Bed and Breakfast Aroma Therapy

We are so excited to tell you about Bon Secour Candle Company our newest vendor who provides aroma therapy for guest rooms with wax melts.¬†They¬†are made using natural soy wax, phthalate free fragrance oils and no dyes. “Southern Sands” is the fragrance we have chosen for our guest rooms.

Bon Secour Candle Company is located in Gulf Shores, Alabama where all candles are hand poured in small batches. Soy Candle Tins are all environmentally friendly made from 100% Natural Soy Wax produced by soy beans grown in the USA. Soy Wax Tarts are great for households with children or pets (not to mention national historic register properties) because they are flame free! Alabama Bed and Breakfasts should take notice.

Bon Secour Candle 2

Owner Lynn Jordan started teaching middle school language arts after college and left the classroom in 2000.¬†‚ÄúI needed a little something to do and started making candles,‚ÄĚ she says.¬†Fourteen years ago, she was in Pensacola making paraffin candles and doing art shows.¬†‚ÄúOne thing or another led us to Gulf Shores and we moved about six years ago,‚ÄĚ she says.

From her home on Plash Island she can see local shrimp boats dock up on the Bon Secour River. Lynn considers candle making and photography stress relievers so keep your eye out for her signature Tin Candles with her shrimp boat photo on top.

Soy Candle Tins and Wax Melts can be purchased on their website, Bon Secour Candle Company, or from many retailers around the area. Find A Store

Guide To Alabama Weekend Getaway Destinations

Debbie Williams from WKRG TV in Mobile reported that for the first time in 70 years a pair of American Bald Eagles are nesting on the Alabama Gulf Coast. We did find the nest and a bald eagle standing guard on the limb above it. Soon after the second eagle flew in and landed in the nest. ¬†I still have goose bumps and it’s been several hours since we saw them.

Another Bald Eagle was spotted near the Weeks Bay National Estuary Research Center and is just a short drive from the B&B. See How It Landed Its Catch On The Following Video.
