Other contributing factors to our sustainability plan include using recycled glass vessels, limiting plastic in packaging, using recycled and reused shipping materials, and thoughtful production with low water usage, limited landfill trash and a solar-powered studio.
Candles evoke warmth and comfort, scent boosts mood and cherished memories, and create an overall welcoming space. We believe you shouldn't have to worry about what is in your items, or how that will impact your home. We strive for transparency in our process and products.
Wax: American soy wax is local, more sustainable than petroleum-based paraffin, and easier to trace for ethical production than palm wax. The brand we use supports domestic farms, and is processed in the USA as well.
Scents: Fragrances are derived from plants and stabilized with human-made compounds, and are always phthalate-free. While they do contain essential oils, the fragrances are not simply the oils we use in other applications. For safety and quality purposes, only candle-rated fragrance oils should be used in candles. Some chandlers use only essential oils, which mostly dissipate in the melting process. Other companies label their products "with essential oils" but use fragrance oils, so that can be misleading. If you have questions, feel free to reach out.
Production: We strive to reduce the impact of creating, packaging, labeling, and shipping our goods. Items are handcrafted with care, tested thoroughly, and we stand behind each one.
Benefits: Soy candles burn cleaner than paraffin or parablend candles, which can cause air pollution, soot and smoke, and VOC release.
Above all, everything here is 100% vegan and cruelty free. We are certified by Leaping Bunny for ingredients and testing. Going vegan is not only great for your body, but it's amazing for the planet!
