Yellow Rose Gifts - soy candle review/giveaway

I have recently had the pleasure of working with a great company Yellow Rose Gifts, Company.

About the company:
We carry 100% soy wax, premium scented candles, bath salts, salt glows, sugar scrubs and much more!

We are a family owned and operated business that takes pride in making our handpoured candles and
bath/body line. All of our products in our bath/body line are made from Natural ingredients. We do
use essential oils, body safe fragrances and body safe coloring in our products.

We make all of our candles and bath/body products in small batches to ensure freshness and quality.
Only the finest quality ingredients are used in our candles and bath/body products!

We keep our packaging plain and simple so that we can purchase higher quality ingredients for our

We also keep our products reasonably priced so that our customers can achieve and enjoy a high
quality "spa experience" in the privacy of their own homes.

My thoughts:
I received the 6 oz. Roman Spa candle from the luxury Spa Collection. The first thing I noticed when I lit the candle is that you can smell it immediately. This is a picture of the candle burning... pretty huh! I have never burned a soy candle before so I was impressed at the long lasting of the scent. Even after the candle was put out you could still smell it all over the house. I love a candle that you can actually smell because even the more expensive candles do not have a lasting fragrance to them.
I also love the way the candle burns. The whole thing burns evenly so that when you put it out, it is still even instead of having a hole where the wick is which I hate because then it makes it hard to light them again.

This company also offers a great fundraiser. In fact, I am in the process of getting things together for our church youth to do a fundraiser with Yellow Rose Gifts. If you are looking for a fundraiser for your group or organization, check out Yellow Rose Gifts Fundraising.

Now for the fun part...

Way too far behind

I really hate it when I have too many things going on at one time and I get stressed out. That is what has happened lately...I have been so busy and it does not seem to be slowing down any time soon.
