Kitting out a faerie queen hideaway demands a high level of taste, and an eye for enchanting objets d’art that befit an ethereal royal. No minimalism here: The faerie queen abode, indoor and out, is inspired by the natural (and supernatural) world and incorporates lush elements from the forest along with other motifs from nature. Creating a faerie queen environment doesn’t have to break the bank. If you are patient, you can unearth inspiring finds at thrift shops, garage sales, and estate sales.
Just Bee Cosmetics Candles offer some of the most unique blends we’ve seen. Lavender Fig features notes of lavender, fig, cedar, and fern, all ingredients that any faerie queen would love. Pomegranate and Lemon Rind is a blend of pomegranate, star anise, and lemon, perfect for spring. All are made with 100 percent natural cotton wicks, soy wax, organic coconut oil, and naturally gathered beeswax and are scented with essential oils. In three sizes: travel, 7-ounce, and 13-ounce. shop.justbee.us
