Modern Light Candles: Review and Giveaway

With a son that plays sports year round, my laundry room gets a lot of use.  I am neurotic about getting his uniforms washed the second he takes them off, and his equipment bags emptied and hung up to air out the minute he gets in the door.  Even so, the laundry room can sometimes smell like something other than clean, fresh laundry.   I always seem to have a candle burning somewhere when we are home, so I was very excited recently to try out a soy-based candle from Modern Light.

Why soy?  From the website:  “As a highly renewable resource, using soy is not only the responsible thing to do, but produces a superior product that is better for the environment.”  Modern Light Candles come in six highly scented choices and in a convenient 9 ounce size that burns for 50 hours.   I received Fresh Cut Grass and was impressed with the sleek packaging that would make an impressive gift.  I put the candle in our kitchen and was immediately impressed with how it provided a clean, fresh scent throughout the house….even detectable in the sometimes scary laundry room!    Also impressive:  no yucky black smoke rising from the burning wick, which has sometimes been an issue with other candles I have used.   The candles are neutral in color as well, so you don’t have a brightly colored jar screaming at you from the countertop.

Modern Light Candles would make a fantastic gift to anyone…with Mother’s Day right around the corner, it might be perfect for Mom, or as a happy to yourself!
