We are huge proponents of the environment and in honor of Earth Day we would like to give you a closer look at the process that goes in to making our candles.
All our wax products inclusive of candles and melts are made from 100 % soy wax, cotton core wicks (where applicable) and phthalate and carcinogen free fragrance oils.
You may ask, with so many different waxes on the market why soy? When conducting our research we wanted to use a Wax that was as natural as possible. Soy wax was the first wax that we tested and it checked all the boxes, natural properties, clean burning, aesthetically pleasing and resulted in amazing smelling candles.
Candle making is such a science; it boils down to the right vessel, fragrance, wick selection and even the temperature of your candle studio and region you live in. Mind blown, I know!
Lets talk Wicks; we use the eco series cotton wicks, which again works perfectly with our vessels and scents that we chose. Our eco wicks are clean burning, resulting in no soot. Make sure you follow the candle care card information included in your package when you receive your candle. If you follow the steps on your candle care card, trim your wick between burn and etc.; you will enjoy a long lasting, clean burning candle every time.
“Lets, skip to the good part! Fragrance Oils, albeit all components of the candle making process is important, I can’t help but love sniffing those yummy fragrance oils.
There are so many different fragrance oil options on the market, but in keeping with our aim to ensure that we make our candles as eco-friendly as a candle can possibly be, we made sure that our fragrance oils did not only smell good, but were also free of harmful chemicals like phthalates and carcinogens. It was of utmost importance to us that our candles be non-toxic and safe to burn in your homes and ours.
We are also very happy to have candle supply companies like Candle Science who are leading the charge and going above and beyond in ensuring that the fragrance oils that they sell and that we use in your products are safe through their candle science clean scents initiative.
And finally, our vessels, both our large candles and our travel tins are purposely made in durable glass jars and tins which we encourage our customers to reuse and or recycle to cut down on the impact on the environment.
We hope that you got a little peek behind the curtain and understand why we do what we do and how we do it.
