What’s A Candle Box?

A candle box is an online subscription service where you pay a flat fee for a candle to be delivered to your house every month. You can often either pay for a year upfront or pay as you go once each month rolls around.

This option for candle shopping is becoming increasingly popular in today’s modern world. People love the convenience of it and will pay for nearly anything to be delivered to their house, as long as they don’t have to leave it. This is why food delivery services are thriving so much right now. We live in a world full of luxury, so why throw candles in the mix?

How It Works

The way it works at Wicksly is relatively simple. When you enter the site, you’ll see the option to get started. Right away, you’ll be able to choose your subscription frequency. You can pick a monthly option or pre-pay for either three or six months in advance. There is also a yearly option for people who are fully committed to their candles.

Once you select your frequency, you’ll checkout and enter your shipping information. After that, the process is complete! All you have to do is wait for your candle to arrive at your doorstep. As long as you sign up by the 25th of the month, you’ll receive the next month’s candle.

Why You Should Try It

If you’re wondering what the advantages are to an online candle subscription box, here are a few reasons to sign up.

Dreaded Candle Stores

It seems like every time you walk into a candle store, it’s a sensory overload. There are employees everywhere trying to sell you things, and the entire store smells like one large candle with a million different scents. After spending about a half-hour there, you end up with a headache.

When you buy your candles online from a luxury store, there is no in-person shopping required. Each month, you’ll get to smell the carefully curated scent that Wicksly has chosen for you. Even if you don’t fall in love with your candle that month, the next month, you’ll receive a totally different aroma to enjoy.

Scents Just For You

Often when you are looking for a specific scent profile, the candle stores are sold out of it. That’s because these stores are constantly low on stock and switching out the candles before you even had the chance to come back for more.

At Wicksly, we know exactly what scent is suitable for the season that you’re experiencing. Each month of the year brings different feelings to mind and, therefore, different aromas. We’re talking warm and cozy scents for winter and fresh florals for summer.

Peace Of Mind

There are a lot of candle companies out there who value profit over quality. This means that you never know what kind of dangerous materials are included in the wax and wicks of cheap candles you find in stores or on other websites. They might source their ingredients from other countries whose safety precautions are looser than the USA’s.

When you buy candles from Wicksly, each candle is guaranteed to be non-toxic and made in the USA. They are made with soy wax and the most refined essential oils for maximum scent throw. When a candle is made, it is tested for quality assurance before it’s sent to your door.

Exploring New Scents

We all have our favorite scented candle. Humans tend to be creatures of habit and stick to what they know. But that can also mean that you’re missing out on a lot of new experiences. Wicksly allows you to step out of your comfort zone and try new scents each month.

You never know when you could discover your new favorite smell. Each candle that is sent your way is designed to be a new journey for your nose. Don’t be afraid to inhale adventure.

How Long Does The Candle Last Each Month?

We’re glad you asked. Every one of our candles has a 40 hour burn time. They are designed to last you all month long, so you get the most out of your candle. They come in a small container, but that doesn’t make them any less potent. The quality of the wax ensures that the scent will be long-lasting and spread throughout your home.

Soy wax can burn three times as long as a paraffin wax candle. Plus, our candles are clean-burning and support the American farm industry. Many modern candles are made of paraffin wax today, but this type of wax is a by-product of making gasoline and releases dangerous chemicals into the air, like toluene.

Candles made of this type of wax also produce soot when they are lit. Inhaling the smoke from this candle can damage your health and increase your risk of cancer. Always make sure that you trim your candle wicks if they get longer than 15 millimeters. After you blow out a candle, ventilate the room for 15 minutes.

Our Difference

If you still aren’t sold on candle boxes, let us show you why we’re different than mass-produced candles. Shipping is always including in your monthly membership, and you can cancel anytime. We guarantee once you try Wicksly, you’ll never go back to regular in-store candles again.

Perfect For Holiday Gifts

There is never a bad time for candles. Wicksly makes the perfect gift for someone, no matter what time of year. Christmas, Hanukkah. Valentine’s Day, birthday, you name it. Everyone loves scented candles, and giving the gift of a subscription to a candle delivery service is the best way to show someone how much you care.

Candles can be romantic or a sign of true friendship. So if you’re stumped about what to get your partner or mother for their birthday, consider getting them a candle subscription box. They deserve it!

Wrapping Up

There are so many places that you can incorporate a candle into your life. They’re excellent for the office when you’re trying to create a cozier environment. They can also go in the bathroom to add a refreshing scent to a small space. They will also make a great addition to your bedroom decor when you’re trying to spice things up. Just make sure you keep them a safe distance from your bed!

Candle subscriptions make life a breeze. They’re designed to fit your needs and the needs of your family too. Adding a high-quality candle to your home will ignite the spark that you need each day to keep persevering.
