About

Consciously Crafted Au Naturel Soy Candles + Beauty Goods for Inspiration + Presence

Handmade Habitat is an all natural soy candle and beauty goods company to nurture and inspire the soul.

Inspired by nature and rooted in mindfulness, our work is consciously hand crafted to be healthy for the body, home and Mother Earth.

OUR PHILOSOPHY:
The world is chaotic but interconnected. The choices we make every day have consequences, and home is center for our worlds. This is the philosophy we bring to our work.We aim to bring a sense of calm and direction to our multifaceted lives. Centering and grounding at home so we can venture out into the busy world ready to face it head on and be inspired by the miracles of everyday life.
Our work uses eco-friendly materials, we boast a recycling program, our products fit a vegan-friendly lifestyle, and we do our best to live and make with a minimal footprint.

ABOUT THE MAKER:
Artist and chandler Amina Ahmad grew up in the rolling hills and bushy woods of the less glamorous parts of Maryland. After beginning her studies in Environmental Science and Policy at the University of Maryland, she soon discovered the toxic effects that candles can have on the environment, home, and ultimately, body.
As a lifelong DIYer, she started making her own eco-friendly soy candles in her college apartment. By using only natural materials, her candle creations would purely and non-toxically illuminate the home, uplift the spirit, and inspire the soul.Amina also dabbles in hand lettering, creative consulting and is a yoga teacher.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

We can totally do custom orders!
Custom orders may be subject to additional fees and longer processing times once the order is received. (We do have to make it from scratch, after all!)
If you are interested in purchasing bulk products as wedding or party favors, or for your own personal alter to Hey Arnold, contact us to make that happen! We offer discounts on bulk orders and can customize our candles to suit your event.

Care instructions

Candles should be burned for no more than four hours at a time.

Trim wick to 1/3 inch before burning. (When wicks are not trimmed, when you blow out your candle, the heaviness of the wick will cause it to sink into the melted wax and will be hard to retrieve to light your candle again. It also keeps flame height down!)

When 1/8 inch of wax remains, the candle will burn out.

Use hot water to wash out your candle container and use it in the future to store cotton balls, makeup, plants and more!

See how we reuse our containers on Instagram and our blog: handmadehabitat.co/journal & instagram.com/handmadehabitat

Gift wrapping and packaging

Would you like your order gift wrapped? We can do that for you for just $5. https://www.etsy.com/listing/166014755/gift-wrap-service?ref=shop_home_active_33

Our orders are wrapped and shipped as tightly as we can to prevent breakage, but in case the mailman was playing kickball with your candle, we also insure all packages.

IF YOUR PACKAGE ARRIVES DAMAGED, PLEASE SEND THE FOLLOWING TWO PHOTOS TO US VIA ETSY MESSENGER OR TO HELLO@HANDMADEHABITAT.CO
1- photo of the damaged item
2- photo of the package as you received it. Try to include inner packaging.

We will have a replacement product out to you immediately and will file an insurance claim with the carrier.
