About OurRusticHeart

On Etsy since 2018

A great deal of passion, research, testing and love were put into creating my organic soy wax candles. I know that you will love them as much as I do!

I live in the beautiful historic mountain town of Truckee, California where I’ve raised two beautiful children that I adore.

Our Rustic Heart was created to share my love of excellent healthy alternative soy wax candles and all things rustic with those that appreciate the same.🌻

What are the Features and Qualities of Soy Wax?

- Vegan, Biodegradable, Sustainable and Eco-Friendly
- Non-Toxic/GMO Free
- Burns Cooler/Cleaner
- Burns 25-50% Longer than Paraffin Wax Candles
- Cleaner Burn with Very Little Smoke or Soot
- Domestically Grown and Supports American Farmers/Agriculture
- Soy Wax can be Cleaned Up Easily with Soap and Hot Water

We use 100% soy wax with no added chemicals or dyes to our wax.

As soy candles are all natural they are sometimes susceptible to "frosting" (a flaky texture to the wax after a burn) or "wet spots" (clear spots between the glass jar and wax). This does not affect the candle burn, duration of candle life or scent throw of the candle. We do not issue refunds for this as it is a normal trait of soy candles.

What do you Use to Scent Your Candles?

We have found that a blend of essential and natural fragrance oils are better suited for our soy candles. They are specifically made for use in candles which make them burn safely and more consistently as well as have a better scent throw.

Burn Time and Scent Throw

Our 16 oz. candles burn approximately 80+ hours and our 8 oz. candles 45+ hours (please see candle care information below to achieve the maximum burn time for your candle). You will get the longest burn life from your candle if you make a habit of trimming your wick before you light it.

We find that our 16 oz. candles fill a medium to large room nicely. For larger spaces or rooms with high ceilings, we recommend burning two candles to achieve a similar scent throw.

Candle Care

Before lighting your candle, remove the lid from jar (the lid can be put back on after the candle has cooled).

The first burn is the most important and sets the tone for the melt life of your candle. Please allow your lit candle to burn until the wax pool (the melted area around the wick) reaches the outer edge of the jar (approximately 3-4 hours).

Always make sure the wick is trimmed to 1/4 inch before every burn.

Candle Safety

Always keep your candle on a flat and flame retardant surface away from children, pets, draperies, flammable items, etc.

Never leave a burning candle unattended, keep away from drafts (which can create an uneven burn, abnormally strong flame or low scent throw).

Do not move the candle while it is burning or if the wax is hot liquid.

After the candle has burned to 1/2 Inch from bottom of candle your jar may be washed out with hot water and soap.
