Smells Like: Clean, Clear Water + Cedar + Wild Ginger + New Buds
Each candle aroma gains inspiration from one of the many full moons in a year. Like the changing seasons and celebrations marked on the western calendar year, the lunar cycle offers a plethora of agricultural, energetic, ritualistic, symbolic, and natural cycles to draw from. The subtle blend of aromatic knowledge, cultural customs and the deep winding roads of folklore, mixed with a wild imagination makes for evocative scents to tickle all your senses.
"The blends have gone off on a small deer trail for the Plant Ally. I felt inspired by the holistic relationship with the Earth and the plants that connect us all. With this, rather than focusing solely on the full moon lore, I took geography and ecology into consideration. These blends are focused on the place, and the plant that most speaks to me, and hopefully you." -Karmen, Moon Candles
Moon Candle: White River:
An ancient place of heritage, I’ve walked the animal tracks through these forests. White river is where the animals come to commune. The scent is a blend of clean water, deep rooted cedar, Wild ginger and a warmth of small budding bushes. Going with the flow of the river and the hints of mineral give you a sense of purity and peace.
The story of Karmen Ohme & Moon Candles:
The creator, Karmen Ohme was born and raised in the Wenatchee Valley. Her heritage is of a long line of nature driven enthusiasts who instilled a deep and wild love for all things flora and fauna. On the other side of her family, lore has it that she is descended of a famed London perfumist by the name of Penhaligon...She relates to the world around her through all senses- and the olfactory is often her tool of choice! Growing up in an orchardist farm in the Basin Valley, she ventured to the bustling streets of L.A., to the mountains of North Carolina and to the rich green of Western Washington. Leavenworth, the little village at the base of the eastern Cascade Mountains is where she calls home.
“I like to imagine we all have been captivated by the glow of the moon. When I was a little girl I would sneak quiet out into the night to stare at the moon and listen to the singing frogs. I would get lost in her. In the best way! Somehow, she made me feel innately connected to the world. Every single part!” -Karmen, Moon Candles
