"You really have the best smelling candles around!! All the others smell fake and weird. Thanks a bunch." ~RAE, Altoona IA
Our candles are made from 100% American soy wax in small craft batches of up to 9 at a time. We use the maximum of fragrance oil per volume that soy wax can hold. The natural fragrance oils, tints and braided cotton wicks are cruelty free for a candle experience you can feel good about. We use the maximum amount of fragrance oil that the soy wax will hold without creating an oily patch on the top, so rest assured that when you walk into a room where one of our candles is burning, you will definitely smell the difference. Each Soy Wax Candle costs $8.
We pour our candles into 8-ounce quilted crystal jelly jars because they are designed to hold up to extremes of heat and pressure which exceed any stress they might come under as candles, whether you light them or set them on a candle warmer. The quilted pattern looks brilliant with a flame dancing within, and the lid offers a safe way of snuffing out your candle when you come to the end of each use.
Because we add the tint and fragrance when the wax is melted, our candles can fill a room with scent from the first time they are lit, to whenever that last drop is melted. These candles burn an average of 44 hours and have a low enough melting temperature that most people can comfortably touch the wax and use it as a lotion. (Please don't do that when the wick is lit) We have had customers tell us about their kids, grandkids and pets who have tipped these candles over, spilled wax on themselves, and suffered no burns!
Since these are hand-crafted and tint lots vary, these candles may not be exactly the same color from one order to the next, or within a single large order. Volume discount pricing is available on quantities of twelve or more candles. Call Mark at 515-240-2178 for more information.
Our Soy Wax Candles can be shipped during extreme temperatures, but we do like to keep an eye on the weather along their journey, as we don't like for them to potentially sit in a brutal truck environment over the weekend. Please note that there may be slight shipping delays if extreme temperatures are being forecast for any point along the shipping route.
