About

My husband and I love candles and vintage glassware. Our 25 year passion for antique glassware led me to start, RetroWix. I hand-pour soy candles into retro/vintage and reclaimed glassware found in antique stores from all over the country. We use 100% natural soy based wax from US grown soybeans that does not contain genetically modified (GM) material. Along with repurposing glassware and thrifted items, our product reduces negative impact on the environment.

RetroWix candles are beautiful and unique pieces that make lovely gifts and will be cherished for years to come.

Hope you and your loved ones enjoy as much as we do!

Frequently asked questions

Begin by trimming the wick to ¼” prior to lighting. When you are finished, let the candle completely cool before relighting. Always trim the wick before relighting to help cut down smoking and large flame which will help protect the glass. A wick trimmer is worth the small investment. (If you don't have a wick trimmer, use a fingernail clipper to remove the top of the burned portion of the wick prior to relighting). Do not allow wick trimmings to accumulate in the melted wax pool. Very Important...Do not burn your candle lower than ½” from the bottom of the container to prevent glass breakage.


~Candles are for adult use only.
~To prevent fire, keep any burning candle within sight.
~Keep out of reach of children and pets.
~Never burn a candle near anything that can catch fire. Burn only on a stable and heat resistant surface.
~Do not burn on a heat-absorbing surface such as glass or marble.
~Keep out of drafts, and keep wick trimmed, or candle will smoke.
~If flame becomes too large, extinguish candle and trim wick.
~Do not touch, move or trim candle while hot or wax is liquid. ~Discontinue use when wax is ½” from bottom.
~If burned further than ½” from bottom, glass containers may break.


Soy wax washes off RetroWix containers with good ole soap and warm water. Remove excess wax carefully. It will break apart easily. Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use. Once you have removed the wax, you can wash container with warm water and soap. If the wick is still adhered, use hot tap water to help loosen the glue that is adhered to the bottom of wick. Carefully remove using an non-sharp object to gently lift the metal bottom of the wick. Repeat if necessary. Please make sure you are careful not to get soy wax in your plumbing. It will still harden and can cause problems.
