Have you been reminiscing about that trip to Yosemite National Park last summer? Does the cold weather have you wishing for the warmth and your yearly trip to Shenandoah National Park? Well don’t worry, now you can at least enjoy the scents of some of America’s favorite parks from your couch, whenever you want, thanks to Good & Well’s National Park Candle Collection.
There are 61 National Parks in the United States, protected areas focusing on the earth’s beauty, geological features, unusual ecosystems and recreational opportunities and Good & Well has recreated the distinct smell of 29 of the parks with a line of soy candles and other products. From Cuyahoga Valley National Park to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to Yellowstone National Park, each handcrafted candle has ingredients that represent the unique scent of that particular area. For example, the Yosemite candle features cedarwood, amber, orange and spice which “transport you to its famed towering vistas of Bridalveil Fall, El Capitan and Half Dome.”
Made in small batches out of Seattle all of the candles are 100 percent vegan, 100 percent eco-friendly and 100 percent recyclable, so there’s no guilt when burning it. These candles are available in two different sizes: a 14-ounce pint for $36 and an eight-ounce half pint for $25. The smaller size will burn for approximately 45 hours, while the larger size you can enjoy for over 80 hours. Availability of sizes differs from candle to candle, with the holidays quickly approaching.
If you’re looking to enjoy the smell of several parks, the company also has a $32 sampler set. Simply pick four of the candles and enjoy two-ounce versions that burn for upwards of 15 hours. Its’ not a bad way to find your favorite.
The National Parks collection is more than just candles, however, featuring hand and body lotion, soaking salts, cabin spray and more – all available through Good & Well’s website. These candles make fun, unique stocking stuffers for the adventurer in your life and should help hold you off until next summer’s trip to that park you’ve been planning to visit.
