what type of wax do you use?

We only use an all-natural soy wax made from hydrogenated soybean oil that is grown in the U.S.A.


What is the difference between soy wax and paraffin wax?

Paraffin wax also known as straight wax (which is the type of wax used in most mass produced candle companies) is the most inexpensive type of wax. Paraffin wax contains chemicals that are both harmful to you and to the environment.  

Soy wax is a natural product, it is non-toxic, made of 100% soybean oil and it burns cleanly. It is also:

·        Much more biodegradable than paraffin wax

·        Easier to clean up with soap and water

·        A renewable source is used to make soy wax

·        Longer burning than paraffin wax


What type of wicks do you use?

We use cotton wicks that are free of lead and zinc.


What type of fragrance do you use?

We use phthalate free fragrance oils that are infused with natural essential oils.


What type of containers do you use?

Our jars are high quality rock glass for both the mini and large candles.


How long will my candles burn?

The large candles have a burn time of about 70 hours.

The mini candles have a burn time of about 30 hours.


Can I re-use my candle container?

YES! We highly encourage that you re-use them. One of the great things about soy wax is that it is really easy to clean. Just wash your container with warm water and dish soap to get any remaining residue off the jars.


What can I use the EMPTY jars for?

For so many things! They can be used as drinkware – the large jars make great cocktail glasses and the mini jars can be used to taking a shot (or two!). They can also be used in your vanity to hold Q-tips, lip glosses, bobby pins, makeup brushes and more!


How long should the candle burn for?

We recommend allowing the candle to burn long enough for the wax to completely melt evenly and meets the edges of the container before you blow out the candle. This will prevent tunneling.


What is tunneling?

Tunneling is when a candle it shut off before a layer of wax melts evenly to the edges. Over time, this will create a tunnel going down the middle of your candle.
