Finding the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift with @GoldCanyon Candles

WINNER of the Gold Canyon Candle is Jennifer Rogers!

When I think of Mother’s Day I think of just ONE day where I can relax and release. A day where I am unbothered by kids and their ridiculous demands. A day where I’m not responsible to feed anyone, or run anyone to their afterschool activities. A day where I can just be me and find myself, if just for a day. Having five kids makes that kinda hard. I have four kids at home and our lives are consumed with on-going activities. So I was glad to receive a beautiful bundle of candles courtesy of Shaneen Scott at Gold Canyon Candles. When I saw the candles I immediately thought about all the wonderful women who were deserving of receiving some soothing candles for Mother’s Day:

  • My Mom Janice
  • My aunt Kathleen
  • My Cousin Symirah
  • My aunt LaVonne

This list could go on to extend to my wonderful friends and hard-working women like Dr. Di-Di St. Louis or Pam Owunta. I got excited and started thinking how wonderful would it be if these women were just able to relax for a day. We all deserve it.

Gold CanyonAnd then I opened up the Gold Canyon catalog and almost lost myself in luxury. They offer candles and so much more.

Gold canyon2Gold Canyon is a local company that was founded in Arizona by Curt and Karen Waisath. 

Shaneen Scott is a distributor for Gold Canyon candles and said when she tried them, she was hooked!

“I found myself burning the candles all the time because I really loved the product. The scent from one candle filled my entire home.  Even my husband and sons like burning them.  I found myself using them so much, I thought why not get a discount so I joined the team.  By becoming a Gold Canyon consultant it allowed me to earn extra money, get a discount and meet new people. The product sells itself.  I’ve been a consultant since 2007 and I love what I do.  When I started Gold Canyon was just doing candles.  Now we have expanded into oils, wickless candles, diffusers, and many more home decor’ items.   Whatever your destiny; Gold Canyon can help make your dreams come true.”

Now I’m hooked and actually thinking about hosting a Gold Canyon Mixer. Because there is one thing for sure– I love candles. I really do. I browsed the website and here are some of my favorite picks. Click the pick to check it out.

    I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to choose and would have to go with my standby scent–something spicy, fall-ish, maybe a bit of apple–but I came across Strudel & Spice CAFÉ… cherry? vanilla? cinnamon? caaaaraaaamel? This is definitely the one!
