When party planning and hobbies turn into a business

It all started when our oldest daughter was turning 2 years old. We're really a perfect match (Eric and I) in that we like to "hit it out of the park" with party favors, themes, treats, etc. Welllllll, when the 2nd birthday theme came up, we decided to do an "under the sea" theme complete with a handprinted wooden backdrop for candy "fishing" and ocean netting, sand and shells on each table. We agreed that the party favor had to be something that everyone would like (men and women alike). Who doesn't love a 4 oz jar candle with a beachy or tropical scent? Exactly what we thought!! So, there you have it. We made 50, 4oz candles for the guests at our daughter's birthday in February of 2014 and then, we made more at Christmas time because people really seemed to like the idea. And, then more wax and more fragrance turned into more candles. And, countless business ideas and a completely different business name before this has brought us HERE. We're N•E•S•W Wax Co// and we love our home state of California. We hope that when you grab your favorite candle, it reminds you of a special memory from that location and maybe, just maybe, you can continue to enjoy those memories each time your candle is burning. xo, H & E

N•E•S•W Wac Co. is all about beautifully fragrant hand-poured soy candles that are poured into an 8 oz lidded mason jar with a singe wick. These strong scents are designed to perform well with soy wax. Each candle is represented by a California city and the notes will also be listed for each fragrance.

*Our candles use pure soy wax and the wick has a cotton core (no zinc).
*A few of our candles contain phthalates but will be listed on the individual item in the description. (about 95% of our candles do NOT contain phthalates, so if you're concerned, just check the descriptions)
*Please use our candles only for the intended purpose- to have the best smelling house on the block.

Returns and exchanges
Our goal is to ensure that you're happy with your purchase and we stand behind our product. We understand that many of our customers are not local and choosing a scent is a "shot in the dark", so you may not like it the way you anticipated. If you're unhappy with a scent or it is nothing like you thought it'd be, we're happy to exchange the candle for you.

If you choose to return or exchange a candle or melt, please let us know within 3 days of delivery and ship the items back within 7 days of delivery.

You will be refunded the cost of the candle(s) or melts, not including any shipping costs.

We will split shipping with you- the customer is responsible for getting the candle back to us and we will pay for shipping the new candle(s) or melts back to you.

The candle(s) must be returned unused/not burned.
The melts must be returned unbroken and with all 6 squares intact.

Please ensure that you pack the candle as well as possible to protect the product in transit.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of customization or personalized orders, we cannot accept returns or exchanges for these. Please be aware that we are here for any correspondence prior to a custom order being shipped.
We accept all major credit cards and PayPal.
You can expect shipment within 48 hours of receiving payment.

If you purchased a candle scent that has sold out quickly, we'll be sure to communicate with you whether or not the turnaround time has changed. In some cases, we may need to pour a candle specifically to fill your order (it'll be worth the wait, promise!).

Domestic (US) orders-
I use calculated shipping, which will figure out the best box size and shipping type to use for the most cost-effective option. In some cases, standard post will be the best option. On the other hand, if you're purchasing more than 6 candles, Flat Rate Priority is probably going to be the best option. If something doesn't look right, or if you have any questions regarding shipping, please let us know!!

International orders-
N E S W Wax Co// is not responsible for any custom fees and taxes that are added to the shipment. This is the responsibility of the buyer.
International shipments will be calculated at the most cost-effective option. If you'd prefer a quicker option, please choose that or let us know if you need further assistance.

*The cost of shipping will be based on the weight of the package, which is a direct result of the number of candles being purchased.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you've been lonnnnnnnging for a specific scent, please reach out to us!! We'd be happy to get creative and find what you're looking for, or at least try (really hard!).

If you find one of our scents that you just LOVE and cannot live with just an 8 oz candle, let us know! We can make a larger size! Please get in touch with us and we can discuss cost.

If you have an event that you may need smaller votives, tea lights, etc, please send us a message to discuss. We've done wedding showers, baby showers and weddings- we're happy to accommodate any size order.

If you have any other questions at all, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Thanks! :)
