“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” – Gautama Buddha
The aroma of scented candles soothes the soul and arouses the senses. I love the ambience of a flickering flame and overall feeling of peace, tranquility and warmth it evokes.
What I don’t like is the soot and residue most candles leave behind. Not only do you see this inside the glass jar, but sometimes on your sheers and walls if not extinguished with much care.
I’ve spent an exorbitant amount of money on candles over the years and since COVID-19, my use has skyrocketed due to working and being at home more than I ever have in my life. I’ve tried them all and embarked on a quest to find soy based, quality scents with limited chemical release.
Mission accomplished! I purchased an array of candles from Beaver Mountain Candle Company and fell in love. The scents are wonderful while the price is affordable, unlike many of the retailers marketing their goods. I’ve just placed another order and am so excited for their arrival.
What’s even more important to me is the support they show to our veterans. Beaver Mountain Candle Company donates 5% of each online order to veterans’ charities which are carefully vetted to ensure the maximum amount of their donation goes directly toward the cause.
When I find something I like, I am a customer for life and loyalty is more important than ever right now during this pandemic. Our small businesses need us.
