About Homesick Candles
HomesickCandles.com is the online home of Homesick Candles, a company that was created in order to help their customers who are far away from home be able to have the scents of home wherever they are.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the creators of Homesick Candles understood that many people move away from home for different reasons but still feel close to the places they originally came from. They decided that creating a candle that has the perfect scent of each state would be able to give people a feeling of home, wherever they may be.
For example, the Hawaii candle has fragrance notes of pineapple, coconut, ocean tides, and cyclamen flowers, while the Kansas candle has fragrance notes that are reminiscent of rain storms, sunflowers, grass, lime, moss, and amber. Each individual state will have specially chosen fragrance notes that are all picked to recreate a scent, feeling, or atmosphere that will make you think of home, wherever that place may be.
Ingredients and Side Effects
The website says that they are “proud to use online the finest materials” for their candles, including natural soy wax and high quality cotton wicks. Their scents are created from real ingredients, and their website says that even their glass containers are made from 100% food grade quality and can be repurposed after being thoroughly washed.
Their website also says that, even though they use real ingredients, their candles are still safe to be used around most people who suffer from allergies, though of course their candles should not be used for any purpose other than being burned for fragrance.
Though there website says that the traditional retail price of these candles is $34.95, it appears as though the price has been lowered to $29.95. It is unclear how long this lowered price will last, and the website does say that customers that need their products shipped to Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and New York will be charged sales tax.
Their website does say that any customer who is not satisfied with their purchase is welcome to request a return or an exchange within the first 30 days of the date of purchase as long as the candle is in the original condition and packaging. Their website says that unless the candle has a manufacturing defect, they cannot accept returns of candles that have been lit.
Customers will need to initiate their return by emailing their Customer Service team and including their order number as well as their reason for return. Homesick Candles will then send you a prepaid return label and a Return Merchandise Authorization.
Their website says that once your order is received and inspected your refund will be processed; if your candle doesn’t arrive, or arrives damaged, they will be unable to offer a refund.

Competitors and Alternatives?
Fans of scented candles are aware that there are more options than most customers can even imagine. This company has taken the specific approach to creating scents that are particular to a specific state, however if a customer has a specific scent that they associate with their home or region, it would likely be very easy to get another scented candle from a different company that offers this scent profile.
