Pretty cool huh? This is a relatively simple concept – A range of soy, scented candles that represents the periodic table of elements. Each element will be a unique colour and will have a unique scent.
Recently I became a home owner – and my wife has gone absolutely crazy decorating the new house. Luckily – I like her style and am loving the decor, especially the house plants. Have you ever seen a elephant ear? Like Woah! – Anyway, I started to notice scented candles popping up all over the house.
So I started thinking to myself – How can you make these candles into a learning opportunity, make them more interesting and make them mean something. Introducing the periodic table of candles.
A beautiful set of minimalist handmade, scented candles that represents elements of the periodic table.
What colours & scents will they be?
The colours is the easy part. We are going with the J-mol molecule visualizer colour scheme. Remember back to highschool, when learning about elements and we made those models? Oxygen was always red, carbon always black, hydrogen is always white etc….
The J-mol colour scheme offers more unique colours than any other scale. So the colours of the candles will match their standard scientific colour.
In terms of scent – Well we are still working on which exact fragrance will represent each element – But we are working on it.
Most candles contain chemical components that are harmful not only to yourself, but also to the environment. Cobble ensures you can enjoy burning your candle safely and cleanly.
Wax – All-natural soy wax that is 100% paraffin free!
Wicks – Cotton wicks that are 100% lead-free!
Fragrance – Rich and delicately balanced essential oils that are 100% chemical free!
Why do you need funding?
The biggest hurdle, issue, opportunity to overcome a problem is the 118 variations. This is not a product we can make on demand, so will need to have stock ready to ship. There is 110 different colours, and 118 different scents, and of course 118 labels.
We are going to keep the box standard across the range. This will require a pretty large initial outlay to buy the equipment needed to produce our range. We are going to be making all of these ourselves in Queensland, Australia.
We need assistance raising the funds for the equipment, supplies and of course packaging. By helping us reach this milestone – You get a great discount, become part of the family with lifetime discounts for future purchases; and if we reach our stretch targets – some awesome bonus’s – so get sharing – and help us reach that all mighty Funding Goal!
Gift Packs Ideas
Just think of the possibilities – You could make molecule combinations like H2O – water, O2 – oxygen, C6H1206 – glucose. You could try and spell peoples names – but you might have to get creative there – We’re 100% doing the breaking bad set of 2 – Br Ba, FrOLiC – Ohhh, ohh you can make SAsSY….. No Freaking way: GeNiUS.
Wait a moment – gentlemen…. we can spell WIFe!
Where we are and what we need
We’re ALMOST ready to light these bad boys! We have all our materials determined, suppliers ready to fulfill orders, and have been testing our candle pouring techniques. We’re in the final stages of testing our fragrances to make sure they play nice with every candle. Now we just need $60,000 to get our first production run going!
1. After funding is completed we will send out the Backer Questionnaire to gather order details.
2. During this time – we will finalise the fragrance testing and confirm which scent will represent which element. Which will also allow time for the funds to be received.
3. Orders will be placed for required equipment and supplies.
4. Production will begin once supplies are received and is expected to take roughly 3-4 weeks.
5. A bulk shipment will be sent to the USA for quicker and cheaper shipping to backers in the USA and Canada.
6. Shipping will take place from the USA warehouse and Australian warehouse.
