    The scent of the candle is amazing, love it and have burned it basically every night since I got it. Item exceeds expectations.

    Unfortunately customer service and shipping time from this shop is not up to the standard I prefer to do business with! After waiting four days for the item to ship, I messaged the shop to check status, after two more days she responded to let me know the item had shipped. However the item sat there for two more days with no updates to the status at USPS before I messaged a second time. This time, no response from the seller, only a notification from the USPS that the item was received by the post office shortly after my second message. Since the items were in stock when I ordered, I don't feel as though it should take over a week for the items to ship. Probably will not buy from this shop again.

    I should probably stop reviewing these considering how many times I’ve bought them but a girl has to drive a point home. These are great, everyone should give them a try!

    Can’t say enough good things about these. I wish I could bottle this scent and spray it everywhere.

About

It all started with one candle

Just one candle. I'd never made one before, but after dwelling for weeks on how to make a handmade gift for Christmas -- and failing at many attempts -- it all came down to one last weekend and one last chance to get it right.

The rest is history, of course, because here I am making candles, soaps and lip balms, living a little bit of a dream that I didn't know I had.

Our mission is simple: Create products that are a pleasure to use and a pleasure to give. Each item is hand-crafted, with mindfully-sourced ingredients and packaged with utmost care and attention to detail. Each of our soaps, candles and accessories are thoroughly tested for quality. It means there are plenty of things that don’t make it to the shelves of our shop, but the things that are there have met our highest standard of scent and aesthetic. But above all else, we create products we love and use in our home daily. We hope to share that love with you.

Frequently asked questions
What kind of wicks do you use?

All of our wicks are made from cotton and are lead and zinc free.

Will my beeswax ornaments melt?

While we don't recommend keeping your natural beeswax ornaments in a place where they are in the direct path of heat, beeswax has a melt point between 144 and 147 degrees. Store them in a cool, dry place when not in use.

What kind of wax do you use?

As of November 2017 our standard wax is soy! We're so happy to have finally transitioned our candles to a cleaner, longer-burning wax. We also use natural beeswax in a limited number of candles.
