Prairie Lights - Eco-friendly 100% Soy Wax Candles - Organic Handcrafted Soap - Organic Body Products - and more ecologically-friendly products, made with care and love. Welcome!

We believe being "eco-friendly" includes both ecology and economy, and our products reflect those values. We value the work of "our" hands (all handcrafters), believing that staying in touch with our senses, using our strengths, living our values, keeps us flourishing and creates product that ends up being a piece of ourselves we gift to others - whose value cannot be measured in money.

We start with the basics. What do we use on our bodies, in our homes, and how can we improve on those products both ecologically and economically? How can we use these products to connect our senses with the glorious world around us and increase our positive emotions and well-being?

We allow ourselves to be inspired as we engage in the world around us. This may come through nature, people, research, events, family, - anything that has meaning and purpose to us.

Then we begin researching and formulating ideas on how to combine our values, needs, and the beauty that inspires us to create artisan, handcrafted products. This means we work in small batches, taking care to appreciate each individual ingredient, being intentional with our process.

Once we have a product, we test it out on our own family and extended family. After all, the central purpose of what we create is for our own loved ones. We are our own best customers! :-)
If we won't use it, we won't share it with you.

And lastly, we don't tend to leave things alone. We value improvement. Each season we work on some aspect of our products and seek ways to improve upon them. Our products evolve. So check back with us now and then! You will likely find something new going on!

Soybeans are a renewable, sustainable resource, and we use only:
• Non-GMO, made-in-USA, 100% soybean wax - no blends, fillers, or additives
• Lead-free, natural element wicks - not chemically treated
• Premium, PHTHALATE-FREE fragrance oils
• Master Herbalist proprietary blends of essential oils
• Non-GMO, made-in-USA palm wax (for our pillar candles)

Our candles provide you with
• Excellent hot AND cold scent throws
• Longer burn times than petroleum-based wax (paraffin)
• Less soot means better air quality
• Enjoyed by all ages and genders
• Luxurious, affordable, eco-friendly gifts
• Ready to repurpose containers (The gift that keeps on giving!)

Our premium candles are for the sophisticated and health-conscious candle lover. Scented with PHTHALATE-FREE premium fragrance oils and pure essential oils, we top our unadulterated soy wax off at its maximum fragrance load for optimal hot and cold scent throw. Our fragrances and essential oils are as pure and of premium-quality as we can find; we test them all ourselves to see that the essential oils duplicate the true, natural plants & herbs they are derived from, and that the fragrance oils match our expectations of true-to-name.

Our container candles provide you with the comfort of knowing there will not be any melt-outs that sometimes happen with pillars. They are poured into reusable, eco-friendly, recyclable glass. Soy wax will “pop” out of the container and the jar will wash up easily with hot soap & water, making it ready to repurpose!

For healthy candles, please keep your wicks trimmed to ¼” and burn at 2-hour minimum intervals.

"Light is sweet, and it pleases the eyes..."

Our soaps are full of skin conditioning oils that have been saponified.
All of our oils are ORGANIC (as of May 2016),
Our fragrances are PHTHALATE-FREE,
Our essential oils are premium grade,
Our additional ingredients are organic when available to us,
We research relentlessly,
NO SULFATES, PARABENS, OR PROPYLENE GLYCOL,
and our soaps are VEGAN-FRIENDLY (except Soothe, which has goat's milk in it)

About

About Us

Our creative process begins and ends with our 4-generation family. We are passionate about candles – every aspect – from the soft curls of the flakes to their slow transformation from a golden shimmer melt to a natural white solid.

Our goal has been and continues to be to reduce the toxic load to our bodies and to our environment. We value being ecologically-friendly as well as being economically-friendly.

In our effort to control the toxins some candles release, we began to research and create our own candles. Choosing 100% soy was easy. It is a renewable and sustainable resource grown by American farmers (our neighbors!). Soy has an excellent hot AND cold scent throw, and it burns longer than petroleum-based wax.

We continue to learn, grow, and change. Our desire to support family reaches out into our community, and into our country. Our most recent switch is to verified non-GMO, and made-in- the-USA, soy and palm waxes. By making this switch, we are not only providing a healthier, eco-friendlier product, but we are also supporting our local farmers and their families.

Our candles and soaps reflect what we are presently “in to”, whether it be our aromatic herb garden, kombucha tea, an early morning hike on the Kansas prairie, a favorite recipe, or an upcoming holiday. Inspired by nature and all that surrounds us, our fragrance choices reflect what our current muses are. They are as true to name as we can find and always free of harmful phthalates. We rotate our fragrance options seasonally: Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer.

Our wicks are lead-free and not chemically treated.

We strive to use containers that are made in the USA. Soy wax pops right out and washes clean with hot & soapy water, making the containers ready for repurposing!

We pour our heart into every candle and soap we make. If you want the highest quality products at the most reasonable prices, then our products are made for you!
From our family to yours.

Shipping
By purchasing an item from our ship, you agree to the terms included on our policies.

SHIPPING POLICIES:

We use USPS First Class and Priority Mail. If the shipping seems incorrect, or you would like to change your shipping method, or add insurance, and it will not allow you to edit in your cart, send us a message and we will create a custom listing. Etsy does not calculate for multiple items being able to ship in a flat rate priority box, so a custom order allows us consolidate an order into a flat rate shipping box to reduce your shipping costs. If actual shipping charges exceed actual shipping costs by more than $2, we will issue a refund of the difference.

We ship to the address listed at the time of checkout. If this is a gift and you would like it to ship to the recipient, be sure to enter the recipient's address as the shipping address.

We do not include invoices in the order. If you would like an invoice, save to your device at the time of the order.

International Shipments

We use USPS International shipping. Your shipping is automatically calculated by Etsy. If you would like to add insurance, or change your shipping method, and it will not allow you to do so in your cart, send us a message and we will create a custom listing. Note: Buyer is responsible for all taxes, tariffs, customs fees, and duties incurred at the time of delivery.

Shipping Time

We generally ship within 3 business days (M-F) of the order being placed. However, since our products are carefully handcrafted, an order may not ship for up to 2 weeks after the order is placed. If this is the case, we will message you. If you need an item quickly, please message us before placing the order, to confirm that your product will be available within those 2-3 business days.

USPS Priority domestic usually takes 3 business days. First class domestic can take 8-10 days.

Gifts

We ship to the address listed at the time of checkout. If this is a gift and you would like it to ship to the recipient, be sure to enter the recipient's address as the shipping address.

If you would like a gift tag with your name signed, please message us. We will be glad to do that for you.
Additional policies and FAQs
COMMUNICATION:

All communication should be through Etsy message.

CUSTOM ORDERS:

We carry many fragrances not listed. If you are looking for a fragrance not listed, or are interested in creating your own custom fragrance blend, please contact us.
We also create custom labeling for events such as showers, parties, weddings, and other venues. Please contact us if you are interested.

WHOLESALE:

We offer discounts to wholesalers who fulfill a minimum order requirement.

SUMMER:

Shipping candles in the summer may result in some melt. If this is the case, you can re-level your wax using a heat gun or by setting the candle on a level surface in the sun for a bit.
To help prevent melt from leaking from candle jar, we may cover the top with saran wrap during shipment, which should be removed prior to burning.
