The Perfect Holiday Gift


I am really excited to announce that I have turned a hobby into something bigger. I have made scented candles since a very long time, and now have decided to pursue it. Cinnamon is the perfect scent for the holidays, whether its on Apple or A hot cup of cocoa, so imagine your room fragrant with it. These candle should burn for a whole 30-35 hours. Make it for yourself or gift it to someone.

I sell my candles under Candles by the Muse. The link is at the end of the post! Enjoy
