Do you ever find yourself feeling like this?

Same, Bart. Same.

Whether you're a college student who's moved away from home for the very first time or a grown-ass adult who just really misses their childhood home, BuzzFeed's Homesick Candles are for you.

Each candle is hand-poured with all-natural soy wax and tailored with scents reminiscent of your home state.

Ah, Illinois: the land of grain fields, violets, and lavender. The box and candle labels also have a minimalistic, black image of your state in case you've been away from home for so long that you forgot what your state looks like.

A few product photos even include some extra props that show you a physical manifestation of the candle's smell.

Only for those three states, though. I'm sensing some biases here. *shifty eyes*

Unfortunately, there are only 26 states to choose from as of right now. BUT they graciously bestowed upon us separate Northern and Southern California candles, because HOW DARE you think they smell the same??

You can sign up for an email notification for when your state is available, though! (Hawaiians, your rightful day will come. And your candle will smell the best, tbh.)

Burn, baby, burn. Get that nostalgia fired up. 🔥

Cat: "I still don't understand what the Jersey Shore is supposed to smell like.”

You can even set up a beautiful little ~home shrine~ like this Massachusetts native did.
