Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting gelDlights candle shop. I hope you find as much joy in my products as I do!
I believe in providing the very best customer service that I possibly can. I live by the Golden Rule...treat others as you would like to be treated. So feel comfortable shopping with me!

I primarily use Perenco candle gel in the design of my candles. I otherwise use soy wax, paraffin wax, and various wax blends to achieve different effects.
As far as the scent goes, I use the best and safest that the candle-making industry has to offer. I use various reputable brands. Some of my candles will include other little items that lend themselves to the various themes I have..
river stones, metal objects, clay objects, glitter, glass items, other whimsical non-flammable items that catch my fancy.
Penreco candle gel is a very versatile medium and a lot can be suspended inside of it!
So I hope your as excited as I am with gelDlights.
May you find something here to Dlight your senses!-)

Returns and exchanges
If at any time you're unhappy with your item, just contact me and I will work with you to make sure we resolve the issue.
I accept credit cards through Paypal. You don't need to open a Paypal account to use your credit card for payment there.
I also accept checks and money orders. If you do use a check, I have to wait until it clears my bank before I send your order. When using a check or money order, please let me know its on the way through an Etsy Convo so I can look for it in the mail.
Remember! The sooner I receive payment, the sooner I can get your items out! :) For Paypal credit card users, payment is due immediately upon completing the order.
Geldlights is not responsible for the duties and taxes once your International package makes it to your Customs Agent(s).
If I don't receive payment for your order, or a notification of a check or money order being sent for the payment of your order, I hold the right to cancel said order. I won't do this without trying to contact you first.
I primarily use USPS Priority mail, and priority mail flat rate boxes for shipping. I found it to be most cost effective for my customers out of all the carriers out there. I also can use regular first class mail but since it takes longer, I tend not to. It keeps the possibility of a candle melting on the way to you at a minimum!

Since the size and weight of your order dictates the size box I use, I'll give you an estimated shipping price schedule here. These are all the rates for the USPS Flat Rate Boxes, both Domestic and International~

U.S. - small box($5.95), Medium box($11.40), Large box ($15.50)

Mexico/Canada - small box($13.00), Medium box($33.00), Large box($40.00)

All other areas - small box($17.00), medium box($48.00), Large box($61.00)

Overall, the time/distance method (Priority post) seems to be the most cost effective option per order. This is what Etsy uses to complete general mail orders through the site.

***** gelDlights not responsible for any duties or taxes due upon delivery.

All other materials used to get your candles safely to you are counted in the overall shipping price.

Expedited shipping and shipping by other carriers are also options you can request. I'll be more than happy to ship as fast as you need by whichever carrier you want me to. All you have to do is let me know this information in a convo along with which items you're interested in buying. Just let me know what you want, and I'll provide the service!
For my local Cincinnati/Dayton customers--you may contact me to arrange for pick up or delivery instead of shipping. You can reach me via an Etsy covo, or with my e-mail address 5zookeeper5 [!at]
Additional policies and FAQs
Because of the fragile nature of some of my candles, shipping during the hot weather months can be a challenge. To combat this, I am going to ship out orders on Mondays so that the order won't sit on a hot metal truck over the weekend. I will also use cold packs in your box if the region is particularly hot. It will run an extra 2.00 for the pack; (special handling).
During the moderate to cooler parts of the year, this wont be needed. I will contact you with this extra bit if I think it necessary to add to your order.
