Patchouli, Bergamot and Sandalwood.

Our proprietary vegetable wax is always clean burning inside both of our luxurious glass jars, creating an intoxicating fragrance and glow. 

In this year of our LGBTQ+ history, momentum was growing from the Black Cat Demonstration and when Police raided the Stonewall Inn in New York City on June 28, 1969, sustained protests and demonstrations immediately begin. These events are widely considered to be the tipping point for the gay rights movement and the organized fight for the LGBT community in the United States. This year also saw national distribution for The Advocate. It is the oldest continuing LGBT publication, originally published by the activist group Personal Rights in Defense and Education (PRIDE), as a local newsletter named "Advocate" in Los Angeles.

#OurHistoryCollection is a project designed to give back. Each candle in the line represents an important year in LGBTQ+ History. As with all Baxter Manor Candles, this collection is created with the best ingredients we could find. Plus we are doing something a bit different, more labor intensive (a labor of love)... each candle is individually produced - one-at-a-time. This is to ensure the very best quality. We continue to use 100% Vegetable Wax (soy wax that is sustainably grown locally here in the U.S.), and our fragrances are phthalate free and non-toxic, which produce a candle that smells amazing and lasts a really long time.
