Clarksville Vintage Fair - Clarksville TN October 6, 2018

Designer by day, candlemaker by night.

I have loved candles for as long as I can remember. I got my love of candles from my mom, who loved having them all around the house. When I started making candles, she was the one that helped me make my very first candle.

I'm a self-employed graphic and web designer by day, owner of January Creative. I started making candles as a hobby to get away from the computer at night and to find something creative and relaxing to do.

Candlemaking has afforded me the ability to enjoy creating something with my hands, and has given me time away from the computer which I love. I love design and everything about it, so you will see all of my tags and visual identity well-designed as well.

I love that my candles are non-toxic as well. After reading about the differences between soy and paraffin, it was a no brainer to go with soy as a better and more eco friendly way to enjoy candles. :)

Frequently asked questions
Can you tell me more about your candles?

All of my candles are made from small batches with all natural soy wax, beeswax, and phthalate free fragrance oils. The soy wax comes from US grown soy beans. My candles are eco-friendly and much healthier for you and your family than traditional paraffin candles.

I test all of my soy scented candles to ensure they burn properly, have an accurate scent, and have strong scent throws both unlit and lint. My candles burn cleanly and with no smoke or black residue around the rim.

Essential oils: 95% of essential oils are toxic when burned (especially for pets) and highly flammable. It's not recommend to have 100% pure essential oils in candles of any kind of wax.

What makes Candleflare candles better/different?

My soy candles are better than other soy candles you've burned before. Most soy candles after being burned cool with surfaces being pitted, bumpy, frosted, and otherwise unsightly, which is often a drawback to having soy candles over paraffin candles.

Candleflare soy candles cool to a smooth surface after burning with very few defects on the candle surface. I've worked on, tested, and perfected the perfect balance of all natural soy wax and beeswax to create an amazing soy candle that will look beautiful when you receive it, during burning, and after it cools.

Custom and personalized orders

Want to customize this candle with a unique label, some ribbon, or something else? Looking to have these at an event? Wanting wedding favor candles, baby shower candles, or bridal shower candles? I can do just about anything you are wanting! Send me a message and let's chat!

Why so much for International Shipping?

The way that Etsy structures entering in shipping rates is crazy unintuitive. The rate you're being charged is likely not right. If you're concerned about the cost of shipping internationally, please reach out to me for an accurate shipping rate. If necessary, I'm happy to make you a custom listing to accurately charge the right and cheapest international rate.

How do I use the wax melts / wax tarts?

Wax melts/wax tarts can be used in both electric warmers and tealight warmers. Break one to two cubes off of the solid wax brick and place in the top of your empty and clean warmer. Wax melts/tarts can be mixed with other fragrances to make your own unique fragrances. They can be melted and remelted as many times as desired or until the fragrance has burned off.

When you're ready to change out your wax melt/wax tart to another fragrance, turn off/blow out your warmer, let it sit for five to ten minutes (or until wax becomes slushy), take a paper towel and clean out remaining wax. When warmer is completely cool, any remaining wax can be wiped away with warm water and soap.

Can I order on Etsy and pick up locally?

It's awesome that you're local, however, I currently do not offer local pickup at this time.

I do, however, allow orders to be placed and held for pickup before one of my local craft show events.

If you are wanting to pick up an order at one of my events coming up (listed in the local section of my Etsy shop), please contact me before placing your order. Failure to do so may result in your order not being held or charged shipping fees.

Wholesale availability

I do offer candles for wholesale. Please contact me ahead of your order for wholesale information and pricing.

How long do you let your candles and melts cure for?

I let my candles and wax melts cure for a minimum of 7 days before they are delivered to you, unless otherwise stated in a conversation with you. It's best to wait 7 to 14 days from the made date before using your candle or wax melt to get the best scent throw.

With soy candles and wax melts, the longer they cure, the better they perform with better scent throws. All of my products are dated the day they were made, so you know exactly how long your candle or wax melt has been curing for.

Do you sell your seasonal scents year round?

Yes indeed! If you love Pumpkin Spice in the summer, I will have it. Want Citronella in December? I have that too!

I'm in Tennessee, do I have to pay sales tax?

Yes. Due to Tennessee law, I am obligated, registered, and required to collect, report, and pay sales tax. If you are shipping to a Tennessee address, you will be charge sales tax at checkout.

If you are shipping to an address outside of Tennessee, you will not be charged sales tax.
