Rosy Rings

Ever wonder why we smell so heavenly? We have to give Rosy Rings most of the credit. Those beautiful botanical candles peppered throughout our lovely little shop, not only illuminate and decorate, but also delightfully perfume the air. We're always happy when we have a big supply on hand, we know how much you love them. While Spicy Apple is the perennial favorite, you'll want to see (and sniff) the new Forest, Honey Tobacco, Autumn Quince and Birch Woods. Yum!

Shop online or come in and sniff them for yourself! Find out how you can save up to 45%!

Hand produced in Denver, the folks at Rosy Rings take their candles pretty seriously. Take the Botanical Candles: Turn one over and you can see it's actually two candles. The entire process of pouring, stuffing, repouring, melting the edges, wrapping it and the countless other tasks which take two whole days! And because this point bears repeating: all of this is done by hand. These Botanical candles are just too complex to be mass-produced.

Another reason to love them: Rosy Rings is committed to minimizing its environmental impact wherever possible and supporting organizations devoted to the well being of natural open spaces and wildlife. In addition to recycling all the plastic, metal, glass and cardboard used in its production facility, the company also uses biodegradable shipping popcorn and when possible reuses shipping materials. Rosy Rings is committed to using natural products like beeswax and vegetable waxes. Our Botanical Candles are now poured with a soy wax blend. All container candles are poured with a vegetable wax blend, glass bottles contain 40% recycled glass.
