Reduce, Reuse & RELAX with FlashPoint Candles {Giveaway & Review}

Want elegant, classy decor that fills your house with warm light, and a calming scent?

Meet FlashPoint Candle.





You can't tell by the photo, but this 9" candle is huge.  It easily could become the focal point on a dining room table or set the scene for your outdoor patio furniture.

The candle itself is a soy blend wax, made in the USA and the containers are one-of-a-kind.  Each bowl is hand-dipped, multiple times in a glaze to create a beautiful crazed (that old time crackling effect) finish.    

FlashPoint Candle sent me one of their lovely selections, Saxon in Leaf Green with a Citrus Blossom scent to try in my home.

Saxon in Leaf (Citrus Blossom)

It's been awhile since I've fallen in love with a candle, both for it's scent AND appearance, but I'm smitten.  I'm a sucker for unique, one-of-a-kind pottery, and this candle delivers.  

The photos above just don't do it justice. An intricate web of colors, cracks and glaze is highlighted each time you light a wick - and the citrus blossom scent is refreshing and sensual.





I'm all about re-purposing, recycling and reusing whenever possible.  This gorgeous candle comes in a beautiful hand-poured ceramic bowl that could be used and reused in so many ways:

* * * 

As a "cooler" to hold your beverages during an outdoor party...


Or, as a floating candle centerpiece... 



I can think of so many uses for the gorgeous bowl after you've enjoyed your candle to the last drop!  So at $45.00 - this is a candle, or gift that keeps on giving!

The FlashPoint Candles come in a plastic covered, and ribbon tied package that is perfect for gift giving.



So, give away!
