Shipping was fast and the candle burns slowly and smells wonderful! The jar is cute and can be kept after burning for anything crafty!! Would definitely buy from Fragrant Offerings again!

A beautiful looking candle, but the scent doesn't really smell like gardenia, it smells a lot less floral and is heavier.

When I say "small batches" I really mean it.
I'm so in love with the hypnotic sound and ambience of these romantic Crackling Wood Wick Soy Candles in Rustic Mason Jars

About

I love creating with color and fragrance. That makes candle and soap making the perfect form of art for me.

I have loved having my hands in some kind of craft ever since I can remember. We were always doing some kind of craft growing up, but my favorite was making candle holders by dripping melted crayons over the side of wine bottles. I guess that's where it started.

I have always been crazy about candles, too. I always loved when the electricity would go out and we could light every candle in the house! As an adult, I would buy candles for my home and whenever there would be leftover wax in the bottom if the jar, I would always dig it out and try to re-melt it. (I am happy to say that my soy container candles always burn evenly and completely -- no leftover, unburned or lop-sided wax left in the jar!)

In 2001, I bought a beginner candle kit from a local Craft Store & I have been hooked on making candles ever since. I still feel the same excitement and anticipation every time I slide a new pillar out of the mold the next morning after I've poured it.

I decided to try my hand officially at the business of candle-making in 2003. I have gradually grown into doing craft shows, fundraisers, store booths, consignment, and now - ETSY!! I am loving ETSY, because I finally feel like the true art and creativity of my craft is being seen and appreciated more than ever!

I still feel the same excitement and anticipation every time I slide a new pillar out of the mold the next morning after I've poured it.

Additional policies and FAQs
BENEFITS of SOY Candles: Made from Soy Beans, soy wax is a clean-burning natural wax which may be used without additives necessary for changing the color, hardness, or clarity. Unlike paraffin wax, soy wax has natural oils that mix well with fragrant oils. Therefore, soy wax is able to hold more scent per pound than paraffin wax and shrinks very little during the candle making process. Soy candles & melts can have a bumpy or cratered surface. This is perfectly fine and there is nothing wrong with your melts if the surface is not as smooth as petroleum based wax melts.

Other benefits of Soy Candles & Melts
*Soy Wax is nontoxic.
*Soy Wax is a completely natural and renewable resource.
*Soy Wax helps support the American farmer.
*Soy Wax spills clean up much easier than other wax spills; simply use soap and hot water to get the wax out of carpets or upholstery.

WICKS: I use lead-free, zinc-core wicks because they stand up straighter while pouring hot wax, and paper-and cotton-core wicks tend to curl down while burning, causing your flame to drown out. Soy candles should always be burned long enough for the wax to melt evenly and all the way across the jar. With double wicks, you can achieve this within about 30 minutes.

=== Fragrance Descriptions ===

APPLE CINNAMON -- The delicious scent of warm apples and an undertone of cinnamon make Apple Cinnamon a winning fragrance for use during the holidays and year-round. A luscious combination to please the senses and awaken the air with a warm and cozy feeling.

BIRD OF PARADISE -- Just like the famous Circle E candle fragrance! Sweet creamy vanilla is decorated with fresh juicy strawberries and hot from the tropics freshly grated coconut. It’s a true delight for those tropic lovers!

BIRTHDAY CAKE -- This is hands-down the best Birthday Cake we have EVER smelled! Three years in the making, it's "THE" perfect blend of moist white cake and hurt-your-teeth sweet butter cream vanilla frosting. Yes, we admit it, the sample made us go buy a birthday cake and ice cream for a little celebration. If you close your eyes, you can almost smell the little candy sprinkles.

CEDARWOOD PATCHOULI -- This aromatically rich and ethereal fragrance oil has notes of earthen, woody moss, spicy red cedar, musky bark, and deep, dark patchouli. Sexy and sensual, rich and warm, potent and aromatic.

COFFEE HOUSE -- Awaken your senses with the invigorating aroma of a steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee from full-bodied Colombian Arabica beans. Known to be some of the finest and richest beans in the world, our fragrance oil mimics Colombian beans with its bold, enticing aroma. This scent doesn't have the bitterness associated with most coffee fragrance oils which makes it a premium choice over others.

COUNTRY CLOTHESLINE -- My nose is very picky and this is the best I've ever smelled for Country Clothesline. I wish all my clothes smelled this good. This fragrance just screams FRESH!!!!

da LIME in da COCONUT -- Cool & refreshing, not too sweet and not too tart...just right! This smooth fusion of lime & coconut will make you want to dance.

FROZEN -- If something could smell like a movie, it's our new Frozen Fragrance. Delicate snow crocuses dancing in the ozone with a backdrop of spicy juniper berry and the richness of the forest woods. Full-bodied and very versatile. A sure-fire hit! This would work well for all ages - young and young-at-heart.

LEATHER -- Sexy. Sensual. Even the most manly man will enjoy this candle scent. It’s deep and strong leather fragrance is a wonderful scent for any man cave, library, or office, but it’s definitely Not just for Men!!

LEMON VERBENA -- This is absolutely the BEST lemon candle scent and soap fragrance oil we have found! Our Lemon Verbena is tangy yet smooth, with no fuel or furniture polish notes. Very clean & fresh for candles, soaps, scrubs and lotions for an invigorating, refreshing aroma.

LITTLE BLACK DRESS -- Oh yes, this is it! One of the sexiest and most popular fragrances right now!! It just screams strappy sandals and slinky dress! Base notes of white carnation and blood orange are the perfect foil for heart notes of sandalwood, black rose, smoky wood, and a kiss of patchouli. The top notes give a hint of toasted vanilla bean and whiffs of vetiver, amber, and the tiniest touch of Egyptian musk for a smoky, sexy finish. (Even if you hate musk, try this anyway - you won't know it is there!)

LOVE SPELL – Just like the Victoria’s Secret fragrance!! This is a fresh, sensuous fragrance oil with top notes of grapefruit, clementines and strawberries. Middle notes are peach, black currant, and rose petals. Rounding out the scent is a sweet, white musky base note.

ORANGE DREAMSICLE -- Sweet and dreamy, Orange Dreamsicle is a reminder of those childhood orange push-ups we all loved. You will have sweet dreams when you experience this perfect blend of orange citrus swirled with creamy vanilla.

PINK SUGAR -- The much-sought-after duplication of Pink Sugar, Aquolina's runaway hit perfume! This is a very complex fragrance, at once childlike, playful, and mischievous.... with a touch of irresistible romance. There simply is not any way to classify or accurately describe this bodacious fragrance other than to say, "WOW"!

PUMPKIN CRÈME BRULEE -- This scent is so yummy, we can't seem to get enough sniffs & whiffs of it! You'll find notes of creamy pumpkin puree, ground cinnamon, cardamom, Vermont maple, rum, french vanilla and caramelized sugar. Oh so delicious!

VANILLA SANDALWOOD -- There's something about the smell of Vanilla that brings to mind the innocent pleasures of childhood. But there's nothing innocent about this fragrance! It's a sensuous assault on your senses! While the strong notes of Vanilla are as rich creamy as they should be, their purity is complimented by the sexy scent of West Indian Sandalwood. The end result is a fabulous, and rather intoxicating blend, provocative enough to make your toes start to curl!
