November is Diabetes Awareness Month

Ten years ago our then 6-year old was expectedly diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  There was heartbreak, tears and confusion.  But we learned how to manage it, and each year it became easier.  Sure it takes effort and care, and there are still many sleepness nights drinking juice and popping gummies.  But he does it unfailingly, without complaint. 

This "Drink Your Juice, Shelby" orange [juice] scented candle was inspired by the movie Steel Magnolias and its iconic beauty salon scene between Julia Roberts and Sally Field -- played out time and again in real life by T1D moms and their babies (myself included).  

Proceeds from this limited edition candle will go to Pediatrics at Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, who have been a huge part of our family's journey.

CANDLE CARE: Your candle has a memory. Allow it to burn for a few hours the first time you light it to create an even "melt pool" across the top. This ensures that your candle burns evenly and for its full life. Trim the wick to 1/4" each time you light for a clean burn. Always burn within sight, and keep away from flammable objects, children and pets.

TIME:  3-5 business days to ship

OF NOTE: Our candles are handmade and lovingly poured. Variations in color are completely normal and to be expected. Also, occasional frosting and spotting may occur due to the nature of soy wax.
