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!

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.
