Summer is Wedding Season: Custom Labeled Candles are Ideal for Decorations and Favors

Planning a wedding? Custom labeled candles are a wedding favor to give to your guests as a way to remember and commemorate the special day. Candles are among wedding decorations and favors that last well beyond the ceremony and are universally liked. In other words, they’re a great choice for a big, diverse group.

A Great Gift and Multifunctional

Candles can double as a decoration and a party favor. We all love candles and a label will make your guests remember the day every time they burn it. Kristin and Company’s custom labeled candles are also a great reception decoration and table topper.

Soy Wax for Safety

Our candles are ideal for wedding decorations and favors because they are made from soy wax, which burns at a lower temperature making them safer than traditional paraffin candles. This is an important consideration for guests with small children.

Recommended scents for custom labeled candles:

Love Spell and Soulmates scents are the perfect scents to celebrate and remember your special day. Another choice you can’t go wrong with if you aren’t sure which scent guests might like is unscented candles.

  • Love Spell
  • Soulmates
  • Unscented

 

Love Spell

Love Spell is a sweet bouquet of blended summer flowers and mandarins.

Flowers – The sweet, refreshing smell of a bouquet of flowers. This is sure to remind guests of all the flowers surrounding the ceremony.

Mandarins – The sweet, citrusy scent that heightens awareness, often added to floral scents.

Originating in China, mandarins are tropical and sub-tropical fruit. This reminder of sunny weather is a perfect match for a summer wedding.

Historically, the Chinese viewed the mandarin as a symbol of good fortune. That certainly bodes well for the beginning of a long marriage! Traditional Chinese beliefs also view oranges as a sign of expected positive change. And marriage certainly brings a lot of positive changes with it. Such references to good luck in the future make the mandarin an appropriate choice for wedding decorations and favors.

Love Spell is available in 8, 16, 18, and 28 ounce sizes.

Soulmates

Soulmates is a light musk with lily of the valley and sandalwood, along with a touch of vanilla.

Lily of the valley – A sweetly scented flower. Adorning expensive weddings of modern-day royalty, candles carrying the scent of lily of the valley are a “sweet” compromise that’s easy on your wallet.

Sandlewood – From a tree indigenous to India, sandlewood holds a dry, woody scent that reduces tension, enhances your mood, and is generally relaxing. It blends well with other scents, lily of the valley and vanilla being no exception!

Vanilla – Indigenous to central Mexico, the vanilla bean now grows in multiple locations, Madagascar now being the largest producer. This rich, mellow scent is an enduring favorite that reduces stress. No wonder we insert the scent in so many baked goods. However, no need to bake anything to enjoy the scent when your guests go home with this vanilla-laden candle.

Soulmates is available in 8, 16, 18, and 28 ounce sizes.

Unscented

Unscented candles are another good choice for a couple of reasons. Some people are sensitive to smell or have preferences for certain scents and not others. An unscented candle allows you to appeal to all tastes.

Why Label?

Why are custom labeled candles a good idea? Custom labeled candles add a personal touch to the day and a way for guests to take a keepsake of the day home with them. They’re like the playbill to a good play. Only, in this case you’re not acting – your day is actually here!

What Should the Label Say?

The label could simply have the bride’s and groom’s names, wedding date, and location. Clean and simple to commemorate the special day.

Additonally, it’s wise to include the name of the candle and its description. This is especially helpful if you purchase multiple candles for guests to choose from.

Remember, even on the largest candle, label space is limited and you don’t want the label to be too cluttered. No worries, however, because our in-house design team can help you come up with a label design. You have enough to deal with preparing for the wedding.

How Should the Label Be Designed?

There are so many options! Do you have wedding colors? A candle that coordinates is the perfect way to commemorate the day and tie your party favor into the day’s theme.

Stick to the Script?

A calligraphy script is traditional and elegant, but a modern look can be sophisticated too.

Remember Proportions

Then there’s the size and shape of your labels. One element that should determine this is the size and shape of the candle it’s labeling. You want the label to be proportional to the candle.

A summary of custom labeled candles’ label ideas:

  • Bride and groom names
  • Location of wedding
  • Date of wedding
  • Scent name
  • Candle and scent ingredients
  • Where candle was made
  • Greeting message
  • Candle weight
  • Estimated burn time
  • A decoration or embellishment
  • Candle safety tips

  • From base to torch, the Statue of Liberty is 305 feet 6 inches tall!

Fun facts:

  • The colors of the flag signify hardiness and valor (red); purity and innocence (white); and vigilance, perseverance, and justice (blue).
  • Inspiring the “Star-Spangled Banner” in 1814 and the Pledge of Allegiance in 1892, the U.S. flag has been flown on the North Pole, Mt. Everest, and even in outer space!

Decoration tips:

  • Pick up some red, white, and blue streamers at a party store. Weave them together to make a textile for the table. Create a plaid pattern or a design that resembles the American flag.
  • Purchase three disposable vinyl table clothes: red, white, and blue. Cut a strip from each, tape them together, and place a Freedom candle where red and white meet, and another Freedom candle where white and blue come together.

