Dear Diary

Joining Scent and Soil

Happy Monday everyone! If your weekend was anything like mine you probably never wanted it to end, but luckily I’m here to give you a little bit of incentive to get out of bed today. You guessed it… a giveaway!

I’ve had an army of Produce Candles stationed all over my house since I first smelled their Wildflower scent in a local gift shop about a year ago. Handmade with natural soy wax, Produce Candles are inspired by farmer’s markets, and every season they introduce a few limited time only scents that match up with edible produce availability. Just like a handful of fresh cut basil from the garden, these candles are unbelievably fragrant, and I love the way they make my living space smell like a sunday morning market. They also create unexpected scents that you won’t find anywhere else, like Kale, Cilantro, and Radish.

To brighten up your Monday, I’ve teamed up with the “candle farmers” at Produce to give away a limited edition Mint candle. Cool and refreshing, this candle promises to awaken the senses and re-energize your space. All you have to do to win one of your own is:

1. Follow both me and Produce Candles on Instagram

2. Like and and tag three friends in the comment section on my contest photo sometime before Friday (also on Instagram)


// Comment on this blog post and tell me where you’d put your new mint candle.

// Follow me on Twitter and like my Facebook page.

// Same goes for the Produce Twitter and Facebook!

This contest is only open to U.S. and Canadian addresses, and will run until next Monday (June 22). Winner will be announced in the comments section here, and on the original Instagram post!




*Note: Some or all of the items featured in this post were given to me as a gift from the maker, but I only write about products I genuinely adore, I promise!*


  • I’m redecorating my apartment for summer (I embarrassingly still have a few winter decorations out because I haven’t gotten around to taking everything down). The mint candle would be the perfect summer accessory for me to add to my kitchen table next to a bouquet of flowers. I’m already dreaming of its lovely scent.

  • Would love any of these candles to keep cozy in my living room!

  • I’d put my mint candle next to my bed! My kitchen already smells like fresh herbs because I always keep them around so I want to spread the wealth! The smell of mint always makes me feel alert and instantly happy too! Perfect for my safe space.

  • I’ll put it in my bedroom!

  • I would love to add this candle to my arsenal of candles in every room of my house! But this candle would go in my baby blue kitchen where I spend a lot of my time!

  • As a treat to myself (and as I head into turning 30), I’ve given our home bathroom a much needed design facelift. What better place to showcase a lovely mint candle? I can only image it pairs perfectly with a relaxing bubble bath.

    be inspired.

  • I’m so in love with Produce Candles! I’d put the mint scent in my kitchen, but would probably end up moving it around my apartment to smell it everywhere! Following you both on Twitter but am currently not on the Face Space. 😉

  • This would be a most welcome addition to the shelving unit I built solely to house my candle addiction. Who doesn’t love a romantic candlelit bedroom?!

  • I would put this lovely candle on my teak sideboard in the living room. It would look so cute with the warm wood & make the living room smell fresh!
