Hello, we’re Chris and Carolyn Griffin, the owners and artisans at A Glowing Trend Handcrafted Candles. Thank you for reading our sparkling new blog! As a small candle company, we want to share tips and tricks for getting the best value out of your candles plus find some other ways to add value to your reading. Personally, I can’t wait until we roll out some of the recipes we have that taste as good as our candles smell!
Our top priority is to provide great smelling, high quality candles that give what you need when you need it. Want to feel energized? Try our Eucalyptus Spearmint. Want to wind down and relax? We have the best Lavender you’ll ever smell.
We’ll get into topics like expected burn times, reusing and repurposing containers and packaging, the best way to burn your candles, and so much more. In the 10 years that we’ve been at this, we have learned a ton about candle making and still discover new ways to go about it all the time! We’ll talk about ingredients that we use and why we use them...or in some cases why we don’t. (Looking at you paraffin wax!)
We’ll bust down some common misconceptions about candles that will also help you to make the best decisions for you when you are in the market to purchase. Even if you don’t buy from us, we want you to be as well informed as possible. After all, you are bringing something into your home that you will literally light on fire!
Ever wonder what it takes to set up for a craft show? We’ll have lots of pictures and talk about everything that goes into it so that you can be prepared if you ever want to set up a booth or table at your local craft fair.
We hope that you will enjoy reading the musings that bounce around in our heads as much as we’ll enjoy writing about them. We’d also love to hear from you to know if there are any topics that you would like for us to talk about. Tell us your ideas in the comments below.
Be seeing you!
