Our Candles

What's the best way to burn your candles?

Always allow the wax burn pool to reach the outer edges of the jars before extinguishing the flame. This will prevent the wax from "tunnelling" and allow your candle to burn evenly. We recommend burning your candle for 2-3 hours at a time but for never more than 4 hours. Never leave the candle unattended. After use, your amber glass jar can be recycled - in any way you like!

Can my amber glass jar be re-used?

Of course! When your Handmade candle has reached the end of its life, you can soak and wash out the remaining wax with hot soapy water. If any stubborn wax remains, place your candle in the freezer. Once the wax hardens, it can be chipped out along with the wick. Carefully empty the wax out and wipe clean. Re-using our amber jars could not be easier! They make great small planters for succulents or cacti and also make great mini storage solutions for pens, pencils and bathroom accessories - anything you like!

How fragrant are Handmade Candles?

Because we use natural soy wax, our candles will not have the same scent throw as paraffin candles. We like that our candles are not overwhelming and can be used daily. Our candles fill a medium-size room nicely. 

Why use soy wax?

There are so many reasons! To name a few, we love that it's a renewable material and carbon neutral. We love that it burns cleanly, evenly and for a longer period of time than paraffin waxes. We love the way soy wax smells when blended with fragrance oils. But most of all, we love working with soy wax because it's a non-toxic and natural material that we can touch and feel with human hands every day without damaging skin.
Why use synthetic fragrances?

We use a premium blend of man-made and natural fragrances for all our products, as they 1) allow us to create more complex scent profiles; 2) are oftentimes, more sustainable to produce; and, 3) allow us to offer our products at accessible price points.
