I’ve just started college and candles aren’t allowed in the dorms. I was thinking of getting a travel tin so it’s easy to hide lol. Which one is the best travel tin?
Jade: Hey Anon!
We at Jackpot Candles don’t condone any rule breaking, so if you’re dorming, be sure to take a look at the restrictions on what you can and can’t have with you at school. Buuuut… if you’re going to break the rules anyway, why not pick a small candle with a metal container that’s less likely to crack and break under high temperatures like glass would? One of the top reasons candles aren’t allowed in dorm rooms is the fact that hot plates tend to crack glass candle jars (hazard alert!). Not only do our candles have sturdy metal tins that won’t crack- they have a bonus piece of jewelry inside! How cool is that? Safer and more bang for your buck!
The important thing about candles in dorm rooms is the scent. If the scent of your candle is too aggressive, your RA/CA could smell it from the hallway and know you have contraband! For that reason, I recommend these sneaky scents…
A candle? Where? All you have is eucalyptus essential oil!
Destress during those all-nighters
Get some realistic silk lavender sprigs off amazon and boom! Natural scent! Candle who?
Keep away headaches from staring at screens and papers.
Starbucks’s drinks really do be smelling STRONG these days… They’re not gonna know... How would they know?
Create the perfect autumn vibes for spooky season!
Please just remember that if you are going to have a lit candle in a small space, keep the flame away from anything that could possibly catch fire. Go by the 1ft rule- if there’s nothing within a foot (and nothing above) your candle, you should be safe! Just remember to blow it out when you’re done!
Will you be having the fun halloween bath bombs again that you had last year?
Jade: Great question Gracie,
Break out your comfy sweaters and pumpkin spice because it’s October which means it’s officially SPOOKY SEASON!! (Can you tell it’s my favorite?) We actually JUST dropped our collection of Halloween bath bombs! A full set of 6, there’s a bath BOO-mb for everyone!
