NOTES | This is a 9oz jar made with all-natural soy wax. Soy wax is eco-friendly and burns cleaner than other waxes. It is also easy to clean in cases of accidental spills or if you should wish to keep the jar! Each candle comes with a resealable lid.
Please note that some frosting may occur. This is perfectly normal for soy candles and does not affect the scent or burn time. Frosting is merely an indicator of natural soy wax.
Each candle is also made in small batches so there may be very minor variations in color or scent.
** This listing is for one 9oz jar, complimentary bookmark also included with candle details & candle care tips. Any other books/props/items used in the featured photo are purely for aesthetics and are not a part of this sale. **

I feel like I’m out in a rainy, enchanted forest when I burn this.
Out of the four Raven Cycle scents (Manibus, Henrietta, Cabeswater, Gansey) it’s not my favorite, but it’s still smells really good!

Smells just like a meadow after a rain storm! It’s not too sweet, not too earthy, it’s perfectly balanced for what it represents! Exactly what I pictured it would smell like from the books.

This is one of my favorites. It’s a great fresh/herbal smell for your home.
I have to say that when I unscrewed the lid I was a little apprehensive about the scent but when I lit the candle everything came together. I could imagine how I was enjoying lying outside on freshly cut lawn in the sun. It’s fresh and the scent so comfortable. Not overpowering. Just perfect.

This is definitely a lighter, more gentle woodsy scent than Henrietta, for comparison’s sake. That being said, I still find this one so nice to burn, especially in the bathroom or kitchen – places where you don’t want some overpowering scent that’s way too strong. I really like that it’s more subtle, but still has that distinct rainy meadow vibe.

My friends like the lavender scent, but I wasn’t too sure this would work for them, but they love it!
