Candle FAQ

Great question!! The burn time of our candles varies depending on the vessel and the environment in which the candle is burning​. Our Founders Collection Candle is designed to offer you over 50+ hours of burn time.

Oh, we are excited for you!! Make sure you burn your candle for 3-4 hours the first time around. You want to make sure your wax pool extends to both ends of the vessel before extinguishing. This will avoid tunnelling!​  Also don’t forget to trim your wick to 1/4"!

This is easier than you think!  To remove the extra wax, you can place it in the freezer and it should pop out of the vessel, or heat up the vessel with some hot water and scoop it out. Please do not dump down the drain!!

Great minds think alike!  We care for our environment and hope that you will enjoy this vessel for years beyond the initial candle scent. You can repurpose your vessel in so many different ways; as a flower plant, pencil/pen holder, makeup brush holder, etc. We would love to see how you repurpose yours - be sure to tag us IG to share your ideas and you may even be featured in one of our next posts!!

Excellent question!!  We use only 100% North American Eco-Friendly Soy wax, and lead free wicks.  Our complex scents are created by one premium fragrance house which uses only luxury ingredients which are based in essential oils.  All of our scents are phthalate free and paraben free.
