The Hobbyist - Beach Batch Candle Collection
The Hobbyist - Beach Batch Candle Collection
Beaches in Tofino have something magical about them. We have encapsulated some of that magic in our Beach Batch Candle Collection for you to enjoy long after your surf sessions or sunset walks are over.
The inspiration for our Beach Batch Candle Collection comes from memories and experiences my family and I have created on them. I wanted to share these healing experiences with you through this special candle collection.
It’s what’s inside that counts:
8 ounce | all soy | 50-hour burn
Poured into a reusable rocks glass using paraben and phthalates free fragrance oils, eco-soy wax, and organic cotton wicks.
Chesterman Beach - The Chesterman Beach Candle has a blend of sweet grass, eucalyptus, hemp, and sage - Think green and clean!
Cox Bay - The Cox Bay Candle has aromas of smoked lavender and cocoa. Inspired by the stunningly big open bay where the waves crash hard. The beach is usually pumping with good sets and better surfers. One of my favourite hikes is on the southside; where the views at the top of Cox Bay lookout are stunning for the short hike up. Breathe in the 360 degrees of wild forest, mountain peaks, white caps, and sandy beaches.
Flo Bay - Fir, pine and palo santo come together to embody Flo Bay in a candle. Florencia Bay is nestled in the Pacific Rim National Park between Ucluelet and Tofino. Flo Bay is a family favorite - with all of the fresh air, rounded rocks, tall wind blown trees, mountains of clay and ample sand, it's no wonder!
Mackenzie Beach - Aromas of burnt cedar and smoked vanilla will bring you back to your beach fire from your summer trip to Tofino on Mackenzie Beach.
Tonquin Beach - Tropical aromas of pineapple, coconut, and mango will bring you back to a warm vacation. It will have you throwing on your swimming trunks and cranking the reggae tunes! Tonquin Beach is a smaller beach with heaps of hidden treasure coves. The water and sun is always warmer in this sheltered beach.
Rosie Bay - Named after Rosie Bay, with sweet floral aromas of lavender fields and rose garden are blended together to create an aroma almost magical as Rosie Bay herself. The scent of roses wafts from the candle even when not lit.
Pettinger Point - One of the most picturesque areas that is squeezed between Rosie Bay and Cox Bay. It’s covered in cedar trees and is forever sprayed with sea salt.
Long Beach - Long Beach is a delicate and floral blend of lemon and lavender aromas. This candle promotes total chill much like the beach does. Long Beach is a part of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and is the longest beach on Vancouver Island, stretching for over 16 kilometers. Making it a great place to come and get away from it all. I hope this candle helps you take some of that vibe home with you.
Wick Beach - Sandalwood and citrus come together to create a bright and earthy candle. A go-to in my home.Stubbs Island - Stubbs Island candle is bright and balanced with a blend of yuzu citrus and jasmine flowers. The island is off the coast of Tofino and has a rich Japanese history, so I choose aromas of a similar origin.

Take it off Baby!
When you receive your gorgeous flower bouquet, remove the outer paper wrapping as well as the wet wrap around the stems, which is all compostable and biodegradable.
Start your bouquet off on the right foot with a quick trim! Find a pair of scissors, kitchen shears or even a sharp kitchen knife and trim at least 1/2" off each stem. Pro Tip: aim for a 45° angle. This provides more surface area for the flowers to drink from and prevents the stems from sitting flush to the bottom of the vase (where bacteria can build up). Daily stem trims (or as often as you can remember) will also help to ensure your stems can get a fresh drink as they age!
Water is Life
Your flowers are going to appreciate a drink and to settle into their new home. Fill a vase with cool tap water and pop the bouquet in (after you’ve trimmed the stems of course)!
Pro Tip: change the water daily (or as often as you can possibly remember!) This helps reduce the growth of bacteria in the vase water which will help you to get more bloom life from your bouquet.
