Burn Baby Burn: Burn Voyage Candle in Silver Springs

burn+voyage+candle+silver+springs Burn Baby Burn: Burn Voyage Candle in Silver SpringsI don’t get out much. I spend much of my time sitting on my couch, blogging it up. So when I want to indulge myself, but I’m too lazy or exhausted to pamper myself with at-home spa treatments, I simply strike a match and light an aromatic candle.

As I type this, I’m inhaling the clean and soothing scent of Burn Voyage’s Silver Springs Candle. With notes of fresh water, ozone accords, pine, alpine herbs, it’s like there’s a babbling brook running through my living room.

The petite candle packs a punch, burning for 35+ hours. Toss this little luxury in your luggage for a treat when you arrive at your destination. Or take a little trip just sitting on your sofa.
