If you're from Northern Indiana, you don't need a description. We all grew up in the dunes. From the Miller Woods to Mount Baldy, there's about 20 miles of Indiana Dunes National Park. Over 15,000 acres and 50 miles of hiking trails. The dunes are special to those that grew up near the Southern shores of Lake Michigan.
For us, growing up in Miller, it was the place to be. We were always hiking far into the Miller Woods. This was where we hung out. It was such a huge, and magical, part of my teenage years and only now do I realized how lucky we were to have this, Today, we take our kids into the dunes and show them all the plants, birds, and wildlife so this can be a part of their growing up as well. We teach them that the dunes are living and need to be respected and preserved.
This candle is really fantastic. It's a very natural smell with scent notes of bamboo leaf, bergamot, lemon verbena, and white orchid. Absolutely gorgeous! It really smells like you're standing in a field of marram grass.
