Balance and Our Health!

Cynthias shotAs a women business owner I’m well aware of the struggles women face in the workplace or while running their own business.  The demands that society places on us can be daunting, to say the least.   I’ve met some incredible women over the years, had mentors that were very successful, not only in business but in other aspects of life as well.  What I’ve noticed about the most successful women I know is that they have a common thread that seems to run through them all.  I define it as balance.
They have a balanced approach to life even when faced with challenges or obstacles.  Here at Laguna Candles we’ve created our new, big “Why” and we call it “Enlightened Living”.  As our business continues to grow and we embrace the concept of becoming a global brand, I’ve come to realize that to be enlightened is a true anchor point for me and my company.
To be enlightened means to be balanced, thoughtful, and considerate of others. It also means being patient, humble, loving & kind. Especially when the world says you should be otherwise.  Find time to breathe, to walk, to meditate, travel and enjoy your love ones while you can.  I guarantee the world and all its challenges will wait.

Three Advantages of Private Branding

Laguna Candles is committed to  understanding and meeting the needs of our clients through our Private Label program. There are many advantages of Private label Branding, and below are three  that we have found to be very beneficial.

Sandy Lane Hotel Kalish %26 Sons  The Grand Del Mar

1. Loyalty

Private label branding is one way to build customer loyalty from people who like your products. High quality brands with limited accessibility to a large customer base help you gain loyalty from core customers. Your customers feel attached to your brand and product.

2. High Margins

Private label Branding is one way to separate yourself from competitors. One of the greatest attributes of private labels is that you inherently have an exclusive right to sell the products. If you market the brand well and create demand for it.  This contributes to your ability to charge premium prices.

3. Wholesaler

With the right quantity  you could operate as a wholesaler of your brand and offer limited access to other retailers who pay you premium acquisition costs for the right to carry your Private Label Candles This not only generates more income, but it also spreads the exposure of your brand even further. A relationship with a high volume re-seller can lead to more customers buying your Private label Candles.

Luxury Scents with Intent!

IMG_20141005_185825_resizedUnlike some other aromatic woods, sandalwood (a class of fragrant woods from trees in the genus Santalum) keeps its rich, sweet and warm scent for decades.  Sandalwood oil serves as the base note that both enhances them and helps them last longer. As a harmonizing agent, it brings together other aromas, without overpowering them. All these qualities make sandalwood oil one of the most valuable ingredients of the high-end natural fragrance products.

Speaking about luxury scented candles, sandalwood appears as one of the most refined fragrances, capable to make a divine atmosphere in your personal space. According to some of the traditions of the East, its sensual flavor calms and focuses the mind and relieves anxiety, which makes it perfect  for the quick recovery from a hard day. Besides, it can can nicely complement a romantic evenings, by relieving tension and mental blocks.
