Your sense of smell is very closely linked with your memory, so having a candle with scents of home is the perfect way to get over being homesick.  Homesick Candles has made a unique scent for each state in our great nation and two for California because apparently northern and southern California smell drastically different.

Michigan's smell is described on their website as "scents reminiscent of indian summers, cherries, and chocolate."  OK, that sounds like Michigan, kinda...  But they should really swap out "chocolate" for "fudge" in the description, and then make a separate scent entirely for the Upper Peninsula.

You can find the candle for sale on for $29.99.  The candle is made from all natural soy wax in the USA and has a burn time of approximately 60-80 hours.  They have 51 different candles to choose from, so if you're not from Michigan, you can still get that scent of home right here!

And if you can come up with a good scent for the UP, post it in the comments below!
