Collection of Three Candles: S'mores, Appalachian Trail, John Muir Trail



"The mountains are calling and I must go." - John Muir 

Every year, the John Muir Trail inspires wanderlust in thousands of people as they travel across the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountain range. For those who are fortunate and brave, the trail offers breathtaking landscapes and gorgeous views. John Muir himself was an avid environmentalist and advocated for the preservation of Yosemite Valley. His words continue to echo throughout the wilderness, his writings well detail the importance of conservation and the beauty of the Earth. 

The JMT candle was created out of admiration for John Muir's legacy and for every thru-hiker who has completed the John Muir Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail. The candle smells of Bergamot, Woods, & Amber. 

If you have completed the John Muir Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail, we would love to hear from you.

Inspired the famous long trail by the same name, Appalachian Trail smells of pine, leaves, and musk. This candle was created out of appreciation for this beautiful trail and its thru-hikers. 

Every year approximately 2400 people thru-hike the 2,200 miles of trail that spans from Georgia to Maine, a feat that deserves some serious recognition. To all the thru-hikers and section hikers out there, rock on! 

If you have completed the Appalachian Trail, we'd love to hear from you!

Candle is in a 4 oz tin. Burn time is ~18 hours. 

Approximately 75% soy and 25% paraffin wax. I use a blended wax for a smoother appearance, longer burn time, and a clean burn. 

I use high quality ingredients to ensure a long lasting burn, high scent throw, and beautiful appearance. Due to the differences in computer screens and because I mix each batch by hand, some color variance will occur.
