7 Steps for Candle Care!

At Laguna Candles we want you to experience the maximum enjoyment and pleasure from our candles. We take great pride in using only the finest quality ingredients and materials. Please follow these seven suggestions for candle care to keep Laguna Candles a bright and beautiful part of your life.

1. Keep wick(s) trimmed to 1/4” at all times.
If smoking occurs, use a candle snuffer to extinguish the flame, trim wicks, remove trimmings, then relight.
2. Keep the wick centered. It will help your candles burn evenly and protect the sides of your holder, which could be damaged by close contact with the flame.

3.Never extinguish a candle by blowing, as it may cause splashing and wax spills. Always use a Laguna Candles snuffer or Laguna Candles wick dipper.

4. Never leave burning candles unattended.

5. Never move candles when lit.
In an emergency, never try to extinguish flame with water, use baking soda to extinguish the flame.

6. Store candles in a cool, dry place to avoid color fading, melting or cracking.

7. Keep candles out of direct sunlight to prevent fading and warping.
Over time, candles may become scratched or seem to lose their fragrance. Rub gently with a fine mesh stocking to heighten the gloss, remove any scratches and release the fragrance from your candles.

Six Reasons why we love Reed Diffusers!

Laguna Candles Apothecary Diffuser 2a

Adding scent to my home is one of the best affordable luxuries I know. Nothing makes a home seem more romantic, cozy, or sophisticated than the right scent. Scenting my surroundings makes me feel completely pampered but really doesn’t cost very much. There are many ways to scent my home, including scented candles. Reed Diffusers are one of my absolute favorite products to scent my home, and there are many reasons why:

1) Reed diffusers offer value. Reed diffusers are very simple products. They consist of a decorative jar, reeds, and scented oil. Each diffuser lasts weeks or months and once all the oil has evaporated, you only need to replace the reeds and the scented oil. This makes diffusers far more cost-effective than many types of products, which last far less time and need to be replaced entirely.

2) Reed diffusers have aromatherapy value. In order for aromatherapy to work, you need to use essential oils, not synthetic scented products. Unfortunately, most home décor scent products use synthetic fragrances, making them an imperfect match for aromatherapy use. Reed diffusers, on the other hand, can use essential oils, and therefore allow you to easily add some aromatherapy benefits to your environment.

3) Reed diffusers are safer and healthier than many types of scented products. Reed diffusers, quite simply, do not make use of flame. This is not only safer, as it means that reed diffusers do not pose a fire risk. Unlike products involving open flame, diffusers do not produce soot and other toxins. Reed diffusers that use essential oils may also be less harmful than products which use some synthetic scents.

4) Reed diffusers can be used in many places, including areas where other home scent products can’t be used. Many public places – including hotel rooms and offices – ban the use of candles because of the risk of fire. In addition, many scented sprays should not be used around children or pets. Reed diffusers can be used in many places where other products simply cannot be used.

5) Reed diffusers offer many scents. Reed diffusers come in an array of scents. One is sure to fit your mood. I

6) Reed diffusers are very simple to use. There is no spraying or trimming of wicks. In fact, once you place the reeds in the diffuser, you can forget about it. Every once in a  while you can refresh the scent by turning the reeds over, but essentially diffusers work on their own, filling your home with a wonderful scent.

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.
