Do you want to start designing your own candle brand but aren’t sure where to start? We have put together a quick design guide to help you learn more about the process.
Choose your wax
Wax is the base ingredient of most of our products. Therefore, its a great place to start when it comes to product designing. If you want to create a candle or a wax melt you will have a number of choices of wax. Our waxes include natural wax (soy), mineral wax (paraffin) and blended wax (a mix of the two). Once you have selected your wax we will trial different wicks in your product to ensure your candle has an optimum burn time and meets safety standards.
Choose your fragrance
Picking your fragrances is probably one of the most fun parts of the design process. We have so many fantastic in house fragrances to choose from. We offer three main types of fragrances including essential oils, fragrance oils and natural oils.
Essential oils are a popular choice amongst customers wishing to create an all natural product.
Fragrance oils are synthetic and offer the widest range of scent options.
Natural oils are derived from essential oils, these oils offer far more scent choice than essential oils. They also tend to be a more budget friendly choice than essential oils.
Choose your container
We carry a selection of quality, heat-safe tin and glass containers in a range of sizes. You can also provide your own container which we will test to ensure it meets safety standards or we can source something specific for you. We also have a range of in-house glass and tin containers that you can chose from.
Glass is a popular choice as it can be produced in any colour and branded by printing directly on to the glass or using an adhesive label.
Our tin containers come in gold, silver and rose gold. They can be branded with adhesive labels.
Design your packaging
There are a wide variety of packaging materials to choose from. During our meeting we can talk you through your options.
We can provide you with an in-house graphic design service that will make your product stand out. You can also provide your own art work or we are able to recommend a number of companies providing a comprehensive graphic design service.
