Our Frequently Asked Questions

Each candle comes with a dust cover or label describing the burning instructions.

Trim your wick to ¼” before each burn. Allow the melt pool to reach the edges of the container before extinguishing. This is roughly 3 to 4 hours for our signature boxed candles. The rule of thumb is 1 hour for each inch of the container’s diameter. This will allow the candle to burn cleanly and evenly. Candles have memory so if you extinguish it too quickly, you may experience tunneling.

To prevent fire and serious injury, burn your candle within sight. Keep away from drafts. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Never burn your candle on or near anything that can catch fire.

Each candle is made from the finest, local and ethically sourced materials. We use simple, high-quality ingredients, free of any potentially harmful additives. We choose to work with premium soy wax as it burns cleanly, consistently and longer than traditional paraffin candles. Soy wax is also natural and washes away easily with a soap and water.

Our fragrance is the highest quality, cosmetic-grade. We use a combination of natural, essential oils and perfume-grade fine fragrance.

We use 100% cotton wicks free from any metal cores.

When burning according to our recommended instructions, our signature box candles will burn for approximately 60 hours.

Each candle produces a rich, long-lasting fragrance that gently fills the room. While it does help to eliminate odors, it’s not specially designed to be a room deodorizer.
