Frequently Asked Questions

1. What's in my candle?

We intentionally use only 100% natural soy wax - a safe and non-toxic product, adding in exclusively pure essential oils - no fragrances or harsh chemicals, and an FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood wick, that's it! We pride ourselves in providing the purest and cleanest candle for your enjoyment.

2. My candle appears wet on the top, or looks like it has melted.

This is called "sweating". Soy wax melts at a much lower temperature than paraffin wax, which is used in most regular candles. At 85 - 90 degrees, soy wax will begin to sweat and run onto the sides of the glass, however, the sweat will dry when the candle is returned to a cool temperature.

3. What comes in my order?

9. Can my glass container be recycled?

We encourage the upcycling of your glass container, as it carries the intention to be reused and recycled after each use. Once you have enjoyed burning your candle and about 1/4" of wax remains, discontinue use, carefully pour the remaining wax out and wipe clean.
