Candles With Purpose
HAND-POURED LAYERS WITH PURPOSE TO OTHERS!
ALL VARIETIES of our candles are hand-poured by the Exceptional Children’s Foundation and the Light 4 Life Cause, which employs and empowers developmentally disabled adults and children. Read below about our unique candle-making processes and about the wonderful foundations which these candles support.
Our Candle Making Process: Three-tiered Scented Pillar
We have three fabulous layers in our pillar candles which allow for both function and beauty:
The Top First Layer is infused with 12% fragrance which is a SIGNIFICANT amount of fragrance compared to most candles that only have a fraction of this percentage. This allows the fragrance to seep down into the candles’ other layers allowing for excellent permeation of scent.
This is the “hot level” which creates the gorgeous shinny richly colored middle level. Because this layer is “hot-poured”, it seals the amazing fragrance from flowing too quickly to the tertiary level. So you get beauty AND function from this hot-wax process!
The third wax layer has lots of pigment and is “cold-poured” which improves safety and slows burning time. This cold-pouring prevents the wax from burning through quite as quickly.
Our COCO Candles are made with some of (if not THE highest) amount of refined Coconut in the world. That is 80%. Other makes only use a fraction of this amount. That is what makes our candles burn so clean highlighting our intoxicating fragrances.
BRING LIGHT TO THE WORLD BY SUPPORTING GREAT CAUSES
At The Boutique Butterfly, we like to bring joy and light to the world by supporting others. Our candles are made in California by the Light 4 Life cause and the Exceptional Children's Foundation, which are foundations for both developmentally/emotionally disabled adults and children.
