But It's a Dry Heat is a tropical summer escape in a jar! 

Our July Storyteller candle transports you to a vacation spot that's fun, fruity, and just the right amount of sassy. It opens with plenty of fresh lime, sweet oranges, mandarin and tropical guava; is balanced by hints of spicy chili peppers and uplifting lemon verbena; and is rounded out with tropical coconut and soft wood

Around here, we are big fans of planning time off and always having something to look forward to, but especially so while we are enduring many long months of sweltering summer heat! We value getting out in nature, the occasional change of scenery, seeing new places + taking time for self care. And studies even show that the act of “just planning or anticipating [a] trip can make you happier than actually taking it.”

Given that, we created this colorful and happy tropical vacation in a jar for you to burn during the summer while daydreaming about your next getaway. And we made it colorful and full of hand-drawn whimsy to help elevate your mood + brighten up your space.


The Storyteller Series is a small batch collection of candles that is released the first week of each month to our insiders email club. Releases are limited in quantity, so once they are sold out, they are gone. Each of these candles is meant to evoke a person, place, feeling, season or thing through a special scent blend and accompanying story. You may find yourself reflected in these stories, be comforted by a familiar memory, or even whisked away to somewhere enchanted or dreamy. Whatever the case may be, these candles are meant to provide a little moment of escape in your day to day in a fun + unique way.
