When I decided to create a candle line, I knew that I had to be connected to what I was making on a personal level. As it is for many of you, music is a part of my life I couldn't live without! All Electric Notes Candles LLC products are inspired by some of my favorite songs. I wanted to create candles with a look that would blend right in with all of your black clothes, spikes, and album covers ;) I hope you enjoy lighting them as much as I enjoy making them!
The candles are hand-poured in small batches of 4-6 at a time. They are made from a parasoy wax blend consisting of soy wax, paraffin wax, and vegetable waxes, and I use fragrance oils and cotton wicks. Soy lends the candle a longer burn time and is renewable while paraffin allows for stronger scent throw and bright colors.
All of the packaging and shipping materials are eco-friendly and I do not use any plastic, styrofoam, or bubble wrap. Candles jars can be washed and reused or recycled. (I show you how to do this the easy way on the tutorial page!) I only use paper products for shipping materials - heavy kraft paper, cardboard, glassine bags, etc. Everything can be recycled! The shipping labels are made from recycled paper as well.
(As mentioned in the FAQs, a great benefit of using soy wax is that it is renewable, even if the wax poses other environmental issues. And while it would be great if we stopped using fossil fuels altogether, paraffin wax is only a by-product of the oil refining process, i.e. no one drills oil specifically just to make wax.)