  • Pick up red, white, and blue handkerchiefs for your guests to use as napkins.
  • Use a red and white checkered cloth tablecloth for something that can be used every day, not just the holiday.

  • Burn Time: 70+ Hours

  • In 1777, Philadelphia celebrated the Fourth of July with fireworks to mark the one-year anniversary of our country.
  • Americans explode nearly one pound of fireworks per person in the U.S.

Decoration tips:

  • Find a tablecloth at a party store with fireworks as its repeated pattern.
  • Locate wrapping paper with a fireworks design.
  • Take matters into your own hands. Literally! Tie dye a white cotton table cloth with red and blue dye!
  • Short on time? Buy some star-shaped red, white, and blue confetti and sprinkle it on the tablecloth. Done! The haphazardness of it is, in this case, quite charming!
  • Have kids? Give them red, white, and blue crayons and large sheets of manila sketching paper. Even if the children are young and can’t draw (recognizable) fireworks, it will still look cool and guests will get the gist.
  • Cut the paper left over that hasn’t been spilled on and recycle it into refrigerator art or wrapping paper. Or, think of your own use!
  • Buy doilies in red, white, and blue and place at random on the table.
  • Pick up some red, blue, and gold star stickers – you know, the ones you got in elementary school when you did a good job on a spelling test? Take a white tablecloth and use the stickers to create a festive pattern. Enjoy the nostalgia and have fun!

Earthy Scents for Earth Day

Earthy Scents for Earth Day

Light a Candle to Celebrate Earth Day!

Earth Day is coming up on Sunday, April 22! There are many ways to celebrate Earth Day. Some people plant a tree. Others join public forums to discuss how to protect our planet. One way to protect the Earth is to reduce CO2 emissions. Kristin and Company uses soy wax – as opposed to paraffin – to make our candles. This means that our candles burn clean. We even carry a special selection of earthy scents. Celebrate this Earth Day with Earthy scents for Earth Day from Kristin and Company!

**Buy One Get One 50% off on all Earthy Scents, April 4-23, 2018**

Soy Candles Are an Eco-Friendly Alternative to Regular Candles

Soy candles burn clean. After burning paraffin candles, black soot collects on the candle jar’s glass interior as well as on top of the candle. The soot coats the walls, drapes, and furniture in your home. The result? Candle burning means more frequent cleaning is needed. Additionally, cleaning doesn’t always result in a room being as clean as it was before. Clean burning candles offer you a chance to enjoy candles without the sooty side effects.

In other words, soy candles are perfect for Earth Day (and any other day!).

Candles that Honor Earth Day

Soy candles are the first innovation in candles in a century. As people are more concerned with the environment and their health, consumers are demanding eco-friendly solutions.

However, to get there, people have to demand changing the status quo.

Earth Day Set the Tone

The first Earth Day was in 1970, even before the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, or Endangered Species Act.

Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin started Earth Day to bring environmental issues to the forefront of national discussion, with bipartisan support in congress. On the first Earth Day, 20 million Americans participated in demonstrations across the country. In response, congress created the EPA.

Earth Day Goes Global!

In 1990, Earth Day went global, reaching 141 countries. Prompted by the momentum, two years later saw the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit. In 2015, 196 parties across the globe signed The Paris Climate Accord, an agreement among countries to do their part to hold the global temperature at 2 degrees Celsius below pre-industrial levels.

Today, Earth Day is the largest secular observance celebrated around the world.

We look forward to many Earth Days to come!

These New Spring Scents Make for the Perfect Spring

Winter Melts Into Spring

No pun intended! As winter winds down, it time to think about Spring. You change your dark wardrobe to pastels, your sheets from flannel to a lighter fabric, and you finish your chili to stock up on food that’s less hearty and more suited for the season. So, why not do the same for candles and try new spring scents? Our holiday collections prepare you for winter and now we’re adding two fresh new spring candle scents to brighten up your Spring.

Spring into the season with a Kristin candle

Spring has nearly sprung and on April 1, Kristin and Company is introducing new spring candle scents that are perfect for welcoming in the warm weather and fresh breezes.

What are Kristin’s new scents for Spring? (Drum roll, please!)

Our new spring scents available beginning April 1 are: Summer Breeze and Water Lily!

  • Water Lily is a soft and delicate fragrance featuring a citrus and floral blend.
  • Summer Breeze is the perfect summertime sweet aroma of creamy coconut.

How often does Kristin & Co. release new scents?

We typically release new scents in January and August as well as a special collection around the winter holidays!

What is Kristin’s process for creating new scents?

At Kristin & Company we are always excited to create new scents. Then there comes the tricky part: deciding on which scents to add to our store.

Creating new scents is a group effort among our staff. We read comments and reviews from our customers because customers are our priority. We want to provide our loyal customers with the scents they wish existed.

Once we decide on the scents, we hand pour test candles. We burn them in our office so we can get a sense of how the scent smells initially, as well as after being exposed to it for a while. Then we vote on what we liked and disliked.

From there, we decide on the time of year appropriate to each scent. Once that’s settled, we start making our new scented candles right here in our facility in Standish, Michigan.

