My friend Xochi and her husband Chris recently created a candle company called Inés Co. Their mission is to create a better world through their eco-friendly products. In addition they create candles with the environment on the forefront of their minds. Its so exciting to see my friends creating conscious candles. I wholeheartedly support their mission of creating sustainable candles made with love for a better world.

Right now Inés has two candles. Orange + Clove and Frankincense + Tangerine. I got to try their Orange + Clove candle. At first I was a little hesitant about orange and clove. Its certainly not a typical scent I see when browsing the candle section. Nevertheless, I was surprised how much I loved this candle. It has a strong clove scent but it works perfectly with the orange. Its such a fresh and relaxing scent. This candle also came with a little care card that is made out of printable seed paper, so I can plant it and grow some wildflowers. I will say that the burn time on this candle is on the shorter side. I did not measure it from the beginning so I unfortunately don't have the numbers but after 3-4 hours there is a considerable amount of wax gone which is fine by me because I tend to burn candles for long periods.

Before you know it Chanel Oberlin will be crucifying me for blogging about candles. I love candles though! My favorite scents are peppermint, lilac, and grapefruit. I need to up my candle game and buy some tools like a wick trimmer, etc. 

 Who wants a Inés x JMC collab? What kind of candle would you like to see? I would love to create a grapefruit candle!

Also hello this photo is my FAVORITE product photo that has ever been taken on JMC and we've been out here hustling since 2k12! I am so grateful for Brooke who helped me create this beautiful shot.
