SCENTED VOTIVES: Balance art with science: a true test of the candle makers' skills.
Selling scented votive candles is the easiest merchandise to sell in your store because they simply sell themselves.
Votives adapt to just about any display fixture or store design. Fill up a crate, glass pantry jar, basket, barrel or bucket what ever suites your store.

The more you know the more you'll sell.
Why are craftsman-made candles better than the mass merchandiser brands?
1. Made in the USA is important because you can be sure of the quality of the
basic materials: cotton braided wick, highly refined paraffin wax.
2. Artisan made candles simply have to be the best to earn customer loyalty
and keep the small independent candle business in business.
3. Shop local means that your customers support not only your independent
retail store, they also support a USA candle maker - like us.
4. Fragrances used in candles are made to be used in wax. They are designed to
blend with the wax and "throw" the fragrance throughout a room.
5. We pour liquid wax into molds because a solid poured candle is superior to
a candle made with shaved and compressed wax.
6. Paraffin wax is a product of the oil refining process and an important
commodity with many uses. USA candle makers use only highly refined wax.

Information provided by the National Candle Association:
A well-made candle will create virtually no smoke when burning properly. However, if the wick becomes too long, or an air current disturbs the flame's teardrop shape, small amounts of unburned carbon particles (soot) will escape from the flame as a visible wisp of smoke. Any candle will soot if the flame is disturbed. To avoid this, always trim the wick to ¼ inch before every use and be sure to place candles away from drafts, vents or air currents. If a candle continually flickers or smokes, it is not burning properly and should be extinguished. Allow the candle to cool, trim the wick, make sure the area is draft free, then re-light.
Paraffin wax is non-toxic. Paraffin wax is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in food, cosmetics, and medical applications. Food-grade paraffin is commonly used for manufacturing candles.
Soy wax candles are not 100% natural. Chemicals are added to the byproduct of soy to make a waxy substance and even more chemicals are added for the soy wax to be able to hold fragrance oil. Fragrance oil is not a natural substance, so if the soy candle has fragrance in it, it is even further from being 100% natural. Even soy candles made with essential oils are not “all natural” because the wax is chemically produced from a soy bean. The soy bean does not come out of the ground ready to melt down for a candle.
