About

Howdy and welcome to my shop! I dabble in many different areas of creation but my focus right now is candle making. I started pouring candles as gifts for family just because I had a bunch of glass jars saved and needed to do something with them. (No, really.) I decided to make candles with the jars, and found that I really enjoyed the process!

I use soy wax for my candles, which burns cleaner and longer than traditional paraffin wax. Soy is also a sustainable, renewable resource, with the U.S.A. growing the majority of soy beans. (Who knew?!) Soy wax is super easy to clean up, using just warm water and soap, which comes in handy when I over-fill a container. This also makes all the containers my candles come in re-usable, just pop out the wick holder at the bottom, and wash with soap and water!

With the exception of my popular tins, the containers I use to pour my candles are made with recycled glass or had a previous life storing jam, baby food, and the like. I am always on the lookout for beautiful containers to pour a candle in, resulting in a one-of-a-kind candle. You will see some of these in my shop.

All of my candles are made just for you, after you place your order, for a truly custom-poured candle.

If you have a fragrance request, let me know, I will be happy to add it to my growing list.
