Amber Vale Home, a new home decor/candle company is based locally in Franklin Tennessee where they are adding a little touch of Tennessee light and love to each and every hand poured candle they make. I fell in love with their Tennessee Christmas candle back in November and couldn’t wait to try their new fragrances because I just new I was going to love them too, and I was not wrong.

Getting to work with them as they launched their holiday trio filled me with Tennessee pride for this small local business and wow! They just keep growing because their candles are available in cool local shops in Berry Farms and College Grove with more locations being added. I’m so happy to be a part of this and help bring awareness to them. Go visit their website and to learn more about their small batch process and hang out with them on Instagram or Facebook and you’ll soon understand why I love them and want you to love them too!

Amber Vale Home Says: “Getaways are the best for many reasons, but one being that you get to take a break from your routine and step back and enjoy the simplicity of life. This candle gives way to that “unwind” experience with notes of cypress and spearmint — a truly relaxing combination. So go draw a bath, curl up in a cozy nook of your home or throw in the candle on your next getaway experience and you can be sure you will be invigorated and captivated by the fresh clean scent that lingers around your space — it will awaken the relax inside of you!

My Thoughts:

I can’t stop sniffing this candle! Honestly, I have it sitting on my dining room table and every time I come in the room, I pick up this candle and take a big sniff. I get the scent of Spearmint first, super fresh and clean but with an added boost of pine and smoke, which I contribute to the Cypress. When I burn it, the subtle wood scent from the wick mixes with the slightly smoky scent from the Cypress that adds a subtle masculinity to this candle that’s appealing to me and my husband.

Grove Description:

Amber Vale Home Grove Candle #ad

I simply could not wait to get my hands on this candle when I first read about it on Amber Vale’s Instagram feed. I ADORE all things grapefruit and gravitate to products with a grapefruit/citrus scent.

According to Amber Vale Home Grove has” the juicy yumminess of a just sliced into grapefruit — that’s the fragrance of this candle. It is unfettered in every way — just pure grapefruit. You won’t be disappointed to burn this is any room of your home to add a fresh, clean scent and a dose of citrusy cheerfulness!

My Thoughts:

Yummy fresh, clean and grapefruit? This is the candle of my dreams, so I was surprised that I prefer this candle lit. I don’t pick it up and sniff it as often as I do Guest House. I think that’s because unlit, I pick up the slightly smoky scent from the Cypress, but when lit for say, 15 minutes, it’s all fresh-cut grapefruit and I am there for it! Learn more or purchase here

Tips on Lightening Wooden Wicks: 

I had a little trouble getting my Grove candle to stay lit and I reached out to Amber Vale Home and was immediately helped by Amber Vale Home founder, Michele. She reassured me that wooden wicks, can be tricky to work with and it is completely normal to have to try multiple times to light wooden wick candles. She reminded me to read the candle lightning tips card she puts in every order they ship! Here’s the tips from their card.
