Love this beautiful, high quality candle. It smells wonderful and goes lovely together with my blue-jarred Palo Santo candle. Thank you so much again. :)

I love the light palo santo scent from this candle. The brown jar color pairs nicely. It burns a long time. Love it.

Great scent. Package arrived faster than expected and included a nice, handwritten, personalized note. I do not have a ton of experience with buying candles, but compared to those I usually pick up that are commercially made, this one burns much longer. Who will complain about that.

These candles are the best! I shared them as gifts this year for all my favorite women in my life and they love them too! Keeps a sacred space smelling ancient and pure, the way palo santo does! If your thinking about one of these candles, you should totally get it!! I will be ordering many more to come ~*~

Is this supposed to smell like some musty old colored pencils that sat at the bottom of your backpack for over a decade? Oh well, that's the risk of buying candles online, and I'm sure there's other people who like the scent. On the positive, it did have a very strong throw, cute photography for the listing, and I like the overall look of everything. Free shipping for austinites is great too!

All natural, cruelty-free, vegan candles and scents inspired by mama Earth. Handcrafted with love in Austin, TX.
I've always been very drawn to scent. My mom says that even as a small child I was always opening jars and bottles just to smell what was in them. Candles quickly became an obsession. As I started reading more about candles I realized just how bad most commercial candles actually are. They are predominantly made from paraffin wax, which is a petroleum by-product created when crude oil is refined into gasoline. It's a nonrenewable source that contains many carcinogenic substances. I was horrified when I learned that such dangerous substances could be released into the air when burned. I knew I had to start making my own, natural candles. I do that by using all natural soy wax - which is a renewable resource, pure essential oils, 100% cotton wicks and reusable and recyclable containers and packaging. At the end of our journey we all return to the earth and my hope is to have left my little spot in the world better for it.
Soy Candle Burning Tips
- When burning your soy candle for the first time, it is important to allow the candle to burn for 2-3 hours. Soy wax has a "memory" and creating a proper melt pool helps to avoid the candle from "tunneling" down the center of the container causing you not to be able to enjoy the candle's full burn time (50+ hours). Allowing your soy candle to create it's initial memory burn will help the candle to create a full melt pool of wax, which increases the candle's scent throw and burn time.
- Always trim your wick to 1/4" before lighting your candle. Always burn your candle on a level, heat resistant surface. If the wick begins to have a large flame, starts flickering constantly, or if the wick becomes larger than 1/4" extinguish the flame and let cool for 1-2 hours, re-trim wick and re-light. Always keep the wick centered, this is best done after the candle has been extinguished and the wax is still soft.
