In 1979 my wife and I bought a Civil War period farmhouse in Fauquier County, Virginia. Over the years we went from wood heat to central, added some acreage with a small orchard and raised two daughters and many pets. We are still living on the farm and after long careers in the social services have launched Rural Squirrel to give our creative instincts an opportunity to share our love for country living. We use a blend of natural ingredients to recreate the warmth and serenity of rural living. 


Rural Squirrel is committed to using all natural ingredients, including botanical based essential oils that provide aromatherapy benefits. Our candles are hand poured at our home using  sustainable plant based waxes, including soy and soy/coconut blends for a clean burn providing a non-toxic aroma space in your home and in ours.
