Can I pick up my order?
Yes! If you live close by we can make arrangements. This will save you money for shipping and you will be able to get your candles quicker. We do not ship to APO/FPO addresses.
How long will it take to get my candles?
It all depends on where you live and how soon we can get them out to you. We make all of the candles to order so they are not sitting on a shelf getting old. We should be able to ship them out to you within 3-5 days, if not sooner!
How much is shipping?
We have searched high and low trying to figure out the best way to ship them to you at a reasonable price. Currently, we will be using the USPS.
What do I need to know about soy candles?
It is very important top know that soy candles have a memory. When you light a soy candle for the first time it remembers how far across the surface it melted. For best results and longest enjoyment of your soy candle let your candle surface completely liquify before extinguishing it. This will result in a longer lasting soy candle without the occurrence of tunneling down the center. Remember, keep your wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch, unless instructed otherwise. For example, the votive and tea lights have self-trimming wicks so no trimming is required.
Keep candles out of the sun; colors will fade. Natural candle wax will darken slightly.
Why do I see soot sometimes when my candle burns?
We have tested each one of these candle/wick combinations and they should virtually produce no soot. If you are finding that your candle is producing some soot, make sure the wick is trimmed to 1/4" and this will elimiate the problem. A draft will cause the candle to soot also. You are burning pure soy wax candles so the minimal soot you do see is not harmful to your health like the petrolum based candles that release toxins!
