HOW TO CHOOSE A LUXURY SCENTED CANDLE
We all love candles! We find ourselves lighting candles when the seasons are changing, or during romantic moments with loved ones, family dinners, or to add some cozy feeling to our apartments, or during long relaxing bath....the list is endless... I think we can all agree that with scented candles we can mainly associate the happiest moments of our life. But are all scented candles equal? The answer is NO. With the continued emphasis on health and environmentally friendly things, we bring into our home scented candles without realizing that some of them are better for you and your family than others. You should always look for candles that are made from natural waxes such as soy or most luxuries of all waxes beeswax. Always avoid candles made with paraffin wax because they produce soot that is unhealthy. Look for candles that burn clean with low smoke or soot. All candles will produce smoke or soot even if the manufacturer claims otherwise. What you want is a scented candle with the lowest amount of black smoke. Look for candles with cotton, hemp, or approved metal core wick. Lead wicks are hazardous to your health and are no longer made in the United States but still imported from other countries with little more than a small print warning on the bottom.
ALL SCENTED CANDLES CONTAINERS ARE DESIGNED WORTHY DON’T YOU THINK?
We all know a lot of people swear by the candles that come in the country-looking jars or metal tins, but maybe we should keep those jars for raspberry jams or pickles. No matter how wonderful the scented candle smells, a huge jar that looks like you pulled it our form under your grandmother's sink will never add a luxury feel to our apartment. As a luxury candles producer I believe that what we are bringing to our homes needs to be attractive, the packaging of the candle should add experience or at least be neutral in the room's décor. Since candles are commonly given as gifts it's also very important that they are wrapped properly. The packaging doesn’t have to be fancy to be attractive. A simple classic box with a ribbon will be perfect for any occasion.
WHAT MAKES SCENTED CANDLES SCENTED?
Who likes to get a scented candle that emits little or no fragrance! But what actually produces the fragrance from a scented candle. According to the NCA- National Candle Association
