Sometimes, it’s the simple things that really make a living space feel like home – especially during the holidays. You can put up as many decorations as you can get your hands on, and in the end, one of the best ways to create that cozy holiday vibe is with the most basic item you can imagine: a scented candle.
Here at Texan 26, we’ve curated a list of some of the best candle shops in Austin. Check these out for your holiday needs.
Where Can I Find the Most Elegant Scented Candles in Austin?
Head over to Slow North, a company founded by Jon and Michelle Simmons, who wanted to create environmentally-friendly, safe candles that didn’t contain mystery ingredients or synthetic chemicals. Their candles are made from soy wax, which is more sustainable and healthier than paraffin and essential oils. And their modern packaging will bring a sleek, elegant look to your décor. They currently have two seasonal scents: Merry + Bright, a blend of evergreen and citrus notes, and Cheer, a vigorous blend of cinnamon, cypress, and peppermint.
I’m More on the Quirky Side. Where Can I Find Funky Candles?
If you want something a little funky, then check out Luna Tigre. With scents like Arugula, Tomato, and Magic Carpet Ride, you can’t go wrong with this line. Owners Jill and Dan Patton use the best ingredients for their candles, including soy wax, high quality fragrance oils, and cotton paper core wicks. For the holidays, try their Leather & Vanilla, Bourbon & Tobacco, or Evergreen & Firewood. You can find this line at local retailers, including Royal Blue Grocery, Wild About Music, Austin Rocks, Whole Foods Market, and Dia’s Market, just to name a few.
