Wick-ed Good Burns

Hunting & Gathering

BY HANNAH BIZICK SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAY 24, 2019

Drift into your own little world while absorbing the sweet and spicy smells of grapefruit and turmeric with this sensational “beercandle” from Sarasota Candle Company. With a 50-hour burn time, the Grapefruit Turmeric all-natural soy candle will activate all the senses, leaving a lingering aroma behind that both energizes and refreshes. Take a stroll to the Sarasota Farmers Market on Saturday morning to check out an abundance of these yummy-smelling concoctions, all handmade by owner Drew Drubie. From vintage soda cans to Florida craft beer cans or empty Tito's vodka bottles—Drew uses all recycled vessels to fill with his natural essential oil waxes, with each scent crafted freely so that no two are the same. Don’t let the can or bottle’s name fool you though; the scent’s name is always inside the candle or on the bottom. Ignite the wick of other varieties like A Healthy Musk, When Monkeys Attack, Pipe it up, Sarasota Breeze and even Sexy time. In addition to the Farmers Market, these candles can be found locally at North River Body Therapies, Brow House, and His and Hers Bare Beauty.
