About ChineshasCloset

Sales 2,565
On Etsy since 2017

From a place of feeling stagnant to finally finding my creative spark and even saving my life.

I live in Memphis, TN and started Chinesha’s Closet 2 years ago. With my strong addiction for candles and essential oils, it was only natural this would be my calling. I purchased all sorts of candles throughout the years from all sorts of stores and manufacturers. The interesting thing was, I had no idea what I was purchasing. I now understand the difference between good wax and mediocre wax allowing me to make a more environmentally friendly candle. Not realizing most of the candles I purchased weren’t really made with the best elements or materials such as soy wax or eco friendly cotton wicks. Knowing what I know about what makes a good candle, I created my own environmentally friendly and safe to burn candle with an extreme throw to follow.

Over the past few years, my passion and success with making soy candles gave me the courage to explore and expand my creative talents in other areas. I have always been interested in the Bath & Body arena, and wanted to make quality as well as affordable products for all skin types. I now make handcrafted artisan soaps, scrubs both for body and now face, body butters and shave butters. I explore new ideas daily while still learning, and perfecting my craft. Getting the chance to challenge myself creatively is what was missing in my life for awhile. This whole experience has been environmentally educational, therapeutic, creatively challenging as well as emotional, and life saving. Having been diagnosed with stage 2 Colorectal Cancer back in October 2018 and being told in February 2019 I was cancer free, I really believe having my shop, staying creative and filling orders was a tremendous blessing for getting me through that trying time. I was always told while going through treatment, I needed to fight and maintain a positive headspace to win.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Soy Candle Instructions

-As with all candles, the first burn is the most important.
-Allow your candle to burn for at least 1 hour or until wax melts all the way to the sides of the container- this will ensure tunneling doesn't occur.
-To prevent your soy candle from producing black soot, always trim your wick to 1/4" before lighting your candle.
-Do not burn candle for more then 4 hours at a time.
-When only 1/2" of wax remains, it's time to let your candle go.
-Feel free to wash your container with soap and water for reuse.

What’s the difference in Eco Cotton Wick and Wood Wick

ECO Cotton Wicks are designed specifically for natural waxes like soy wax. It is a flat, core less, cotton wick with unique thin paper filaments interwoven for burn stability. Lead free and Zinc free.

Eco Cotton Wicks Offer:
-Cotton flat core less wick
-Enhanced curling for self-trimming
-Minimized mushrooming, soot and smoke

Wooden Wicks
-achieve a fast melt pool formation for quick and excellent hot throw
-produce a tantalizing crackling sound when burning
-have no mushrooming with little carbon buildup, debris or sooting
-are rigid and require no straightening
-can be used in all candle wax types

Why does my soy candle have a white coating developing around the top of the candle and the insides of the glass?

During the fall and winter months - it is possible for some candles to develop a light flakey appearance. This is called "frosting" and is very common with candles made from soy wax. Some candles may also develop clear "wet spots" due to the colder temperatures during shipping, frosting may occur. This will not effect the candle burn or scent throw of your candle. We do not issue refunds for this as this is a normal trait of soy candles.

Why does your processing times change from days to weeks?

I’m a flight attendant and generally travel about two weeks out of each month. Instead of placing my shop in vacation mode, I change my processing time to up to 2 weeks. I prefer to leave it open allowing new and returning customers to shop and keep an open line of communication ensuring their order will be shipped promptly upon my return. If my timeframe happens to not work while I’m away, I apologize in advance and will be more than happy to fill that order once processing times are back to 3-5 days.

How are your candles made?

All of my candles are made out of only the finest ingredients. I use 100% pure soy wax, gmo-free and all grown in the USA, 100% pure eco grade cotton wicks and phthalate free fragrance oils. I do not add any chemicals to my candle wax to make them "throw" a stronger scent.

Not happy with your product or choice of scent? Please message me before writing a negative review, I will try my best to make things right.

Custom and personalized orders

I do offer custom and personalized services. Please contact me to discuss details on pricing, time it may take me to process the order and shipping cost if any. Depending on size of the order, two weeks is the max for processing the order.

Why won’t my natural soap lather like store bought bars of soap.

Natural soaps contain natural ingredients leaving out the additives in most popular store bought brands. To maximize the experience and receive a maximized lathering, use a foam loofah or any loofah of choice instead of a washcloth.

Custom and personalized orders

When placing a custom order please message me with your details. I will reach out to you within 24hrs to confirm your order needs. Once confirmed and the order is started, I cannot offer refunds.
