Why you might want to reconsider shopping those popular candles at the mall...
You know those candles you find at popular store in the mall? While they make a quick grab & go gift, there may be a few things you want to be aware of. We're here to help you tell the difference between a really great candle and a less than ideal candle. Let's go!
Watch out for Wax!
While many candles advertise a soy wax blend, you have to be careful with what exactly is in that blend and how much of that blend actually consists of real soy wax. A lot of soy blends consist of other not-so-good-for-you ingredients like paraffin wax or hydrogenated vegetable oils. You may think, "hey! vegetables can't be bad for me!" It's actually the process of hydrogenating the oil that makes it less than ideal.
Jackpot candles are 100% soy wax - no hydrogenation of oils, no suspicious mixes, just 100% clean burning soy wax. A soy wax candle has a lot of benefits but one of our favorites is the fact that it doesn't put all that weird stuff into the air you're breathing the way some other popular candles might.
Know where they're coming from!
SO many big-box store candles are made elsewhere and imported into the US. The problem with this is that other countries may not employ the same rigorous standards that the US does on certain products.
Buying from a small biz like Jackpot Candles, you know every bit of your candle - the jar, the wick, the wax, the fragrance oils - are all made in the USA. We pour each candle by hand so we know exactly what's going into your candle and we can make sure that you're getting the best candle your money can buy. Plus! By shopping made in the USA, you're providing lots of candle and bath bomb jobs to small, local artisans right here in Amherst, NY. We thank you all for making our small biz dreams a reality!
Um, what about the jewelry?!
Oh yeah, that small detail, lol.
One huge difference that we think makes Jackpot Candles WAY cooler than your average, run-of-the-mill candle (or bath bomb) is the fact that we have jewelry in every single one! With each item you purchase from us, you have a chance at discovering a ring or necklace worth anywhere from $15 - $5,000! You won't find that kind of unique surprise in a shopping mall candle!
If you're looking for a gift for a loved one (or maybe even yourself, *wink, wink*) this is definitely the way to go.
