Frequently asked questions
Why do you bold a lot of words in your news updates?
Thanks for asking! I do this because it helps readability in some people with dyslexia, autism, ADHD, and other conditions that can affect the ability to process written language. I am also included in this group, as I have ADHD and likely undiagnosed autism, and bolding important words and phrases makes it easier for me to proofread the updates before I post them!
Why does it take so long to ship a candle?
Simply put: I can't afford to keep inventory. I can keep the supplies on hand, but with roughly 700 variations on products, I simply can't stock them. It is likely I will begin to keep inventory once I have more robust sales data on what are the most popular sizes and fragrances, but "it is not this day".
Why are the Happy Candles so expensive?
The Happy Series is my pride and joy, but they take 4-6 hours to make each. I am wokring on speeding up that time drastically, but those measures have yet to be implemented, as little has proven effective yet. Beyond simply improving my equipment to get an industrial wax melter (which is over $1,000!) that allows me to keep my wax at a consistent temperature, most of the time to make the Happy Series is from heating and cooling time for each layer - the more layers, the longer it takes to make.
