For anyone coming to this page since June of 2014 (it is now December 2014):
Botanicus Products are no longer manufactured or sold by the company. I have looked all over to see if they will be back in business, but it seems they are gone….for good. The website, Botanicus, has been bought by another company who has assumed the name. These are not the same products.
I am SO SORRY, as I know you are. They were wonderful products. I have had many, many requests from readers, but I cannot do anything more as there is no way to reach them.
I am truly sorry.
Here is my original post:
Botanicus Products
are made in the U.S.
But that is just one reason I love them.. I discovered them several years ago at a small store at Reagan Airport in Washington, D.C. and bought some of the small candles. Then I saw the booth and met the owners at the New York Gift Show (back in the days when I walked those aisles for hours and hours…).
I am not a “home scent” person. I don’t like anything too perfumy or fruity or cloying or…well…or almost any scent at all. Any candles I use […]

From Botanicus: This is my very favorite source for fragrant candles… I’m NOT a big fan of scented candles. period. But these are spectacular! My favorite is the Green Tea, and I believe it is their best seller. Also, these are MADE IN THE UNITED STATES! Right in Maryland.


From the Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco:

I was here in October and saw the “Open Source Embroidery” show (there until January 24, 2010). I highly recommend it. And, their gift shop is a wonderful source for hand made accessories, jewelry, paper etc.
