FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are your candles made of? 

All of our candles are hand crafted using only sustainably sourced soy wax.  We have chosen this vegetable based wax because it burns cooler and slower, therefore increasing the life of your candle.  Another benefit to soy wax is, unlike paraffin, it burns much cleaner, making it a much better option for the benefit of you and your family, as well as the environment.  Lastly, unlike beeswax, soy wax is 100% vegan, which is VERY important to us. 

What is the burn time for your candles?

Our 16oz candles have a burn time of +/- 60 hours. The 8oz candles have a burn time of +/-30 hours, and our travel tins have a burn time of +/- 20 hours.  Our 10.5oz Essentials range candles has a burn time of +/- 50 hours.  All burn times are approximate and dependent upon environmental factors, ie. air flow. 

Why don't you use paraffin wax in your candles?

There are a few reasons why we choose to not use paraffin wax.  Paraffin is a by-product of petroleum making it not very healthy to breathe in and it also leaves the black soot if the candle is burned too close to the wall.  It also burns very hot, shortening the life of your candle.  

Are your face and body products vegetarian and/or vegan friendly?

Yes, all of our products are cruelty free and are suitable for vegetarians.
