Harmony Farm Candles
Erin Hils Shepherd, a member of Piedmont EMC, makes fragranced soy wax candles in her farmhouse kitchen. The candles, made without dyes, have eco-friendly wax and wicks and come in jelly jars for a simple, country look. Soy wax burns more efficiently, longer, with less soot and throws fragrance more strongly than paraffin. Candles range in price from $9 to $12 each, plus shipping. Fragrances available year-round include English Garden, Gardenia, Grapefruit, Green Tea & Lemongrass, Hydrangea, Jasmine, Lavender, Lavender Cucumber Sage, Lilac, Lily of the Valley, Line-Dried Linen, Ocean Breeze, Rose, Sweet Orange, Spring Meadow and Violet. Special seasonal candles — Pumpkin Pie, Mulled Cider and Wintergreen — are available September through January.
