Lux Beauty Boutique

You might not think to look at a beauty and makeup store for candles, but Lux stocks some of the prettiest candles you’ll ever see. They carry Voluspa candles (worth buying for the beautiful containers alone) in a variety of sizes, including the holiday mini candles in travel tins. You’ll also find Ted Baker candles, in elegant white holders. If you’re looking for something unique, they also sell Gilded Muse faceted jar candles and Mercury Box glass candles.

I can’t walk into Anthropologie without smelling at least one candle – the Capri Blue Jar candles, which come in such amazing scents that it takes all of my willpower not to buy them all up at once. But, there’s plenty of other great candles here too, in all shapes and sizes, including Katz’s Delicatessen, Volupsa, Chicklit, Barr-Co Apothecary Jar, Printemps, Herb Garden, Tisane votives, Take Note candles, Spring’s Eden, Boulangerie Jar and Camp Wandawega candle gift sets. They’re all (almost) too pretty to burn.

Makers claim it can aid in digestive health, plus it just tastes fantastic. Often made from organic, raw ingredients, kombucha teas have exploded in popularity in the past decade. These Edmonton shops carry a variety of brands, including some Canuck favourites.
