Updates

Our FAUN soy candle marries smooth, rich sandalwood with the crisp scent of rosemary and thyme for a scent that is fresh and cleansing. One of our Etsy bestsellers!
Men love our natural soy candles just as much as women do- but you won’t find any gimmicks here. (Sorry if you love bacon- and beer- scented candles. It’s just not our thing.) Instead, you’ll find good, clean, honest scents rooted in nature.
Just a few of the things that go into making our natural soy candles- including the most important- my journal of secrets! While I keep track of our perfected formulas digitally, I need to be able to scribble down ideas when I experiment!

Soy Candle Burning Tips

We use all-natural soy wax for its clean-burning properties and ecological benefits. However, soy candles behave differently than traditional petroleum-based paraffin candles. For best results, keep these tips in mind.

-Keep the wick trimmed to ¼”. You should examine your wick every time you light your candle.

-While it's important to keep your wick trimmed, trimming it too low will result in a weak flame. If this occurs, pour out a small amount of melted wax to allow the wick to breathe.

-Burn your candle for 2-3 hours each time you use it. Candles have a memory! For the initial use, allow the melt pool to reach the edges of the container. This will prevent “tunneling,” and allow your candle to last longer with a better scent throw.

Soy Candle Safety

-Never leave a burning candle unattended.

-Keep candles away from children, pets, curtains, and other flammable objects.

-If the flame in your candle is too high, blow it out and trim the wick.

Sales Tax

We are required to collect sales tax for all orders in the state of Texas.

Shipping

In order to be as eco-friendly as possible, we occasionally ship candles in recycled boxes. If this is an issue, please let us know ahead of time and we'll be happy to accommodate your request for an unused shipping box.

Many of our candles are shipped with packing peanuts. Rest-assured that we will only use eco-friendly, biodegradable peanuts. Never styrofoam.

All candles are shipped on either Monday or Tuesday through USPS Priority Mail with tracking. We do this to minimize candles melting when shipping in the summer heat.

Returns and Exchanges

Returns and exchanges will only be accepted if the candle is returned in it's original, unused condition. You must contact us within 14 days of delivery and ship the candle back within 30 days of delivery. The buyer is responsible for all return shipping fees.

Custom orders and items bought on sale may not be returned.

Of course, we always want you to have a 5-star experience. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please reach out to us!

Sustainability

The health of our environment is important to us. Please recycle any packaging and re-use the container the candle came in. They make great toiletry holders or small planters! To re-use glass and aluminum containers, simply melt out the wax with hot water or a hair dryer.
