Will there be new spring or summer candles soon?
Jade: Hi @lisaannconti!
I'm SO glad you asked! We just dropped 3 new candles that are light and sweet and perfect for that warm weather vibe!
First, we have our Juicy Pomegranate candle and it smells just as perfect as it sounds. It's got this amazing exotic, sweet fruity scent that you're going to love for summer. You'll smell hints of pomegranate (of course), black currant, raspberry, rose, sugar crystals & more! Mouth watering huh!?
Next up, one of my new faves is our Bamboo candle! It's like walking into a garden of lush greens with fresh bamboo and fragrant white florals surrounding you plus a hint of citrus. With scent notes of bamboo, citrus zest, coconut water, wild jasmine, bamboo & more, you'll feel like you're in your own exotic escape.
And finally, who needs a little zen moment? I know I do! Our Matcha Green Tea Candle is just what you need to destress. With a light fruity, herbal fragrance you'll be as cool as a cucumber all day long. It's got hints of peach, apple, rose, gingerlily, blonde woods & more to keep you focused during your morning meditation or calm during your workday.
I hope you find one that you love and keep your eyes on our email and social media. We're always adding fun new items to our shop!
Looking for a gift - which candle should I get my bff for her bday?
Jade: Hi @bellapark_fitness!
Hmm, this is a tough one! There are so many great options!
If I had to choose a single candle it'd be our best-selling Mystery Candle. Each mystery candle has a different fragrance so you never know what you're going to get but somehow, every time I burn one of these candles it just smells great.
We also have some fun gift packs so you get a deal and a great gift all in one! You can find all of our gift set here but I think my favorite is the Spa Day Gift Set. It's definitely a great gift option for anyone who needs a self-care day. The gift set includes a Himalayan sea salt bath bomb, our Eucalyptus jewelry candle and our exclusive Christopher David vitamin C serum.
I hope that helps you find the perfect gift for your BFF!
What is the perfect way to burn a candle?
Jade: Hi @cutiegal8675309!
1) Make sure you are in an area without breeze (for obvious reasons lol)
2) Be sure that there is nothing above the flame, it can get pretty warm even a little way above the candle.
3) I can't say this one enough - keep your wicks trimmed! It's kinda my thing so guess what? We made it into a t-shirt! Ah, I love it! You can check that out here.
4) Ok, back on topic, make sure that the scent you are using reflects your activity (i.e. relaxing = lavender) And for me? After I've been cleaning all day, lighting a candle is just the cherry on top!
Ok, now go! Find your perfect candle and your perfect spot and go relax!
