A lot of life is tucked into our everyday moments. A wedding, the birth of a child, a new job or graduation…each an important milestone that deserves to be honored. But if you blink, you’ll miss some of the most significant moments that attract less fanfare. The dawn of a new adventure or the completion of a personal goal. A time of challenged health or mourning a disappointment. Welcoming a new neighbor or showing appreciation for the people who pour into our families (we’re looking at you, teachers!). These are the moments that truly shape us.
Flowers are lovely (if fleeting), and we’re never one to turn down a well-intentioned casserole. But we created Good Thoughts Candles for true gift-giving heroes! These innovative expressions of support and encouragement will- quite literally- illuminate the path for those you’re holding close in thought. We fill gorgeous, custom ceramic vessels with our signature coconut and soy wax blend infused with sophisticated fragrances. But the magic lies at the bottom…
Embedded within each candle is a white quartz stone engraved with the Amani flower design and a word expressing an uplifting message. As the candle burns, the stone is slowly revealed. The surprise lingers long after the candle is exhausted- carry that stone in your pocket or place it on a desk or dresser as a constant reminder of support, encouragement, and gratitude. We invite you to gently wash and repurpose the ceramic cup once the candle has fully burned. Designed to last, it makes a lovely succulent planter, makeup brush holder, or pencil cup for your desk. Long after the flowers have faded, memories of your thoughtfulness will linger.
With a library of eight signature fragrances, Good Thoughts Candles are always the perfect gift!
Balance (Black Tea & Bergamot): When you need a little reminder to slow down. Ideal for parents, those starting a new job, or anyone making a conscious effort to live more mindfully. The scent is a best-seller: clean, crisp black tea with subtle hints of bergamot orange, jasmine, lavender, and light rose. A base consisting of musk and woody nuances complete this blend.
Courage (Rosemary Mint): When the struggle is all-too-real, send a reminder to live life fearlessly. The scent profile is a soft sweet mint with light camphorous rosemary.
Discover (Sandalwood & Vanilla): Need a reminder to challenge yourself or try something new? This candle is perfect for graduates or anyone ready for more- more travel, more adventure, more life! This complex scent is beloved for its spicy blend of mandarin leaf, agave nectar, and African lotis which are perfectly paired with cardamom, nutmeg, and black peppercorn. The dry base notes of sandalwood, patchouli, and tonka bean hold it all together.
Dream (Southern Peach): Designed for those on the cusp of a new adventure or anyone looking to shake up their lives, Dream is ideal for new graduates, new parents, moving into a new home, or your friend that’s launching a business. Our signature peach fragrance; fresh and juicy with a tropical twist and notes of white florals. Perfect for anyone who loves Georgia peaches.
Faith (Lavender): This soothing candle offers comfort in spades, as it reminds us to trust the process- whether that’s a Higher Power or our own intuition. We love giving this one to newly married couples, those navigating a health challenge, and anyone diving deeper into a spiritual journey. Fragranced with classic, elegant lavender.
Gratitude (Milk & Honey): It’s true- when you count your blessings, gratitude multiplies. Show your appreciation to teachers, friends, co-workers, and more with this elegant gift that reflects that life is always better when done together! The scent is sweet almonds with a touch of creamy vanilla.
Love (Pink Grapefruit): Love is the life force that binds us all together. Perfect for weddings, birthdays, Mother's Day or just because, one whiff and you’ll know why this is a bestseller. Clean, fresh, and fruity combination of grapefruit with a hint of orange.
Purpose (Oak & Leather): When life feels stale or we’re gearing up for a big pivot, it’s time to re-engage with our purpose. We invite you to support your loved ones as they start a new job, expand their family, or reconnect with their spark. A sophisticated and complex blend of oak, leather, and vanilla.
Set of 8 Stones (No Candle): Love the sentiment but don’t need the candle? We’re happy to tuck a full set of eight stones (one of each) into a small organza bag without the accompanying candle or box. Ideal for giving yourself-or others- a daily or weekly area of focus.
