Getting Motivated

Creative ruts.


The worst.

The good news is, you're not alone. We all feel those creative ruts at some time or another. And whether its due to your environment or things just not going the way you planned, it's usually something you have no control over. The best way to get over it is having a community of like minded creatives that will boost you back in the right direction. 

I've been in this creative funk ever since my distributor decided to discontinue their supplies. I've been SO fortunate to have some friendly faces from the candle community (you know who you are!) come to my side and let me know I'm not alone, and that despite these pit falls, I am still awesome at what I do.

So I'm here to tell you that you are awesome at what you do. Yeah, YOU!

Here's a little freebie for your Instagram - to inspire your creative buddies to hop out of that rut and enjoy a little sunshine, because not everything blooms all year. ;)

Introducing Blush

If you've been following Northern Flicker for a while, you know we LOVE Brika and we love working on exclusive projects with them. That's why we jumped on the opportunity to be a part of their Mother's Day Gift Box.

This box includes an exclusive selection of beautiful, well-crafted goods created in partnership with BRIKA and three makers just for your Mama. As a mom, I am swooning over this box. Here's what's inside:

VO Bath Lotion
This luxurious lotion, created exclusively for BRIKA, is 100% natural, and will reveal your skin's natural radiance. 4 oz. 

Ayu Larasati Mug
Made exclusively for BRIKA, this stained pink mug was created on a pottery wheel, fired and then glazed. 3.5" height x 5" width including handle. 

Northern Flicker Candle
Crafted exclusively for BRIKA, delight your senses and enhance your environment with notes of grapefruit, bergamot and soft floral. 9 oz, soy wax. 

Rose Quartz Crystal
The rose quartz crystal is a stone of the heart. It carries the feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort and ultimately unconditional love.

Shiny & New!

Remember when we said we would be working with a new wax in 2017?

Well, that time has come!

In mid April we will be receiving our first boxes of our new wax from our distributor. We are so excited to text this wax and create better candles for our customers. We want to be completely transparent with our customers, so we want you to know exactly where our soy wax comes from and why we choose this company. 

We are proud to say that we've been using NGI Elements EcoSoya Advanced Container Blend wax since the beginning. We chose this company for their mission to be safe for the environment and because their product is 100% vegetable wax, no additives. It is important for us to use supply that is not only healthy for our customers, but also sustainable for the Earth. To learn more about NGI Elements, EcoSoya wax and their certifications for being GMO and Pesticide/Herbicide free,  please visit this website.

We will implementing EcoSoya 110 wax once our current stock of CB Advanced is done. This new technology will allow us to improve our scent throw, increase stability and improve the appearance of the colour and texture of our candles. 

We have also been brainstorming ways to keep our sourcing faster, easier and cheaper for the company, so that we can in turn send you your orders quicker. Most importantly, we want to do this while still maintaining a formula that is paraben and phthalate free and body safe. With that being said, we have decided to try and keep all of our ordering limited to Canada only. Unfortunately, most our fragrance oils come from a US distributor. We hold our scents dear to our hearts and would hate to say goodbye to some of them, but, with this change we can start anew with an amazing line of new scents! We will be testing new oils immediately and we want your feedback! Let us know which scents you would like us to try and reformulate or any new scents you'd be interested in by commenting below.

And remember, the best way to see what we're up to daily is through our Instagram, so make sure to follow us!

New Design, Same Candles + Promo Code

Wow, it's been awhile since we've updated everyone on what's going on here at Northern Flicker headquarters. It's been a long winter, to say the least. Now that Spring is just a few short weeks away, we've decided to freshen up our website with a re-brand. Now, this isn't a full re-brand for our business, we still are totally in love with the minimal look and design of our candles. We just wanted to make sure our website was 100% put together, easy to navigate, and easily helped our customers every step of the way. We will be changing the font of our other products to match that of our new logo, but for the most part, our products will remain the same. 

Feel free to check out the new features on our website, and if you're reading this, we love you.
