Over the next few months, you are going to see changes in our candle jar sizing and wicks. What will be new:
- Candle jars will be available in 3 sizes of hexagon jar (pictured right)
- Candle jars will be using enviro friendly wood wicks
The old saying “if it isn’t broke, why fix it?” is a true one; however, there are a few reasons we decided to make the switch. The biggest one is that our current jar style was discontinued by the manufacturer! That factor was of our control; however, we decided to eliminate the square candle tins also. We used to have to purchase all of our containers from two different manufacturers. It is more cost effective for us to purchase all of our styles from one manufacturer. This allows us to pass on savings to you.
We love the addiction of wood wicks. They provide a slower, more even burn to our candles. Another benefit to wood wicks is less black smoke (which we all hate), no trimming (usually) needed, and it’s more environmentally friendly. Plus, wood wicks give off a really cool crackling noise that makes us feel like we’re sitting by the fireplace in Gryffindor Tower. I’d say that’s a win for everybody.
As we phase out old designs, the new ones will pop up in listings. This week the square tins are the first to be removed. We hope to have the hexagon jars in full release by June. You will have the option to purchase candles in the 8.7oz jars (with cotton wicks) until our supplies run low. As of right now, we have about 5 dozen jars left.
It will take us a considerable amount of time to re-photograph our blends to feature new jars and jew labels. Please bear with us as we go through this change. We love the new brand identity that is forming this year and hope you enjoy it too!
