February Candle of the Month

I have been meaning to try this months candle for a little while now. It is by Feest, a Vancouver based company which makes my Canadian pride alarm sound off! Their candles have an understated elegance and simplicity, every scent is pure white wax in a simple german canning jar.

I bought mine locally at Plum Home + Design, but they are also online at Bespoke
The scents are all very sophisticated and unique, but not over powering or fake smelling. I chose the Soothing scent, which is a blend of tahitian vanilla, bergamot and Japanese peppermint.

I love that each and every candle is hand poured. Candles are such a joy for me, and supporting a business that does things the 'old fashioned' way just make me enjoy this one a little more.

I plan to put the jar to work for me as a vase as soon as this candle runs out, but I sure hope that isn't too soon.

Lovely! I'm currently obsessed with (very expensive) Chapters candles (my current favourite is Kimono Rose by Thymes), but I'd love to try something more local and independent. Even better that this one is from my city! Thanks for the tip :)

I'm so glad you are loving your feast candle. They are my fav and it is great to support a Canadian made product.
Thanks for the shout out!

That blend of fragrance is magical. I wish there was a way to turn on a scratch n sniff option for this blog post :)

Thank you so much for featuring Feest's soothing blend candle! It's always a pleasure to hear from real people who are using our products.

I'm glad you're planning to reuse the beautiful jar as well!
