Over the years, we have made tens of thousands of candles, and we learn and improve with every batch.
“It takes 10,000 hours of intensive practice to achieve mastery”. So says Malcolm Gladwell, and this is so true for candle making. It is a skill and a rhythm perfected only by time.
Each scent has its own individual characteristics. Each blend is unique. It takes months of testing and retesting before a new scent is ready to be launched. This involves perfecting each scent combination, researching different scents at different flash points, pairing each scent with the perfect wick and finding the ideal pour temperature for each container.
It is a beautiful process and there is immense satisfaction when the testing is complete.
There can be no rushing this process if it is to be perfected. That is why our candles are slow crafted.
