We're getting down to the wire for holiday shopping! Still have a few people to check off your list? Me too! That's why I'm excited for today's post because I'm introducing a new candle company called Katya Candles. Candles have always been a go-to gift for me, because who doesn't love having their home smell amazing?! Another cool thing about these candles is each one comes with a ring inside that features Swarovski Crystals. Double win!
I checked out the Fir Balsam flavor and was sooo impressed! Since I was going to be in Washington for the holidays, we didn't put up a tree in the apartment this year, but if you walked in you'd think we had one thanks to this candle! 🎄 I feel like this is a scent that's kind of hard to nail down -- some brands' scents end up smelling artificial, but Katya Candles really got it right! Like standing in the middle of a Christmas tree farm right! It smells so stinking good! Even when it's not lit with the lid off, the scent really fills the room, which I love.
The candles are made of soy wax and are free of dyes, parabens, sulfates, pesticides or major allergens. They're also made in the U.S. and are all hand-poured California. West coast babyyy! Overall I was really impressed with the quality of the product. From the gift boxes to the glassware and the ring inside, you can tell they've really paid attention to the details.
Another cool thing about the company is that is was started by an awesome girl boss who has really put her heart and soul into the company (and it shows!) Since becoming a small business owner, I appreciate all of the hustle and hard work that goes into these businesses SO much more. One of my favorite quotes right now is "When you buy from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance" and it's so true! When you shop small you're supporting someone's dream which is an extra little bonus while doing holiday shopping for those you love!
