After selling Scentsy for over four years, I felt limited by what I could offer people. I thought Scentsy was the best out there, but after researching candles and wax melts, I discovered that there are many high quality options for both the best wax and scent combinations.
I am so excited by the products we’re creating! Candle making takes lots of research and is quite the science. Candles must be tested to be sure the wax and wicks and scents behave properly. Our home is an amazing mix of scents when we are testing and creating candles.
- We test a wide variety of waxes which can be blended to hold the highest scent (our standard).
- Our wax melts are a blend of two wax types, which hold the highest scents and are easily removed from the warmers.
- We choose from several types of wicks, each being tested to ensure they don’t mushroom (create a blob of soot at the end of the wick) or smoke, or make the wax tunnel (form a pit in the wax) or don’t melt all the way across the candle (making the scent weak).
- We test each type of container to be sure the wax, wicks, and scents create beautifully scented candles. This is especially a challenge when we use various sized vintage glassware and goblets, but the results are definitely worth it.
Yes, we have learned that candle making is time-consuming, but so rewarding when we find what works best!
