Mass Produced vs Hand-made Candles

Mass produced vs hand-made candles

Candles are one of the most popular home fragrance products, and for good reason. They create a warm and inviting atmosphere, add a touch of elegance, and help in relaxation. But with so many options on the market, it can be difficult to know which type of candle to choose.

Mass Produced Candles

Mass-produced candles are exactly what they are – candles that are made in large quantities by machine. These candles are often made with cheap materials to keep costs low. While mass-produced candles can be an affordable option, there are some downsides to consider.

  1. Quality – Mass-produced candles are often made with cheap materials, which can affect the quality of the candle. The scent may not be as strong or long-lasting, and the candle may not burn as cleanly or evenly as a handmade candle.
  2. Chemicals – Many mass-produced candles are made using paraffin wax, leaving you with a sooty mess. If you place the candle near a wall you will see an unsightly black soot going up the wall.
  3. Lack of uniqueness – Since mass-produced candles are made in large quantities, they lack the uniqueness and character of handmade candles.

Handmade Candles

  1. Handmade candles are crafted by artisans creators who create each candle individually. These candles are made with high-quality materials and wax, making them a popular choice for those who want a more luxurious and eco-friendly option. Here are some of the benefits of choosing handmade candles: Quality – Handmade candles are often made with higher quality materials, resulting in a candle that burns cleaner, lasts longer, and smells stronger.
  2. Unique – Each handmade candle is unique, with its own character and charm. This makes them a great choice for those who want something special and one-of-a-kind.
  3. Eco-Friendly – Many handmade candles are made with natural, biodegradable materials and fragrances. This makes them a more sustainable and eco-friendly option compared to mass-produced candles.
