So many people love candles, and it’s been fun to see people’s reactions to what I sell. I truly listen to the comments and feedback I receive from my customers, vendors, and of course, my friends. I’m excited to announce that I am now able to expand my product line into another popular candle product...votives!
In order to accomplish this, I needed to take some time to experiment with other wax types. When I first decided to sell my candles, I had found a commercial brand of wax that I “understood” and could predict. Unfortunately, this brand was formulated specifically for container candles and not for free standing types such as votives. I also wanted to ensure I could create a quality candle that would hold the fragrance and color all of you have come to expect.
Creating votive candles has allowed me to expand into soy wax. As many of you know, soy is an eco-friendly wax that is renewable and less harmful to our environment. However, you may not realize that paraffin is the premium wax to hold color and fragrance. I have now created a custom blend of soy and paraffin waxes which accomplishes the best of both worlds.
Fragrances in my votive line are being added slowly so I can thoroughly produce and test each scent for quality purposes before making it available to you. Please see the votive listing on page 2 for what is available as of this publication.
