The only answer to dreary, drizzly days is to cozy up with a book, quilt, and hot cup of tea. This delightful blend of relaxing fragrances is the perfect companion for stormy weather. Is there anything better than reading a new book, or a much-loved classic, while a storm pounds away outside? The weather outside might be ferocious, but within the pages of your book, you can be swept away to sunny, magical kingdoms or distant frozen countries. Does a better juxtaposition exist? We think not.
Rain makes for the perfect backdrop to any good reading session. From the soft pitter-patter of raindrops bouncing off your windowpane to the smell of each drop as it hits the ground; rain can be intoxicating, and now you can enjoy it no matter the weather outside. Our Rainy Day Reads candle bottles up everything you love about reading in the rain and brings it to the comfort of your own home; no gloomy days required.
Making Sense With Scents
The smell of rain is a universal pleasure. No matter where you live in the world, you know the comforting scent of rain. Not the sweet-tinged scent of a brewing storm, nor the overly clean petrichor scent that’s left behind after a storm, our Rainy Day Reads perfectly encapsulates the scent of actively falling rain. The telltale scents of fresh rain, ginger, and lavender will now be able to fill your home at a moment’s notice regardless of the time of year or weather outside. With a medium scent strength, the Rainy Day Reads candle is the perfect reading companion.
Like any good literary sidekick, the Rainy Day Reads can last for hours with a bright and shining zeal. Due to its 100% soy composition, the Rainy Day Reads candle burns cleanly. Plus, with its recyclable packing, and sustainable ingredients, this candle is also vegan and green! Well, the candle is actually blue, but you get the idea. Enjoy the scents of nature while burning your Rainy Day Reads candle and then turn around and help nature by either recycling your candle or reusing it for a clever DIY.
Behind The Scents
Our incredible team handcrafts every single one of our book themed candles. All of our candles are made in small batches by hand, so your candle might be slightly different than the image shown above, but we do everything within our power to replicate our candles as precisely as possible.
The Rainy Day Reads candle is available in four unique sizes, 2 oz tins, 4 oz tins, our original 8 oz candles, and tart packages. We’ve found the 2 oz sizes to be perfect for those who want to test out a new scent before committing to a larger size. The 4 oz candle is the perfect gift size, from stocking stuffers to party favors, nothing will please the book lover in your life more than a Frostbeard book themed candle. Next, our 8 oz candle is our original and best selling size variety. This size burns the longest of our three size variations and can burn for hours at a time (within reason). Each container, including the glass jars, aluminum tins, and plastic tart packing is 100% recyclable, as are their accompanying aluminum lids.
Each of the three candle size varieties, plus the tarts, can last for hours. The larger the candle, the longer it’ll burn. But for safety reasons, we recommend that you resist melting your candle all the way down to its base. Discontinue use when only half an inch of wax remains. You can see our full list of safety tips here.
- Trim wick to 1/4" before each use.
- Burn no longer than 2-3 hours at a time.
- After use, cover with lid to reduce soot.
Quality Materials, Responsibly Made
You might be tempted to keep your Rainy Day Reads candle as a desk ornament, or bookend, but we urge you not to. This may surprise you, but our candles were made to be used! We love hearing that people enjoy our unique designs, but we love it even more when someone puts their book inspired candle to work. Take it from us; life is short, use the candle.
As we’ve said, our relaxing Rainy Day Reads candles are made from eco-friendly materials; it’s part of what makes each Frostbeard candle so unique. Our candles are free of animal byproducts, making them cruelty-free and vegan. In addition to the renewable, biodegradable soy wax, each Frostbeard candle contains a lead-free cotton wick, hand-selected dye chips and fragrance oils, and an aluminum lid.
