Creative Energy Candles.

While on the cruise, Cameron and I met a nice man named Todd at the craps table in the casino. The next day, we ran into him again while laying out by the fun slides. We got to talking and found out that he is the head diving coach for USC! He also mentioned that his wife started a company called Creative Energy Candles. I just remembered to Google the company the other day and was instantly intriqued by these candles!

Description from their Facebook page:

"The Creative Energy Candle is a 2-in-1 candle. When burned, it melts to create a beautiful scent, as well as a healthy body lotion that’s suitable for skin.

Our candles are 100% all-natural. Organic cotton wicks, soybean wax and certified organic extra virgin coconut oil are non-toxic, making this “green candle” safe for you and the environment.

Our soybean wax is dermatologist-tested, FDA-approved and Kosher-certified. A healthy combination of vitamins A, E and K provide minerals and antioxidant properties. This candle not only softens the skin, but promotes healing and gives skin a more youthful, healthy appearance.

Creative Energy Candles have a great hot and cold throw, and are hand-poured in this chic, 3” heavy base square glass - making pouring wax into the palm of your hand a cinch.

This square, heavy base glass holds nine ounces of wax and burns twice as long as regular candles, up to 55 hours.

With a marketing and advertising background, I have seen how much paper is wasted in package design. That’s why instead of traditional boxes, our packaging is made of 100% recyclable wrap sleeves, minimizing waste and providing a much greener alternative to packaging."

The candles currently come in six scents.

Garden of Eden
[The best seller. A romantic classic with a blend of light fruit, citrus and florals.]

Hannah Lily, Rose and Grapefruit
[A clean fragrance with touch of fresh lily, crisp white grapefruit and a touch of rose.]

Citrus Basil and Wild Mint
[An energizing scent with a contemporary blend of bright citrus and fresh herbs.]

Peppermint and Eucalyptus
[The oils in the peppermint and eucalyptus give the skin a cooling, tingling sensation.]

French Fig and Amber
[Blends of fresh figs with a hint of floral, and a touch of amber. ]

Mountain Grove
[Warm vanilla sandalwood and a hint of patchouli.]

At $20 a candle, these would be a perfect Christmas gift for someone who you have no idea what to get them! :) (Never too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts!)


  1. Ahhh, I love this idea! My best friend would die over these--I'm bookmarking this post, so I don't forget to get her one for Christmas!

  2. oooh, my mom loves candles, I might have to check these out!

  3. There is a store in Georgetown that also does that candle to lotion thing. Pretty neat idea!
