About

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Hi, I'm Qunetin Robinson, Founder and Chief Aroma Enthusiast at Scented Brands Aromatherapy founded in 2013. 

Throughout 2015, I became inspired in the holistic healing properties of essential oils. Mid year, I starting my official training for a Certified Aromatherapist. In December of 2015 I decided to completely change the course of business and create products that had a purpose, products that put the Fun in Function. I then came up with the idea of using my all time favorite TV zitcom "Friends" (20 years old, I know, but still sooooo funny) funniest quotes and make them into functioning therapeutic candles.

At Scented Brands Aromatherapy we chose to work with the BEST ingredients when developing these candles. We use 100% soy/palm wax that is grown in the USA and dermatologically tested to be skin safe. The fragrances contain 100% pure therapeutic essential oils to create amazing synergistic blends.  These 11oz candles burn cleanly and safely for 75 hours at a lower melting point that will not burn the skin or stain if accidentally spilled. They smell completely amazing while offering therapeutic healing. 

For this project we are going to start with our 6 favorite quotes....see if you recognize them.

WHY SHOULD YOU BACK THIS PROJECT  

We are making this collection available EXCLUSIVELY to Kickstarter backers. These candles will not be available for retail until August 2016 and wholesale until  January 2017. So if you have "Friends" fanatics now is the time to get them a gift that will not be available anywhere else. 

HOW WILL THE MONEY BE USED?   We came up with the $8,000 goal based on the minimums required to get each pattern produced and make each candle, costs for designing the packaging, printing the packaging (at the minimums required but the manufacturer), and kickstarter fees. It breaks down like this:

Glassware with screenprinting - $3500

Wax, oils, & wicks - $1760

Packaging design & production- $2100

Kickstarter fees - $640 (if we only raise $8,000)

REWARDS

We wanted our backers to be the first ones to get their hands on this new product we designed, so we are making it available EXCLUSIVELY to our Kickstarter backers until June 2016. That means, if you want to give one of these beautiful candles as a gift before the summer you'll need to back the project!

Risks and challenges

There is little risk associated with this project, since we already have the tools in place to produce the candles. A manufacturer is lined up for the glass and a design firm for the packaging, so everything will go smoothly once the project is funded.

That being said, we will be transparent about where we are in the process and any hurdles along the way. Thank you.
