If you are a Lincoln, NE native the odds that your nose has been blessed by the amazing scents of Wax Buffalo candles is fairly good. If you haven't had a chance to smell the soy wax goodness that Wax Buffalo offers, well I suggest you get on that right away.
Wax Buffalo candles are created with pure soy, with fine phthalate free essential and fragrance oils, poured over a clean burning cotton wick. The scents are curated from stories and memories, of Wax Buffalo creator, Alicia. Scent is a powerful thing for all of us, and those adventures and memories are a part of what makes these candles special. Don't just take my word for it, go experience these candles for yourself. You can order candles, find local stockists, and learn more about Wax Buffalo on their website.
Last spring, I had the pleasure of working with Alicia to come up with designs for her 'Brave' gift set. The gift set included her dreamy Hummingbird scent (think florals + a hint of citrus) in candle and diffuser form. It also included a sweet note with an ode to brave souls that really hits you in all the right places.
Alicia wanted a gift set that would be perfect to give new moms, old moms, friends starting new adventures, graduates, newlyweds, or anyone who needed to be reminded of the brave soul that they are. We wanted this gift set to be feminine and sweet, paired with brave and affirming words. The color scheme we went with is the perfect pinky peach. To go with the feminine aesthetic I created a hand-drawn hummingbird figure and flowers to go on the diffuser jars, candle lids and the "Dear Brave Soul" card that was a part of the set.
The Brave Box is such a special gift, and the "Dear Brave Soul" card is a really beautiful addition. Everyone will enjoy all Wax Buffalo goodness, but the card really makes this special, and hits the heart of whoever receives this gift of love. Alicia crafted the message, and made sure it had a home worthy of it's message on the card. Below is an excerpt from the message on the card to give you a taste of the powerful, and affirming words.
I loved working with Alicia to help her create something magical. I loved designing such sweet feminine details to help the packaging for this gift set come to life. Each piece of the design work was intentional and created in a way to love and encourage the customer who ultimately purchase this set. I love seeing beautiful designs like this come together in a way that is better than imagined.
If you are interested in these gift sets a "little hummingbird" told me they might be making a comeback this spring. Follow Wax Buffalo on instagram, or head to their website to see what local events might have these sweet boxes.