Why do these scents work well for spring?

Water Lily’s blend of citrus and florals is perfect for the time of year when flowers start blooming again.

Summer Breeze harkens what’s next: the season of cool breezes on the beach. Creamy coconut brings in a tropical element that’s relaxing.

How do these scents make Spring better?

Our new spring scents, Water Lily and Summer Breeze, take what’s going on outside in nature and brings it indoors so you can enjoy it in your home as well.

In short, Spring should be sweet, citrusy, and floral

And our new spring scents do just that!

  • Sweet
  • Citrusy
  • Floral

Sweet

Sweet scents help you concentrate and enhances your performance taking tests or other tasks that require concentration.

The scent of coconut can reduce stress and help you relax. So, whether you’re taking the SATs or Spring cleaning, our Summer Breeze scent with coconut might be the unlikely answer!

In addition to our new spring scents, our other sweet scents include:

  • Sugar Cookie
  • Butterscotch Oatmeal
  • Caramel Cookie
  • Cinnamon Bun
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Snickerdoodle
  • Sugar Cookie
  • Cinnamon
  • Spiced Clove
  • Apple Pie
  • Sweet Pea
  • Vanilla

Citrusy

With Spring being the season of new growth, our new spring scents wouldn’t be complete without a fruity scent.

Citrus is a bold scent with a lot to admire!

Burn a candle in the morning to brighten up your day and set the tone for the rest of the day. Clear your mind of all negative thoughts and emotions before stepping out the door.

Citrus fruit, floral, and winter spice scents calm and sooth the mind and body and keep your stress levels in check. Fruity scents can even treat insomnia and cure a headache. Citrus scents put you in a happy and energetic mood, uplifting both the mind and body.

The smell of orange is often used in aromatherapy to treat depression. Though not a substitute for medication, this citrus scent can help you relax and brings on pleasant thoughts, and puts you in a happy mood. Additionally, medical studies suggest orange aromatherapy can boost cognitive function for people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Citrus complements well with other scents, especially florals, making them more earthy and deep. This is what we did with our new Water Lily scent!

In addition to our new spring scents, our other citrusy scents include:

  • Citrus and Basil
  • Orange Spice 

Floral

Florals. The scent of romance!

Floral scents are good for your mood and reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression. The scent acts to decrease your breathing rate and blood pressure to help you relax. The scent also brings energy and positive and uplifting thoughts. It can also help relieve headaches. That’s a lot of benefits for one type of scent!

In 2008, Park and Mattson found that patients in hospital rooms with bright flowers and potted plants “needed less postoperative pain medication, had lower systolic blood pressure and pulse rates, were less anxious and tired, and generally were in a more positive psychological state than patients in rooms without plants.”

Researchers at Wageningen University in the Netherlands found that patrons with fresh flowers on their restaurant tables seemed to be in better moods.

Florals are good complements to other fragrances. That’s why we mixed floral with citrus to create our Water Lily scent!

In addition to our new spring scents, our other floral options include: 

  • Best Friends
  • Lavender
  • Lavender and Vanilla
  • Lilac
  • Love Spell
  • Magnolia
  • Midnight Pomegranate
  • Sensuous Bloom
  • Sweet Pea
  • Twilight
  • Wildflowers

From Then to Now

In Cyprus, archaeologists discovered a 4,000-year-old buried perfumery. Some things never get old and it seems that the appreciation for soothing scents is one of them!

From ancient Cyprus to modern-day Michigan, at Kristin and Company we hope to continue the candle tradition for years (or centuries!) to come. We’re constantly taking old scents and both honoring tradition and using old, familiar scents to create something new. That’s what we did with Water Lily and Summer Breeze. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Pleasant scents have a range of benefits

Many benefits of candle scents aren’t specific to one fragrance. These perks include:

  • Enhances mood
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Triggers happy memories
  • Relaxing
  • Therapeutic
  • Smell great!

Candles Improve the Mood

Candles that smell good are also good for your health. Candles play a role in emotion and mood. So why not improve your mood if a candle is all it takes? If you’re feeling stressed out at work, for example, a relaxing candle can help you leave work at the office and focus on having a romantic evening with your sweetheart. After all, stress doesn’t really complement a leisurely dinner sipping wine!

In addition, many couples focus on their relationship on Valentine’s Day, but neglect it other times of the year. Like February 15 anyone? Instead of celebrating Valentine’s Day, why not extend that tranquil quality time the rest of the year? A candle can evoke your memory of Valentine’s Day so you can extend the love for the rest of the year!

Lastly, candles improve concentration. If you give undivided attention to your spouse rather than, say, your phone, you’re bound to have an enjoyable night!

An International Affair

Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the globe. It is a joyous celebration of appreciation of your significant other, family, and friends. Chaucer and Shakespeare romanticized the holiday, popularizing the day in Europe. The tradition eventually made its way across the pond to become the holiday we know today.

Today people in Britain, France, Australia, South Korea, the Philippines, Mexico, Canada and, of course, the United States enjoy Saint Valentine’s Day.
