We're so thrilled to be introducing you all to a project that we've been working on for many months: our new line of hand-poured natural soy candles (LIVE now on Kickstarter!)
We're happy to launch our new line with an upgraded, minimal design that features a small gray label and the same delicate handlettering that you all love, now hand poured into natural white ceramic jars!
In addition to being a beautiful part to your home's decor, our new jars are also totally reusable. The glazed interior makes the jars incredibly easy to clean once the candle is burned. We think they look great as a makeup brush holder, desk accessory or even a flower vase.
We're also launching a line of brushed gold mini candles (4 oz), perfect for trying a few scents to see which you like best, or as a travel candle to throw in your carry on! These little gold tins will also be available in our custom gift boxes, and, if we're fully funded, we're planning on offering custom bridal party labels for the lids so that you can include them in your bridesmaid boxes!
Another great addition to the new line is our luxury gift box packaging for our full size candles. As we're sure you can tell, we're all about great gifting here at Foxblossom, that's why we've designed a simple white gift box with a gray threaded closure that's totally ready for gifting. This is unlike anything else on the market, and will surely help you #UpYourGiftGame. You can check out a mockup of our new boxes below.
We proudly use 100% all-natural soy wax made from soy beans grown in the US to make our candles. In fact, all of our materials are eco-friendly and responsibly sourced. Our fragrance blends are made from a blend of essential oils and are safe and completely phthalate free. We also use natural cotton wicks, and hand pour each candle in small batches of about 8-10.
The natural soy wax we use burns slowly and has an amazing hot throw. Our new scents are a mix of classic fragrances (Lavender, Eucalyptus & Spearmint) and unique blends (Rose & Honey, Vetiver & Bergamot). We're also making a wedding candle for all of our wonderful bridal customers called "Bride's Bouquet." This scent smells just like a freshly created bouquet and will surely remind you of your walk down the aisle.
Being a small business has its challenges. While we're rapidly growing, and almost fully self-funded, we have found that going all-in on new product lines is expensive. In order to keep our costs (and prices) as low as possible, we need to meet high minimum order requirements for our custom jars, boxes, and labels. There are also high upfront costs for the quantity of wax, wicks, fragrance oils, etc. required to prepare enough inventory. We're looking to raise $6500 in 30 days, and we need your help to get it done!
If we aren't fully funded within 30 days, these candles may never get made. We need your help to tackle these high upfront costs - every little bit helps!
Our first run of candles will be available exclusively to our Kickstarter backers, at a largely discounted price, with the rest of the line being launched this summer. You can pre-order by pledging and selecting one of our candle tiers, which start at just $10! We're expecting our delivery to be much faster than many other Kickstarter projects, and we expect to start shipping as early as June.
