⭐⭐Military Discount!⭐⭐

As a former Military Spouse I know and understand the sacrifices we must make to keep our country safe. I want to thank those who serve (and their spouses) with a discount. If you or your spouse has served in any of the U.S. Military Branches at any point, Use the coupon code SERVEWITHPRIDE for a 10% off discount during checkout. I appreciate everyone's honesty in using this system, as there is no way for me to verify purchaser is affiliated with the services. Offer does not combine with any other offers.

******************************* Important Shop Info *************************************
I first created this Etsy Shop in 2013, but didn't really become active with it until Nov. 2015. I consider this to be our "open since" date. :)

Our Candles are hand poured and made with Premium Fragrance Oils, Vegan 100% All Natural Soy Wax, and are Cruelty-Free!

I am mostly available to answer messages Monday-Friday from 9am-7pm EST.
Saturdays-Sundays are dependent on what I have going on.

To achieve the best results when burning you new ATHDecor Soy candles,
please follow our best practices guidelines which can be found here: http://aroundthehomedecor.com/Burning-Your-New-Soy-Candle.php

CUSTOM COLORS:
If you are requesting that your items be made in a specific color, it is STRONGLY recommended that you message me a color swatch or an example of the color you need and understand that getting to that color is more of an art than a science. I will do everything I can to match the color as best as possible.

Returns & Exchanges
Due to the nature of our items, and the fact that each item we make is made to order for the buyer, we do not accept returns or exchanges. But don't worry! Your purchase is still guaranteed to be free of any material defects. If you find that your item has arrived broken, damaged or there is a problem with performance, please let us know right away and we will work with you to make the situation right. Your satisfaction is very important to us!

It is very important to contact our shop with any issues and communicate with us to help find a solution. Please DO NOT send any packages back to us without prior approval. Any items returned to the store without prior approval will be ineligible for a refund or compensation.

---Shipping---
We use USPS for all of our shipments.
Please always be available to receive delivery of your shipment on the day it arrives at your location. Tracking info is available for all USPS priority mail shipments. Leaving your new product sitting outside in or in a mailbox during hot or freezing weather, for even just a short time, may damage the appearance of your goods.

If you are LOCAL TO AIKEN, SC and want to arrange pickup/delivery to avoid paying shipping, please message me for a free shipping coupon code! THIS OFFER IS ONLY FOR CUSTOMERS LOCAL TO AIKEN, SC (within 15 miles if wanting delivery, pickup is what the customer is willing to drive to my shop). Thanks!

It is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure accurate shipping details are provided during checkout. If an item is returned as undeliverable or returned to sender due to an error in address provided, we can arrange to resend the item once new shipping charges are paid for or possibly refund the cost of the item under certain circumstances and if it was not a custom order. HOWEVER, no refund will be given for the cost of shipping. Please double check your shipping profile information before confirming purchase. If you notice that you have provided me with incorrect information, please contact me as soon as possible and I will make the changes to your shipment, provided the order has not already shipped.

---Ethics and Info on Soy---
I strongly believe in TRUTH IN MARKETING and strive to be as transparent about my ingredients, supplies, and values as possible!

All of our candles are made with Vegan 100% All Natural Soy wax, grown and produced right here in the U.S.A.!

Why not use organic, non- GMO soy wax? Short answer, it doesn't exist. It's a sad truth. There are no suppliers of organic, non-GMO soy wax for candle making anywhere in the US, and ones around the globe are becoming fewer and fewer. The ones that still do exist can not claim their crops are not contaminated.

**Chances are that if you see someone labeling their soy candles as organic, non-GMO, they are either mistaken about their own supplies or they not being honest.**

We make our candles with Premium fragrance oils which are approved for use in candles by the FDA and National Candle Association.

If you are looking for candles or wax melts made purely with essential oils, this is not something I currently offer for a couple of reasons.

1. Essential oils with no additives are known to be unstable in soy wax alone, causing the end product to perform poorly, if at all. Because EO's do not mix well with soy wax alone, it can also mean that some areas of the candle have a higher than safe EO concentration and that is dangerous for your health.

2. Not only would you get a product that may not perform well, the cost would be much greater than your typical wax melt as concentrated essential oils are more expensive per ounce.

Most of my fragrances ( and especially any that you would typically find in nature, such as lavender) are essential oil based with added stabilizers to ensure performance. Others are made with synthetic blends, but all are tested to be safe!

To address concerns about toxins, all of the fragrances I use are tested and approved for use in candles by the FDA and National Candle Association. Our candles/wax melts do not contain parabens or lead. If Phthalates are of concern to you, I take the time to mark every fragrance that are phthalate free with a ^ in the description.

All of our Bath and Body line items feature all natural (organic and non-GMO, when possible) ingredients and safe, cosmetic grade fragrances!

We don't invest in fancy packaging so that we can spend more on the good ingredients your body deserves and keep our prices low!

I create and package every item in my store by hand, with the exception of some candle holders, which I buy and turn into kits that include my handmade candles, and the candle/wax warmers.

Need items for your wedding, birthday, or any event? I do bulk orders! Create a custom order today!

Thanks for visiting! :D

About

The History Of Around The Home Decor

Hello!

I'm Emily, Founder of Around The Home Decor™,

When I started this company back in 2013, it was a way for me to help out my family and stay busy while my husband, recently retired from his Army career, was away on business. Being a stay at home mom of two beautiful girls, I was living my dream, but I always wanted to do more with my background in business management and my creative flare.

Today, this company is so much more than a hobby to me! It was always my intention to market a product that not only was beautiful, but one that also was not going to be harmful to the Earth and the people that trust me to bring my product into their homes. I have developed practices over the years that work to achieve this very goal and it all began with the choice to use soy wax in my candles. As far as candles go, it really is the best choice all around for being Earth friendly and at the same time being a beautiful wax that burns clean.

On top of the choice to use wax made from soy grown right here in the USA, I also make a commitment to reduce my impact on the environment in any way I can. Some things I do to achieve this are:

~Produce my products with organic materials when possible, but always all natural!

~Choose ingredients that are as locally made as possible to reduce shipping impacts. I research every item I buy and try to find a source as close to my business as I can. In fact, my biggest supplier is only one state over and a leader in the industry, one of the first to offer carbon neutral shipping! They also only use biodegradable packing material! I always buy local when it is possible and always try to buy items made here in the USA!

~Choose containers that can be recycled, upcycled, or reused in some way. It is important to me that I produce as little waste as possible and strive to be a zero waste company. I offer a unique container recycling program for my customers who are as committed to the environment as I am.

~Recycle all shipping materials I receive during shipments of my supplies. All of the cardboard boxes or packing materials that my materials arrive in either get recycled at the recycling center or reused to pack my finished products for shipping out to customers.

When you choose to buy a bath, body or candle product from Around The Home Decor, you are making a statement that you care about the Earth while getting to enjoy the benefits of an all natural, clean, beautiful product! Thank you to all of my customers! You are the reason I love doing what I do!

-Emily Hargrave

P.S.

Yes, I am a little bit nerdy and a whole lot geeky and like to escape into my fandoms from time to time. Check out my Nerdgasm category if you feel the same! :P
