Red Onion Saloon Candle
Hidden deep within the shadowed corners of Skagway, Alaska, the Red Onion Saloon looms – a notorious brothel from the days of the Klondike Gold Rush. As the frenzied whispers of gold-seekers faded into the wind, ghostly presences lingered, echoing the raucous and haunted past. Fragrances of Cypress, Rum, and Juniper waft through the air, transporting you to a time when the glitter of gold masked darker secrets.

As the Gold Rush faded, so too did the fortunes of the Red Onion Saloon. It went through various transformations, serving as a barracks, bakery, television station, and even a union office, before being restored as a saloon in the late 20th century.
As with any place steeped in history and high emotion, the Red Onion Saloon has its share of ghost stories. Over the years, both staff and visitors have reported a range of paranormal activity, from mysterious apparitions and disembodied voices to objects moving of their own accord.
The most famous spectral resident is said to be the ghost of a woman named Lydia, a former madam of the brothel. It's believed that Lydia still takes her role seriously, tending to the bordello upstairs even in death.

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.
