Frequently asked questions
How do I clean my pitcher/container candles after use?

I use a double boiler method. Fill a pan with a few inches of water [heat to a simmer] and place the pitcher within. The remaining wax should melt and the tab of the wick should loosen. Using an oven mitt lift the container and pour the excess wax into something you can throw away. [do not pour down your drain!] if the wick does not come loose use a spoon to see if it is removable, if not it needs more heat so repeat the process. Then thoroughly clean and you are done. As always be careful and don’t rush the process.

Expectations for soy wax candles

Soy wax is a 100% vegetable based wax with a melt point of 110 - 119 degrees fahrenheit. Skin friendly so it has the least chance of causing an allergic reaction due to its completely natural make up. The only con to this wax is it will develop frosting over time. This frosting looks like little white splotches or 'snow flakes' as I like to call them. This frosting doesnt effect the burning of the candle, the core color or the fragrance. All in all it's a great beginner wax for waxplay and great for home scented candles due to it being safer to burn thanks to the melt point and its vegetable makeup.

Wholesale availability

I do offer wholesale availability on specific items at a discounted price. You can find current wholesale options in the 'bulk items' section of my store. If you don't see what you need there just contact me and I can let you know if I can accommodate you.

Expectations for returns/exchanges/refunds

Returns, exchanges and refunds are done on a case by case basis. If you have any problems or concerns with an item please contact me within 3 days of delivery. If an item is sadly damaged please send an image of the item and the box it was shipped in so we can decide which path we need to take to remedy that. Depending on the item purchased I may request the original item to be returned to me as well.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I pack all my boxes tightly with a variety of material from bubble wrap to biodegradable packing peanuts. Always open the box from the top [where the label is placed] and do so with care. Do not tip or flip the box to remove items. When removing fragile items make sure to grip them securely. Do not rely on the packing material to support the items if you lift by it.

Shipping and delivery policy

Please double check your address at purchase. I am not responsible for a wrong mailing address being used. Make sure your item is being delivered to a safe and secure environment to ensure it doesn't get stolen. Once a package is in usps hands and marked as shipped/delivered I am not responsible for theft, late arrival times and/or error with the postal service.

Expectations for soap products

The soap base I gravitate towards is donkey milk [see individual listings for benefits and details] all in all it's a wonderful beneficial soap base. The scents used are 100% body safe and carefully measured out. Discoloration may occur in soap as it exposes to air over time due to the properties of certain fragrances.

Custom and personalized orders

I accept custom and personalized orders based off of all of my listings in shop. If you see something you like but want it personalized or made specifically for you please contact me so I can see if it's possible. If you want something totally different and think I'm the right person to make it also please don't hesitate to reach out. Custom/personalized orders must be paid in full before I begin making the item unless we agree otherwise.

Expectations for wax melts

My wax melts are 100% soy wax with a heavy fragrance load. The clam shells and tarts/shaped wax melts are prone to 'frosting' due to the wax being natural. This will not effect the melting or scent throw at all. Frosting looks like white splotches and will eventually always occur overtime in soy wax.

Skull Art

My skull/bone art cannot be returned or exchanged due to them being one of a kind pieces. If you have any questions or concerns before placing an order or after please contact me.

General candle care

Always burn your candles safely. Keep away from pets or flammable items and never leave unattended. To avoid tunneling make sure you burn your candle until the melted wax pool touches all sides of the candles container. Trim down your wick frequently to appropriate height based on wick type. Never relight/burn a candle when only 1/4 inch of wax remains at the bottom. Avoid burning a single candle longer than 4 hours at one given time.

What is 'frosting'?

Frosting occurs on 100% soy wax candles. It appears as white splotches or matte like spots on candles. It is unavoidable in soy wax due to the natural vegetable makeup. It doesn't effect the fragrance or burning of the candle at all, just the surface color. To lessen the visual effect of frosting you can order lighter colors. This will not keep it from happening it just wont be as noticeable. The darker the color of wax the more obvious frosting will be.

Wick expectations

On shaped candles the natural wick is left uncoated where it protrudes from the candle. This may cause the wick to 'fray' a simple grab and twist with your fingertips before lighting will correct this. In my container candles all wicks are coated with soy wax and fraying will not be an issue.
