Hello and welcome to our very first Nox & Vesta blog post!
We are going to start off by saying a huge thank you to every one of you who have purchased a candle or supported our content! Our small team of three couldn't have done any of this without the support of each and every single one of you. As we are preparing and packing our candles for shipping, we want all of you to know that we read every single one of your comments. We love that so many of you are just as excited for the candles as we are.
One of our core beliefs at Nox & Vesta is to be as environmentally friendly and as ethical as possible. Therefore, we strive to provide a sustainable yet sophisticated candle to our audience. With this objective, the prices for our raw materials will inevitably go up, as we always source ethically and sustainably. We use a recyclable glass vessel, our maple wood lids are sourced and manufactured right here in the US. The candles are made with our proprietary blend of coconut and apricot wax, both of which are paraffin free and create a cleaner and safer burn. In our fragrance development, we make sure to only use the safest fragrance oils, free of any carcinogens and toxins, and in many cases, using naturally derived oils. At Nox & Vesta, we are proud of our candles, and we hope that you will be just as proud to burn them in your homes.
This leads to another of our core beliefs: we believe in providing our employees with a living wage. We do everything, from start to finish. This includes fragrance creation, wax blending and pouring, wicking our vessels, etching our lids, sealing our lids, and packing all of this up into one decadent candle to send your way! In order for everything we provide to be up to our standard, everything from design to production is done in house. All of this is very labor intensive, and we feel that our team deserves to be compensated at a fair wage. With the support from all of you, we don't plan on outsourcing but rather expanding our company by supporting local workers with a livable wage.
Once again, we would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our supporters so far, and we look forward to sharing all of our new projects and expansions for the brand!
