1859 Collection Candles
As we continue to restock the shelves with our exclusive 1859 Collection of small batch soy candles I thought I would take a moment to share with you the inspiration for where it all started.
At the time I was working on my plans for opening Rescued Living and parking the bus, I knew I wanted a candle collection unique to RL. One that was thoughtful and inspired memories. My daughter McKenzie has always favored the wonderful scent you smell upon entering Anthropology and the Capri Blue Volcano candle they stock. When talking with my dear friend who pours candles locally I knew regardless of which direction I went, that particular scent was to be the jumping off point.
With poured candles in hand, naming and branding was next. I wanted the name of this particular candle to be a respectful nod to its inspiration though pertinent to Oregon and unique to Rescued Living. Volcano…Oregon…Mazama it was!
Trivia: Mount Mazama is a complex volcano cluster that was destroyed in a major eruption 7,700 years ago in Klamath County, Oregon. What remains from this cataclysmic event is now iconically known as Crater Lake.
Once the first candle was named, McKenzie and I decided to create a collection based upon locations in Oregon and scents that inspire memories from their namesakes.
To date we have a dozen candles named to this collection:
