A Candle for Mothers Day: Floral Edition

When I think of Moms and Mother's Day, I often think of flowers and bouquets of flowers. After all, what mom wouldn't love a bouquet of flowers to grace her kitchen table or coffee table?

So let's talk floral scented candles for a minute because here's a way of gifting mom with the aroma of fresh flowers in her home, not just for a few days but for months.
