TLD Candles

Announcement    Welcome to Two Lit Dumplings!!

It all started as a hobby, a way for us to create unique gifts that reflected our family and friend’s personalities and interests. After gaining much success with custom orders, coworkers started asking us for candles, then friends of friends, and TLD Candles was born.

Naturally we wanted to keep the spirit of our candles, but we also wanted to do more, for our customers, and for our environment. You see, a majority of decorative candles come in single-use containers, and are made of toxic paraffin wax, which is harmful to people and the environment. Our solution is to provide our customers with candles that appeal to their sense of style and scent, as well as their desire to protect our environment.

All TLD candles are made using carefully sourced materials:
100% Soy Wax
Low Smoke Candle Wicks
Non-toxic Adhesive Stickers
Reusable Containers

Soy wax is not only toxic-free, it leads to a longer burn time. By using holders that can be repurposed or recycled after you’ve enjoyed the candle, we minimize our carbon footprint, which makes Mother Earth happy.

And, of course, we are committed to making you happy. Every TLD candle is personalized with you in mind and lovingly hand-poured by us.

We hope you enjoy our products and look forward to creating something special, just for you!

    I literally wake up to the scent of this candle, in the best way possible. And it looks great as a decor piece in my bedroom.

    This diffuser not only looks pretty, but smells amazing! The scent is refreshing, but not too powerful. And the bottle is so pretty!

    I received these candles a couple of days ago. They arrived quickly and the tumblers are beautiful. The scent Les Baies is very nice, I am also a returning customer, I ordered the apothecary candle in Winter Pine and the reed diffuser in Cyprus Orchid in December. They also arrived very well packed, and the scents are beautiful . I continue to get complements on the beautiful smell of the diffuser and I am continuing to light the Winter Pine candle during these cold days! I will be ordering again!

    I purchased the red crown jewel candle as a gift for my mother in-law who actually collects depression glass & fancy things, so I knew this would be perfect for her. I had this shipped to my home prior to giving it to her as a gift. Upon delivery, it was so carefully packaged & presented. There is a thoughtful card inside that informs you of their eco-friendly & charitable purpose, which made me feel even better about my purchase (you don't get that from bedbath&beyond). ALSO, the packaging SMELLS SO GOOD! Haha which made the gift even better because my mother in-law loved the gift & scent before she even opened the box. I will be purchasing from & supporting this candle distributor moving forward. VERY PLEASED !!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

TUNNELING PREVENTION
Candle tunneling occurs during the first burn, when initial wax pool does not reach the edges of the container. Use the dome method to correct, wrap aluminum foil around the top of container & create a dome shape on top with an opening at the center above the flame. Allow candle wax to burn edge-to-edge.

CANDLE FROSTING
Frosting is a phenomenon that occurs with 100% sox wax, when white crystals form on the top and outermost layers of the candle. Not to worry, this is completely normal. Because the wax is all natural, it reacts to the climate and humidity of its surroundings. Frosting does not change your candle’s ability to burn or its scent.

Care instructions

REUSE & RECYCLE
Most of our containers have been repurposed & are fully functional or recyclable after the candle is finished. For ideas on reuse purposes, see candle listing!

CLEANING
There are many methods you can use to clean soy wax out of your containers, the one we find works best is the boiling method. Fill your container to the top with boiling water and allow to sit for an 60-90 minutes. This allows the adhesive on wick bottom to detach and excess wax to rise to the top. Allow water to cool off and wax to harden. Simply pour water out over a dish towel to catch wax and let water run down the drain. Using your dish cloth remove any remaining wax particles out of container, then clean container as usual.

Care instructions

WARNING
Please use caution when burning candles, some containers have been repurposed for candles and is not their primary intended use. Never leave burning candle unattended. Keep out of reach of children, pets, and flammable materials. Trim wick to ¼’ prior to lighting. Burning no longer than 4 hours at all times. Container will be hot when candle is lit. Allow to cool before re-lighting. Burn on heat-resistant surface.
