Why should you buy handmade candles?

Yes, the prices of Yankee candles and Bath & Body works are enticing but to get those prices they aren't as great as you think. It isn't them either, any large store or company is likely cutting corners to get you that discount price. Just think about the fast fashion industry and the shady practices we are starting to see come to light.

The difference is, candles are a science. This means reactions are happening that you can not even see but could be harmful to you and your pets.

Candles are a beautiful and simple way to add a touch of warmth and ambiance to any space. Not only do they provide a soothing and calming atmosphere, but they also have the ability to transform a room with their unique scents and styles.

One of the best things about handmade candles is that they are made with natural ingredients and often are not trying to cut corners like the big box companies, which can provide a variety of benefits for your health and well-being. 

Another great aspect of handmade candles is that they can be customized to fit your personal style and preferences. You can choose from a wide range of fragrances, colors, and even shapes to create a candle that is truly unique and special. Even offering a fully custom candle like Woof Wicks for your furry loved one.

Purchasing handmade candles can also be an environmentally-friendly choice. Many store-bought candles are made with cheap fragrances and other harmful chemicals that can be harmful to both people, pets and the planet. By shopping small and handmade candles, you are choosing natural and sustainable ingredients that are better for your health and the environment. If you are unsure of what is being used, do not be afraid to ask. Here at Woof Wicks we use 100% soy wax, which means no paraffin wax that chemically reacts harmfully. We also do tons of research to ensure our fragrance oils are phthalates free, which was/is a chemical found in fragrance oils linked to endocrine issues.

Overall, handmade candles are a beautiful and practical way to add a touch of warmth and relaxation to your home. Whether you are looking to create a cozy atmosphere or simply want to enjoy the benefits of scent, handmade candles are a wonderful choice.
