Five reasons why I buy local!

 

 

What an honor it was to be featured in the March issue of Orange Coast Magazine a few years ago. There are times when I felt that our family owned business would not seen by the many. When we received that call from one of the editors from Orange Coast Magazine, we were honored.

Now let's address the Benefits Of Buying Local!

Why should we buy Local you might ask? Here are five good reasons:

1. It helps create jobs:  One of the reasons why I hire local artisans to make our Heirloom Artisan Candles is simply because I sincerely want to do my part to support local artist in my community here in Laguna. Small are the largest employers nationally and within our community.

 

2. You get get better as well as personable service:  Here at Laguna Candles we stand behind our product 100%. If you are not happy return it! Local business often hire people with a better understanding of their product.

3.It reduces Environmental Impact: Locally owned business can make more local purchases requiring less transportation. Which ultimately contributes to less congestion and pollution.

4. It allows you to invest in your community: Local businesses are owned by people who live in the community!  Local businesses are less likely to leave and more invested in the community's future. We have so created many private label candles for other companies.

5. It gives the local business the opportunity  to support themselves and the community: Several studies have shown that when you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms -- continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community. I hope you have a willingness to get to know our brand, and I would love to get to know and support yours!

The experience of fragrance and the candle!

Laguna Candles has always sought to bring one of the cleanest burning, Coconut blend candles to market. We spend hours of research with fragrance as well. Did you know that the essential oil from lemon helps with concentration and is also a natural insect repellent.  Lavender is beneficial in helping sooth headaches, sleep problems, anxiety and depression.  Jasmine is beneficial for calming tension and improving alertness.  Not just a candle but an experience!
