Why did we create a self-extinguishing candle?
Every year, there are nearly 10,000 candle related fires in the United States. The main cause of these fires - an unattended or neglected candle.
You should feel comfortable lighting a candle in your bedroom as you unwind from a long day. Yet, one of the most dangerous scenarios is that a person falls asleep while a candle is lit - as this candle may burn for 8+ hours unattended.
You should be able to light a candle in your bathroom, kitchen, or any room - yet there is always the risk that you forget to blow it out.
Because of these risks, candles all too often simply become a home decor piece - as there is never that 'perfect' time to light it. Perhaps you even decided to purchase an LED candle, since you love the look of a lit candle, but you don't like the risk that comes with a flame. However, you miss the fragrance and warmth that comes with a traditional candle. Nirvana Candle offers the peace of mind that comes with a LED candle, while maintaining the experience of a traditional candle.
Nirvana Candle limits the risk of a traditional candle by capping the amount of time the candle may be neglected. This allows you to be much more comfortable lighting your candle on a regular basis, rather than just for special occasions. We change those "should" moments, to "will" moments.
Remember, this is not the candle you should simply ignore - there will always be risks associated with open flames. You should never purposefully neglect a candle, nor should you leave a burning candle unattended.
Okay - I like the idea of a self-extinguishing candle, but is the candle itself any good?
Short answer - yes. When it comes to fragrances, we strongly believe it is more important to have quality rather than quantity. That being said, we will initially stock some of the most popular seasonal fragrances, along with a few year-round fragrances.
The candle itself is poured in-house. We considered outsourcing production, but in the end we wanted to be responsible for the quality of the candle. Each candle produced is made from 100% soy, which is much more eco-friendly compared to its paraffin wax counterpart.
Features & Benefits of Soy Wax (vs Paraffin)
|Cleaner burning||No toxins|
|No carcinogens or pollutants||Less likely to trigger allergies|
|No petrol-carbon soot||Does not soot walls or ceilings|
|Burns longer & cooler||Burns 30-50% longer|
Alright, I'm sold... how do I buy?
We are currently raising money for production. The best way to support Nirvana Candle is by signing up for our Newsletter. Through this Newsletter, you will receive updates surrounding the launch of our Kickstarter.
Kickstarter is a website that many companies turn to in order to raise money for the initial costs that must occur to bring a product to life. Through the Kickstarter, you will be able to pre-order a candle at a significant discount. We will also offer a few other small bonuses for being one of our first customers. It is important to note, that there is very little risk on your side. We have already received the quotes from suppliers, and know the amount of money it will take to get the candle from prototype to finished product at your doorstep. The way Kickstarter works, your card is not charged until we hit our fundraising goal. If we do not hit the fundraising goal, then your card will never be charged.
We will provide more details surrounding the exact discounts and bonuses when the Kickstarter is launched.
We are aiming to launch the Kickstarter this fall, then give the thumbs up to our manufacturing partners to create the custom containers. We plan to ship finished product by Winter 2018.
