horror movies

Horror movies are more fun to watch on Halloween (Or, scarier depending on how seriously you take the holiday.).

Giving thanks for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is coming. And thank goodness for Thanksgiving. It’s a time for family, friends, and food! (And shopping for some!)

Sweaters

Sweaters are comfortable and cozy! The weather is finally cool enough to warrant them after four months of your attempts to wear the thinnest fabrics possible.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin pie is worth the 11-month wait. Buy or bake an extra one to freeze, for you pumpkin enthusiasts. And pumpkin spice lattes are back!

Apples, apples, apples

Apples are always good. And they’re a healthy alternative to sweets while still being as festive as the rest of the fall menu. Caramel apples sweeten life up and are unmistakably fall. Not to mention apple cider, apple pie, and apple crisp!

Presenting Our New Fall Candle Scents

These fall candle scents will get you in the mood for fall.

  1. Cozy Sweater
  2. Give Thanks
  3. Harvest Moon

Cozy Sweater

The essence of roasted chestnuts and brown sugar will surround you and keep you cozy!

Try roasting chestnuts and baking your favorites like apple crisp and apple cake. Get into your favorite cozy sweater and burn a Kristin Cozy Sweater candle to enhance the evening. The warmth of candles and sweaters make every night a little warmer.

SHOP NOW 

Give Thanks

This candle is great for the Thanksgiving holiday. Give Thanks is a scent that welcomes guests into your home and makes them feel just that: right at home!
