Make your house smell like a mermaid's tail
Do you like scented candles and wax melts? Author Lindsey R. Loucks has
joined her love of story-telling with creative, eco-friendly candles,
wax melts, lip balms, and other products with her company
“turtledinosaur.” Her candles and wax melts are made with renewable,
American grown soy, and include such whimsical names as Make Friends
With Vampires, My Mermaid Tail Is Better Than Yours, and Book Boyfriend.
Each candle and wax melt comes with a short story to explain the name.
When asked what tips she'd give to other aspiring candlemakers, Lindsey answered:
collect as many free or cheap samples as I can from different
companies. (My favorites are The Flaming Candle Company, Rustic
Escentuals, and Indigo.) Then I experiment by combining scents for a
totally unique smell.
"For example, Book Boyfriend is a mix of oud wood, leather, musk, and a
scent called Fierce. It took a while to get the proportions right, but
once I did, BAM! Book Boyfriend was created! I knew ahead of time kind
of how I wanted it to smell, and I got it!"
