National Treasure Hunt has collaborated with KLEIO, a woman-owned sensory history company, to develop a candle inspired by the olfactive history of Independence Hall at the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Paired with our book, National Treasure Hunt: One Step Short of Crazy, this candle might just have you itching to steal the Declaration of Independence (or at least wanting to learn more about the history of its development).
Our candle has taken a trip to the KLEIO archives. Check back frequently to learn when it's available again!
