Depress Me Not Candles #Valentines2023

Have I told you how much I love candles? I mean, I have an obsession with them. To burn, to smell, to decorate. Any kind. But when I find a brand I love, I stick with it! And when there is a story behind it, all the better - especially if it resonates with me, and this brand certainly does!

Depress Me Not Candles is a great company where a portion of the proceeds are donated to the National Alliance of Mental Illness and the Vision House, a transitional home for homeless families with children in the creator's home city in Renton, Washington. Divina makes handmade candles with all the love in her heart and attention and is designed for anyone that is battling with depression or anxiety. The candles are a reminder that there is still beauty and love in the world and that you are not alone. She chose this line of business as she herself has previously struggled with depression due to an abusive relationship and she would like to help others feel a little less alone during their down moments. So she asks customer's to light her candles and do what makes you happy.
I got a few of the candles, and let me just say I am in love. They are not only cute and artsy - each candle has it's own design on the jar, but the inside - beyond the tantalizing scents, it is gorgeous. There are flowers embedded in the wax, and they last all the way through the entire burning of the candle, so every time you look at the candle, you see these beautiful floating flowers! The inside of the lid has a message for you. Makes me smile every time I see it. These are the kind of candle jars you keep afterwards! And, the burn time is average 40 hours, but I have burned mine for a full 8 hour work day for almost 2 weeks when I work at home and it is still going. So they last quite a long time - and the scent. Oh lord! So soft, so nice. Of course they are all different, but the current one I am burning is Nose In A Book, and it is hard to describe but so lovely. The description is: flora, French lavender, Egyptian amber, black myrrh, tonka bean, Egyptian musk, sage, coconut and apricot.
And of course, the candles are perfect gifts for all year long - but Valentine's Day is coming - super fast! I like the Truth Or Dare - the pineapple sage, bamboo and cucumber mix.  I am a fan for life and have just ordered some more candles. I can't help it! These are the real deal and I love them! And I made a custom candle too! So cool! I cannot wait for that to come! The art is custom - You choose what scents you’d like and what color of jar they’d look right at home in – Depress Me Not does the rest.
