Why Work With Scented Designs Candle Co.?

So, what makes our handmade candles a special branded gift from your school?  

They are...

Long-lasting & clean-burning

So they can be enjoyed longer. Whether to freshen up a parent's home or to help a faculty member relax after a long day of teaching and research. 

Generously scented with phthalate-free oils

So your community can enjoy a strong smelling candle without having to worry about yucky stuff in the air. Our candles are meant to promote relaxation and get rid of headaches...not give headaches from too many chemicals and additives​

Vegan & eco-friendly

So you can feel good about how these candles treat the earth. Plus, each purchase gives back to environmental initiatives through our partnership with 1% for the Planet.

Hand-poured in California by a female-owned business

There is a real person behind your custom candles being lit and a business that you are supporting. 

Made with care to help you show how much you care about all the members of your school community, from current students or recent grads to alumni celebrating their 30 year reunion.
