Glow & Grow

Close your eyes, breathe deep, and be transported to a garden dense with vine-ripened tomatoes and dusty sommerset thyme with these botanical soy candles. Redolent with the rich scents of popular herbs and veggies, these lovely candles pack a powerful punch of aroma since they're made from 100% domestically-grown soy, a biodegradable and renewable resource that burns longer and cleaner than paraffin. After these delicious scents have filled your home with their earthy fragrances for 60 hours, the elegant packaging carries with it another treat: the boxes and petite paper discs that protect the candles' surfaces are infused with seeds. After soaking the packaging and burying it beneath a layer of soil, a patch of brandywine tomatoes and garden thyme will sprout in just a few weeks. Made in New York.

Sold individually.

      Comments about PLANT THE PACKAGING HERB AND VEGGIE CANDLES:

      I love the idea of this candle/seed combination. I purchased the tomato candle as a gift and personally do not like the scent of the candle. I think it's a little harsh smelling but have not burned it yet so maybe it will smell better when burning. I am definitely going to buy this product again because I want to smell the other scents!

                a Christmas gift for my green-thumbed sister. the idea of a tomato scented candle just made me laugh. I thought it would just smell awful- but I was so wrong!! I love to smell fresh picked tomatoes and this candle smells just like that!! I've contemplated keeping it for myself... I still haven't decided. :)

                      I purchased this for my mother and she absolutely loved it! She loves candles, she loves gardening and tomatoes is one of my favorite food items. So it truly was the perfect gift. She was very excited when she opened it and appreciated it's uniqueness. Very happy with the purchase and highly recommend it for anyone who is considering it.
