New Pod Warmers -- Get a FREE POD!

Gold Canyon just continues to get better & better! As we approach the summer months, many people want the great fragrance of a candle without the heat from the flame. Pod Warmers are a great solution & the new ones not only come in great designs but they have a timer that will automatically switch the warmer "off" after your choice of 4, 8, or 12 hours.

These are a must-have item for every house & make a perfect gift for anyone! Plus, they're great for spaces where you can't light a candle (like the office) or for those who don't like to burn candles because of the fire hazard.

Contact me to order yours by May 30, 2009 & get a FREE SCENT POD (your choice of fragrance) to go with it!

Soda Pop Shoppe Candles

These are some of my favorites! In fact, I'm burning a Fizzy Pop candle right now -- and I can smell the carbonation, its amazing! (Oh, and the Really Root Beer is my husband's all time favorite.) So I was so excited when I saw they were bringing them back in June!

As of June 1st, you can order any of our Soda Pop Shoppe candles!

Fizzy Pop
Cherry Lime Rickey
Very Vanilla Cola
Really Root Beer

Check out this flier for all the details & then give me a call or order on my website (

Who knew Vanilla was so complicated?

The vanilla fragrance, by nature, is a subtle & typically universal fragrance. If you're buying a candle for someone as a gift, something in the vanilla family will usually be a good choice. But you should also know that by its very nature, vanilla is not as strong as a musk, floral, baking/spicy, or even fruity fragrance. If you're looking for a really strong fragrance, I would suggest you stay away from a plain vanilla; some combinations (like a birthday cake or sugar cookie) that have those vanilla notes will give you a much stronger fragrance.

Now, the great thing about a vanilla is that it can be burned with almost any other fragrance & produce a pleasing affect. It actually works to tone down fragrances, so if you burn a Cinnamon Vanilla, you'll get the great cinnamon scent but it will be toned down to be less potent than a straight Cinnamon. Get the idea? Vanilla works great this way when burned with baking/spicy, fruit, & even musks! I personally love to burn a vanilla or sugar cookie with my baking/spicy candles since the cinnamons can be too powerful for me at times.

Better Homes & Gardens magazine takes a position on Gold Canyon's Homeology

"Better Homes & Gardens voted Gold Canyon’s Homeology eco-friendly All Purpose Cleaner as one of their favorites based on effectiveness, scent, availability and price." (GC demonstrator newsletter)

Wow! If you haven't tried homeology yet, you're really missing out. All the products work great & smell great with the added assurance of being safe to use in your home. Check out previous posts on "homeology" for all the details or contact me!

Get ready for a "beach bash" with this candle combination!

This scent blend recipe was copied from the newsletter that Gold Canyon sends to demonstrators:

Scent Blending Recipes are carefully selected recipes of individual candles that when burning together, create their own unique, blended scent experience.

To maximize your fragrant experience, use the exact sizes and quantities noted in each recipe – a slight alteration can be like adding salt when you needed sugar.

FIRST: Arrange the candles on a heat-safe surface with the largest in the middle and smaller candles interspersed throughout. For votive and tealight candles, use a holder to protect the surface.

SECOND: Place each candle approximately two inches apart in your arrangement.

THIRD: Light each candle and let the aromas mix for at least 30 minutes to create your new fragrance experience.

Featured Blend:
Beach Bash

· Aroma Gold- Serenity – 10 oz.

· Pineapple Coast Bella – 8 oz.

· Papaya Passion Citronella tealights – 2

· Sparkling Apricot – Spirited

Take a vacation by just closing your eyes. This combination of exotic citrus with a hint of floral extract, creates a soothing, relaxing environment that will turn your home into a tropical getaway.
