We Offer the Largest..

.. selection of candle and melt fragrances anywhere in Ohio. Each and every Northern Lights Candle and Melt is made right here in the back of the shop. As candle makers we have always offered a large selection, but now, with over 100 fragrances, we offer more than you will get any where else in the state. Each of our candles has been designed to be burned 6-10 hours a day without getting a large flame and each one MUST be highly fragrant. Out testing ground is the store and the testers are those who come in to shop our decor items. We listen to hear comments about different fragrances burning through out the shop. Those fragrances that repeatedly cause comments are added to our line when testing is done.

Each month we have a half dozen new fragrances to try out. How long does testing last? At the shop we burn 7-8 hours a day. Burning every day, 5 days a week, it will take us about a month to completely burn a test candle down for evaluation. Our candles easily go 115 hours total which is great for you.. but makes the testing phase take time. When a  fragrance is deemed worthy to be added, we order in the fragrance oils in and get busy making the candles and melts. Total time from start to finish is about 5 weeks.

With 100 fragrances you would think we have enough. But I love fragrance, and I have the ability to display 154 unique candle fragrances in my candle room. So, that is the number we are headed for. Do you have a favorite you would like to see us carry? Post it here or stop by and suggest it. Suggestions we are currently looking for are Cherry Lemonade and Vanilla Lime.
