Hi every one! :mrgreen:

How do you package and ship candles so it doesn't break?

What types of materials do I need? Do you use mailing boxes/tough bags/mailing envelope..etc? packing peanuts? bubble wrap? What's the most economical and efficient way that you ship glass jar candles?

I look forward to the replies. Thank you in advance :)

Hi there

Depending on what the order is it can vary from reusing bubble wrap, packing peanuts to our latest addition, hay. When we sell a number of glass candles we use hay as its a really good cushion and is biodegradable which is important to us.

To be honest we have looked at a number of options and most things weren't as "green" as we would like hence reusing our packing supplies.

Mom orders candles from Fragrant Jewels and they come in a box. inside the box, the candle is wrapped in something like perforated cardboard.
