Scent Recipe - Coffeehouse Conversations

Coffeehouse Conversations

Bring the coffeehouse home with delightful aromas of coffee concoctions and sweet baked goods. A delicious mixture of coffee, caramel, oatmeal and vanilla!

• 17 oz. Iced Caramel Macchiato
• 19 oz. Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
• Vanilla Latte tealights (3)

Scent Blending Recipes are carefully selected recipes of individual candles that when burning together, create their own unique, blended scent experience.
To maximize your fragrant experience, use the exact sizes and quantities noted in each recipe – a slight alteration can be like adding salt when you needed sugar.

FIRST: Arrange the candles on a heat-safe surface with the largest in the middle and smaller candles interspersed throughout. For votive and Tealight candles, use a holder to protect the surface.

SECOND: Place each candle approximately two inches apart in your arrangement.

THIRD: Light each candle and let the aromas mingle for at least 30 minutes to create your new fragrance experience.

Review of Homeology

My favorite thing about the Homeology line is that they are not full of chemicals. With two cats around the house, they get into everything and lick the strangest things, so I like the fact that there are no poisons on the floors or counters that they lick. I love the fact that these cleaners smell great, due to the aromatherapy scents in them, so I do not have to open the windows and air my place out after cleaning.

Many demonstrators have posted a variety of ways to use these products beyond their original use, but because that is not their design, I will not advocate these, use at your own risk. I know for myself, when my cats are sick and leave presents on the carpet, I clean it up and then spray the All Purpose cleaner on it. I let it set for a few minutes and then wipe it up, and I don’t end up with a stain.

My candle burns at both ends; it will not last the night; but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends - it gives a lovely light!

Dear Maven - Scent Mate


Dear Maven,
I love my new ScentMateTM but my favorite fragrance is not available in Home Fragrance Oil. Can I use Diffuser Oil or Linen Scent with my ScentMate?

Well aren’t you so crafty! While I do appreciate your resourcefulness, the truth is that the Linen Scent and Diffuser Oils are not as concentrated as the Home Fragrance Oils, so you won’t be getting the highest quality fragrance experience using them on the ScentMate as when the Home Fragrance Oils are used. 

All products are different and we make sure each product works the best with the fragrance products it’s intended for. I do have some good news for you though…look for brand new Home Fragrance Oil choices in the new
Holiday 2010 catalog!

As a good Gold Canyon Coworker, I must also refer you to the Product Knowledge Guide for proper usage of all products—but I bet you knew I was going to say that!

                                                                 Always By-the-Book,
                                                                 Maven

Colour - Red

Red Energy

Red is associated with fiery heat and warmth. It can also mean danger (burning).
Red is the color of blood, and as such has strong symbolism as life and vitality. It brings focus to the essence of life and living with emphasis on survival. Red is also the color of passion and lust.

Put some red in your life when you want:
• increased enthusiasm and interest
• more energy
• action and confidence to go after your dreams
• protection from fears and anxieties

September is a great time to Join Gold Canyon!

You may wonder why I say this, but here are the reasons for it:

Holiday Season – A very popular gift during the holidays is a candle or some other décor item. Gold Canyon has a lot of wonderful options for you and your customers. There are many people that start their shopping in September due to budgeting, so why not get in with those people?

Discounts – You can get a 25% or more discount on products that you buy for yourself and that you give others for the holidays! That’s a great way to help you save money!

Help pay the Bills – Even though you likely won’t find a GCC product for everyone on your list, by selling GCC, you will earn money to help you pay your other holiday bills before you even make your purchases, not the other way around!

New Products – Our new holiday line was just released, so you are potentially showing people the products for the first time. The more excited they are about the product, the more likely they are to buy.

Timing – By starting in September, you have time to hold a party for Jane, and her friends can book off her and still have plenty of time to have their party before the holidays. You have plenty of time to get several levels down into a chain.

Oil Warmer Review


This season Gold Canyon has come out with an oil burner. 
In the past, when I used an oil burner, I could put in a bowlful (probably 2 tablespoons?) and it would be gone within a few hours.  As a result, I wanted to know how Gold Canyon’s burners would do using the Gold Canyon oils. 
I set up the Traditional Trivet Burner with 50 drops of Sweet Pea oil.  The instructions mentioned 100 drops, but for my test, I decided 50 would be plenty.  It turned out it was, as the 50 drops (maybe about a tablespoon?) lasted until my tealight (generic one) died.  In fact, I still had some oil left in the bowl of the burner, maybe about 10 drops worth. 
Overall, I was impressed with the length of the oil lasting in this burner and would recommend it to others.   You do need to be careful where you put it as the oil bowl does get hot while it is burning, but the arms do not, which is nice.

Gold Canyon Breast Cancer Candle

Gold Canyon has introduced a Pink version of our Popular Sugar Cookie candle.  This is a limited edition candle make in a 16 oz Heritage Jar.  Gold Canyon Candles is donating 10% of the proceeds of this candle to Breast Cancer Research.

I have decided that for every one of these Candles that I sell, I will donate $5 to the C95 Breast Cancer Marathon that is held every October in Saskatoon.  So help with the research efforts and purchase a candle!
