Slim Down … with Scents?

We all know that Gold Canyon’s fragrances are so true-to-life that they can take us back to a place, a feeling or a special memory. Did you also know that fragrances are now being proven to suppress appetites, lose weight and curb temptation? Read on for more intriguing details and be sure to recommend these fragrances to your customers so they can enjoy the far-reaching benefits of fragrance for themselves!

Researchers at Osaka University in Japan found that exposing rats to the scent of grapefruit oil for 15-minute intervals three times a week helped reduce not only their appetite, but their weight. Inhale this fresh citrus scent and dial back the portion of your next meal. To try it for yourself, enjoy using a Yuzu & Ruby Red candle or Scent Pod®

Apple or Peppermint
Battle temptation with a whiff of your favorite fruit or peppermint. In a study at the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, overweight people smelled green apple or peppermint when they felt a craving—and lost more weight than the non-sniffers. Try fragrances like Apple or Angel Wings.

Dear Maven - My favourite scents didn't come back!

Dear Maven,

I love the new spring catalog and all the new scents, but many of the fragrances from last year are long gone. My customers are missing some of our favorites – and I even find myself longing for some of my own faves from last year. Will you ever bring them back? How can I keep my customers happy when their fragrances are no longer available to buy?

Yours Truly,

Forlorn for Fragrance

Oh, my. It sounds like you’ve got some die-hard fragrance junkies on your hands – including yourself! Well, I’ve got good news. First of all, you are not alone because I can relate!

Candle History - The 20th Century

Candles enjoyed renewed popularity during the first half of the 20th century, when the growth of U.S. oil and meatpacking industries brought an increase in the byproducts that had become the basic ingredients of candles – paraffin and stearic acid.

The popularity of candles remained steady until the mid-1980s, when interest in candles as decorative items, mood-setters and gifts began to increase notably. Candles were suddenly available in a broad array of sizes, shapes and colors, and consumer interest in scented candles began to escalate.

The 1990s witnessed an unprecedented surge in the popularity of candles, and for the first time in more than a century, new types of candle waxes were being developed. In the U.S., agricultural chemists began to develop soybean wax, a softer and slower burning wax than paraffin. On the other side of the globe, efforts were underway to develop palm wax for use in candles.
