Artist #2: SimpleScentsByKeisha


How did you start making candles?

As a kid I grew up around candles. My mom always had one lit in every room of our house. I remember going to candle shops all the time and I would get these horrible allergic reactions from smelling too many candles! (Luckily that doesn't happen anymore). As I grew older I followed in my mother's footsteps and quickly became obsessed with candles. One day my dad jokingly told me that I should start making my own, so I did and I've been making candles ever since! I love it!

What is your favorite scent?

My absolute favorite scent is Jamaica Me Crazy. I love spending time in the sun and this scent makes me feel like I'm sunbathing on the beach! It's amazing how candles can take you places. :)

About myself

I'm a twenty-something almost-graduated music education student/songbird from St. Cloud, MN. Aside from music and singing, I love art, words, and travelling to new places. My candles and I share a tiny, little one-bedroom apartment. It's cozy and it always smells amazing!

What is SimpleScentsByKeisha offering to my readers?  Three of her  8 oz candles, plus if you can’t wait to purchase one of her candles you can use her coupon code GIVEAWAY25 to received 25% off you next order!
