Scented candles especially natural soy candles are some of the most popular items on the market today. And they are also available online. There is no stopping the Internet from becoming the hottest marketplace in our society today. With the convenience it offers, it has become the popular choice for people who do not have the luxury of time to do manual shopping. However even though it is a convenient way to shop, online shopping comes with two major drawbacks, namely:
1. There’s no way to smell the fragrance of the candle you’re buying. You wouldn’t know if the highly scented soy candles are indeed highly scented.
2. It is not always easy to tell if you are dealing with a reputable company or just some person working from home. Fortunately, there are some ways to ensure that you get only the finest quality of candles. Here are some tips to follow when you shop for scented candles online:
Tip 1: First, you have to make sure that the online store you choose to buy from is legitimate and an accredited supplier of candles. You can judge a site’s legitimacy based on its layout and design, and brands sold. To be doubly sure, check with the candle company if a particular store is an accredited supplier. Don’t buy from online stores that do not provide contact information such as address and phone number.
Tip 2: Carefully read the description of the candle provided by the online store. Make sure that you only buy candles that are made from natural materials like soy or vegetable wax, which are non-toxic, environmentally friendly and safe.
Tip 3: Read customer reviews to get a gauge of the store’s services and products. An online store responding positively to negative remarks is a good sign.
Tip 4: Since you won’t be able to smell the fragrance for yourself, be sure that you are familiar with the name of the scent you intend to purchase. If you’re not sure about how ocean breeze smells like, opt for more traditional scents like vanilla or strawberry. If you want richly scented candles, ask the store about which products are designed to emit stronger scents.
Tip 5: Get the assurance from the store that you’re buying a lead-free wick.
Tip 6: It is a good idea to try an online store’s customer service before purchasing. Make a call and see how efficient their customer representative responds to inquiries and concerns.
Tip 7: Don’t forget to make a thorough study of an online store’s shipping policies, shipping prices and duration of shipping.
