  • Graduation candle gift set
    I wish you could smell how good my house smells. I . . . am burning “Daisy Me Rollin,” a fresh light scent of brown sugar and fig.
  • Daisy Me Rollin Candle Front
    I sent Amanda’s graduate gift box and it was really well received. Flowers are nice, but a candle set lasts for HOURS and makes the whole room smell like a cozy cafe. Highly recommend!

  • I absolutely LOVE this candle! Since we have not been able to travel due to the pandemic, the scent of this candle brings me back to the beach . . . Highly recommend!
  • This soap leaves my skin feeling moisturized. It has a rich lather and smells great without being overpowering. The combination of citrus and musk is refreshing.
  • Just received this candle . . . and immediately treated myself to a little quiet social distancing. :) I love the scent and the look of the packaging/wooden wick is so appealing.

  • The coffee aroma is amazing! Not overpowering at all, just a lovely, rich scent and a hint of sweetness. The best of everything!

About Amanda

I’m Amanda, and I put the AMANDA in A MANDAtory Activity (and I like a good bad pun). I loved making candles and soaps for friends and family and they wanted to buy them to share with their friends.  From that desire, A Mandatory Activity was born.
