Mystical Scented Soy Candles by Vespertine Studio

I have always been an avid lover of fragrance. I collected perfumes, wax melts, and candles, and would often have them burning throughout my house. Unfortunately, over time I developed severe headaches, and I was eventually able to narrow down the cause.

Unless otherwise stated, a vast majority of store-bought candles are made from paraffin wax, a petroleum by-product. That combined with the harsh chemicals in their fragrance oils turned out to be the cause of my headaches and allergies, a problem more and more people are starting to realize. As a result, all Vespertine Studio candles are made with 100% soy wax, an eco-friendly all-natural alternative to typical paraffin candles. In addition to being non-toxic, soy wax also burns slower and last much longer. I make all of my candles with no dyes and only non-toxic phthalate-free fragrances, most of which are infused with essential oils. These candles are also cruelty free, as I and my suppliers never test on animals.

I draw my inspiration from things I'm passionate about. Nature, folklore, divination, and a variety of mystical and esoteric themes give my candles a unique vibe and aesthetic.

Frequently asked questions
When will my order ship?

Current processing times for this shop is 3-5 business days. Most domestic orders will ship via 2-3 day Priority mail, and small packages ship via First Class Mail, which will have a similar delivery time. All packages are insured and will come with tracking information so you will be kept up to date during the shipping process.

Please keep in mind that even if you choose a faster shipping service there will still be a 3-5 day processing time. If you need an item rushed please message me before you place your order and I will do my best to accommodate you!

Please double check your address before placing an order. If an order is returned the buyer is responsible for the additional postage fees needed to resend

International Orders

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee a delivery date because it varies widely depending on your country, and it also depends on which shipping service you choose at checkout. The buyer is responsible for any additional customs fees that may occur, so please be aware of your country's policies.

Returns and Exchanges

If you receive an incorrect or defective item, please contact me with your concerns and you will receive a refund or exchange. If your item appears to have been damaged during the shipping process I will send a replacement right away, but you must message me with a photo of the broken item and hold onto it so that an insurance claim can be filed with USPS.

Returns or exchanges are accepted for undamaged and unused candles, but the buyer is responsible for shipping both ways. This can be expensive, so please read the item descriptions carefully before ordering. If you are unsure about a scent, consider ordering one of our smaller travel tins first! You must contact me within 14 days of delivery.

Lost or Stolen Packages

All packages sent via USPS come with tracking information. Once the package is in transit I know as much as you do, so if your package appears to be lost or extremely delayed please contact your local post office for information first. Vespertine Studio is not responsible for errors made by the post office or packages marked as “delivered”.

CANDLE SAFETY AND BURNING TIPS

*Never leave a burning candle unattended

*Keep away from children and pets

*Before lighting (EACH time), trim wicks to about ¼ of an inch to prevent sooting and uneven burning.

*If the flame becomes too big or starts flickering or smoking, extinguish the candle and check the length of the wick. Be sure to let the wick cool completely before trimming it.

*Keep wick trimmings and foreign materials out of the candle container. These may catch and spark.

* The first time you light your candle, let the melted pool of wax reach the edge of the container before extinguishing it.

*Containers may become warm. Burn candles on a heat resistant surface and away from flammable materials (Paper, tablecloths, curtains, etc.)

CANDLE SAFETY Cont.

* Do not burn in a drafty area, and keep away from vents, fans, and open windows.

*Do not burn a candle all the way to the bottom. To be safe, stop burning when ½ an inch of wax remains.

*Do not burn candles for longer than 3 hours

*Take care when extinguishing candles, and never use water

Wax

All candles are hand poured to order using 100% all natural soy wax. Most candles on the market today are made with paraffin, a petroleum by-product. Soy wax burns clean, is non-toxic, and biodegradable (made from soybeans!). Soy also burns much slower than paraffin, so your candles last much longer than the typical store-bought candles. Soy wax has what is called a “memory”. The first time you light it, if you extinguish it too soon then every time you burn it the melt pool will follow that first impression made in the wax, resulting in candle tunneling, poor scent throw, and a much shorter candle life. To prevent this, let the melted wax pool reach the edge of the container before extinguishing it.

Wicks

All candles are made with only natural cotton wicks. These wicks are lead and zinc free. Be sure to trim your wick to ¼ of an inch between burnings to prevent sooting and uneven burning. If the candle flame gets too large and starts flickering, extinguish it, let it cool, and then give it a trim. Scissors are acceptable for this purpose, but it’s way easier when done with a wick trimmer. Be sure not to cut the wicks too short, however, as this might result in “tunneling” or a drowned wick.

Fragrance

Vespertine Studio is committed to using only high quality and phthalate-free fragrance oils and essential oils. Keep in mind that larger candles give off a stronger scent throw than smaller ones. If you have any questions on the strength of certain scents please send me a message!
