I love making "Something Beautiful"! I find it very interesting to reuse an object for something than it was intended for, such as a teacup candle. All my candles or hand poured they are highly fragrant and last a loooong time.

All my soap is Cold Process and is handmade by me with all vegetable oils. Large bars are 4.5 ounces. I also have small bars that are 2.25 ounces just convo me if you would like the small size.

I design all my jewelry. I can do custom orders as well if you have a certain desin in mind let me know.

Finally I do weddings and showers and will custom your labels on any soap, tin or teacup candle for your special event. I also have designed pendants for bridesmaids.

SCENTS Available for custom orders: Please convo me and I will send you a list.


1. The first time you light your candle burn it until the entire top of the candle is liquefied so that it will burn evenly. A general rule of thumb is one hour per inch of width of candle. This will prevent any chance of tunneling and allow the wax "melt pool" to reach almost the edge of the container. In future burnings, all candles will only burn as far from the wick as they did the first time. This is referred to as a "candles memory".

2. After the first burn, never burn for more than 3-4 hours at a time, as it changes the composition of the wax and can affect the way it burns and smells. Natural soy wax may leave wax on side of jar after burning.

3. Always keep your wick trimmed! If you keep it trimmed to 1/4 inch, it will burn cleaner and more evenly.

4. Never leave a burning candle unattended or within reach of children, pets or a draft. Never put the Candle under any object or structure and make sure it is on a level surface.

5. Make sure the candle is on a heat resistant surface. As it burns down the bottom gets hot and can mark the surface.

6. Never attempt to pick up a candle when it is still hot, glass containers are fragile, you can drop it and possibly get burned.

7. Once a candle burns down to 1/2", PLEASE watch carefully.

9. Store your candles in a safe, cool, dry place away from direct sunlight!

10. Burn times will always vary depending on the placement of your candle. Drafty areas will burn slightly quicker. Burn times will also vary depending on the height of your wick. The longer the wick the quicker the candle will burn away.
