Located in Asheville, North Carolina and built by George Washington Vanderbilt II in 1895. The Biltmore Estate is the largest home in the country with 250 rooms.
The Vanderbilt's hosted grand parties, where the house included an indoor pool—as well as hidden doors, rooms, and passageways designed to give the family and their guests privacy and to enable the staff to move among gathering spaces unobtrusively.
George died in 1914 from an emergency appendectomy, and his ghost can be seen in his study. Visitors and staff have reported hearing “George” repeatedly in the hallways. It is believed that the spirit of Edith Vanderbilt herself is wandering the halls and possibly searching for her husband. At night, some of the people working the grounds had heard sounds of laughter, glasses clinking, and party-like chatter.
Most of the visitors had reported seeing spirits going up or down the stairs. Sounds of footsteps had also been heard on multiple occasions. There have been reports of strange smells, cold spots, and eerie feelings when visitors would go up or down the stairs.
Also on the property is the The old Forestry Compound that was once the Biltmore Forestry School and the site of a sex workers murder. The spirit of the woman, along with a few others who were executed by hanging inside the old building, is said to be haunting the halls of the old compound.

How to use
How to use
Following Candle Care helps to ensure product quality + longevity. We highly recommend following each of the following steps:
Trim your candle's wick to 1/4" before each lighting or once your candle has cooled.
Never attempt to trim a burning candle.
Discard the snipped portion in the trash; never leave wick trimmings in your candle jar.
The wick should always remain centered and away from the sides of the vessel.
Allow the wax to melt to the edges of the jar during each burn to prevent tunneling.
Safety first - because candles contain a small flame, we encourage following these rules:
Never leave a candle burning unattended, near a draft, or in reach of children or pets.
Don't burn your candle for more than 4 hours at a time.
Stop burning your candle when only 1/4" of wax remains.
Do not pick up a burning candle or immediately after it's been blown out.
Protect the surface underneath the candle no matter the material.
