Announcement   The best hand poured and highly scented candles and wax melt gifts, handmade in small batches and super strong, using only the highest quality wax and fragrance oils.

★ Welcome to Two Blue Candle! I am new to Etsy but not new to making and selling highly scented candles. I've been making candles for almost 20 years, and opened my first online candle shop way back in 2002. I still really and truly pour each candle by hand (with love :) I've used the same scented wax recipe for over 15 years, and have used many of my fragrance blends for just as long. They are indeed tried and true!

★ The last day I am accepting orders for Christmas delivery is Monday, December 19th. Get those orders in soon, friends! ❤

About

I'm a candlemaker, and this is my story...

Welcome! I'm new to Etsy but not new to making and selling candles. I've been making them for nearly 20 years, and opened up my first online shop way back in 2002. I was living in a little rented house on the coast of Maine with my new hubby, happily perfecting my candle recipes in a tiny (and chilly) corner of the kitchen.

I don't live in Maine anymore, but I still really and truly make each candle by hand. Using only the highest quality waxes and fragrance oils, I mix all of my candles in extremely small batches, then I (some say neurotically) test a candle from each batch to ensure that they are held to the highest standards (mine :) In fact, the candles you receive today are made using the same scented wax recipes I've used for over 15 years, and I've used many of my fragrance blends for just as long. (I like to stick with a good thing!)

This is not just a business to me, and it's not just a hobby. Candlemaking is truly a part of who I am. It's a part of my personal history, and I really do feel like I am being true to myself when I am in my workshop mixing and pouring candles. It's my happy place and my "zen zone"... a peaceful place where I can just focus on my craft, and not worry about anything else. My hope is that when you burn one of my candles, you'll be able to sense the love and care and passion I put into each and every one.

I really do love hearing from all of my loyal Two Blue customers, and getting to know new friends too! Please let me know if you have any questions about my process or your order... I'm happy to help. Send me a note and I'll answer right away.

Frequently asked questions

What is the best way to burn a handmade pillar candle?

The first time you light a handmade pillar candle, burn it at least one hour for each inch of its diameter. This will allow the pool of wax to extend to the outside rim and help prevent it from "tunneling". The candle will melt out to this rim each time you light it.

To prevent smoking, trim your wicks to 1/4" or less before lighting. If you light your candle and it smokes, extinguish it and trim your wicks agin. Although smoking occurs with every kind of candle, highly scented candles smoke more than unscented ones.

Hug your candle after extinguishing it by cupping both hands around the top edges and gently pressing in towards the center, being careful not to crack it. Doing this will help the candle consume fully as it burns down.

What is the best way to burn a handmade votive candle?

The entire surface of your votive is intended to fully liquefy so be sure to burn it in a tight fitting votive holder! This will also ensure that your votive lasts longer. Avoid drafts to prevent your candle from smoking. Always trim the wick before lighting your candle.

Adding a few drops of water to your votive holder before adding your votive will prevent the glass from cracking if burned down too low. (It will also make the candle a cinch to remove when done.)
