Scent of the Month for April – Gardener’s Therapy

“Sweet April showers do spring May flowers” was written by Thomas Tusser, an English poet and farmer who lived between 1524 and 1580.  Today, we shorten it to “April showers bring May flowers.” Anyone who loves flowers and gardening welcomes April’s showers to prepare the ground for planting, which explains why April would be selected as National Gardening Month. At Wickedly Sent, we created Gardener’s Therapy, a special Scent of the Month for April, to celebrate National Gardening Month, as well as all of the gardeners and gardening clubs that add beauty to the landscape. Think of the fragrant scents of early garden blooms – relaxing lavender, fresh white thyme and sweet geranium – and your mind will conjure the scent of Gardener’s Therapy.  We weave the scents of these essential oils together to create a bouquet of products that includes scented soy candles, natural hand wash, silky hand lotion and luxurious olive oil soap. If you’re looking for a lovely gift for Easter or Passover, or you’re searching for a special present for a friend who’s a gardener, treat her to a Wickedly Sent Gardener’s Therapy Basket, which comes with a Scented Soy Candle, Hand Lotion, Hand Wash, and Olive Oil Soap in the Gardner’s Therapy Scent of the Month.  Not only will she be transported to her garden, but you’ll also be giving a gift that will soothe her tired hands and revitalize her senses once she’s done gardening! During the month of April, all of our Gardeners Therapy products may be purchased for the special discounted price of 25% off retail price. As with all our products, Gardeners Therapy Soap and Candles are made from all natural ingredients, tested on friends, not animals, and carefully created in Canandaigua, NY. Here’s to next month’s...

Wickedly Sent Sets the Table for Spring

At Wickedly Sent, we enjoy setting a table that reflects the season.  After this past long winter – at least we’re hoping it’s past – many of our readers will be looking for ideas to brighten their tables and dinner parties. If you start with a white or pastel colored table cloth, the ideas are endless!  You might: Add a Spring-colored table runner down the center with a bowl of multi-colored fresh-cut Spring flowers in the center. Put a candelabra as the centerpiece, and rather than adding candles, balance brightly-colored Easter eggs where the candles would normally sit.  Add ceramic bunnies to the base for an Easter look. At each place setting, put a mini-vase with a small nosegay of Spring flowers.  Your guests will love the personal touch. Put mirrors in the center with a bowl of fresh-cut flowers and on each of the corners, add one of Wickedly Sent’s Scented Soy Candles. The mirror will reflect the candlelight and add a warm and glowing ambience to the table. Put spring-colored napkins in small cups or baskets and fill with brightly-colored jelly beans at each place setting.  Kids and guests adore this place setting, especially if its mixed with other bright jelly bean colors at the table. Select just one color – yellow, pink, lavender or perhaps blue and choose linens of the same color, then have your flowered centerpiece in hues of the same color.  Select a favorite figurine, ceramic piece or one of Wickedly Sent’s Decorative Pillar Candles to use as the centerpiece and set it on a mirror on the table.  Surround it with loose, fresh cut flowers.  Imagine the candle above surrounded by hydrangea –...

New Look for Scented Soy Candles

At Wickedly Sent, we’re sensitive to design trends, so we’ve changed the look and feel of our Scented Soy Candles! The home decor trends for 2009 showcase bold, vibrant colors and there are several popular looks that have appeared this year.  One is a return to the glamorous “Hollywood Regency” style that allows the bold home decorator to incorporate a fun and eclectic look featuring Neo-Classic, Asian, Baroque and Art Deco pieces.  You’ll see shimmering fabrics, laquered or mirrored furniture, sleek finishes, chinoiserie and bamboo.  In general the lines are sleek and sexy. An alternate trend is the eco-friendly look, focused on the use of natural fibers and organic materials.  You’ll find many pieces with a grass cloth and natural sisal finish. No matter what your taste in home furnishings, our new crystal clear geometric shape candle holders will add elegance to and fit with your decor.  All holders come with our hand-poured scented soy candles made with high quality fragrance oils or essential oils that will infuse your home with your choice of any of the dozens of delightful fragrances.  Soy candles burn longer and cleaner, plus they’re better for the environment. To purchase Wickedly Sent’s new look in Scented Soy Candles, shop our store at 94 South Main Street in Canandaigua or online at Wickedly...
