One of the most ignored but vital aspects of your home is its signature fragrance. Afterall, one of the first things someone notices when they enter your home is the smell, and no one likes a bad first impression, right? To this day, certain scents might bring back a fond memory of childhood— the smell of freshly mown grass, bright new buds of honeysuckle, or the mouthwatering aroma of your mom’s freshly baked apple pie.
Whatever it is, your signature scent should make a (good) statement with visitors to your home. So… what happens when you and your partner can’t agree on a fragrance? Are you doomed to have a subtly stinky home forever?! Nah, we’ve got you covered, don’t worry.
Candles are a great way to liven up any space from a home decor and fragrance perspective, but when exactly did candles become more about aesthetics than simply provide light? Let’s take a stroll through the ages, shall we?
You know when you go to the store and buy a new candle and you cannot wait to get home to try it out? You clean your space, light that candle, and life is good.
But then, when you blow it out, half of the candle has already melted away and disappeared! Yeah, we hate when that happens too. Commitment to quality should start at the foundation, which is why Kalamazoo Candle Company uses only pure soy wax for our candle base. Here are our reasons why.
We’ve succeeded in convincing you to repurpose your Kalamazoo Candle Co. jars, hooray! If you’ve ever spilled hot wax on clothing or… well… anywhere, you already know how impossible it can be to remove. With that in mind, it must be equally difficult to clear out the wax remnants and residue from your used up candle jars, right? No way! We’ve got you.
