We've launched better shipping options

Posted by Megan Dorcey on


One of our core beliefs here at Pomeroy 142 is that it's possible to provide quality candles that benefit you and have low environmental impact at prices that make sense. We strive to be as minimally invasive as possible to our environment. We make that happen through the best possible ingredients that have the lowest impact on the environment, packaging that is either made from recycled materials or can be recycled (and you'll never find plastic in your order!), and carbon offsets. On top of that, everything we source is from manufacturers here in the United States. Running a business by these principles means it's often tricky to keep costs low. Over the past year, we've changed packaging and vessels to align better with our...

That's right, if you take a look at...

The best scents for your home

Posted by Megan Dorcey on


Scent is one of the most important things to consider when you welcome guests into your home. Think about it, certain scents can bring back memories from decades ago. I still think of roll-on glitter from the Claire's jewelry store when I smell specific kinds of vanilla scents. It was my favorite accessory as a 10 year-old banned from wearing real makeup. Scent and memory are more closely tied than maybe any of our other senses. That's why it's so important to make a great first (or third) impression when someone enters your home. The scent they pick up will be associated with their experience and with you personally. With so many scents to choose from, there's a lot of room...

The best essential oils for cleaning

Posted by Megan Dorcey on


When I set out to bring more frugal home keeping practices into my life, little did I know how intimate I'd become with knowledge of all things essential oils. I started creating my own cleaning formulas and detergents and began to wonder... were their certain essential oils that were better for cleaning? The answer, I soon learned, was definitely. Below, I've listed my favorite essential oils for cleaning your home, why it works, and how you can find it.  1. Peppermint It seems like every time I type a new natural alternative question into Google, I find out that Peppermint is the go-to. Did you know you could use peppermint to repel mice?

Best non-toxic skincare products

Posted by Megan Dorcey on


Not only am I passionate about non-toxic, natural candles - but also the products I use each and every day, which is why I've rounded up some of my favorite skincare products and brands that boast natural, non-toxic, and organic ingredients.  I should start out by stating that it took a lot of trial and error before I really found the products that are working for me now. With that said, I change products seasonally so this isn't always the go-to list. My skin type is sensitive, dry, and I do suffer from the occasional adult acne outbreak (hormones!). This is what's working for me now. Tata Harper's Hydrating Floral Essence I am a pretty serious Tata Harper fangirl. Not only are the...
