scents inspired by the south


Beth Hughes is a true Southerner.

As a Georgia native, she knows the South is more than just a spot on the map, it’s a way of life. From porch swings and lightning bugs to sweet tea and college football, Beth is fully immersed in the sugarcoated southern lifestyle. Like a lot of us, she was inspired to turn on her creative light. That little light inside each of us we need to let shine. It was this creative drive, combined with Beth’s southern roots, that sparked Little Light Co.

Little Light Co. is a southern soy candle and home goods company designing sophisticated scents and products. Hughes creates the distinctive scents in her Athens, Ga home, inspired by the natural surroundings of the South. Made with natural botanicals, organic soy wax is blended with coconut oil and finished with all 100% all natural cotton wick. Scents include: Lavender & Lace, Porch Swing, Honeysuckle, Marmalade, Clothes Pin, Ginkgo and Longleaf Pine. Simply put, she pours the South right into a mason jar. And the result is just as charming as you’d expect.
