When I was 16 I went to Germany over Thanksgiving break. Being of German descent, I grew up with quite a few German traditions, but I wasn’t prepared for just how much Germans love Christmastime! There were pop up shops lining the streets and it was truly one of the most magical places I’ve ever seen! Lubkuhken is one of the traditional German Christmas cookies we enjoyed during our trip and I wanted to share that with all of you! If you love Gingerbread – you’ll love this!
Fresh out of the kitchen goodness! As an ode to my German heritage, this is one of the best! Starting off with a kick of ginger and butter, blended with the nostalgic holiday spices cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Molasses, vanilla and sugar base notes round our this delicious and delightfully sweet fragrance!
Dirt Road Candle Co. candles are hand poured in small batches in Lewis, Iowa. We use pure, renewable, American grown soy wax infused with fragrances that are free of paraben & phthalate free fragrances. They are the cleanest non-toxic candles on the market! Variations in the look and texture of the wax will vary from candle to candle. These differences are not considered defects nor will they affect how your candle burns.
Allow your candle to reach a full melt pool during every burn. This is where the wax is completely melted around the whole diameter of the jar. This will ensure a clean, even burn for the life of your candle. Always keep the wick trimmed to 1/4".
Please note that the jars are reusable after your candle is finished. Simply pop the wick out of the bottom of your jar and dispose of it. Then, put the jar into the microwave until the remaining wax is melted. Use a paper towel to wipe the remaining melted wax out of the jar. Put it into dishwasher to clean and sanitize. Reuse for years to come!
