In this week’s blog we have something very exciting to share with you… our new products have arrived and are now available, so we thought we’d shine a spotlight on each of the products
A wee while ago we shared a bit of a teasing image of one of our beautiful handmade wooden boxes with the question above it “What’s In The Box?” Well the answer our new product – it’s a beautiful Large Soy Wax Scented Candle and is available in two different scents – The Beauty of Pure Rose and also Champagne and White Rose. As always we only use essential oils and botanicals in our products so you won’t find any chemicals or synthetic scents in here, and as we only use Soy Wax in our candles there are no potential health concerns associated with the use of Paraffin or Petroleum based candles.
When we were looking to develop the new products we felt that there weren’t enough candle based products aimed specifically as a wedding gift. So we wanted to develop one, hence Champagne and White Rose. We also wanted it to be a gifting candle for other times too – maybe an anniversary or birthday or Christmas present. We wanted to develop a product to allow our customers to show how much they love and care.
We also wanted to develop a gifting candle, maybe for that special lady in your life, hence The Beauty of Pure Rose (although I’m a guy and I love this candle too so there’s no reason you shouldn’t buy it for the special guy in your life too!). We avoided going too “girlie” in this candle, but we couldn’t resist using pink shredded paper in the box!
We also wanted to look beyond the gifting market. One of the things that we all have in our homes is tealight candles. They seem to be used more than any other candles, but the VAST majority of these are paraffin based candles. We blogged recently about the potential long term health issues with burning fossil fuel based candles (https://lochraincandles.net/2020/02/17/frequent-use-of-certain-candles-produces-unwanted-chemicals/). Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, a non-renewable source that contains carcinogenic substances. These substances may be released into the air while burning, and create a significant amount of black soot and toxins that collect on the jar, as well as on your walls and other surfaces of the home. At Lochrain Candles, we believe that this is not a healthy way to live, so we wanted to develop a simple, unscented, long burning, high quality Soy Wax Tealight Candle. The packaging is simply kraft card, and although you can of course buy it as a gift for someone (it makes a perfect low cost environmentally friendly vegan gift) the idea is that you can also buy it for yourself to use every day.
All of these candles are brand new to the market and only just becoming available now – not even the professional product photography has been done yet, and there are no reviews yet. So right now we have a special discount of 50% and this will only run until we’re ready to launch to the general public. The only reason you know about this is because you are a member of the Lochrain Family, so consider this a wee gift back to you. What would really help us, if you wanted to, would be for you to give an honest review of the products. Reviews are the lifeblood of our family business and it would really help if you left one. And of course if there was something that you felt could be improved, then please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
So if you wanted to get yourself one of our new products search for Lochrain Candles on your local Amazon Market
Thank you, as always, for your support.
