Love the smell of this candle and everytime someone walked in my house they would ask what's that smell it's amazing

A fragrance so delicious you could eat it! That's what we like to hear. ;)
Kalamazoo Candle STILL GREAT

We have been purchasing these candles for the last 5 - 6 years and they have always been of the highest quality and they are still the great candles. We would recommend for anyone.

Jack, thanks so much for your support since day 1! It's people like you who have made us into what we are today. :)

I love Kalamazoo. I love this company. The store itself is great and you can even make your own! I love that the products are as natural as can be and the company is focused on sustainability. I love the scents! Balsam & Cedar is my all time favorite. I ordered three this holiday season online. (Not my first purchase from them) I received them in ONE day. Sadly, one of the glass jars was broken en route. I messaged them and they responded immediately. Apologized and sent me a new one! Best customer service ever! I am not affiliated with them, they did not give me anything to write this. I am just one happy customer :)

Holy smokes, Erica, you just BLEW us away with that review! Thank you so much for sharing your love for Kalamazoo Candle Company; we love to hear how we're doing and appreciate it so much! :)

Love the candles! Arrived quickly and when I called to say one broke in shipping I was greeted with a friendly voice on the phone and they shipped me a replacement right away! Will definitely continue to use Kalamazoo Candle! This was also a fundraiser for my nephew's sailing team!!

We're happy to be able to replace your broken candle and to hear that you enjoy them! Thank you for supporting your nephew's fundraiser, too! :)

Fun Fact #1: The word "picnic" comes from the French phrase  pique un niche. 

Pique = to pick a place.

Niche = an isolated spot (or nest) where you could enjoy a meal together with your favorite people, away from the distractions & demands of general communal life.

Pique un niche morphed into pique-nique, which became an official French word shortly after.


Fun Fact #2: Today is National Picnic Day.

To be perfectly honest, the only thing better than a sunny spring day is spending that sunny spring day on a blanket with your favorite people and your favorite foods. 


Fun Fact #3: No picnic is complete without a fresh salad.

(Bonus points if your salad includes some zesty herbal goodness.)  
That said, it makes sense for us to feature Basil Leaf today. If you haven't tried this delicious fragrance, you need to.  

Fresh basil pairs beautifully with ripe tomato leaf and watercress in this delicately complex spring fragrance, softened by sweet jasmine petals and finishing with savory notes of clove and fennel. (Yes, it's THAT good.)

We encourage you to get outside and discover the joys of eating al fresco as well!  

Here are some fun tips from our friends at Western Michigan University* on how you can enjoy spring/summertime picnics in the most environmentally-conscious way.

1. Avoid bugs naturally with DIY natural bug repellent “candles.”

We love this tutorial from Shared.   (hint hint... you can even repurpose your Kalamazoo Candle jars for this one!)
