DESTINATION: Georgia

Our destination candles are a home favorite, conversation starter, and full of divine fragrances that are inspired by delectable staple recipes! Join us as we go week-by-week through the recipes that started it all…

WEEK ONE: GEORGIA PEACHES

Our Georgia candle is a by far a customer favorite, no matter your location. The creamy peach blend scent is equal parts summery, sweet, and subtle — certainly a must-have for your home during the spring and summer months…also known as peach season. As a Georgia native I can personally vouch for the peach state and tell you that it isn’t some old wives tale but that the peaches in Georgia really are just better! Our recipe box is full of peach recipe favorites but nothing fills a house like the smell of simmering peach syrup. And what do you need peach syrup for? Peach tea!

YOUR FAVORITE BREWING TEA
1. SLICE & SKIN YOUR PEACHES

**DEPENDING ON YOUR PREFERENCE YOU MAY WANT TO STRAIN YOUR SYRUP TO KEEP THE FRUIT FROM GOING INTO YOUR TEA PITCHER. IF SERVING IMMEDIATELY, I DON’T MIND A LITTLE PEACH MINGLING’, BUT IF BEING MADE TO BE STORED I’D OPT TO STRAIN TO KEEP THE PEACH BITS FROM SPOILING.
