Place finished candle in the freezer for 4-6 hours, until frozen, overnight is best.
Once frozen, use your tea towel to grip the candle and use the kitchen knife as leverage to “pop” the unused wax out of the candle container. (Make sure the wax and container are completely hard and frozen)
Wash and dry your container and Voila! You are ready you reuse your candle containers!

Fragrance of The Month: March 2014

Fragrance of The Month: Botanical Garden | the white dahliaWhen we think of the month March we can’t help but get eager about spring gardening. Thats why this month we chose our Botanical Garden fragrance from our Fairfax & King Collection by Found Goods Market. This is an enchanting blend of fresh picked herbs, rose petal, lily and green grass. (PLUS how cute are our Teal Stoneware Birds??)

Botanical Garden | the white dahlia

We love this collection because it has such an old-time vintage feel. The entire line is actually inspired by the interesting glass and boxes that would have lined the shelves of a historic apothecary.

This fragrance is available in two styles. Our 3-wick Glass bowl and Boxed Tumbler.

Recycled Glass Bowl | the white dahlia

3-wick Glass Bowl: The beautiful 10oz candle bowl features a thick wall of recycled glass. The bowl is finished off with a rich wax seal and colorful dustcover.

Boxed Tumbler | the white dahlia

Boxed Tumbler: The 13 oz recycled glass tumbler burns for over 80 hours and comes beautifully packaged in a rustic wooden box.

Which style will you try??

Valentines Day Gift Ideas

For some, Valentines Day is stressful; Which flowers should I  buy? Is it too soon for roses? They cost how much ?!!

We at, The White Dahlia would really like to make this holiday less scary and stressful so we can all focus on the true meaning of Valentines Day. Love. Love. and MORE Love! Now, if you don’t have a significant other that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in a little L-O-V-E either; give gifts to family, friends or even take a chance and show that other single cutie what you’ve got to offer (you never know!). Our website has some great options BIG and SMALL!

Red Roses | the white dahliaRed Roses are a classic; but don’t feel you HAVE to get these for your lady – especially if your relationship is new and you’re not sure about sending the wrong message. Get the roses for your wife and that girl you just can’t live without. Know her favorite flower? BONUS if you add it to the rose bouquet!

True Love Tulip & Rose | the white dahia
Simply Calla | the white dahlia You can also get a mixed arrangement like the first image above that has roses in it, but isn’t overpowered with them. Get her flowers that will last a while, like tulips or ranunculus and also be sure to add some fragrance. Or scale it down even more by getting just a small simple bunch of flowers or arrangement, like the one right above, for a new relationship or as an add-on to your additional gifts!

Silver Tin | the white dahlia

Candles make a great gift also! Try our Fragrance of The Month: Black Gardenia, for an intoxicating floral fragrance that anyone is sure to love.

Stoneware Frame | the white dahlia Do you have a favorite picture of you and your sweetheart? Pop it in one of our Stoneware Frames and you’ve got yourself an adorable, thoughtful and easy Valentines Day gift! (and for under $30)

We hope this guide helps make your Valentines Day a little less stressful, now go out there and show your honey some LOVE ❤

These candles are an all natural soy blend wax  that is highly fragranced with florals, fruits, greens and spices. We chose our Monticello Pomegrante fragrance because its airy and sweet with the essence of pomegranate, lemongrass, rose and tart grapefruit! (YUM!)
