My favorite time of the year to go camping is when the desert is blooming. It's beautiful, and the aroma of cactus flowers is a fragrance that you just don't smell anywhere else in the country. The flowers are vibrantly glowing with colors so bright they glisten in the sunlight. I could sit in a chair and do nothing but watch these plants bloom for days. It's mesmerizing.
Shown in the photo is the Ocotillo in bloom. On an average day it is simply just a wild looking cactus with a bad attitude. In the spring, it is absolutely beautiful and it smells amazing. We have made lots of joyful memories on these camping trips, and day trips exploring out in the desert. When I smell cactus flowers, it reminds me of riding my four-wheeler in the breeze on a crisp spring day, or reading a book under a tree in the fresh air while enjoying the sounds of nature. It brings a sense of peace and calm just like it does when I am out in the Sonoran Desert.
The Sonoran Desert soy candle was inspired by these experiences. It is made with cactus flower oils, aloe, and topped with visuals from the Sonoran Desert. The Yucca plant represents survival, as it commonly known as a survival plant in the desert. It's nothing to add to your recipe book, in fact, the name describes it quite well (yuck-ugh). The lavender and turquoise (replica) represent the lavender farms and turquoise mines of Cochise County.
Our nontoxic candles are handmade with all-natural soy wax and a blend of natural fragrance oils and pure essential oils. Wild West natural candles contain dried botanicals. Please read the warning label located on the bottom of your product prior to use.
