Frequently Asked Questions:
Where are we located?
We are currently located in Lethbridge, AB, Canada, while we are finishing up our degrees at the University of Lethbridge! We will be moving our operations to YYC in September 2023 once we graduate!
Why do we use soy wax?
Natural soy wax is considered the best choice for candles by many people because it offers several advantages over other types of wax, such as paraffin wax or beeswax.
Firstly, soy wax is made from soybeans, which is a renewable resource that is grown in many parts of the world. This makes it a more sustainable and environmentally friendly choice compared to paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum, a non-renewable resource.
Secondly, soy wax is biodegradable and therefore, it does not have a negative impact on the environment. This is not the case with paraffin wax, which is not biodegradable and can contribute to pollution and waste.
Thirdly, soy wax burns cleaner and produces less soot than paraffin wax, which means it is better for indoor air quality and reduces the need for frequent cleaning.
Lastly, soy wax has a lower melting point than other types of wax, which means that it burns slower and lasts longer.
Overall, natural soy wax is considered the best choice for candles because it is sustainable, environmentally friendly, clean-burning, and cost-effective.
Why wooden wicks?
Wooden wicks offer a unique aesthetic and several benefits compared to traditional cotton wicks.
1. wooden wicks create a beautiful flame that adds a natural and rustic touch to candles. The flame produced by wooden wicks is wider and taller than traditional cotton wicks, which creates a beautiful ambiance and a cozy atmosphere.
2. wooden wicks burn more cleanly and evenly than cotton wicks, which reduces the amount of soot and residue left behind. This makes them a great choice for people who are sensitive to scents or suffer from allergies.
3. wooden wicks produce a distinct crackling sound when burning, which adds an extra sensory dimension to the candle experience. This sound is similar to the sound of a campfire, which can be very soothing and relaxing.
4. wooden wicks are made from natural materials and are therefore more sustainable and eco-friendly than cotton wicks, which are often treated with chemicals.
Overall, wooden wicks offer a unique aesthetic and several benefits that make them a great choice for candles. They produce a beautiful flame, burn cleanly and evenly, create a distinct crackling sound, and are eco-friendly.
Why did you start litty love?
Having a degree in neuroscience and a relative understanding of how toxic some candles can be, I decided to make my own natural candles. After playing around with them, gifting them to friends and family, and having an absolute blast designing labels and fragrance combos, I decided to go full force and launch an instagram and website to start selling my creations. This was in March of 2022, I spent the majority of my weekends for the rest of 2022 attending pop-up markets in Southern Alberta and Calgary. I've learned so much during this past year, and I can't wait to continue to grow and provide you with amazing candles!
This year I am planning to add more home decor options, accessories, and merch! Stay tuned for exciting things to come!
