Benefits of Buying Your Candles From a Small Business

Nov 5, 2020

We get it, when you’re looking to buy any product, the temptation to just log onto a big retailer’s site and quickly order something within seconds is real. However, when you buy from a multi-million dollar corporation, convenience is about the only thing that will be of benefit to you.

Here’s why it’s a great idea to do a little research and find a specialized small business to buy your products (or in our case, candles) from!

Hand pouring a Candlelit Candle

You know that time and care has been put into making a product that is manufactured to a high standard. Here at Candlelit Candle Co, we carefully handpick every single ingredient used in our candles. Each and every candle is hand-poured by us, and packaged with great care to ensure it is safely delivered to you ready to enjoy! We’re experts in what we do, and we know how to make beautiful candles without the nasty chemicals many corporations add to their mass-produced products. Since we care so much about our customers we will even replace anything broken in shipping at no charge, we value you as a customer more than any corporation ever will.

Getting ready to ship out an order!

We care about each individual customer. Following on from the previous point, we ensure our candles are safe and healthy because we care about you, and about each and every one of our wonderful customers. We want our products to uplift your life, not leave you with a headache and breathing in unnecessary fumes. If you have any queries or comments about our products, you are able to speak to the very experts (or more often than not the owner) who mix and pour our candles, rather than a hired ‘representative’ reading from a script.

Selling at a local craft fair

Peace of mind on who actually made your product. When buying from a huge company, you can never really be sure about who crafted your product, and under what circumstances. From an ethical perspective, we craft all of our products ourselves, rather than outsourcing to tirelessly overworked and underpaid workers. So you can really feel good about your purchase, knowing that the people who made your candle for you are doing it because we love what we do.

Recirculating money at the local farmers market

You’re making a difference to real, individual lives. Each and every purchase made in our store means the world to us and benefits our lives directly. When you buy from a big retailer, the majority of your money goes into an already extraordinarily wealthy CEO’s pocket. When you buy from a small business, that money goes into further building up a venture that is someone’s pride and joy, and it really means something.

Hiring freelancers to support hard working individuals

It’s better for the economy. Additionally, when you buy from a smaller business, did you know that for every $100 spent, $68 goes right back into the community, building up that local economy. Your money is going to the right place, rather than being hoarded in a bank account of someone with too much money to know what to do with it!

We stock a great variety of scents to suit everyone’s personal taste, so go ahead and have a browse, and remember we’re here to answer any questions you may have!
