The first day of autumn--September 22, 2009.

The first day of autumn--September 22, 2009.

Isle of Candles has announced five new soy lotion candle scents for the autumn season, which began today, September 22, 2009. This year’s fall fragrances are: Apple Orchard, Pear, Rosemary, Sweet Spice and Oatmeal Cookie.

“When the weather turns a little cooler, we like to hand pour candles with fragrances that make you think of autumn,” says Kathy Miller, Isle of Candles owner. “We think of warm cookies straight from the oven, fresh apples and pears, and the sweet spice of Grandma’s baking. We added the Rosemary fragrance because we received so many requests for this fragrant herbal scent.”

These five scents will be available through the fall season, in addition to the 40 fragrances of soy lotion candles Isle of Candles offers year-round. Isle of Candles is a full-service candle store and factory in the Pawleys Island Hammock Shops.

To use the soy candles as a luxurious lotion, simply burn the candle until the pool of soy reaches the container’s edge. Then extinguish the flame and safely dip a finger into the melted soy oil. The soy lotion leaves skin feeling silky smooth. Naturally rich in vitamin E, Isle of Candles’ soy lotion candles are natural skin moisturizers and have been known to relieve eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and insect bites and diminish the appearance of scars.

Soy candles burn longer, cleaner and cooler than regular paraffin wax candles. They are good for the environment and Isle of Candles’ soy lotion candles are good for use on your skin.

–from the National Grandparents Day Web site.

“The impetus for a National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day.”
