Candles have been in use for thousands of years, serving different purposes in different cultures around the world. In recent times, candles have become a popular decor item, with people increasingly looking for unique pieces that reflect their personality and style. Locally produced candles with the use of recycled materials, unique colour palette, non-drip, long-burning, and richly coloured candles made by hand.
As the globe turned its attention to the ever increasing global warming phenomenon, people are becoming more environmentally conscious - this has led to an increase in the demand for environmentally friendly products. Candles are no exception, and South African candle makers are now using recycled materials to create their products. These materials include wax from other candles, old kitchen candles, and even used tea lights. By using recycled materials, candle makers can create unique pieces that are also eco-friendly and affordable.
South African candle makers use a unique colour palette of earthy colours, including different shades of browns, greens, and blues. These colours are in line with the country's natural surroundings, which have diverse landscapes and ecosystems. The colours also reflect the warmth and vibrancy of the South African people.
Ethereal Candle Crafters strive to produce high-quality, long-lasting candles that don't drip or create smoke. These candles burn for longer periods than traditional candles, making them more cost-effective. Additionally, the rich hues of the candles result from the use of high-quality pigments, which are mixed with the wax to create a unique and lasting colour.
Each Ethereal Candle Craft candle is made by hand, which means that no two candles are the same. This makes the candles unique and perfect for customers seeking something different. The handcrafted nature of the candles also means that they are of higher quality than mass-produced alternatives.
Handcrafted candles often incorporate design elements that differ from mass-produced candles in the following ways:
1. Unique scents: Locally made candles often feature scents that are unique and distinct from the standard scents found in mass-produced candles. These scents may be inspired by the local environment, culture, or ingredients.
2. Hand-poured and crafted: Locally produced, hand-poured and crafted in small batches, giving them a distinct look and feel. This often means that each candle is unique in its texture, colour and shape.
3. Natural ingredients: Locally made candles often use natural ingredients that are sourced locally and ethically. This means that they often contain fewer chemicals than mass-produced candles and are more environmentally friendly.
4. Customisation: Ethereal Candle Crafters offers customers the choice of scent, colour and shape. Allowing customers to create candles that meet their unique needs and preferences.
