November, as well as December are hectic months for any business. We here at By the Bay Botanicals are not immune to this especially as people are starting early looking for gift ideas for the holidays. One of the best gifts to give anyone - a teacher, sister, mom, nurse/caregiver, etc. is a candle. Not only are they beautiful, unique aromas can lift spirits, but come in handy during power outages too. Through our company we give more than just candles, our candle line - Destination Scentsations, we give vacations! Sounds crazy but if you think about it each of our scented palm wax candles are inspired by popular travel destinations. So whether you are know someone who can't make it home for the holidays (yet give the gift that reminds them of their hometown/state) or someone who deserves a vacation for all the hard work they do for you, give them the gift of a vacation - in a jar! With regard to narrowing down holiday gift giving lists, keep us in mind for your gift giving needs. Contact us today about what candles you might be ordering in the near future to ensure that our supplies will be full allowing us to guarantee that you're candle orders will be filled and shipped before the holidays. It is ok to place orders now and request to have them shipped at a later date too.
While this might not be of interest to all, a decision has been made to not use the silver "Destination Scentsation" labels on our candles. The main reason is due to the label buckling when adhered to a curved surface like that of our jars. Since the candle line name is already on the lid and making for a more visually stunning candle, we've decided to not use the silver labels any more. This also helps to cut costs allowing us to use that money to improve candle making equipment and purchasing more supplies.
Here's another reason to follow us on Twitter - @BayBotanicals... Lately I have been catching up on some news articles involving candle news and tweeting about them. As the holiday's approach there are more and more articles, from house fires started by candles to candle decorating ideas, I am sharing those articles on Twitter! Why? If you love candles half as much as I do, then chances are there's a lot of info on the topic and one of the best ways to keep up on that info is reading up on the news. In addition to our own company news, I merely want to pass on other candle news to other candle enthusiasts too. Thanks, in advance for following and let me know if you have candle news of your own - I'll be happy to share your candle news on Twitter too!
That is all the news I have for today. Thanks for reading, as more news occurs, that info will be posted here in our blog as well as on our Facebook and Twitter sites. - Michelle
