Hiraeth Candles: Scents of the West

(2 customer reviews)


Hiraeth is a Welsh word to describe the feeling of longing for a home that never was, or to which you cannot return. The nostalgia and yearning for the places of your past.

Inspired by my travels throughout the American West, I decided to create a line of candles that captures the scent essence of each place.

From the forested mountains of Alaska to the tropical breeze of Hawaii to the desert cacti and baking sun of the Southwest desert, each Hiraeth Candle will transport you far away – from the comfort of your home.

So whether you’re planning a trip to one of these places or reminiscing fondly on a past adventure, light a Hiraeth Candle to explore the world.

This 3oz candle has an expected 15-20 hours of burn time. If you would like to request a custom, larger candle, please contact me.

    My parents love this candle and the tropical vibes it evokes! Thanks, Valerie, for making these for all of us to share!

    These candles were the perfect gift! My parents were thrilled to get something from me, and they love the fresh smell of trees. Just in time for Christmas, so they can burn this and casually pretend that they have a real Christmas tree, not a fake one.

    From two parents who are picky about scents, these candles get the seal of approval 🙌
