We have ordered several candles from Gilbert Soap Works, and have loved every one of them! My husband especially loves using them during his morning meditation time. In addition, their response to questions and any issues has always been fast, and super helpful! I highly recommend them, and will continue to purchase from them.

Additional Policies and FAQs

Our soaps are made from saponified organic oils of Olive, Palm, Sunflower and Coconut. Some of our soaps contain Shea Butter. All have purified water when being blended. Some of our soaps have color additives such as ultramarine pigment or a mineral oxide. We only use all natural colorants, no dyes or manmade chemical substitutes. We do this to give you the purest possible product for your body.

Obviously, candles are made of wax and wax melts at high temperatures. The melt point on our candles is approximately 130 degrees. All candles leave our home in pristine condition. I cannot control or be responsible for the environmental conditions they may see during shipping. So far this has not been an issue with any of our shipments.

Another fact is that soy wax frosts. Frost is a white crystalline structure that forms where the wax meets the glass container. This is a natural occurrence with all organic waxes and is caused by changes in temperature. Soy wax does not like extreme cold weather. We use a mixture of soy wax and other soy additives which still keeps our candles all natural. This helps reduce frosting, but it does not eliminate it. If you observe frosting on your candle, you can rest assure that the frosting will not affect the burning of your candle or its incredible fragrance!

Candle Burning Tips:

Safety: Always be careful with fire. Do not leave unattended. Do not leave children alone in a room with a burning candle. The container gets hot. Do not leave burning on a surface that could be damaged by heat. Practice safe candle burning! Follow the safety instructions on the label located on the bottom of your candle BEFORE lighting.

Candles burn best when the wick is kept centered and trimmed to ¼” or less. We use a braided coreless wick made from cotton. Many wicks have a thin zinc wire running through the center to help keep them stiff. Vapors from burning metal may not be good for you, so we use cotton coreless wicks. If a large melt pool develops, the wick may occasionally lean over. If this happens, simply blow out the candle, re-center the wick, and allow to cool. The candle will then be as good as new!
