About

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

Born in 2010, Handmade Habitat is an all natural candle + beauty goods company that firmly believes in the power of harnessing Mother Earth's natural materials to create products that in turn provide a healthy and happy home, body and planet.

Owner and maker Amina Ahmad is a lifelong crafter that painted, sewed and made everything in her life from large closet murals to her own prom dress growing up. She was a self-diagnosed candle addict early in life and 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 and home. After a few successful candle-making experiments, she started making them to sell.

Handmade Habitat candles are consciously hand crafted with 100% US produced soy wax, scented with all natural fragrance oils and essential oils, and embedded with eco-friendly braided, cotton + recycled paper wicks. Handmade Habitat beauty goods are nostalgically-inspired and contain only all natural ingredients such as rose water, organic jojoba oil, coconut oil, Himalayan salt and organic lavender buds. We ensure that you are only putting the best nourishing ingredients on your body and in your home.

Our work aims to bring inspiration and presence to the every day, and a little peace and ease in between the chaotic moments of life.

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.
