Weekly Giveaway: Green Illuminations!

Congrats to Audrey~ a.k.a. The Garden Lady, for winning this week's giveaway from The Wooden Bee! Bee will contact you, Audrey, for your shipping info! Thank you to everyone who participated and to Bee for sponsoring the giveaway!

This week we have another perfect giveaway for the summer season~ Two scented 3 oz. candles in recycled beer bottle candle holders from Green Illuminations...Vata and Artemis~




Vata is a great scent that has a bit of floral and a bit of earth. Great for those that want a light summer scent that won't overwhelm your senses. Citrus, sweet, and cool. Artemis is a charming blend of notes that will keep you feeling chill on those sublime summer nights. All candles are made from 100% essential oils and locally sourced soy wax. 3oz. candles burn for approximately 20-24 hours. Our candles come individually boxes and packed in shredded recycled paper. 

Green Illuminations was founded in late 2010. As with many new ventures, this company began as a way to decorate their own home, but what was supposed to be a personal project became Green Illuminations. Originally they began making lanterns, and later they added cork products and candles to their repertoire, expanding their line.

These creations are perfect for your home, office or as that unique gift that your friends and family will remember for years to come. There are plenty of great reasons why you should purchase recycled bottle products and we hope that you, too, are enlightened to be brighter and greener.



All glass products are hand cut and sanded which often leaves them with slight imperfections, making them one of a kind. All candles are hand poured and created from 100% soy wax and essential oils.

As well as selling at many craft fairs, markets and events since beginning just 6 months ago, Green Illuminations have also helped plan centerpieces for wedding receptions using their wine bottle luminaries as well as supplying our wine bottle lanterns as decorations and candles for wedding guest gifts.
