I'm a mother, wife, writer and online store owner. I've lived in the southern suburbs of Adelaide all my life.

Nestled away in the main street of the picturesque German town of Hahndorf in an old restored family home sits The 3 Wishes Candle Barn; a beautiful little shop that smells delicious even before you walk through the old, heavy doors.
Rapidly growing in popularity, The 3 Wishes Candle Barn offers a range of beautiful candles, melts and bath salts and bath milk; all made on site as well as other gifts and stylish home decor products.
The products made on site are made from 100 percent Kosher certified eco-soy wax, free from pesticides, herbicides and the other nasties associated with lower quality products. Soy is sourced from small farms in America, so supports small businesses around the world.
As well as being environmentally and ethically sound, The 3 Wishes Candle Barn's candles and melts smell divine.
Candle scents include fresh coffee, blueberry muffin, vanilla caramel, Chanel No.5 and my all time favourite, gingerbread. I purchased a gingerbread candle on my last visit to Hahndorf and am mesmerised by the alluring smell. I will be sure to buy another one or twelve before Christmas.
The atmosphere in the store is other worldly, the rafters are still exposed and the roof is low and traditional. Staff are friendly and willing to help in any way they can (without following you around the store and offering too much unwanted attention which I appreciate).
If however you can't make the trip to Hahndorf, candles are available for purchase online.
