Smell is the sense that is most closely tied to our memories and experiences. Homesick candles aim to capture these scents and let you take that feeling of home with you wherever you are. Crafted from soy and made in the USA, they've created candles for all 50 states as well as a handful of the most popular cities. Take Oregon for example: "Like a breakfast in the great forests of Oregon, this fragrance is reminiscent of maple, pears, and roasted almonds layered over a complex base of fir needles, pine, sandalwood, and rich cedar." Mmm. These make a great gift for a hometown friend or family member or for yourself when feeling a little homesick.
