On my recent trip to Healdsburg, I made sure to stop by my favorite store on the square, La Farmacista. La Farmacista is a gorgeous boutique stocked with luxurious soaps, candles, shampoos and other bath products. While there, I engaged in some guilty pleasure shopping in the form of Seda France pagoda candles.
Seda France makes hand poured candles with scents that are nothing short of transporting. My favorite is Paisley Jaipur because it contains all the spicy and sweet smells that I experienced on my trip to India last winter – a trip that included a stop in Jaipur.
On this trip to La Farmacista, I indulged in a Paisley Jaipur pagoda candle and a Citron Du Sud pagoda candle. While the Paisley Jaipur scent has all the spiciness of India, the Citron Du Sud smells like the ocean and the countryside all at once. Both are heavenly. And at $29 per candle, they are perfect Tuesday Treats.
La Farmacista started as beautyexclusive.com, and you can still buy all of their products over the internet and shipping is free on all UPS ground orders (excluding Hawaii and Alaska, etc.). If you are ever in Sonoma County, however, head over to the Healdsburg square and experience La Farmacista live – you’ll feel like a kid in a candy shop. An added bonus? La Farmacista always gives you incredible samples and any items you purchase in store can also be shipped to your home UPS Ground, gratis. No more schlepping stuff home in your luggage. Now that’s a treat!
