OLZ Plumeria Candle Giveaway

I love plumeria blossoms! They are beautifully simple, easy to grow, keep well when picked, reassuringly edible, and wonderfully fragrant! And they look great behind your ear. If you can remember back in "P" week, I had fun making a painted perfumed plumeria bouquet in a pink pinion gear...

The fragrance of plumeria blossoms takes us right back to Africa days. It's the sweet part of the distinctly African combo: cooking fires, dry grass, and hard labor.

So we're excited to host a plumeria candle giveaway. Thank you, Tobey's Scented Candles, for donating two candles on behalf of Operation Love Zimbabwe!

If you're looking for some candles to light your world with, enter our giveaway contest and make sure you check out Tobey's Scented Candles! Here's what Tobey has to say:

Tobey’s Scented Candles is a family run business. My husband and I endeavor to offer an exciting range of highly scented candles for your home. We choose to provide an exciting and convenient way to purchase quality scented candle products at reasonable prices.

We believe these paraffin and beeswax candles offer the best blend of highly refined paraffin and beeswax with lead-free wicks, combined with the finest scents, and provide one of the best scented candles and candle products available today. Our candles are hand-poured for the highest quality candle available and are environmentally friendly for no harmful additives are added to any of our candles.

All of Tobey’s Candles have a timeless elegance, long lasting aroma, excellent burn quality and very importantly, an affordable price. One votive candle will scent an entire room without overpowering one's senses.


The first candle Tobey is donating to Operation Love Zimbabwe is the Plumeria Floating Candle.

The Plumeria Floating Candles have a burn time of 8 hours. They come in four colors and are scented with a floral fragrance oil. They are also available in pink &white, lavender & white and Yellow & white 12/pks. Floating Candles make lovely centerpieces for any special occasion. Plumeria Floating Candles measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 1 1/2".

The second candle, which will go to a second winner, is a Triangle Jar Candle, plumeria scent.

Each 7 oz Triangle Jar Candle burns up to 60 hours. These candles come wrapped in cello bags and tied with matching ribbons . Over 60 scents are available for this size. Each scent has it own unique color. Triangle Jar Candles measure 3" x 3" x 3 1/4".

Tobey says: Have you ever entered a business that is burning a candle that overpowers you and makes your nose twitch? I have. I asked the owner if she would consider purchasing my candles for the fragrance doesn't overpower the senses, it gives a light fragrance which permeates the room and is pleasant to the senses.

To Enter to win one of these candles: All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Please make sure you include an email so I can contact you if you win.
